One Book, One Watertown: Report

Last Thursday, October 9, was the date of our fabulous Indian dinner with Tamarind Bay, and our penultimate event for One Book, One Watertown.

After reading about all the delicious Indian food in the Namesake – because like any good family, the Ganguli family bonds through mealtimes – I was really looking forward to tasting what Jhumpa Lahiri had so lovingly described.

And Tamarind Bay, a local Indian restaurant, did not disappoint.  With heaping platters of soft rice, warm naan (flat bread), and plentiful helpings of vegetarian and non-vegetarian offerings, there was something for everyone.  There was chicken tikka masala, a dish made of tender chicken, a creamy tomato sauce, and mild spices, saag paneer, cooked spinach, cheese and spices, and a rich and tasty dish with chick peas that I didn’t catch the name of.  And then there were tasty side dishes, and a uniquely spiced rice pudding for dessert.  Tamarind Bay also enlightened our group of diners with a brief, but fascinating lecture on Indian food.

Luckily for you, if you missed our all-you-can-eat Indian Buffet, we still have some room open on Tuesday, October 21st where we invite Tamarind Bay back to do it all again.  Tickets are on sale at the library for $5.
