Life is full of stick-based delights, such as the branches of the world tree, the golden javelins that pin down every rainbow, and the toothpicks that hold together the U.S. Constitution. Enjoy a modern food on a stick with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian and Nepalese cuisine at Ghar-E-Kabab in Silver Spring.
Ghar-E-Kabab is devoted to crafting classic Indian and Nepalese cuisine made with fresh, natural ingredients and prepared using healthy cooking techniques. Saunter into this villa of victuals and peruse the menu of vegetable, chicken, shrimp, and lamb dishes, many cooked in the hot depths of a traditional Tandoor oven. Vegetarians will appreciate the vegetable dishes, such as saag paneer ($11.99), spinach and fresh curd cheese cooked with cream in a medium sauce, or the rotating fresh veggie of the day ($12.99), cooked in curry. Skip ahead to an entree of chicken tikka masala ($13.99), chunks of chicken barbecued in a clay oven and bathed in curry sauce, which pairs admirably with the freshly baked naan ($2.50, stuffed naan $3.70), a flatbread ideal for sopping up excess sauce or wrapping around the shoulders of a chilled tablemate. Tandoori lamb chops ($19.99) are marinated overnight in ginger and crushed spices before being skewered and Tandoori-grilled, while vegetable biryani ($12.99)— cooked with saffron basmati rice with mild spices, nuts, and raisins—provides a meat-free counterpoint in the edible food fugue.
The simple décor of white walls subtly punctuated by bright pops of color from turquoise napkins and red chairs echoes Ghar-E-Kabab's straightforward, fresh, and hearty menu. The co-owners started the restaurant to live out their dream of serving customers delicious eats a mother from New Delhi or Katmandu would cook for a family of dewy-eyed, hopeful children. Their desire for fresh, organic produce and meat drained of fat via traditional cooking methods culminated in the creation of this house of kabobs. After saturating your palate with their wide variety of traditional spices, cleanse it with a dessert of kulfi ($5.95), a milk-based homemade Indian ice cream, and contemplate the value of fresh, healthy life experiences, such as long walks, air-canoe trips, and playing double-dutch with a cadre of enthusiastic grandmas.

The scents of saffron, cinnamon, and coriander lure diners into Shangri-La, where cooks fashion south-Asian fare from housemade yogurt and organic, locally grown produce. Inside a tandoori clay oven, red-hot coals seal in the flavors of traditional naan bread, jumbo shrimp, tender lamb chops, and marinated chicken breasts while sloughing off fat and cholesterol. The kitchen also specializes in Nepalese dishes such as cho-e-la, a boneless duck hugged with herbs and kissed by the tandoori oven’s flames. Handcrafted desserts such as ice cream and rice pudding pair sweetness with smoothness, like a jazz record manufactured from hard candy.
