India House Restaurant Review

: India House can’t match the worldly kitchens of Boston or Montreal --- but it’s the best spot in town for plating comfort food from the Far East. Like sweet, simmering coconut soup, sprinkled with crushed pistachios or the fist-size vegetable samosas, with spicy mint and tamarind sauce. These piping hot fried turnovers are stuffed with savory potato and peas. Indian food is truly a cuisine best shared. From fragrant rogan josh, rich with paprika and clarified butter, to decadent saag paneer, brimming with firm cubes of cheese in spicy, creamed spinach, no two tastes are the same. Boti kabab masala comes recommended and doesn’t disappoint. Its bewitching, squash-like sauce softens the gaminess of tandoori lamb. Bored with flatbreads? Trade naan for whole-wheat poori. Coupling curries with freshly baked breads completes the experience, and this airy dough is a sensation. Also worth tasting is India’s flagship Sauvignon Blanc, Sula. Available by the glass, the dry, floral white defuses fiery dishes better than the ubiquitous Kingfisher lager. Service and privacy suffer once the crowd floods in, so make early reservations, or plan to stay late.
