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!

Eurydice Live at Glendale Community College

320b9-636570769040766819.jpg

In this modernized re-telling of the myth of Eurydice and Orpheus, nothing is as it seems:  stones can talk, rooms are made out of string, and the devil rides a tricycle. The story begins when the fairytale romance between Eurydice and Orpheus abruptly ends -- on their wedding day – as Eurydice falls to her death. On her way to the underworld, Eurydice’s memories are erased; when she is reunited with her deceased father, she believes he is the porter. As Eurydice’s father slowly and secretively helps her remember her past, Orpheus grieves and plots a way to bring his wife back. In playwright, Sarah Ruhl’s topsy-turvy Overworld/Underworld setting, anything can and does happen.

Samosas: The Snack of India

IMG_6912_preview.jpg

Undoubtedly one of our most popular and frequently-ordered appetizers, samosas are a delight to the senses. 

Historically a vegetarian dish, samosas can be filled with savory and spicy additions like lentils, peas, noodles, onions, potatoes, minced lamb, and beef. Also popular in a myriad of Asian countries and the Mediterranean, and Africa, the actual name for these turnovers varies by region, but all of the names refer to this same, dumpling-like snack that we call a samosa.

At All India Cafe, we make vegetarian samosas, stuffed with potatoes, peas, spices, herbs, and serve with a tamarind chutney for a flavor juxtaposition that is sure to thrill your palate. 

Our Samosas are also available as a vegan appetizer if you'd like -- just ask!

Have you tried our samosas? Use code SAMOSA at checkout for your next online All India Cafe order and you'll receive a free order.

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!
