On a cold winter day, there aren’t many meals more satisfying than a curry. The richness of the sauce, the depth of the flavor and the warmth of the spices create the perfect sauce to sip with a hot garlic naan. Himalayan Spice has no shortage of hot, spicy and gravy dishes to choose from including korma ($ 15), biryani ($ 13-20), tandoori ($ 15-20), madras ($ 15), dhaniya ($ 15), and tikka masala ($ 13-16). Each comes with your choice of protein including chicken, lamb, goat, salmon or shrimp and there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. “It’s home cooking. We use the spices to enhance the flavor of the food, ”said Bhattarai.

Although the entrees are the star of the show, the entrees are also quite delicious and there is a lot to choose from. Bhattarai’s favorite – the momo ($ 8) – are fried balls of Himalayan origin served with homemade Sichuan pepper, sesame and tomato sauce. The samosas ($ 6) are cooked to perfection – perfectly crispy and thin on the outside and tasty and warm on the inside.

For dessert, there are several delicious options including kheer ($ 4), gajar haluwa ($ 5) and coconut kulfi ($ 4) – all fresh desserts which are delicious after a hot and spicy meal. Kheer is rice pudding, gajar haluwa is Indian carrot pudding, and coconut kulfi is Indian coconut ice cream.
