What to Order at Aashirwad
The tastes of tandoor-cooked delights are something everyone looks forward to when dining at an Indian restaurant. There’s also plenty of curry to go around.
Start the night off right with small plates like gobi chili, chura vada pav, or some ragara patties.
If you love chicken, you can get entrées after appetizers like mughlai chicken korma, chicken kolhapuri, chicken tikka masala, bhuna kadhai chicken, and chicken shagoti.
We tried the chicken tikka masala with mild curry, and it was sensational. Just make sure you have plenty of water on hand as the chicken is far from “mild!”
Looking for those tandoor flavors? Order tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, chicken hara masala, adraki lamb chop, or tandoori salmon.
If you’ve got a vegetarian palate, there’s options for you too! Vegetarianism is very common in Indian culture, so they’re bound to offer delicious dishes that won’t harm your diet - these include dal fry, paneer makhani, eggplant kulambu, and much more.
This restaurant also offers lamb, goat, and seafood. End the night with desserts from lava cake to shahi tres leches. There are endless options to choose from when dining here!
