Roti – Indian Dinner

Most of the Asian restaurants were closed today so we found ourselves at Roti – an Indian restaurant in Queen Anne. This is the 2nd time we’ve been there and we love the food. The restaurant has fairy lights all throughout it, giving it a festive ambience.

We started with samosas with some chutney and mint yogurt.


Then we shared 2 entrees: Methi [Fenugreek] Chicken and Lamb Biryani. Both delicious.

  1. the biryani looks really good 🙂 did you order mango lassi? an indian meal is incomplete without it – and it soothes the tongue from the spices 🙂

  2. For some reason, I was thinking that samosas were a dessert. Are they more of an appetizer? I guess that it depends on what type of dipping sauces you serve with it? I’ve had sweet samosas before, as dessert. I think there was honey on them?

    STEF: Lisanne, I have heard of sweet samosas – do you remember what filling it contained? It’s typically savory from my experience in Asia. Usually filled with potatoes, and veggies. Of course spices 😉

  3. Yum! We had Indian twice last weekend and I had a craving for it all day yesterday. I think I may have to pick some up today on the way home. James says he feels like it stays with him for days– just that it’s so heavy. I don’t even think about that. I just eat! Do you ever feel like that?

    STEF: Mike says it tends to grow in him that particular day but then it does go away. I think the spices create some gaseous effect that fills your stomach. 🙂 For me, it’s just yummy Indian spicy food. You should find Methi Chicken – it’s good stuff.

  4. Stef, I’ve never had samosas filled with anything! Unless I’m thinking of something different. Hmm. What I had to eat were these little round balls, very sweet, soaked in honey (and something else). They were kind of spongey, not filled with anything?
