The Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan the Magnificent to hold his array of Pez dispensers and collector's cereal boxes when his parents told him it was time to move out of the basement. Get a temple's worth of delicious fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and drink at Aashirwad, located at the intersection of International Drive and State Road 435. Though Aashirwad offers delicious noontime noshes, today's deal is good for dinner only, served from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
With more than 50 saliva-stimulating menu items, Aashirwad treats diners to a diverse range of taste traditions from India's myriad cultures and climates. Dive into deep-fried subcontinental goodness with homemade cheese fritters ($9.95) before locking lips with a veggie-friendly dish of classic chana masala ($10.95), containing garbanzo beans with onions, tomatoes, and spices. The tandoori mixed grill plate ($17.95) provides a skewered sampling of clay-oven-baked treats, while the butter chicken ($13.95) injects a bed of shredded tandoori chicken with decadent butter-tomato gravy, just like the 1970s did to Marlon Brando. Heat-seeking tongue missiles, such as the fiery lamb vindaloo ($14.95), co-exist alongside milder plates, like the creamy chicken shahi korma ($13.95), and guests can sop up stragglers with a flavorful mop of whole-wheat paratha bread ($2.95) before washing them down with a mango lassi ($3.25). Step into the glowing embers of Aashirwad's interiors and enjoy an authentic Indian meal, made by a staff with years of cooking experience in India.
