Sticking to a ketchup-packet diet is even more impressive considering how delicious Indian food is and how easy it is for a samosa to crawl into your mouth while you’re asleep. Give in to the persuasive powers of Indian cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fare and drinks at Indian Chillies in Pembroke Pines.
Indian Chillies' authentic menu is replete with rich, spice-filled Indian flavors, fresh vegetables, and Halal meats. Hush grumbling tummies with tender kebabs ($9.99), or cure pastry deprivation with a homemade vegetable samosa ($3.99). Diners can celebrate India’s vegetarian tradition with vegetable biryani ($9.99), a rice-based dish infused with spiced vegetables, or indulge in a smooth and rich chicken tikka masala ($9.99). For dessert, try a jalebi ($6.99), a sugary deep-fried treat akin to funnel cakes–as opposed to tunnel cakes, which are filled with industrial-grade drill bits, or cool down with a refreshing mango lassi ($3.49).
The servers at Indian Chillies helpfully walk first-timers through the extensive menu. Their suggestions cover a range of timeless and modern dishes, from the tandoori chicken—praised by the Sun Sentinel for its "scrumptious charred exterior"—to Indo-Chinese chow mein. Though the kitchen staff labors over several zesty entrees, they specialize in smaller plates, such as samosas, halal chicken wings, and various flatbreads.
Vegan, vegetarian, and meaty plates satisfy diners of all persuasions, whether they're perusing the menu or loading the buffet onto the back of their truck. As their ears bask in Bollywood tunes, guests can finish up by sipping a mango lassi or savoring gulab jamun, a lightly syruped dessert of milk-and-cottage-cheese balls.
