In a hurry for curry?
Flavour of North India is located on bustling Coogee Bay Road, just down from Maloney's Grocer. People flock here for hearty, home-style Indian cooking; they also come because it's quick and cheap. Highly recommended are the Veggie or Tandoori Naan wraps. You choose your salads and the curry, then decide if you want it wrapped up in a garlic or a plain Naan bread. This will really fill you up; and all for just $7.90. Wash it down with one of their refreshing lassi drinks; it's a traditional sweet yoghurt drink that comes in various flavours (rose, mango, coconut or plain).
You simply can't come to Flavour of North India and not try the Naan bread. It truly is the best Naan in town and it comes in plain, garlic or cheesy. Yum.
When it comes to the curries, be sure to read the signs, rather than simply point at whatever looks appetising. The signs tell you more than just what's in it; they tell you how hot it is. Some people do like it hot, but if you prefer something milder, keep an eye out. The veggie curry is a good option for vegetarians, but if you are looking for more protein then try the vegetarian Dahl, it's made with lentils. Most of the food at Flavour of North India is pretty nutritious, so health freaks can keep calm. Meat lovers are sure to enjoy the lamb curry with rice. Oh, and don't forget the fried goodies; the samosas and onion bhajees are to die for.
