For those who consider themselves true Indian food devotees: what is your favorite thing to order at restaurants?

  1. Malai Kofta....YUUUUUUUUUMMMMM! I'm not a vegetarian by any means, but there is something about those little veggie and chickpea flour balls that is so good. Malai Kofta and some garlic naan to wipe up the sauce? Nothing beats it.

    1. Palak paneer -- spinach with cheese cubes. Every time. Yum.

          Lamb Korma....Lamb Vindaloo and Aluu Gobi....w/ garlic Na'an......perfect combination of flavors

        2. re: homecook1

          My favorite as well, along with a good Masala and garlic roti

        3. I love malai kofta, and palak paneer, and today someone at my work had some channa massala which is a darn good way to eat your legumes. But what really gets me is a great samosa!

          1. palak paneer devotee here, too!

            Onion Bhaji's..

              Any sort of dahl (chick peas, lentils, etc.) and most vegetable curries (eggplant, cauliflower or tomato and potato, etc).

              This is why we often go to buffets. For my wife, all curries must be based on meat or fish, so she can have them, and I can get my veggies,

              1. re: purple goddess

                matar paneer and palak paneer

                and masala dosa, when available

              2. Makhani murghi (the infamous "Butter chicken") and palak paneer. A really good, flaky lamb samosa can do me in, too. If I'm feeling especially decadent, I do love mutton biryani, some very spicy pav bhaji and gulab jamun.
