Atto’s Kitchen: Indian/Pakistani Home Cooking
Window walls around two sides of the shopping center space afford plenty of light even through darkened glass. Sweet pungent incense wafted through the room from a burner under the counter, and two big-screen televisions were tuned to an Indian cricket game. We filled the table with large and small plates, and only belatedly realized that everything had been made quite spicy-hot, without discussion.
A vegetarian alternative to meatballs and gravy, it consists of a half-dozen veggie balls fashioned from Indian farmer cheese, potatoes, nuts and spices all ground together and formed into deep-fried spheres, presented in a rich, creamy light-brown sauce of pureed onions, tomatoes, cashews and mysterious aromatics, served in a brass bowl with plenty of perfect long-grain rice. Garlic naan at Louisville Cafe India, a classic Indian wheat flatbread baked in the tandoor oven. One of the most beloved Indian dishes is biryani , pictured at the top of the page.
Dum biryani is a variation cooked in a heavy, tightly lidded pot so that the rice, meat, and other ingredients all steam together. The goat was particularly good, with four or five appropriately stringy but tender chunks of goat meat the size of 3-inch lengths of fat sausages, with only a few easily separable bones.
The meat had been permeated with an aromatic spice rub that enhanced the flavor while making it fiery enough that the accompanying bowl of cucumber-yogurt raita was welcome. The meat pieces were mixed in the biryani with exceptionally long-grained rice, some of which had been died with yellow and orange saffron to make it a pretty three-color mix, and garnished with half of a hard-boiled egg.
