Chefs' ovens burn much hotter than conventional ovens, allowing them to quickly roast meats and melt glacier chunks into gourmet ice water. Enjoy professional cooking with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian fare at India Express.
The flavorsmiths at India Express combine hearty proteins, fresh vegetables, and the subcontinent's fragrant spices to create a menu of authentic northern Indian dishes. After marinating boneless chicken pieces in yogurt and spices, the cooks skewer them like wild lollipops and roast the tender morsels in a clay tandoor to create the chicken tikka ($12.99). Platefuls of lamb vindaloo arrive with toothsome potatoes and a tangy sauce that offers all the hotness of a chili dipped in magma ($12.99); to cool their mouths, customers can throw back some mango lassi ($2.99) or milk ($2). The kitchen staff heaps flavor-laden fish and shrimp atop atolls of rice while designing the various seafood curries ($12.99+), and the paneer karahi forgoes meats entirely, sautéing homemade cheese alongside fresh tomatoes, ginger, and garlic instead ($10.99).
The chefs at India Express have a few tricks up their sleeves. For starters, they often put their ingredients through more than one preparation method, yielding juicy and flavorful results. When it comes to chicken and duck, they often first get a dip in yogurt and spices before acquiring a delectable sear inside the restaurant’s blazing clay tandoor oven. For many recipes, lamb and shrimp complete the cooking process in a curry sauce or tomato cream sauce. It’s this care for the details—along with fluffy naan with a variety of stuffings—that make India Express’s food memorable. For convenience, the Indian restaurant also delivers to a number of Denver areas and its online ordering system is a swift alternative for people who have trouble dialing out on their hamburger phones.
