Melting Meatballs

Moghul Palace India Cuisine on UrbanspoonI didn’t grow up eating Indian food, but I’ve definitely learned to love it. Boyfriend and I tried a new (to us) Indian buffet for lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The buffet at Moghul Palace is small, with a mix of vegetarian and meaty entrée items. One of my favorite things on the buffet was their Chicken Tikka Masala. The dish is buttery with a creamy tomato sauce that has a lot of ginger and garlic in it. The chicken was succulent and the sauce was excellent on the chicken, the naan, my rice…you get the picture.  As good as the Chicken Tikka Masala was, their lamb curry was better. I loved their lamb meatballs. The meatballs were so tender that they melted in my mouth and the sauce was dreamy and delectable; I ended up dredging everything through the sauce.  Although small, the buffet offered all of my favorites; rice, naan, vegetable pakoras, Tandori chicken, curries, and rice pudding. The service was attentive, and the prices reasonable. This is a restaurant that I’m likely to go back to for dinner! According to my north-Indian coworker, the restaurant offers Mughlai cuisine, food known for its richness and for using spices, dried fruit, and nuts. Mughlai food incorporates cooking styles and flavors used in northern India, Bangladesh, and the Persian areas of Iran.
