Bukhara Indian Bistro in Jamaica Plain

As promised, the Indian food I had for lunch on my first full day of vacation. We went to Bukhara Indian Bistro on Centre Street, just a short distance from the seminary.

Is three a crowd? Generally speaking…Yes, I believe it is. But not when it comes to three different kinds of vegan Indian food. Pictured above is my Pindi Chhole, a lovely stirfry of chickpeas, green peppers and tomatoes. I got it mild so I wouldn’t get a runny nose or hiccups….

C’s Baingan do aloo, featuring twice baked eggplant, potatoes, cilantro & scallions, and what appears to be a huge chunk of red pepper. Also mild.

Finally, we have the Tofu saag, featuring the delicate hands of a doctor so eager to eat he couldn’t even wait for me to finish taking the picture (the day we met, remember?). Oh, you want to know the actual ingredients in the food? Sure. Tofu tossed in spinach gravy. Medium heat for this one.

By the way, doesn’t the table look really cool?

We also got mushroom samosas, but I was too busy eating to take a picture. Everything was good, and the portions were very large (at least for us girls). Sadly, we left our boxed leftovers sitting on the table when we left the restaurant. We would have gladly eaten the leftovers for dinner, but instead we ate at the cafeteria.

A salad of baby spinach, tomatoes, red onion, green & red bell peppers, kidney beans, chickpeas, olives cucumber and sunflower seeds (did I miss anything?) dressed with olive oil and sea salt. The hummus is what it made it, though.
