    For clarification, I'm talking Hadji, not Tonto.

    Discuss.....

      I wouldn't class Indian food as Hadji; isn't that more muslim? Regardless, I assume that you mean food from India. Indian food ranks second behind Mexican for me as favorite. A good curry is full of intense flavors and doesn't have to be super spicy, and a good raita goes along well to cool it off. Add in some naan bread and butter chicken and you're set. Don't shy away from a goat curry either; it's the best IMO.The music, not so much.

          Love Indian food. As long as it’s well prepared I think it’s one of the great cuisines of the world. We have a buffet we go to that is Brilliant. On the expensive side but the food is actually first class. Not your typical buffet. Very gourmet. The music I can do without.....

            Butter chicken is good. The coconut rice is good. The mixed vegetables are good. Not to spicy those. There spicy stuff will make your a”.@s burn for a week.

            Music is different too. My neighbour has his blasting all night long. Hes actually not a bad guy. A decent neighbour as well.

              Yum, Indian food. I've had a lot throughout the U.S.A. and never had a bad meal.

              Everything on the menu at Angara in Torrance, CA is SUPERB. Very flavorful, great spices. Yum, lamb...great flavors and falls apart. Rich and savory, but not too rich. Indians make chicken worth eating...not dried out and tastes great.
              http://angaratorrance.com/menu.html

              Indian music sets the authentic atmosphere. I like the instruments and melodies. I don't listen to Indian music other than in their restaurants.

              Indian lamb curry; This curry is spicy + flavorful + tangy. It's Indian comfort food .....not my favorite thing to eat.

                  Thought the majority of India was muslim?

                  I don't consider a neighbor 'blasting' music of any kind all night long as being a decent neighbor.....

                    Awesome food, but it has to come from a good restaurant. Much like it’s hard to find good Mexican food in America or Canada, it’s hard but not impossible to find good Indian food. Their flatbreads, either nan bread or papadums are terrific.
                    Wife and I cook it all the time, it’s great.

                      Tandoori Chicken CHICKEN MARINATED IN COCONUT MILK AND SPICES AND BAKED IN TANDOORI CLAY OVEN


                      ?u=https%3A%2F%2Fd1eha6vqc5cqta.cloudfront.net%2F2014%2F06%2Ftandoori-chicken-2.jpg

                      It's the red looking baked chicken. I love that stuff and the bread.

                      We have Himalayas Indian buffet in Moore. Owned and operated by Indians.

                      There's an Indian restaurant in Edmond that's pretty good. They play those annoying Bollywood videos non stop while you eat.

                      Most of their music is extremely annoying to me.

                        There are good Indian curry recipes and restaurants out there. Trouble is that a lot of them get lazy, and use ready made sauce bases out of a catering can - saves them time and increases the margin. I do like a good Butter Chicken, and Lamb Rogenjosh...some Biryani rice is also nice for a change. When they load in the gunpowder, that's when the trouble starts....pay for it the next morning. :D

                        India is Sikh in the North (think Indian Army from WW2, turban wearing taxi drivers)-24 million, with Hindus making up the rest- 966 million. Obviously muslim in the north as well (Kashmere) as well as towards Bangladesh. They total 200 million. Second highest muslim population in the world. I learned something new today.

                              Food - Very good when you find authentic and not Americanized.

                                India is predominantly Hindu. Islam accounts for around 14% of the Indian population.

                                "good food" and "buffet" should never be used in the same sentence !!
