Poppadoms has quickly become known for their Indian food  served with a Okanagan flair. The colourful Indian restaurant’s food philosophy is to use wholesome food with quality raw ingredients. The owners can often be found at local farmers markets’ sourcing fresh produce for the kitchen. With an ever changing bounty in the Okanagan, the menu at Poppadoms changes as well. For winter they are adding a few seasonal items to their menu.  Pumpkin, winter squash, lentils, chickpeas and root vegetable korma are all being added to the menu for the colder months. They are the perfect thing to warm you up in the chilly winter weather.

Looking for a Christmas gift for the foodie on your list?  Poppadoms has got you covered with their Indian  cooking classes hosted by owner Jas Dosanj ($65+tax). Students are treated to a two-hour cooking class,  where they learn how to make traditional and fresh Indian cuisine with step-by-step recipes.  Following the cooking class students get to enjoy the fruits of their labour.

From November to January let Poppadoms add a unique Indian twist to your Christmas party. The restaurant is available for functions over the holiday season, for groups of 6-28 people. The kitchen has prepared two exquisite menus for guest to choose from, ranging from only $25-$35 a person. The Christmas party menu includes a welcome drink such as a mango lassi or a local wine, an entrée and a mouth-watering dessert such as pistachio kulfi ice cream and Mum’s gulab jaman.

To learn more about Poppadoms you can catch them on various social media outlets where they share a behind-the-scenes look  at the restaurant.  There you can watch the making of Mum’s vegetable pakoras and check out the authentic tandoor oven.
