* Eating 52 Countries In 52 Weeks - Week 1 - INDIA

We started our challenge with the easier to find Indian Cuisine on our first week since our original choice of Swedish Cuisine was only available at the local IKEA and we decided we should do better on our first attempt at this culinary adventure. 

Knowing that India has a wide and deep cuisine expanding to all points of the compass, we were hoping to hit the buffet at Natraj Cuisine of India in Laguna Hills to sample much variety. However, by the time we arrived at the restaurant mid-afternoon the buffet was no more.

We browsed the rich menu while we broke little pieces of Roti that was immediately served in a nice arrangement, garnishing them with different hot sauces that were already on the white linen laid table. We ordered Lamb Tikka Masala and Saag Paneer with Rice, Papad Paneer Rolls and the Bread Sampler - Kulcha with Keema, Layered Paratha, and Plain Naan.

Papad Paneer Rolls arrived first as the starters. These very delicious bite size fried cheese covered in urad flour (papad) were a good lead to the more saucy dishes that followed. While the Lamb Tikka Masala looked gloriously colorful next to the muddy shade of Saag Paneer they were equally decadent wrapped in the various kinds of bread we ordered.

कृपया भोजन का आनंद लीजिये !
