Madras Mahal

Kosher preparation meets vegetarian Indian cooking

When Madras Mahal originally opened in 1985, its chefs solely focused on recreating classic dishes from southern India. This changed 15 years ago when the restaurant decided to broaden its focus by not only incorporating vegetarian and vegan-friendly cuisine from other regions, but also by becoming a certified kosher eatery. Today, its chefs stuff chickpeas, cauliflower, lentils, and other veggie staples into enormous crêpe-like dosas or stir them into simmering curries and sauces.

Menu at a Glance


  • Masala Dosa: filled with lightly spiced onions and potatoes
  • Paneer Dosa: spicy crêpe filled with shredded homemade cheese

Vegan Curries

  • Vegetable Vindaloo: ginger, garlic, and assorted vegetables in a spicy sauce
  • Tofu Gobi Mutter: tofu, cauliflower, and green peas cooked in the chefs' special sauce

Other Southern Indian Classics

  • Medu Vada: fried lentil-flour donuts
  • Bagare Aloo Beingan: potato and eggplant cooked in a tamarind sauce with peanuts and coconut

From the Press Room

  • New York magazine: "Vegetarian and kosher need not mean restrictive. South Indian food is actually kind of fun, since some of the food, which you eat with your fingers, balloons when cooked into unusual shapes."
  • Time Out New York: "Be prepared to share the dosa: The crisp, tissue-thin crêpe, rolled into a three-foot cone, takes up more room than your tiny table allows."
