As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Indian cuisine and drinks from Rasoi – An Indian Kitchen, conveniently located near the University of New Mexico campus on Yale Boulevard.
Rasoi's menu showcases a range of regional Indian recipes parked upon tables by a friendly, attentive staff. Rasoi fosters an authentic dining experience by encouraging diners to eat with their hands (cutlery is also provided), allowing guests to guiltlessly swipe up stray sauce droplets with a round of buttered paratha (fried whole-wheat bread, $3.25) or brandish naan in front of a surly book of etiquette ($2.15). Or feel free to partake in a traditional three- or four-course jaw jaunt with a shuruat (starter) of paneer pakora, deep-fried slices of homemade cheese stuffed with mint and spices ($5.45), vegetarian sabzi samose ($3.25), and a steaming cup of dal shorba (yellow lentil soup, $3.25). Spiced-up palates with faulty internal sprinklers can cool down with raita, such as the soothing house-made yogurt ($3.25), or mutter pulao, saffron-perfumed rice with green peas and onions ($5.45), or watch videos of polar bears chewing ice cubes.
After the first-class flavor cruise has docked and disembarked, swab mouth-decks with a mango lassi ($3.25), an imported Indian Thums Up cola ($2.15), or a peppery masala chai ($3.25). Rasoi's bright, bold décor and delightful dining room's lingering aromas augment the house-made pistachio ice cream ($4.35) and mango custard ($4.35).
