the best indian food in seoul BY FAR is DAL located next to gyoungbeokgung palace in an art gallery... ...next in line would be GANGA, with 3 locations...
whoops! sleeping when i wrote this (edited for pattaya flub) Embarassed



mack, there is a place in pusan (haeundai beach) called ganga...maybe the same chain? anyway, the food was pretty good but much more $ than usmania or taj in itaewon...they also served korean short grain watery rice instead of basmati rice - a big drag - perhaps the owner can't get the real thing in pusan. haven't tried DAL... reasonable prices?

wombat: how about opening your own place? we need as much variety as we can get here .

As an update we went to Taj Mahal. My chicken curry was ok, my naan bread was good and so was my friends roti. Nice friendly atmosphere and the buffet was very tempting at 17,000 won (next time!) We looked at a menu at Ashoka but it was out of our price range at 30,000 for the buffet. What a relief to eat something that wasn't korean or american fast food! Thanks for the tips everyone, hope to try some of the other places another time.

I'd be happy to post some recipes! I just hope everyone can find the proper spices; there are a few shops in the Ansan area, so if anyone lives around there, let me know, and I can show/tell you how to get there. A little pricey, but worth it. Smile

Here you go all - the first of what may be a series! Mack, you mentioned...

...Aloo Gobi

Ingredients

1 medium cauliflower
2 potatoes, boiled & peeled
1 tbsp. coriander finely chopped
1 green chillies
1 onion finely chopped
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. dhania powder (corriander)
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. curds (plain yoghurt; hard to find; soured milk okay)
1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
3 tbsp. oil or ghee

Blend to a paste:
2 tbsp. coconut grated
1/4 cup coriander chopped
3 green chillies
1/2 tsp. ginger grated
1 tsp. garlic grated
1 onion
1/2 tsp. wheat flour

Method


1. Break cauliflower into florettes.
2. Simmer in boiling water for 3-4 minutes.
3. Drain, keep aside.
4. Chop potatoes into medium chunks.
5. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, allow to splutter.
6. Add onion and green chilli, saute till pink.
7. Add paste, turmeric powder, dhania powder, saute for 2-3 minutes.
8. Add curds, stir continuously, till boiling resumes.
9. Add potatoes, cauliflower, cook till gravy thickens.
10. Stir occasionally to avoid burning.
11. When gravy is thick and oil separates, add lemon juice and it is done .
12. Garnish with coriander, serve hot with parathas.

**

I've made this one heaps and it always turns out well. Don't worry if the measurements aren't exact; curries are infinitely forgiving.

Wombat,

thank you thank you thank you! i've been "winging it" with my own recipe and yours sounds much more exotic and flavorful!

if i can find the coriander, i'll be a happy man! you can find plain yoghurt at carrefour (if there's one near you).

Never been to Usmania but Moghul (the place right at the top of the hill) is pretty good (someone else in here mentioned that it's called Taj Mahal. Has it changed?)

Moghul is behind the Hamilton. I thought the Taj Mahal was near Hooker Hill across from the King Club. (The Moghul is Pakistani, don't know if that matters much?)

There are a few Turkish restaurants up that way. I highly recommend any of them, but there's one right around the corner from the Mosque called Salam, it's very good.

I second Salam

If you cut up the hill behind the second hand book shop instead of taking the main drag up the hill you will find a small Indian Restaurant that pretty good.

Shankranthi...nice place.

To clarify, when I said that Moghul was at the top of the hill, I meant the small hill on the left side of the Hamilton, across from Usmania (not "the (hooker) hill". Was there on Sunday and the name remains Moghul.

This weekend I tried the Thai restaurant directly below Thai Orchid (name: Thai Suki? not sure). Don't waste your money. W15000 for a bowl of Tom Yum with 3 small shrimp. And that bowl of Tom Yum was about the size of a standard rice bowl you'd get at a Korean restaurant. When we complained to the waitress (the picture on the menu showed something entirely different) she replied "We strive for quality, not quantity" or something of that nature. Whatever. The soup was watery, as was the sauce on the fish we ordered.

Don't bother.
