The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia and forming the massive deliciousness of Indian food. Align your own tectonic face for a mouthwatering rendezvous with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Indian cuisine at Paradise India, located in Overland Park near the intersection of 135th and Metcalf.
The expansive menu at Paradise India is filled with delectable delights from the Northern and Southern Indian Mughlai–style tradition, and all the dishes are freshly cooked and prepared from scratch daily with homemade spices. Round up a group of gastronomic globetrotters and share a traditional order of two vegetable samosas ($3.50), an order of vonda, three deep-fried vegetable balls ($3.50), and one of Paradise's nine naan flatbreads, such as garlic naan ($2.95). Popular dishes include the butter chicken, a Punjab delicacy of marinated white-meat chicken in a butter-tomato sauce ($12.95), the lamb korma (fresh-spiced lamb cooked in a cream curry, $12.95), lamb seekh kebab (egg-marinated minced lamb, $12.95), and chicken malai kebab (juicy chicken marinated in cheese and herbs, $12.95). For a vegetarian twist on tried-and-true curry, the paneer tikka masala, baked cheese in a tomato-cream curry ($10.99), crams elephant-sized flavors into an ordinary-sized dinner. Heat-seeking mouth-missiles can order the Goa coast's specialty: lamb or chicken vindaloo slow-cooked with potatoes in a fiery sauce ($12.95, shrimp vindaloo $13.95). Paradise India prepares much of its regular menu to suit many tastes, including vegan, gluten free, spice free, and dairy free. Stay warm with the chai ($2.95, free refills) or cool your palate with the euphoric flavors of mango kulfi ice cream ($2.95).
