We offer an international buffet that changes every day. The choices always include:
Dal (soup) - A classic and nutritious bean soup, warmly spiced and made from various Indian relatives of the lentil. Dal beans contain more protein (up to 40%) than domestic varieties, and when combined with whole grains provide complete protein, with the full spectrum of amino acids.
Pullao (rice) - Unpolished jasmine or basmati rice cooked in countless combinations with various vegetables, nuts and spices. We also offer brown rice daily on the buffet.
Sabji (vegetable curry) - A delicious combination of vegetables, or a single vegetable, delicately spiced. We use only the best fresh vegetables available in season.
Steamed Vegetables - For those who prefer to keep it simple, we also offer garden fresh vegetables, lightly steamed, with a lemon-tahini sauce you can add if you like.
International Entrée - We offer a different main dish selection every evening. Favorites include lasagna, enchiladas, quiche, and barbecued tofu.
Pakora (savory) - Vegetable pieces dipped in a spicy chickpea flour batter and deep-fried. Crispy on the outside, and moist and tender on the inside.
Chutney (relish) - A zesty condiment made from different varieties of fresh fruit. Excellent with pakoras.
Achar (pickle) - A fiery condiment made with jalapeno peppers for those who want to add more heat to their meal.
Pappadam (spiced wafer) - These paper-thin wafers are made from ground urad dal beans which are made into a dough, rolled out and sun-dried, and then roasted until crisp.
Homemade Breads - Our famous whole wheat and cinnamon-raisin breads are baked fresh every day. Also available by the loaf.
Tamarind Tea - Our original fruit drink, made from the tart pulp extracted from the pod of the tamarind tree. Better than lemonade.
Halvah (farina cake) - A fluffy grain dessert made from toasted farina, and combined with nuts or fruit for a countless variety of flavors.
Kheer (rice pudding) - A creamy dessert made from fresh milk and rice, and flavored with cardamom, saffron, rose essence, nuts or fruit
All selections include soup, bread, drink and dessert!
