Maharaja

Every Wednesday afternoon, our favorite local radio station, WNRN, gives away a $25 gift certificate to Maharaja, one of our local Indian restaurants. I've often called in and tried to win without success, but a couple of weeks ago I finally won. Tonight we didn't feel like cooking so we used the gift certificate for a cheap dinner out.

If you're very firm about getting every bit of dairy out of your diet, you should ask about the use of ghee (clarified butter) and yogurt at Indian restaurants. Some use these ingredients more liberally than others. At Maharaja, we've asked and they don't use ghee in any of their vegetable curries. So as long as you get something that's not in a cream sauce you should be OK.
