Dinner at Amma in NYC

I went to Amma for Restaurant Week w/Karem because we both really like Indian and this RW dinner deal includes five dishes.  The service was a little spotty and the place itself oddly loud, but the food was decent for the price.  Unfortunately definitely not the best Indian food I've ever had, so would probably not come back.  But I'm glad we tried it.
Hara Bara Cold Soup - mixed vegetables with herbs & chef spice.  Def had a kick but was a nice starter. 

(L) Trio of Pakora - fritters of cauliflower, cottage cheese, and onion, and (R) Delhi Chaat - chickpeas, potato, yogurt, mint, and tamarind chutney.  Karem was detoxing from meat this week

Malai Prawn - marinated with coconut milk and hung yogurt, and Chicken Pakora - spiced chicken fritters.  The shrimp was tasty but couldn't really taste the marinade.  The pakora just tasted like pretty bland fried chicken.

(L) Rice, (Front) Chana Saag - chickpeas and spinach with spices, (R) Manchurian cauliflower.  Karem seemed to enjoy it and was pretty full about half-way through

Butter chicken - boneless chicken in creamy tomato sauce, rice w/peas, and Manchurian cauliflower.  The chicken was good; tasted like chicken tikka masala.  The cauliflower had a sweet taste and kind of tasted like sesame chicken sauce.  The portions weren't too large but I got full from the richness

Naan was tasty.  Nice and buttery and light

Karem's strawberry cheesecake that she took to go

Mango Kulfi - mango flavored reduced milk ice cream.  Not my fav.  Was so frozen had the consistency of a chocolate bar
