At first glimpse, Jotmahal’s menu looks completely generic in that it rarely strays away from safe curry-house standards such as chicken tikka masala, matar paneer, and various meats grilled in the tandoor oven — the kinds of dishes you’d expect to be able to find at any Indian restaurant in America. If you judge Jotmahal solely on its execution of these crowd favorites, you’ll likely walk away satisfied, if not unduly impressed. Read through the menu a little bit more carefully, though, and you’ll notice an unusually high number of dishes that are marked as “Punjabi specials” or “North Indian favorites,” revealing the restaurant’s particular regional slant. Start with what might be our favorite version of chole bhature in the East Bay.
