Indian Flavors in Westland [DTW]

VTB | Mar 31, 2013 07:36 PM

Since the restaurant named Indian Flavors was mentioned in a couple other threads, I figured I'd start one of its own. Went there today for their advance-order Surati Undhiyu vegetarian curry, containing "a variety of vegetables such as vaalor-paapdi, small brinjals, banana, yam, sweet potato and muthias, and cooked with freshly grated coconut, ginger and garlic." I don't know how it is supposed to taste, but it was one of those executions where one sensed it was the essense of what the (great) dish is SUPPOSED to be. Also, the bread was subtly excellent in flavor.

Wonderful and healthy. Not intense like Zayeqa, but impossible to dislike. I'd eat this twice a month if I lived nearby. The menu was confusing, as I couldn't tell what was and was not included with the meal, so I ended up accepting a bunch of upcharges I'd prefer not to have had. Still, I'm very pleased with this dish. Among the all time top three Indian dishes I've enjoyed in Michigan (for what that's worth...I've not actually been to India).
