You go to Big Bear for fishing or skiing or hiking, not for high cuisine - especially Indian Cuisine. So discovering a gem like the appropriately-name Masala Craft is an unexpected dividend,
It is a tiny place almost hidden among other shops on the main street of the tourist Village, with walls covered with beautiful authentic Indian art, the first hint that an authentic Indian meal awaits.
We went for lunch, which offered nice combos at less cost than the full menu, which was also available. The Chana Chat appetizer of chickpeas mixed with tamarind, yogurt was a perfect start, followed by two"lunch specials" - Lamb Pasanda and Chicken Tikka Masala - both to die for, with fresh-baked naan, and sides of lentils, rice, vegetables and salad. The only problem was finding space for it all, because it was all too good to leave on the plate!
