$2.95 » Himalayan Kitchen's crispy shards are a good introduction to those who've never had (nor liked) Indian cuisine. Anyone who enjoys a good onion ring, in fact, can immediately understand the appeal of a crispy coating and sweet-tender onions.
In this case, the crunch comes from chick pea (garbanzo) flour and the onion's flavor is supplemented by spices such as cumin. Dip each into the red-brown tamarind chutney for tang or the blended mint chutney for a refreshing bite.
Himalayan Kitchen is at 360 S. State St., Salt Lake City; 801-328-2077. Hours are Monday to Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; Daily, 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.
