Every now and then, we get a craving for Indian food. One of our favorite places to get carry out is situated in a little plaza on State Road in Cuyahoga Falls. Raj Mahal is a “hole in the wall” kind of place with great Indian food. We’ve been getting carry out there for years, usually ordering the exact same thing…
Vegetable Samosa – crisp patties stuffed with savory potatoes and peas, served with two chutneys (one spicy, one sweet)
Chicken Kesari, saffron rice and naan bread
He said…If there is anything like Indian “comfort food” this is the dish. This is one of our favorite things to eat if we ever have food apathy and nothing sounds good. The saffron cream sauce is rich and delicious. It’s a large portion of cubed chicken and sauce. One order is plenty for both of us. The samosas are always crispy and flavorful. I’ve tried them at other Indian restaurants, but they never compare.
She said…The saffron cream sauce that the chicken is cooked in is one of my all time favorite things to eat. You can order it mild, medium or hot, but beware that although we love spicy food, hot translates to inedible for us. Dipping the naan (which is the best around) into that sauce or making a little “sandwich” with the rice, chicken and sauce wrapped in the naan is simply fantastic!
While the place itself is not much to look at, go grab some carry out. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
