I love Indian food.  I love spicy curries and masalas with warm basmati rice and naan bread.  Lately, I discovered a new Indian treat: flaky and buttery rotis at Kasa.  They wrap rotis around tasty chicken tikka masala or lamb curry with marinated onions and chutney to make tasty kati rolls.  Dip these rolls in a refreshing raita and they’re simply scrumptious.

Kasa is cool because they make simple and flavorful homestyle Indian food. They use natural and local ingredients. And for under $15 you can enjoy a wonderful meal.

Kasa is an Indian eatery at 18th and Noe in the Castro. Follow this link to know more about Kasa.

For those people like me who are a bit unfamiliar with the varieties of Indian flatbreads and who have always equated Indian food with naan, roti is unleavened while naan is leavened. Kati roll is a popular Indian street food that consists of a flatbread wrapped around seasoned meat or vegetables. Chicken tikka masala is a curry dish of roasted chicken, chicken tikka, in a rich red, creamy and tomato-based sauce. Raita is a yogurt-based sauce or dip seasoned with coriander, cumin, mint and other herbs and spices.
