A Curry Hill restaurant is opening up a second location in the East Village, and as part of the new menu, it's planning to offer up what it's calling desi poutine, a South Asian twist on the French-Canadian staple. If you're not familiar, in its native form, poutine is french fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.

At the new Desi Galli location, slated to open on April 16th at 172 Avenue B, at East 11th Street, the updated poutine will be topped with tikka masala gravy and grated paneer. According to an announcement by the restaurant, the dish is inspired by co-owner PriaVanda Chouhan's childhood in Montreal.

Desi Galli specializes in Indian street food, and touts its gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options. Indian/Pakistani-inspired poutines come in all sorts of configurations, and seems to be widely available in Ottawa and Quebec, Canada. Desi Galli claims that its version is the first offered in New York City.

We'll refrain from judgment on the dish until we try it, but it certainly looks like a good option after a long night touring the neighborhood's drinking establishments.

The new Desi Galli Location is set to open from noon to 11 p.m., Sunday to Wednesday, and noon to 3 a.m. Thursday to Saturday. For more information, visit the restaurant's website.
