We are all so busy nowadays that planning evening meals that are enjoyable and interesting can easily drop down the priority list. However we need to eat, and we all benefit from good nutrition, both in terms of how we look and how we feel, and most importantly to maintain optimum physical and mental wellness. Longevity is the key, staying well because we live well, not just when we are inspired to engage in a health kick. Often food tastes better when the flavours of the ingredients have time to infuse, so the slow cooking method can produce a delightfully tasty meal with only 10 to 15 minutes prep that morning or the evening before. There is often resistance from people to engage in a weight loss programme because they have the belief that there is too much effort required in cooking, and they will not be able to commit to it. This belief is unfounded says Motivation Weight Management.
Galway has always been known for its diversity — a town of exotic sailors and Connemara tribes, this medieval city has been a melting pot for as long as it has existed. We have well established Chinese and Thai restaurants, and more recently some terrific Japanese ones. For fans of Indian food, however, Eastern Tandoori has being offering consistently delicious examples of this varied cuisine to Galway diners for some time now.

For fans of Indian food, however, Kashmir has been offering consistently delicious examples of this varied cuisine to Galway diners for some time now. Indian food is the 'Marmite' of global cuisines — it evokes a love or hate attitude that other ethnic traditions just do not get. There is often an excess of heat over flavour that has alienated many a diner. Not so at Kashmir.
Many people think that all Indian food is spicy/hot and full of calories. This can of course be true, but many dishes do not have any chillies whatsoever and those that do can be ordered without them. So never be afraid to try Indian food just because you do not like fiery tastes, talk to the waiter and you will be surprised by the choice available. In fact the dishes I will be mentioning later are all extra mild. With regards to the calories it is true that some dishes are well endowed but there many, such as tandoori dishes, that are cooked without any oil being added. Again talk to the waiter if you are watching the calories and ask for recommendations. If you are a vegetarian you will be well catered for. In fact in India it is more normal to eat vegetable based dishes and I think the menus that you see here in Ireland and the UK were designed to keep us meat eaters happy.
Way back in the dim and distant past I was a devoted customer at the Eastern Tandoori in South William Street, Dublin. It was the very early 1980s and in the days when I had an expense account that included lunch every day (God bless Digital). This meant that I had an Eastern Tandoori lunch at least once a week, and while there were other Indian restaurants to choose from, this was the best.
