What are lite Indian dishes? Biryani? Tandoori?

Kydd | Jan 10, 2006 09:32 PM

Does it defeat the purpose trying to go to a place like Spicy Mina's or Tangra Masala and looking for something on the liter side? The appetizers, e.g., samosas, are deep fried and most of the sauces are loaded with cream. And dosais are filled with potatoes and I believe are fried. Biryani and anything from the tandoori seem the most obvious...Any other suggestions, especially at the lunch buffets?

Of course I indulge in the tikka masalas and palak paneers, but I was looking for alternatives...I've seen some places that offer dishes with fruits, e.g., mangos...
