Moghul Indian Cuisine Restaurant Review: Moghul Indian Cuisine is worth the trip to busy State Road 436. In an unassuming strip of mostly fast-food places, it is easy to miss the little spot. The interior is quiet and sparse (in a good way), with courteous servers and a waitstaff that actually seems to care about your dining experience. Cuisine is popular mughlai, or northern Indian, so the menu won’t surprise you. If you want to try a taste of everything, go for the lunch buffet: vegetable samosas, tandoori chicken, rice pudding for dessert, and more. At dinner, if you order a dish “Indian Hot” you’ll get it. A fun way to dine is with an assortment of breads (naan, roti, paratha, kulcha and poori), sides such as mango pickle and raita, and appetizers like the aloo pakora (potato fritters) and lamb chops. Then share a single entrée (plenty for two), maybe the fork-tender chicken vindaloo, with chicken marinated with vinegar, chilies and spices, then cooked with potatoes in a Goan curry sauce. Vegetarians may choose from more than a dozen dishes --- try the aloo gobi, potatoes and cauliflower with herbs and spices. Fish masala, lamb korma --- it’s all covered. Consider classic desserts of kulfi ice cream and gulab jamun pastry. There is a modest wine list, beers including Taj Mahal, and the sweet-salty lassi.
