Global cuisine | Indian at its best

A group of restaurants is cooking up a storm in NYC by catering to the Indian palate

Dhamaka restaurant in NYC

If a visitor from the US came to India looking for kudal varuval (spiced goat intestines), one might point them to a locally famous pitstop, possibly beside a tyre repair shop along the highway. Or, perhaps, to the home of a friend, where the labour-intensive dish is a house specialty. Or one could tell them to head to New York, where a heap of soft and spicy kudal varuval features prominently on the menu at Semma, currently the only Indian restaurant in the city with a Michelin star, which it won this October.
