LYD suggests: Masala Dosa for an appetizer. It's a paper-thin crepe stuffed with potato, onion, and cashew nuts. This is served with sambar and coconut chutney, two amazing dipping sauces that really bring out the bold flavors of the dish. Also, try the sweet and crispy Fried bananas. They appear to have been dipped in sugar and fried, totally delicious.

This specialty item is a mammoth-sized, super thin, crepe-like roll of unleavened bread stuffed with diced potatoes, onions, spices, and chopped nuts. Along with the starter dish are two of their specialty sauces, sambar and coconut chutney. Sambar is a warm tamarind-based sauce that is comprised of a myriad of roasted mixed veggies like eggplant, onion, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, and radishes and then spiced with invigorating coriander and chilies. Coconut chutney is a coconut paste side dish with a hint of ginger, green chile pepper, coriander leaves, and loads of awakening spices. These sauces will definitely get your mouth feeling the heat!

And if you want to stray way from the typical Indian norm, try the spicy Lamb Rogan Josh. The lamb is cooked until tender in a tomato cream sauce with garlic cloves, ginger, cumin, fennel, and red chili.
