Finding authentic Indian cuisine in Israel is like searching for the Holy Grail: unlikely. Considering the thousands of Israelis who travel to the East in search of relaxation, enlightenment and/or other delights, it is surprising that, for the most part, the few Indian restaurants in Israel serve up a pale representation of this vibrant cuisine. They tend to be managed by Israelis who are afraid of or lack sufficient knowledge about spices and focus mainly on malai kofta, a North Indian vegetarian curry dish revered by Israelis above all others.

There is, however, an Indian man in Jaffa who makes the most delicious and traditional food in his own home.
