Full-time vegetarians will like the masala dosa and Bombay-style puffed-rice snacks at Shiv Sagar, an Indian place on the southwest side. Also look for palak paneer, a rich spinach dish on the restaurant's Punjabi menu. It is normally served with rice, but the little soft round breads called purican be substituted. The spinach is exceptionally rich with clarified butter, and the puri are light and fluffy like fresh flour tortillas. Ice cream connoisseurs will be in heaven. If you like Cherry Garcia, wait until you taste such exotic Indian flavors as saffron and pistachio. The Indian fruit flavor, chikoo, and rose ice cream are musts, too.
