Nominated for: BEST Indian
At the Clay Oven, we not only offer you the best of Indian cuisine, but also take you on a culinary tour around India. Our Indian cuisine is unusual in its flexibility and diversity as there are no rigid recipes or rules and it reflects the various influences of religions, cultures, foreign invaders, and the geography and climate of the country. One significant influence on the cuisine of India has been the Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu treatise on health. Ayurvedic texts have influenced how foods are prepared and consumed, thereby contributing to a healthy body and a better quality of life. The most commonly asked question about Indian food is “What is a curry?” In India, it simply means a dish with gravy made with a lot of fresh herbs and spices with fish, meat, or vegetables as the main ingredient. At the Clay Oven, we use fresh seafood, poultry, lamb and vegetables, steeped in subtly-flavored marinades and finished to perfection in the tandoori oven, that are remarkably low in fats and oils.
