Amul India definitely has the exotic tandoori spices they claim and really know how to use them. I have been extremely squeamish of certain families of squash my entire life (which can be an interesting challenge to negotiate when adding that limiting factor of deciding to take a stand that violence towards sentient individuals is not “food” in American culture, where most people have never heard the word “ahimsa,” which is the Jain concept that is at the heart of vegan ethics). I just don’t like the general texture or taste of: eggplant, zucchini or yellow squash typically served American style. I’ve found that the Indian, Ethiopian and Mediterranean cultures have mastered these squash preparations, transforming them so dramatically that I now embrace (what I had long detested) with anticipation and mouthwatering delight. Whatever preparations Amul India does to the Bhartha (eggplant) is downright amazing! Instant savory vegan crack! My server was happy to verify and ensure there were no animal products (ghee/clarified butter, cream) added to any of the food pictured below Aloo Choley (chick peas and potatoes) or Aloo Gobi (potatoes and cauliflower). If you have not ventured into the exotic path of plant-based meal preparation expertise spanning over 6000 years, you are in for a treat. Amul India is located at 5871 Sawmill Rd. Dublin. Open for lunch (11:30am-2:30pm) and dinner (5pm-10pm) seven days a week (hours vary on weekend)
