Wishing Sioux Falls had an Indo-Thai fusion restaurant?
You can get a taste of what we’re missing at the 605 Made Night Market on Aug. 25 from one of several food vendors.
Greens & Spices, an ethnic grocery store that opened earlier this year on 41st Street, will offer an Indo-Thai menu, said Eswari Muthu, who owns the business.
She’ll be cooking a Thai red chicken curry, samosas and dosas.
“All of the ingredients in these items are things you typically could find at Greens & Spices,” Muthu said.
The first dish will combine a red curry paste and coconut milk with bamboo shoots and chicken. It will be served with jasmine rice.
Samosas are popular in many parts of the world. Muthu will make hers with wheat dough that’s filled with seasoned chickpeas and potatoes, and then fried. She will top them with onion, tomato and cilantro, and serve them with a choice of sauces: one made with cilantro, a second with tamarind and dates, and a third with plain-flavored yogurt.
Dosas originated in southern India but are eaten across the subcontinent. They are similar to pancakes and are made with a fermented batter. Muthu will serve them with sambar, a lentil-based vegetable stew.
Muthu, who has been cooking these dishes for more than 30 years, said her dream kitchen is going to become a reality at the 605 Made Night Market.
The market will be from 5 to 10 p.m. Aug. 25 on the east side of Cherapa Place in downtown Sioux Falls.
The owner of ethnic grocery store Greens & Spices will be selling three Indo-Thai dishes at the 605 Made Night Market.
