I have my sister-in-law, Christine, and brother-in-law, Brian, to thank for introducing us to the yummy cuisine of the Indian persuasion. When we moved to
Omaha, they invited us out to Jaipur, a restaurant in . I loved it from the start, but Jake has had a little more trouble finding something he would order again and again. But find it he has! Rockbrook Village
My perfect Indian meal at Jaipur:
Appetizers: Vegetable Samosas - mildly spiced vegetable turnover (pictured below)
Green side salad with a creamy, tangy citrus dressing (comes with meal)
Bread: Garlic naan - chewy bread, almost pita-like, stuffed with minced garlic (pictured below)
Main Course: Chicken Korma - boneless pieces of chicken cooked in a creamy curry sauce, served with Jasmine Rice (white rice with an infusion of jasmine)
We both prefer the vegetable Samosas over the meat ones, though Jake often orders some of both for his main course. He told me recently that his mouth started to water at the thought of the Samosas. So we have reached success at finding Indian food he likes!
Beware of the tricky lunch hours at Jaipur. Be sure to call ahead to see if they’re really open before you make plans to go. Twice I’ve had the misfortune of arriving during off-hours!
