A few reasons behind us choosing our star ingredient, quinoa:

  • a fantastic natural source of (vegan & vegetarian!) protein (twice that of rice!)

  • one of the few plants that contains all nine essential amino acids

  • a terrific source of magnesium, manganese, potassium, zinc, copper, folate, iron, & phosphorus

  • has more fiber than most grains

  • is over 10% of the RDA for vitamins B1, B2 & B6

  • is naturally gluten free

  • a low glycemic index food; great for blood sugar control

We cook our quinoa with turmeric for a warm flavor that is brimming with incredible health benefits. Turmeric is beloved not only for its richness and depth it naturally adds to our food, but also for its:

  • ability to improve brain function and lower risk of brain diseases

  • anti-inflammatory properties

  • antioxidant-rich effects

  • bioactive, medicinal compounds including Circumin

  • heart-healthy attributes

We are so grateful to our friends Larissa & Glenn Evans for capturing our Tandoori Quinoa Salad so beautifully!

Everyone's Two Favorites

Chicken Tikka or Chicken Tikka Masala... what is your favorite? While oftentimes, these two notable dishes are confused with one another, they are actually quite different in flavor...

Chicken Tikka

One of our most popular dishes at All India Cafe: Chicken Tikka! We marinate boneless pieces of chicken in our homemade sauce with cilantro, ginger, garlic, & spices... it's even gluten-free! "Tikka" actually translates to "bits" or "pieces" and is a classic of Punjabi cuisine. Beloved for its exquisite flavor and for its overall lightness as a dish, Chicken Tikka is a go-to for many purists.

Chicken Tikka Masala

The ultimate comfort food... this dish is probably our most popular across all of our locations. Our Tandoori cooked chicken is served in a cream sauce, freshly made of an infusion of onions, ginger, & fenugreek leaves. Our Chicken Tikka Masala is warm, and rich in flavor and textures, all without being too heavy... a gluten-free delight!

For The Lassi Lover

easymangolassi.jpg

While many think of mango as the flavor of all lassis, there are actually other varieties that are very popular in their own right. At All India Cafe in Pasadena and Glendale, we serve mango lassi, sweet lassi, and masala lassi. Here's a breakdown...

Our sweet lassis infuse homemade yogurt with rosewater, but other varieties can include fruit juices like strawberry or lemon instead of rosewater. Saffron lassis are another sweet option -- these are incredibly popular in Rajasthan and Gujarat in India. Then, of course, there is the mango lassi, which is made with mango pulp. Some mango lassis have added sugar, but at All India Cafe, we prefer to serve a healthy, natural variety and keep our offerings free of unnecessary sugar by using fresh mangoes that are sweet enough on their own.

The masala lassi is mildly spiced, and is an example of traditional lassis that are mild and/or salty. These are also made with our housemade yogurt. Traditionally, lassis are a savory drink -- a simple and refreshing blend of yogurt, water, and spices, which can include cumin.

Lassis have always been most popular eaten with lunch, but can truly be part of any meal. The yogurt is an excellent source of probiotics and healthy bacteria for your gut, which can alleviate many stomach issues. Adding turmeric to one's lassi is an ancient folk remedy for gastroenteritis (also known as the stomach flu). Turmeric combats inflammation, so this remedy is certainly one that can be relied on!
