The heart of any Indian kitchen?the clay oven?is the main cooking source at Delhi Chaat. The oven (also known as a tandoor) reaches temperatures of 800-degrees, allowing it to quickly and perfectly cook morsels of chicken, lamb, and shrimp that have been marinated in yogurt, ginger, garlic, and exotic spices. The result: sizzling entrees packed full of flavor. The oven also produces freshly-baked naan, roti, and other breads (more than 15 varieties, in fact), perfect for scooping up mouthfuls of curry or fanning the face of a spicy food-loving dining companion. When they aren't manning the oven, chefs stay busy simmering lentils and vegetables in creamy tomato sauce and cashew paste, or by concocting the restaurant's sweet desserts, including pastry balls drizzled in syrup and rice pudding peppered with raisins.

The aromas of North Indian cuisine draw passersby into Jewel of India’s brick-lined doorway, leading them toward tables topped with saffron-colored linens. Here, they can dive into more than 100 traditional Indian dishes, including crispy pakoras, spicy vindaloos, and seafood baked in a tandoor clay oven. Like the forecasts of an easily bribable weatherman, entrees can be ordered with one of five heat levels: mild, medium, spicy, X, or hot. Raisins stud many dishes, adding bursts of juicy sweetness to lamb makhani and vegetable biryani. Brimming with chicken tikka, boti kebabs, sautéed peppers, and fresh-baked naan, the Jewel of India specials can feed an entire family in the dining room or fuel an off-site party thanks to the restaurant’s catering service.
