I am not much of an Indian connoisseur, but I know what tastes good. Back when I was in college, there were these two girls that lived in the dorms on my floor, which shared a community kitchen and they were always cooking with curry. During those times, I was still living in my culinary bubble, so I found the smell repulsive.
About two years ago, some friends had taken me to Taj Mahal, it was my first time trying Indian food. They did all the ordering and it was great! Since that first experience, I have been trying the Indian food all over Sofia: Ramayan (which I am currently boycotting because they owe money to the Sofia Insider’s Guide), Saffron and well that’s about it, let me know if there are some other interesting gems I am missing.
We started with the mixed appetizers, which had vegetable and lamb samosas and vegetable and chicken pakoras, served with an intensely green mint sauce. They were extremely tasty. I have never had pakoras before, but I am adding them to my list of things to learn how to make.
When I eat Indian, I tend to veer towards dishes that have no chili peppers , , meaning that I am boring… I know… very boring.
