Sometimes it is nice to admit that you need help with exotic dishes. I came across this beautifully packaged spice mix that begged me to cook Tandoori using this easy to prep Indian Yogurt sauce mix in a one pot prep. I could not resist. I remember ordering this dish from restaurants in Nairobi over ten years ago, so I went for it. Before you prep make sure you have the Tandoori spice mix handy. The recipe comes on the box.
To celebrate a friend’s college graduation we decided to go to Gopuram, considered the best of Indian Cuisine. We wanted to accommodate everyone’s taste buds and we were not disappointed.
The food is served buffet style. There is a variety of sensational delights such as rice, (white or yellow), chicken, (chicken tandoori, or chicken tikka masala), spinach, naan (bread, which was served warm at our table) and much much more.
For a drink we ordered the unforgettable mango lassi. A delicious blend of mango puree and yogurt, which you must try. I loved it so much that I bought the ingredients and now can make a similar version for afternoon treats.
I like it here because the wait staff don’t spend every minute of their time asking if every thing is going okay. You get to eat with no disturbances and you can visit the buffet as many times as you like. We were there for about 3 hours and everything went great!
I also like to go there to get in touch with my Kenyan heritage. Our food has become a blend of Arabic, Swahili and native food. Gopuram’s tasty array of foods brings the spices, scents, colors and delicacies close to home. Go celebrate ethnicity and diversity. Eat something different, you will not regret it! $10.95 for buffet and $3.00 for the mango lassi on the weekends. Is that a scrumplicious deal or what?
