SANTA FE, N.M. — I have never been to India, nor have had much desire, unless in a linen suit, lugging golf clubs. It has been a popular destination for spiritual “seekers” over the centuries, where many pick up new names and old parasites, either of which might last a lifetime. (My guru is still Yogi Berra, so we’ll leave it at that.)
I do love the cuisine of India, and when I get in the zone for it, I head over to India House on Cerrillos Rd., next to Auto Zone.
I love India House. The stated mission of the ownership and chef Kewal Singh Dhindsa is “to serve delicious affordable food that guests will want to return to week after week.” They do, and have, since 1992, and in honor of the imminent Indian elections, I headed over on a recent afternoon with a pal who has a daughter named India.
