Hello everyone!

I have been invited out for indian food for a birthday and I have no idea what to gravitate toward, there is no menu online!

Any dishes you know are IP friendly?

It is my understanding that Tandoor chicken, while grilled, has been marinated in yogurt. So not ideal. You could see if they have Kadai Chicken which is spiced, but not marinated in yogurt. I have generally found that indian restaurants are not easy but the people are easy going and can try to make it work. It's a challenge though. Any chance you can swing by their restaurant and check out the menu?

Maybe you can call ahead and ask about menu options.

Ok I make indian/Pakistani food every day. Stay away from Masalas, curries, kharis, pilau and biryani. They contain rice, fried onions, yogurt and tomatoes.

You safest bet is chicken tikka- simple dry spice rub and grilled. you can eat goat or lamb kabobs. You can do lamb kebabs- but ask is they have onions in them ;) but do not eat shami kabobs!

And of course avoid- naans, roti, rhita (yogurt with chilies, onions, cucumbers ect)

My favorite Indian food dish is Palak Paneer, because it is mostly spinach..but they do put cheese in it, so this could be a problem. You may be able to ask for it without the cheese though, although it may not taste as good.

Paneer means cheese. It is super easy to make, I love paneer with just about anything in it. YUMMYYY!! But not IP friendly :(
Just like the word Chi mean tea in 30+ languages, so I laugh when someone says they are having a Chi Tea Latte

Not IP advice but go to Narayanni's!!

And I did fill up on Chicken tikka there and all the veggies that didn't have sauces.
