Naan bread is a must with every dish when enjoying amazing food from a tasty Indian restaurant in Takoma Park, DC’s unique artsy suburb. You should go ahead and order up extra, and it’s so good that you will run out and want more right away. Naan is a great way to enjoy all kinds of Indian dishes. Put some rice and your dish into a nice open sandwich. Not as fluffy as some other restaurants serve it. This is not a bad thing, and it was very soft and yet tough to hold all that food we were packing on top. Went great with our super yummy Paneer Tikka. Garlic was light and yet strong enough to give any dish a little kick.
It is getting cheesy all over our vegetarian dosa, Indian style savory crepe from a tasty Indian restaurant in Takoma Park, DC’s unique artsy suburb. Now that we have been introduced to paneer, we can’t get enough of it. Dosa is one of the few Indian dishes that we familiar with and a big fan of. A South Indian dish, dosa is a fermented thing crepe made from rice batter and black lentils and usually packed with some nice and tasty stuff on the inside. It’s served hard and very crunchy most of the time, but this is more of a crepe and soft kind of dosa. It is stuffed with some very lovely shredded fresh and unaged, acid-set, non-melting paneer cheese. It has a very similar blue cheese flavor but with a different texture. Usually comes as blocks; it’s shredded in this dish, which gives it a much lighter texture. You can’t have dosa without some lovely dipping sauces, ranging from mild to super spicy. Smaller than some other dosas, but they are densely packed with paneer cheese mix. They will fill you up fast, and it’s best to share with friends so you can enjoy more of their fun menu. It’s a delicious dish perfect for vegetarians ad even meat lovers like me.

Get some hot cheese action with a vegetarian paneer dish from a tasty Indian restaurant in Takoma Park, DC’s unique artsy suburb. So good that you might forget you love meat for a moment and enjoy it all its cheesy glory. Paneer dish came very highly recommended to us by one of our Vegetarian nomster fans. Finally, a search for our favorite Indian dish is complete—giant pieces of BBQ homemade cubes of Paneer cheese, a traditional Indian ingredient in vegetarian dishes. Paneer is an un-aged, non-melting farmer cheese or curd cheese made by curdling heated milk with lemon juice or other acids. In a way, it’s a bit like blue cheese with a very similar texture and flavor levels. It comes in a bowl of traditional thick gooey tomato sauce, yet it doesn’t have too much tomato flavor. Usually, I wouldn’t say I like tomato sauce because of overpowering flavors, but not in this dish. It almost tastes like something else, which our guess is the cheese. Great with white rice on top of naan bread. Not too spicy, so you won’t burn your mouth away and yet not bland at all, this is a perfect dish. This is hands down our new favorite Indian dish with an easy name to remember for next time.
