is unlike anything you've had at an Indian restaurant. Sure, its basic flavors are firmly rooted in the subcontinent: cardamom, curry, nutty ghee
. But it begins with an explosion of ginger, lime and cilantro that wouldn't seem out of place in a Southeast Asian or Latin American dish. Actually, there's a good reason you won't find nihari
in most Indian restaurants: The dish is most commonly associated with Pakistan. The Khan family, who own and operate Indian Food, originally hail from Karachi, Pakistan, and they offer a unique take on a cuisine that, despite the restaurant's name, spans countries and thousands of years. Besides nihari
, you'll find flavorful versions of such classic Indian dishes as korma and biryani. Whatever you order, enjoy it with chapati, a delicious bread lighter and more flavorful than traditional Indian naan.
