Save taste buds from seasonal sugar shock—and the terrifying visions of sugarplum fairies that come with it—with today’s game-changing Groupon. For $20, you’ll get $50 worth of Indian fare at Anarkali Indian Restaurant, an authentic eatery specializing in Bengal and Northern India-based dishes. You can use your Groupon for lunch or dinner, dine-in or carry-out.
Start with samosas($2.95), a duo of flour-based patties filled with meat or vegetables. For a lighter option, try the anarkali salad ($5.95), mixed greens tossed with mushrooms, paneer, cilantro, flour crisps, rice puffs, and tamarind dressing. Dinner entrees all come with soup, rice, and hot tea or coffee. Entrees can be ordered mild, medium, hot, very hot, or a level of hotness beyond words that can only be expressed with a cartoon of the sun eating a coyote. Try coconut curry-soaked chicken ($11.95–$20.95), or shrimp tikka ($15.95–$22.95), served with tomatoes and sautéed in masala gravy.
After weeks of marathon bundt-cake-baking sessions and constant candy cane consumption, this deal will offer a spicy, savory surprise for your mouth. And if all the Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas goose, New Year's ham, and Grinch Day roast beast caused you to faint from meat exhaustion, Anarkali's extensive vegetarian options will help you detox, so you don't die of overmeating.

Tough Call: Dine in or Eat out
Today's Groupon presents you with a tough choice: Should you eat out or should you dine in? Here's a guide to common eating-decision situations:
Your Kitchen Is on Fire
Dine in or Eat out: Dine in. The money you save on heating bills and liquid smoke will more than make up for the dangerous levels of heat and smoke.
Your Kitchen is on Fire and Filled to the Ceiling with Snakes
Dine in or Eat out: Tough call. Are the snakes smiling? If so, the snakes are likely acting as one organism with a hive mind and running for City Council. This is a friendly visit. You may not be a member of the Snake Conquerization Party, but be polite and make them some soup.
Your Roommate Is Home, but He Appears to be a Bunch of Snakes Bundled in Human Clothes
Dine in or Eat out: Eat out! Treat your roomie to a nice dinner to reward him for his cool new look.
