Well, normally my answer to that question is “no”. I’m not a fan of buffets in general. However, I sometimes make an exception for…1. a nice brunch buffet, or 2. the yummiest Indian buffet. Today after church, we headed to this great restaurant, called TAJ. I love the warm, spicy aroma that greets you as soon as you walk in the door. And the cool thing about an Indian buffet is getting to sample a little bit of all the delicious options.
First, a salad with a cucumber yogurt dressing and some delicious! onion chutney…
Then, a delicious plate of butter chicken – a fragrant, spicy curried chicken dish….one piece of vegetable pakora – a yummy crunchy spinach, onion, and cauliflower appetizer that is breaded in chickpea flour and fried….Alu saag – spicy spinach and potatoes…and matar paneer – an Indian curry with green peas and paneer (and Indian cheese that tastes a little like tofu to me).
And finally, another favorite – mango ice cream with slivered almonds.
One key with buffets is to really listen to your body’s fullness signals. It is fine to sample a bit of all the foods you love, but try to stop when you are “comfortably satisfied”, not really full. I totally enjoyed my lunch. And now, I’m heading out to enjoy this beautiful sunny day! See you later!
