We're now serving up a tikka (tikka means chunk) made with eggplant. We marinade it in a yogurt marinade, skewer it and cook it in the tandoor. We then smother it in the same masala sauce we use for the chicken tikka. We're still working on getting it vegan, but in the mean time we'll be serving it up vegetarian style. Best part, we get a lot of the eggplant from the farmers market (I wont lie to you, we sometimes don't plan very well and need to make a run to the store for more). Most of our Eggplants come from Diane's Garden (one of the vendors at the Millcreek Farmers Market).
Yup, 100% whole grain naan. Just ask at the cart and we'll fix it up for you fresh. This is just as much for us as the customers. It's delicious.
10/hr, 15-25 hrs/week, must enjoy working outside with fire. The Curryer Tandoor Cooks operate the tandoor oven, a clay pot that gets up to 900 degrees. Duties include working dough into naan, placing marinated raw chicken onto skewers and cooking them to a safe temperature. Cooks must also Maintain a high temperature in the tandoor oven. This is a fun job in a small street food business. Let us know if you can drive and tow the cart, we don't need that now, but may come in handy in the future. In a small business you'll be treated with more respect than larger bureaucratic companies. Send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org
This Thursday and Friday we will be open from 11am-7pm at the usual location. See you there!
Here's a link to join Kiva.org, below I will also have a link to the following entrepreneur. Keep reading...
As you learned in Econ 101 access to money is a key ingredient in the growth of a nations market. Now is your chance to give entrepreneurs who wouldn't normally have that access to capital a chance to grow their businesses. With Kiva you can make contributions to loans in amounts as little as $25. That money is then lent to the small business of your choice and then repaid back to you over the term of the loan. Read the following story of Edizon of Ecuador.
"Edizon,35, is a fast food seller from Quevedo. He has set up his stall at a gas station where he works from Monday to Sunday in the afternoon and evening. He started his business with a small capital investment that he had saved from previous jobs, and thanks to this he was able to buy a cart from which he prepares his dishes to sell.
He attends his stall himself, from Friday to Sunday and sells salchipapas (sausages and potatoes), chicken, hot dogs, burgers and colas. He has an established sector which allows him to maintain his clientele. Edizon is married to Amada who is a housewife and also helps him to sell his products at the weekends. They have one child who attends public school. With money from the loan Edizon will buy chicken, potatoes and oil to sell. He is hoping to increase his income so that he can finish fixing his home." -Translation and journal provided by Kiva.org

Take a moment to visit the link at the top of this page and browse the loans. $25 can go a long way in many other countries.
Our costs have been on the rise, we've been putting it off as long as we can, but something has got to give, we're raising prices by $0.50 across the board.
This Saturday only we will be open between 11:30am-6:30pm. This is a test run, so if you want it as a regular thing get those friend and family to the cart that can't come on the weekdays. See you out there. Cheers!~Dustin
It's easy, download the app, set it up, then come by the cart and pay.
We've got some new toys to play with on the cart. We've got an iPad to use as a cash register, and a rubber stamp for printing our logo on the boxes.
Just an ink pad and a rubber stamp, branding made simple...and cheap.
You can learn more about the Square Register app at Squareup.com. Basically it lets us process cards using the little card reader that attaches to the headphone jack. The iPad acts as a point of sale system, allowing us to create custom buttons for ringing up sales. It then tracks our inventory usage and gives us some pretty nifty sales analytics.
BTW using square we also accept "Pay by Square" as a payment method.
For those who don't know, Holi is a holiday celebrated by Mormon teenagers south of Provo, Utah...har, har, har. It was a lot of fun, and I'm glad that our Indian neighbors shared the holiday with us. It was a fun event. Great food, loads of people and tons of dust. We even ran into a few of our regulars there. They even promised to take us to India to celebrate Holi, although I might have made that promise for them...without their knowledge ;)
