Indian food delights with its color, fragrance, and unconventional flavor pairings. Tempt your tummy with meat and vegetarian dishes that erupt with ambrosial herbs and spices. From pan-fried breads, like naan, to curries and tandooris, fall in love with this distinctive cuisine at the desert’s best restaurants.

Let the winds of Monsoon Indian Cuisine bowl you over. With its fun décor and extensive menu, Monsoon can’t be beat. Nosh on lamb ka shorba, which is lamb soup flavored with Indian spices. Or discover a new favorite in the chicken tikka masala — boneless oven-roasted chicken cooked with an aromatic, creamy, tomato-based sauce.

Eat like royalty at Delhi Palace Cuisine of India. On any given evening, locals and visitors to Palm Springs dine outside at this exotic hideaway. Try the prawn saga, which satisfies with its butter-fried shrimp, cooked with freshly chopped spinach and special sauce. Or pop the paneer pakora into your mouth and smile with delight.

Lunch becomes an extraordinary journey through a foreign land at India Oven. Drop that ham and cheese sandwich and head to this Cathedral City hot spot for vegetarian and non-vegetarian specials. Sink your teeth into shrimp masala, fish pakora, or vegetable samosas. India Oven specializes in gluten-free and vegan dishes, so all diners can enjoy its menu.
