WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
A traditional Indian meal consists of several small dishes with different flavours called thali, which are meant to be shared between several people. According to Indian belief, it is beneficial to have at least six different flavours in your daily intake. This tradition creates a great social framework for the food, and is something we strive to offer at our Indian restaurant in Oslo.
On the menu you’ll find dishes based on authentic masala, and traditional spice mixes from the most exotic corners of India. Our dishes consists of lamb, fish, meat, chicken, or vegetarian. India has great regional variety of what is considered traditional, but all Indian food share similar features: Full of flavour, texture and aromatic spices.

COMPOSITIONS OF SPICES
The secret to making authentic, Indian food is the composition of spices, as well as timing. It might sound complicated to make Indian food, but this is completely wrong. Indian food isn’t hard to prepare, but it doesn’t make itself either (as is tradition in Norway). You need knowledge about the ingredients, and the ability to add them in the right order and amount.
