India Bistro Roosevelt’s Top Summer Indian Food
Indian food is known for its flavorful combination of spices that make it such a distinct and delicious cuisine. The taste and techniques of Indian food are some of the most versatile in the world, with spices that can be adapted to reflect the ingredients of the season, such as summertime. Depending on the main elements of the dish, certain spices can elevate the flavors to encourage light, summery notes that can be enjoyed during the warmer months of the year.
Here are a few of the top dishes at India Bistro Roosevelt that are best enjoyed during the summer:
India Bistro Seafood Trio
Seafood is a popular main course choice during the summer because it’s not too heavy on a warm summer evening. Our Seafood Trio at India Bistro Roosevelt showcases king salmon, scallops, and prawns, all grilled in a tandoori oven, and finished with a creamy citrus sauce.
Indian food is often cooked in a tandoor, resulting in what’s known as tandoori. This cooking method creates a consistent temperature that allows the food to cook at high, even temperatures. We use the tandoor in our restaurant to create our Tandoori Combo: A combination of tandoor chicken, lamb, chicken tikka, seekh kebab, fish, and prawns served together for a filling meal bursting with the traditional flavors of Indian cuisine.
Mangoes are commonly used in Indian cooking, both in savory and sweet dishes. One of our favorite dishes that use mangoes as a main ingredient is our Mango Chicken. This entree consists of boneless marinated chicken breast simmered in special cashew and mango curry sauce. We cook the tender pieces of chicken in the sauce so that each bite is full of the sweet and tangy notes of mango.
If you’re looking for a delicious and summery plant-based dish, give our Eggplant Bhartha a try! We take a whole eggplant and bake it over an open flame, then mash it and season it with fresh herbs and spices. The unique flavors and textures of this dish are sure to keep you coming back for more!
