Indian Restaurants

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm told that all Indian Restaurants are safe, except for the obvious things like Naan, Chapati, etc.

Is this true?

Our own local Indian here in Essex is very safe and I never have a problem. But, I'm travelling to London tomorrow to meet a friend from the US who's a curry fanatic, and am a little worried about eating in a different/new restaurant.

Mike

The Trimph dining cards list the following ingredients as unsafe: suji(rava), maida, roti, sevian, hing(asafetida)

the following as questoinable: kofta, gravy, saag paneer(which may contain maida), make sure masalas do not contain hing

We eat at an Indian place almost every weekend. It is the safest place for me that's why we go so often. I don't know what I would have done without it. They serve more homestyle with fresh ingredients and very simple fresh recipies. I can eat almost everything they serve. However, there is another Indian place down the road and they serve a little different style. There dishes are more meat based and complex in flavor and ingredients. There are a few dishes that I could not have other than the obvious. But, the waiter offered to have the chef make a gluten-free version of one of the ones that I cuoldn't have. I think it varies, so you just have to ask. The ingredients I listed above are in some dishes at both restaurants.

I would still check as you don't know what ingredients they are using even if it is the same dish you are used to eating elsewhere. We go to an Indian restaurant nearby here in Melbourne and they are very good. They understand exactly what dishes are safe to eat.

Sorry Mike

But being indian myself I can safely say this,

Be Very Carefull on Indian Resturants most of the comercial resturants use flour to thicken curry's rathert than cook slowly as is needed.

Without sounding bad an Indian waiter would rather say yes its ok to eat rather than tell you the truth stick to only expensive resturants with a reputation or go to the really small cheap ones were you only see indians eating there.
