Healthy Indian?

Unk | Feb 20, 2009 08:19 AM

I've a craving for Indian food that I've supressed for a couple of years now because I haven't found a place offering healthy food. By my definition, this means 'not swimming in oil or cheese'. I haven't really been actively looking, so it's more a random sampling of places I just happened to be passing, when hungry, and with enough time to consider a meal.

In India, I've found places - not many - that offer such fare, both Northern and Southern Indian styles, so I'm convinced that the spicy-ness and flavor of Indian food is possible without the oil. As an aside, I'm also vegetarian/vegan, but that's much easier to deal with than what I perceive as the health issue.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
