Aloo Chaat: Aloo chaat is an Indian dish made with chickpeas & potatoes.  Aloo : Potatoes     Chaat:  (Hindi: literally meaning “to lick” or “taste”) is a word used across India to refer to small plates of savory snacks, typically served at the side of the road from stalls or carts.  Most chaats originated in North India or Gujarat, but they are now eaten across the country and have made their appearance in the West.

Dal is a preparation of dried beans and it also refers to the thick, spicy stew prepared there from. It is regularly eaten with rice and vegetables in Southern India, and with both rice and roti throughout Northern India.  Dal is a mainstay in Indian vegetarian cooking, since it provides the requisite proteins required for a balanced diet.

Dhania Chicken  (cilantro chicken) This is a favorite among the Ismaili Muslims of Kenya, as well as, of course, in India, and with good reason. It has an exquisite flavor, served with Indian breads.

Kulfi is a flavored frozen dessert made with milk. It is a kind of ice cream that comes in various flavors, however, ours is the traditional, delicious kulfi flavored only with Rose Water.  Unlike western ice creams, kulfi is not whipped; it is a solid, dense frozen dessert. Therefore, kulfi is a different kind of an ice cream.
