Chand Palace
257 Littleton Rd
Parsippany, NJ  07054

Good Food : 4.5/5 | Good Service : N/A

A hankering for Indian food led me to sample Chand Palace. Since it was late by the time I got to my hotel, I decided to do takeout instead of doing the evening dinner buffet (which looked and smelled great!). My order consisted of the Bayngan Bhurta and an order of the Aloo Parantha.

Descriptions from Chand Palace’s menu :

Bayngan Bhurta : Whole Eggplant is partially roasted in the Tandoor, before being mashed and blended with Tomatoes, Onions and simmered with Mild Spices and Herbs.

This dish was fairly mild. You could taste the charred eggplant, which gave the dish a slightly smoky flavor and the tomato-based sauce and spices gave the dish its hearty presence.

Aloo Parantha : Parantha Bread stuffed with delicately Spiced Potatoes. I was a little disappointed in the bread, as it didn’t get evenly cooked & was a little greasy and slightly tough.

Dinner came with an onion/tomato chutney. My basmati rice was seasoned with toasted cumin seeds.
