Mausam Curry N Bite: The perfect comfort of Indian food on a rainy day

As I made my way down the cold, rainy streets of midtown Manhattan, I had only one goal in mind: comfort food. My toes were freezing and the only thing I could think of was filling my belly with the sweet, spicy taste of Mausam Curry N Bites’ simply classic chicken tikka masala. It didn’t disappoint.



As I walked up to the red truck signaling Indian food, there was a bit of a wait as my fellow patrons and I looked at the extensive menu. It’s simple enough to make a decision, though.



You start by picking one of five curries (tikka masala, curry sauce, palak/saag, mughlai or vindaloo, all served with basmati rice) and then pick your style (mixed sauted vegetables, boneless chicken, boiled mashed potatoes, Indian cottage cheese or boiled baby corn). As I ordered the classic dish I was craving, the sweet man serving me asked if I wanted to upgrade to the curry rush and I just couldn’t turn him down.



For just $ 9, I received a huge plate of chicken tikka masala, basmati rice, a little side salad, a side of chapati (flatbread rolled up) and a water or soda. Despite the rain that continued to drizzle on me, I dug into my dish almost immediately. The dish, which I got as a “medium-light spicy”, was the perfect blend of just enough kick without overwhelming my sensitive palate. It was exactly what I needed on a day that started and ended with cold and rain.



The Curry N Bites food truck, born out of restaurant Masaum Indian Cuisine Bar Banquet in New Jersey, also features small bites like samosas, kati rolls and includes a full vegan menu with four full options. Plus, if you’re craving a sweet way to end your meal, they also serve up a delectable mango lassi drink.
