ENTREES
(All Entrees are served with white Basmati Rice. $2.00 charge for Pulao Rice)
TANDOORI SPECIALITIES

     The Tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven most closely identified with Indian cooking. This is an excellent method of baking meats and bread. The meat is first marinated in a roseate spice mixture, and then impaled on long metal skewers that are lowered into the tandoor. Sheets of bread dough, called Naan, are also slapped against the sides of the oven and peeled off when crisply charred and blistered. By this cylindrical clay oven cooking the meat is evenly done from all the sides & gives a real good taste to the food. Royal Indian Restaurant has made a specialty of this lean savory method of cooking for your pleasure.

MASALA CURRY
     Masala is the term used in Indian Cuisines to describe a special mixture of many spices. The term “Masala” on its own is used by cookery writers to refer a freshly made spicy sauce or gravy, Curry is the English description of any of a general variety of spiced dishes, best-known in South Asian cuisines, but specifically, its roots come from India. Dishes that are often classified as curries in Europe and America are rarely called curries in the native language. Masala Curry is based on onion, tomatoes, cream, herbs & spices.

 

VINDALOO (Hot)
     Vindaloo is a popular Indian dish, first brought to Goa (India) by the Portuguese and soon became a pleasing Indian meal often served during special occasions. Originally known in Portuguese as Vinha d'Alho, it soon received the Indian treatment of adding plentiful amounts of spice and chili. The curry is a blend of hot spices, red chili peppers with a dash of vinegar commonly served with chicken or lamb. The dish has gained popularity in Britain, and has become a common fixture at Indian restaurants and curry houses. In colloquial English it is often referred to as a "Vindy" and is well known for its heat, being one of the hotter curries available. The popularity of the dish even inspired an English football song for the 1998 World Cup.

 

METHI (Fenugreek)
     Methi sauce is based on Fenugreek leaves, which is very commonly used in Indian food and has a special aroma. Fenugreek is used both as an herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed). It is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop. The fenugreek seed, commonly called Methi is frequently used in the preparation of pickles, curry powders and pastes, and is often encountered in the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. The young leaves and sprouts of fenugreek are eaten as greens and the fresh or dried leaves are used to flavor other dishes. In India, Methi is also often used as a natural herbal medicine in the treatment of diabetes and bloat.

 

SPINACH FUSION (Palak)
     In India Spinach is slow cooked with Onions, Tomatoes, spices & touch of Gram (chickpea) flour to bring out the good Flavor.
The Spinach fusion (Palak) dishes use this specially cooked spinach as the gravy base. We serve it Mild, Medium or Hot.

    
KORMA
     Korma, also spelled Qorma or Kurma, is a mild curry that originated in India and is often made with yoghurt sauce, cream, or   nuts. Korma is usually mild and typically made with coconut cream. It is especially used with chicken, Lamb & Seafood although Vegetarian kormas also exist.The flavour is based on a mixture of spices: coriander, cumin, cardamom, and cloves roughly in the ratio 4:4:1:1, combined with yoghurt and/or cream kept below curdling temperature and incorporated slowly and carefully. Nuts are used but not in great quantities; almonds or cashews appear to work well. (People with Allergies from the ingredients please inform your server).

 

MANGO
     Our Mango cuisine is made in a sweet and spicy sauce made from mango fruit. MANGO is a tropical fruit and is considered as the King of all fruits in India. India is number one producer of Mango in the world and one can find more than 150 different variety of this fruit. Native to the Southern and Southeast Asian continent fossil records were found of this fruit in India dating back 25 to 30 million years. Reference to mangos as the "food of the gods" can be found in the Hindu Vedas (Hindu relics).

 

COASTAL COCONUT
     Coconut is an essential part of the Indian diet all along its vast peninsular coast. It is consumed raw in many ways as coconut water, coconut milk, coconut meat (tender part of the seed), dried and grated coconut. Coconut oil is the base of several Indian cosmetics and is considered great for the health of hair and skin. Our Coconut cuisine is smooth gravy made with aromatic coastal Indian spices simmered in coconut milk and cream of coconut.

 

BIRYANI
     Biryani is derived from the Persian word beryā (n), which means “fried”, or "roasted". Biryani is an Asian rice dish made from a mixture of spices, basmati rice, meat/vegetables and yogurt. There are many kinds of biryanis and each kind has uniqueness about it. From East to West & north to south India, there are different varieties of the dish. It can be considered a Rice casserole dish, as the ingredients are ideally cooked together in the final phase and is time-consuming to prepare. Biryani can traditionally be made in as many as 49 different types.
