|At the Taj Grill, Jean and I were able to make our selections of food at the luncheon buffet. I enjoyed arranging the food on my plate, and, of course, I also enjoyed eating the food! Since I am a newbie at eating Indian food, I had to write down the names of everything that I chose so that I would remember what they were. I had chicken tandoori, chicken meatball xacutti (spicy chicken curry), chana bhatura (garbanzo beans in an onion and tomato curry sauce), fresh cut beans with potatoes, idli (a savory South Indian cake), and basmati rice. According to the menu, the chicken tandoori is “marinated in yogurt and fresh ground herbs and spices and baked in a clay oven.” The menu also describes the oven: “Tandoor is a traditional Indian clay oven fired by charcoal in which food is baked.” I also had a piece of naan, which is an Indian flat bread. That bread is also baked in a tandoor clay oven.
Yummy. It was an interesting, and delicious, combination of foods, with varying textures and flavors.
