Beat the Winter Blues with Spicy Indian Flavor

Has the cold weather and dark days got you feeling blue? Since the Pacific Northwest will lack proper Vitamin D for months to come, Seattleites must find other ways to stay warm. Spice up your winter at India Gate Restaurant, where the authentic flavors of Northern India are sure to warm you right up. Our dishes are perfect for a cold winter’s day—the spices will clear those sinuses right up!

Spicy foods have many health benefits that can do wonders for your health and wellness, especially during the winter. Indian spices such as turmeric have been used for centuries to treat respiratory problems. Studies have shown that curcumin (the yellow pigment in turmeric) prevents inflammation and mucus in the airways, protecting lungs from pollutants and irritants in the air. Traditional ingredients of Indian cuisine such as chili pepper, onions, curry spices and garlic help alleviate sinus congestion by thinning mucus and reducing the risk of infection. Eating a spicy Indian dish is a natural decongestant—a healthy alternative to medication!

At India Gate Restaurant, we will always ask how spicy you prefer your food. Try your dish hot this season to heat up that winter haze. Our curries, veggie dishes, tandoori meats and masalas are all great options for spicy flavor. Ease the burn with extra rice or coconut ice cream! Not a spice fan? No worries, we can make your dish completely spice-free so that you can still enjoy delicious Northern Indian flavor without worrying it’ll be too hot for your taste!

Come beat the cold this winter and India Gate Restaurant with some hot hot heat!
