Indian Delivery: India Palace

As promised, I was finally able to make my way around to experiencing some Indian food that doesn’t come from a box from the freezer. You may remember the Chicken Masala Samosas I had from my Easy Indian Happy Hour. This time we are going to the next type of Happy Hour Adventure with a Delivery Happy Hour Adventure.

Website

This place goes by several different names because on Door Dash it is India Palace, however, the website shows the name as Masala Bae. Whatever the name it serves up both Southern and Northern Indian Dishes which do have unique variations to them. Although I do see a mistake on their website because I’m sure they meant to say Fine Dining instead of Find Dining. I’m going to skip the menu portion for this Adventure because this place has one of the most expansive menus I have ever seen.

Mango Lassi

This time around I decided not to have an alcoholic drink this time around. The very first time I had a non-alcoholic drink was over at Verde Kitchen and that was just a glass of water. This is a whole lot better than a glass of water because it is a very classic Indian drink, Mango Lassi. A Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and in this case mango as the fruit. It has a wonderfully luscious and creamy texture which reminds me of drinking ice cream. I was almost thinking of adding vanilla or whipped cream vodka that I’ve had sitting in my cupboard for I don’t know how long. But I figured I’d keep things traditional and keep it in its original form.

Paneer Pakora

Next up is an Indian dish I have never had the opportunity of trying, Paneer Pakora. Paneer is essentially Indian cottage cheese. It is a soft cheese that has some bounce to its texture. The Pakora part is what you see on the outside which is the crispy fried batter. The batter has some very unique spices and I think the spice that came out the most was the masala spice which is quite distinct. I felt the Paneer itself could have been seasoned more but I think a sauce would have genuinely pushed the dish to the next level. Typically they are served with some sort of chutney.

Garlic Naan

One thing that I think is essential with any Indian entree is naan bread. It’s the perfect vessel for scooping up your food and sopping up any leftover sauce that lingers on your plate. However, I can’t just order plain old naan bread, it is all about taking it to the next level. That is why I ended up getting garlic naan and I’m sure you can see loads of diced garlic spread across the naan. I thought it was the perfect amount of garlic but then again I love myself all of the garlic.

Andhra Goat Curry

Last but not least is the Andhra Goat Curry. It certainly is not the prettiest dish I have shared on my Adventures so far. The color is not the most appetizing to look at either but in the end, it all comes down to taste. I can certainly say that the flavor that was missing from the Paneer Pakora ended up showing up in the curry. Andhra Pradesh is a state in South-Eastern and it is known for all of the spicy dishes that originate from here. I loved how the lamb chunks were bone-in so that way you can get the full flavor experience.

I wanted to give a shoutout to my mom because it was because of a DoorDash gift card that I received for Halloween that I was able to get so much food. I may only have gotten $5 off but any discount works for me. I was especially happy that I was able to spread this across a total of 3 meals in total.

I love a good spicy curry! On a scale from 1 to 5, what spice level do you want your curry at? If I have a Mango Lassi at hand then I’ll go all the way!

Let me know down below in the comments and be sure to share with friends and family that would enjoy this Happy Hour.

May the adventures continue! Cheers!
