A new Indian restaurant from one of India's most famous chefs has opened in Irving. Called Vishnuji Ki Rasoi, it's part of an international concept and is located in Irving, at 2427 W. Airport Fwy.
This location opened April and is the first in Texas.
Founded in India, Vishnuji specializes in simple, comforting vegetarian food, done in a home-style manner. Recipes and spices are created under the guidance of Vishnu Manohar, a celebrity chef in his own country where he makes frequent appearances on TV and in cooking competitions. He's been called "the most admired chef in Central India."
The menu focuses on the central region of India with a mix of north and south delicacies, particularly Maharashtrian cuisine, from the central-western state of Maharasha — primarily vegetarian and considered to be diverse as far as spices go since the state is so large.
Vegetables, lentils, and grains including wheat and rice play a big role, and if you like breads, you like Maharashtrian food because they have a whole collection of goodies such as vadas (like a doughnut), pavs (like a dinner roll), and polis (like a pancake).
