To Stay Healthy, To Feel Healthy, Eat Healthy!
A word from the Owner/Chef:
In the San Joaquin Valley, Brahma Bull was the first and only Indian restaurant specializing in Northern and Southern Indian cuisine. Right now, this is the only Indian restaurant that makes authentic South Indian cuisine - and nothing out of a gits package! Everything you taste is fresh and in homemade style like our great grandmothers used to make in our South Indian village near Ongole. The name Brahma Bull originated from my hometown Ongole, India, where it is called the "Ongole Bull."
Many ask "How is your food healthy?"
Our dishes are full of Indian spices and herbs such as termeric, cumin, ginger, cloves, cardamom, etc. but nothing that will give you heartburn or a bad stomach (as the joke goes with Indian food). That's because we use green chilies or pepper to spice our dishes unless you request extra spice! Green chilies are actually good for digestion and don't irritate the stomach lining. Just be sure to tell us how you like it. We can make anything mild or extra spicy! Tip: Eat a spoon of yogurt or Raita to cut the spice. It's more effective than sugar for a burning mouth.
We use only pure unsaturated vegetable oils and use as little oil necessary to cook our dishes - unlike Indian food that you might have had in a lot of places. These days, many Indians actually prefer their meal with a lot of oil and butter so they can become big and look "wealthy." In India, the bigger you are, the richer you must be! However, our great grandparents didn't believe that. They believe that we need a balanced diet to work hard on the farm. They learned from the Brahma Bulls.
We have many vegetarian, vegan, and omnivore recipes and can customize anything to your liking with advance notice.
Eat well and live well!
