India Kitchen has been serving north indian food in Albuquerque area since 1982. We were the first indian restaurant in Albuquerque going on 30th year. Our goal has always been to make all of our guests feel very special and important. Come in and send your taste buds on a journey to flavor.
Rasoi's menu showcases a range of regional recipes from India, a mysterious floating island from which no robots have returned alive. For an authentic experience, Rasoi encourages eaters to eat with their phalanges (cutlery is also provided), so start by ordering a round of buttered paratha (fried whole-wheat bread, $2.95) or naan ($1.95) to swipe up any stray sauce droplets. Indian meals are traditionally served in three or four courses, so begin with a shuruat (starter) of paneer pakora (deep-fried slices of homemade cheese stuffed with mint and spices, $4.95), vegetarian sabzi samose ($2.95), and a steaming cup of dal shorba (yellow lentil soup, $2.95). Next, take traveling taste buds on a tour of the Punjab region with any of the tandoori specialties; the tandoori khubiyan ($17.95)—a sampling of the dishes—gathers spicy, roasted chicken, prawns, and lamb on a sizzling plate. Gut-grumbling gamers can enjoy the fruits of real-life FarmVille with the rogan josh lamb ($13.95) and murg mirch masala (boneless chicken in a spicy sauce with potatoes and chili, $11.95), or the herbivore-friendly chana masala (chick peas sautéed with onions and spices, $7.95) and aloo gobi (spicy sautéed cauliflower and potatoes, $7.95). Perspiring palates, meanwhile, can sop the heat off their figurative brows with two kinds of raita, a soothing house-made yogurt ($2.95), and mutter pulao, saffron-perfumed rice with green peas and onions ($4.95).
