Tadka Indian Bistro: The Tour

1 of 16

 

 

The menu of Indian food at Tadka is fairly predictable and sticks mainly to northern and central Indian cuisine, but you won't find a dull dish here, thanks to the Indian cooking technique the restaurant is named after: tadka. The technique involves toasting whole spices in ghee (clarified butter) or other cooking oil to slowly release the full, robust flavor within. This unpretentious restaurant is especially good with hearty, meat-free options, like the standout favorite malai kofta (paneer, potatoes, and other vegetables formed into a soft hybrid of a dumpling and a meatless meatball), the signature murgh saffron (chicken with saffron), badam kheer (a mild rice pudding with a scattering of nuts), and baigan bartha (Tandoori-roasted eggplant and fresh peas). Tadka also serves a lunch buffet for a very reasonable $9.95. PHOTOS BY EMILY UTNE.
