Indian cuisine is going to provoke the American taste buds even more with its wide array of flavors as Jhalman Singh and his wife, Amarjit Kaur open a Taj India restaurant in the Holland Township in West Michigan. Kaur dishes out more than 60 Indian dishes, which she has created on her own and now she cooks them with the help of only five kitchen staff.
I would love to list down the delectable Indian food that she serves at a $6.95 lunch buffet¸ $7.95 to $14.95 dinner, appetizers, appetizers, South Indian foods and barbecued foods. The foods that she offers include Chicken and fish curry; grilled chicken in yogurt, herbs and spicy gravy; shrimp dishes; Indian Kheer (rice pudding); carrot pudding; Grilled lamb; India Puff called as samosa; deep-fried lentil pancake and grilled Shrimps. The food served is really affordable and caters to the rising flavor trend of the Americans. As per Kaur the Americans come here to eat the fresh, flavorful and spicy food. She says:
You get spices in the food that (Americans) don’t usually eat. The spices dance on your tongue and make you feel good. Foods are cooked at very high temperatures, which seals in flavors and enhance the spices.
This just proves that ethnic cuisine appeals to the American cuisine as Indian Cuisine itself is prepared on the basis of strict culinary discipline, offering a new variety every time for the permutation and combinations of ingredients prepared in an ethnic way. To sum up in the words of Park Township resident Dale Roberts:
When I came to Holland 20 years ago, the only ethnic food you could get was at Don Miguel’s by the Civic Center. Today, you can get Tai, Japanese, Chinese and now Indian in the area. I enjoy having a lot of choices when I go out to eat.
