With its rich herbs and mesmerizing spices, Indian cuisine has long been a favorite snack at American ballparks—hence the line "Buy me some keema mutter and beef biryani" in the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." Feast on fan-friendly fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of subcontinental delicacies and drinks at Bukhara Indian Bistro on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only. This Groupon is not valid toward the lunch buffet, and reservations are recommended.

Bukhara Indian Bistro's menu traverses Mother India to bring diners a palanquin's worth of spicy and succulent fare. Begin your plunge into more than 75 dishes with the paneer pakoras ($4.50), which jacket homemade cheese in a deep-fried chickpea batter, before embarking on more extensive eats. Chicken dishes include the murg tikka masala ($13.95) and the boneless murg korma ($13.95), which bathes the chicken in exotic spices, herbs, nuts, and a mild cream sauce, whereas lamb lovers can enjoy a rack of lamb marinated and cooked in a traditional tandoori oven ($20.95). Bukhara takes care of the vegetarians long overlooked by society's fast food restaurants and meat catapults with dishes such as the spinach-sporting saag paneer ($12.95) and baingan bhartha, or baked eggplant ($12.95). In between courses, nosh on naan bread ($2.95), with potato-stuffed ($3.50) and garlic-packed ($3.95) variations available.

As you sip on a mango lassi yogurt shake ($3.25) or a masala tea ($2.50), let Bukhara Indian Bistro's interiors—with its evocative paintings and marigold walls—whisk you away to the world seen only in Salman Rushdie pop-up books and Rudyard Kipling graphic novels. Bukhara Indian Bistro is open until 11 p.m. seven nights a week, allowing for a late-evening dinner after a long day spent toiling in the dream-mines.
