At Currylicious, cooks sling out hard-to-find, authentic Indian dishes, with a survey of vegetarian eats available. A house salad for two intermixes green leaves, cucumber, and tomato with ginger dressing to imbue bodies with enough energy to swim laps in a pool filled with molasses. Appetizers include hearty veggie samosas and the kachumar salad, an intermingling of fresh garden veggies, herbs, and lime juice. For the entree, the madras chicken hosts a soiree of black-mustard seeds and coconut milk, which dance across tongue floors with grated coconut. The goan fish’s ginger and garlic edifies palates, and the vegetarian paneer karahi introduces green peas to hunks of paneer cheese. During pleasant weather, eaters can sit outside, where they take in Oakland’s scenic landscape or season their meals with crushed sunshine.
