Naan is a handy tool for eating, scooping up savory dal, tender vegetables, or the meal's bill. Enjoy naan's generosity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian fare at Uru-Swati.

Hailed as one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the Best of Chicago 2008 by the Chicago Reader, Uru-Swati arrays an eclectic menu of South Indian fare. Layered parathas ($5.95+) reveal treasures such as onion or alu (potato) packed into folded flatbreads, best guarded with the ferocious crunch of pappadams ($1.95). Served with basmati rice, raita, and a pickle, meals surge forth to satisfy appetites in the form of navratan korma ($8.45), which floats hearty vegetables in a creamy curry, or the bhindi masala ($8.95), a spicy mélange of okra, onions, and tomatoes. Portions of garlic naan ($2.95) and onion kulcha ($2.95) help to lap up flavors, whereas a BYOB policy allows for generous clinking or bringing your own boat to haul leftovers home.


Voted Best of Chicago 2008 by the Chicago Reader and lauded by Time Out Chicago, Uru-Swati earns praise for the carefully crafted vegetarian Indian fare served at its Devon Avenue storefront. Blue walls and painted cityscapes look down on dishes brimming with rich sauces, while nearby clocks slink down from walls to steal bites when patrons look away. South Indian cuisine in the form of masala dosa and uttapam meets classic dishes such as chana masala and dal makhani, and garlic naan and desserts round out an extensive menu.
