In a typical Indian restaurant food is served family style. I love this as it gives my husband and I the opportunity to serve ourselves as much as we want. I'll be honest here, Indian food isn't love at first sight but once you taste it you are sure to be pleased! On the left you'll see the Chicken Saag. Chicken Saag is a creamy spinach based food filled with amazing flavor. Above the Saag is the rice which is delicious when mixed in with the sides. Then there is the Tandoori chicken. I love the simplicity of this meat. It's well flavored and was perfectly tender too! Below the Chicken is Lamb Rogan Josh which is a Lamb Curry. Finally we have the Dal Makhani which are creamed lentils seasoned with garlic and ginger.
I have a special place in my heart for Saag so I can't deny that it was my favorite of the meal. They served all of this with fresh, warm Naan. I really enjoyed their soft Naan and appreciated how fresh it was!
If I could, I would share this treat with the entire world. This here is why I write a food blog; to let people like you know that you need to stop what you are doing and go try these! They are called Gulab Jarnun which according to their menu are " Milk Balls in syrup and rosewater".
This is Kheer. It is a rice pudding with a very subtle flavor. I think my husband appreciated a dessert that wasn't too sweet.
Do yourself a favor and order a Lassi. This was a Mango Lassi which is simply a mix of mango and yogurt. Our daughter and I loved sipping on this special treat!
Jewel of India was a jewel indeed and by far one of my favorite restaurants to visit. The owner was very friendly and kind. The servers were great and the environment was perfect! If I were you, I wouldn't hesitate to try this place out! You can even order it to go!
