Bhojanic - 50 Best Restaurants - Features - Atlanta Magazine


Most metro-area Indian restaurants that offer honed, regional cooking tend to be vegetarian, but New Delhi native Archna Becker and her family serve meat dishes made with extra attention. The kitchen grinds its own spice combinations for lamb and goat curries, so the flavors chime on the palate with greater clarity. Meat-free specials reveal care, too: Punjabi kadhi—fluffy onion dumplings in seasoned yogurt—is a comforting recipe from Becker’s grandmother. India has become one of the world’s largest producers of corn, and its most famous use of cornmeal is makki ki roti, a flatbread thinner, firmer, and flakier than hoecakes. A thick dip of roasted eggplant, tomato, and caramelized onion accompanies Bhojanic’s roti. The menu does occasionally meander into fusionish territories: Malaysian breads, shrimp salad with a North-South mix of spices, cheesecake for dessert. I stick to the superior Northern specialties.

    This is not authentic indian food and probably the worst entrees, only their appetizers and rolls are worth eating

      @Nik Hi Nik,
      I have been to this restaurant more than once. Bhojanic has a predominantly North Indian menu and being from the North of India myself, I can assure you that the food is quite authentically Indian.

      IMHO, this is definitely the best Indian restaurant in town. But that, of course, is a very subjective thing.
