For the Love of Indian Food—5 Indian Dishes to Have if You Have a Sensitive Stomach

Is your usually sensitive tummy preventing you from stepping into the hottest Indian eateries in town? Here’s a secret: not all Indian food is hot and heavy on the stomach. India prides itself on being one of the most diverse nations on the planet—and the same applies to our food!

If you’re looking for Indian food that isn’t spicy, look no further! We’ve compiled a list of dishes that are delicious and gentle on your belly.

Check them out!

Mango Chicken

You’ve heard of orange chicken, but now it’s time to give mango chicken a go! Mango chicken is one of our specialties, and lucky for you, it’s also easy on the belly!

Mangos are native to India and aren’t easy to find in other parts of the world, which is what makes our mango chicken such a treat.

Mango chicken curry is made up of a delicious mango and boneless chicken duo, cooked with a fragrant mix of traditional Indian spices in a coconut cream-based curry. The thick curry is sweet and tangy and can be enjoyed with naan or rice.

Chicken Jalfrezi

Chicken Jalfrezi is a North Indian classic. Chicken jalfrezi is the go-to dish for dieters who’re looking for scrumptious Indian food that is gentle on the tummy.

Unlike many other classic Indian dishes, chicken jalfrezi isn’t hot and spicy. It’s cooked with tomatoes, onions, and yogurt. Cumin and garam masala are added to give the dish an earthy flavor.

Order some naan bread on the side and enjoy a mouthwatering plate of jalfrezi the next time you’re at Indian Bistro Roosevelt.

Lamb Saag

Lamb saag is an exquisite combination of spinach and lamb. The curry is only mildly spiced, making it perfect for people with sensitive stomachs.

The lamb is slow-cooked in a pressure cooker, making it tender and succulent.

Cream is added to the dish toward the end, giving it a rich, velvety texture that melts in your mouth.

Have it with warm garlic naan and treat yourself to one of North Indian’s most-loved homey dishes.

Fish Curry (Goa)

Goa is known for its beaches and heavenly food. Our fish curry is all you’d expect from Goan style food. It’s warm, light and rich in flavor.

As per Goan tradition, the dish is prepared by marinating fish in turmeric powder, salt, and other spices, and is cooked in a mix of coconut and Indian herbs.

It’s sweet and tangy taste will leave you asking for more.

Lamb Methi Curry

Our lamb methi (fenugreek) curry is sure to become a favorite among all meat-lovers. The dish consists of succulent pieces of lamb cooked to perfection which sit on top of a rich, creamy curry that’s infused with the fragrance of fenugreek, garlic, and mustard.

We hold back the spices on this one and let the herbs work their magic!
