Rajdoot – Calgary, Alberta, Canada

We read that this place had a good variety of vegetarian options, so we went out of our way to go here and eat. They did have an excellent variety of vegetarian options, as most Indian restaurants do. We started with a vegetarian appetiser plate – containing samosas (no peas!), paneer bhaji, pakora and an interesting cold chickpea and potato salady thing. It also came with a variety of chutneys. The paneer bhaji was the highlight on this plate – however, everything else was also pretty good. We followed this with malai kofta, dhal and navratan veggies, along with rice and a variety of breads. The highlight of the meal was definitely the malai kofta! The dahl and the veggies were not as spicely flavoursome as we are used to. The description of the bread that I ordered on the menu was raisins, almonds and something else blended into a naan bread, however when it arrived, it also had those glacé cherries chopped up and blended into it – meaning that I absolutely hated it… I hate those cherry things. Luckily Martin didn’t care too much and shared his chapati and roti with me! All in all it was an ok Indian meal, I think we are completely spoilt by having a really good Indian restaurant very close to home and sadly this means all Indian we eat will be compared to that…
