Though India and Indiana are roughly the same word, their cuisine offerings are worlds apart. Find out the difference two letters make with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of Indian cuisine from Bhojan on Lexington Avenue.
Bhojan boasts a celebrated kosher menu of fresh vegetarian and vegan fare drawn from the rich culinary traditions of Gujarat and Punjab in Northwest India. Start off with street-food staples, such as samosas ($5) and bhel puri, a puffed-rice treat enriched with coriander chutney ($6), and a cup of masala chai ($2). Lighter appetites can be easily quelled with small-plate offerings such as the lilva kachori, spiced pastries filled with pigeon peas, cashews, and raisins ($6), or pau bhaji, a spiced vegetable mash served with pau bread ($7), and entrees such as vegan aloo jeera, sautéed potatoes with cumin and coriander ($10), fill empty food reservoirs. Ravenous high-sun diners can take advantage of Bhojan's lunch thalis, traditional meal platters that serve a full spread—a starter, greens, three entrees, lentils, basmati rice, two chapattis, raita/chutney, and dessert ($8).
- …superb Gujarati, Punjabi, and ashram cuisine that sings with complex, vibrant flavors. As a bonus, the sweets shop at the front of the restaurant sells excellent homemade mithai (Indian confections) like pedas and burfi. – Rebecca Marx, Village Voice
- Decor is very creative and created a relaxing ambiance. – Jimmy G., Yelp, 12/11/10
