My mom introduced me to curry when I was young. She would use yellow curry powder and make this delicious curry with potatoes, carrots, and pineapples over steamy white rice. Once in a while she would even put meat in too. Sadly, she claims she has forgotten the recipe and has not made this dish in a very long time.
Years later, I would discover that there are different types of curry and that many cultures incorporate curry into their cuisine. My absolute favorite is Japanese. To me, it’s the least spicy and the sweetest.
Instead of making my own Japanese curry which I like to simmer for hours until everything is melt in your mouth soft, I headed over to Star of India.
A mango lassi to start off. Not too sweet or too thick. Nicely chilled and refreshingly smooth.
Two orders of Garlic Naan since I like to dip my naan into my curry. It wasn’t as soft or thick as I am use to, but was still acceptable.
My order of Lamb Saagwala which is lamb sauteed with fresh spinach and simmered in a blend of herbs and cream sauce. I ordered a side of rice as well. This dish was a little bland though and not spicy enough for me to find uncomfortable.
I’d say Star of India is average as I have not tried any other Indian restaurant in Utah yet. For a Groupon deal, everything lacked that special something that would make me go back to try other dishes. Because of this, I would only recommend Star of India if you are in the area and wanting Indian food. I would not go back unless a friend insisted.
