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 $7, you get $15 worth of authentic Indian fare and drinks at Rice N Roti in Plano.
Rice N Roti specializes in northern and southern Indian cuisine, but also features a smaller selection of Indo-Chinese items. Take a subcontinental jaunt through the menu, which presents an expansive assortment of vegetarian treats, such as vegetable samosas ($0.99 each), spring rolls ($1.29 each), and aloo palak, potatoes cooked with spinach, tomatoes, chilis, and spices ($6.49). Meaty options include chicken tikka masala ($7.99), lamb curry (8.49), and shrimp saag cooked with spinach sauce ($8.99), which can be paired with several varieties of crispy dosa ($4.49–$6.49) or naan ($1.49–$1.99) to sop up savory sauces before your date tries to lick your plate. Indian chinese fried rice—basmati rice stir fried with zeera, green onion, peas, and carrots and served with Raita ($6.99 for vegetable; $7.99 for chicken)—exemplify Rice N Roti's geography-straddling savories, and spice-splattered tongues can be soothed with sips of mango lassi ($2.99) or a dessert bowl of creamy kheer ($1.99).
Rice N Roti
Rice N Roti's name implies a pan-regional approach to South Asian cuisine; an approach that is upheld by a menu of northern and southern Indian staples and a selection of Indo-Chinese dishes. In addition to baking fresh naan in the kitchen's clay tandoor oven, the chefs slow-cook tender morsels of lamb, chicken, and vegetables in flavorful sauces with nuts, garlic, and yogurt, or vinegar and red chilies. Crepe-like dosas with savory fillings of onion or chicken represent culinary traditions from the southern regions, and orders of meaty fried rice help to bridge the gap between Chinese and Indian cuisine.
