Indian food for beginners-what to order?

Sara | Aug 5, 2001 07:13 PM

On a recent trip to England I visited an Indian food restaurant, and loved it. I had only had Indian food once before but ordered the wrong things and didn't like it. In England we had quite a few wonderful dishes, including chicken in a tomato based sauce, not creamy though, and some chickpeas that were excellent, though our English friends did the ordering. I didn't like the chicken korma very much, but i am not a fan of coconut flavored dishes or light cream sauces. I would like to have Indian food again soon but want to know what to order. I do not eat red meat and try to avoid too many carbohydrates or fats, so light dishes would be best. What are the standard things to order in an Indian restaurant. Also, any recommendations for restaurants in the SF valley or westside?, i've heard Bombay Cafe and Gaylord are excellent.
