India Oven Restaurant Menu


::: We are pleased to offer you authentic Indian cuisine in our Portland community.  Some of the main spices and seasonings that we like to use in our food include cumin, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, mustard seed, fennel seeds, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves.


Sometimes we leave the spices whole and fry them, sometimes we roast the spices and at other times we grind them and mix them with water or vinegar to make a paste. Each of these techniques draws out a completely different flavor from the same spice. This way we give our cooking a great variety. :::

Tandoori Dishes (GF)

A 4,000 year tradition, served with basmati rice. Tandoor is the name of a vat-shaped clay oven heated with mesquite wood or charcoal. The oven produces extremely high temperatures, sealing the succulent juices of various meats keeping them moist, tender and flavorful. All meats are marinated with fresh herbs and spices in a "live" yogurt sauce and left to season overnight. Once seasoned they are skewered and baked in the Tandoor. This freshly-baked, mouth watering delicacy is then served from the clay oven with a green salad.
