  5. These are gorgeous!! Since becoming vegan, I have fallen in love with Indian food - soo yummy and healthy. My favorite dish would have to be biryani rice with veggies and raisins :]

    ReplyDelete
  6. Those are so beautiful! And the story/purpose behind them is great.

    I'm a big fan of a good curry dish. In fact, we're making curry tonight for dinner. :)

  11. I've been obsessed with Punjammies since you first posted about them! So gorgeous.

    Indian food is my absolute favorite cuisine (especially in the colder months!). It's hard to pick a favorite, but right now it's malai kofta with some naan AND rice. Mmm.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love these tons and bookmarked them last week! A favorite dish impossible to choose, but top three: pani puri, saag paneer and daal...And now I'm hungry.

  15. Ooh, these are gorgeous! And such a fantastic cause.

    It's hard to pick just one fave, but I recently enjoyed some Aloo Gobi Masala. It was pretty delish!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love these jammies, so beautiful. I don't know if this is really Indian or just North American food, but I do love me some good butter chicken with naan bread. I also love veggie korma!

    ReplyDelete
  17. punjammies! sooo cute and wonderful!

    i love me some gobi manchurian!

    and any kind of daal. nom! i'm having indian food for dinner and can't wait! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love these pajama pants and the company idea! Favorite indian dish is almost anything homemade...absolutely the best comes from a friends kitchen. Too many to name.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love homemade naan and hummus with some sauteed veggies on top! I've been eating this a lot lately. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow! I was sold by how beautiful these are, but reading about the project made me want to buy them even more! I’m getting a pair right now and those Aamani as soon as they’re back in stock!

    As for the food, I’ve never been a fan of Indian since most of the dishes are too spicy for my taste, however I do like Tandoori Chicken and I’m thinking of trying some of the dishes that have been pointed in the comments. Thanks everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love sag paneer, made with homegrown silverbeet and homemade (when I can be bothered!) paneer. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a fabulous giveaway and a REALLY great cause. My favorite food is Indian Food, so this is an easy one to answer. I love Saag Aloo. I wish I had some right now.

  23. I used to live right near two Indian restaurants (literally within two doors of one another). The old story was that there was a family split, and one brother left to start his own place. I ate at both places a lot, but tended to go to the one that was mildly cheaper. I always ate saag chole (spinach and chickpeas)

    And also! Mango lassis. Yum.

    What a company, and such beautfiful fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Amazing! I found out about Punjammies a few weeks ago and was already planning to get them for my mom, aunt, and grandma for Christmas. And maybe a pair for me! ...And the bf said he wants a pair too....

    I love all sorts of Indian food, it's impossible to pick a favorite, so I'll go with this incredible paneer korma I had last week at a new Indian restaurant in town. I also always think of the amazing cashew butter korma I had in Nepal..mm. And lassis are awesome too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. These are beautiful! Definitely going to see if any relatives want a pair for the holidays. Thanks for the giveaway.

    My favorite Indian food is Chicken Tikka Masala.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Also posted on facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I actually just got a pair with a t-shirt in the mail that I ordered for my father's wife for Christmas...I must say, I desperatly want to keep them for myself, they're so nice! Anyway, my favorite Indian dish is Vegetarian Biryani (sp?)!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. awesome! i love these :)
    pani puri is your favourite....its pretty high up there for me but i think i have to say a lot of street food!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't know if naan counts as a dish, but it's my hands-down favorite. Mmmm!

    ReplyDelete
  30. chicken tikka masala! loooove this idea and the pretty jammies.

    ReplyDelete
  31. So cute, and such a good cause!! My favorite has always been and always will be chicken tiki masala!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maybe I'm less adventurous than a lot of people because I haven't eaten at any Indian places other than a little hole in the wall Indian place by my college campus.

    They have the BEST chicken curry. I'm serious.

    Anyone from KC wants to go, let me know and I am game!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Naan, of course... and then saag paneer. Delish!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favourite has to be a good old curry... chicken tikka masala. So delicious! Can't go past one without drooling. YUM!

    I'm in LOVE with these punjammies!!!!!! I've spent ages trawling through all the different styles and patterns!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Shared on Facebook too!! <3

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, those punjammies are so fantastic! :)

    I love chana masala or saag paneer... and roti. mmmm.... indian food!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. A plate of vege samosas with tamarind chutney pls & ty.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My family originates from India, so Indian food is pretty much a staple in my house! As for my favourite food - even though it is very simple, I could eat samosa all day long :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. These look like they'd be just as comfy as they are gorgeous!

    I love mattar paneer... so much so I'm trying to re-create the dish in my kitchen. What I end up with is tasty, but not quite like my takeout favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love those pajamas! And Vegetable Korma with Garlic Naan <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, man. So, I've recently discovered this Krishna group on my school's campus. They make the BEST tofu spaghetti with an almond ginger sauce on the salad. My mouth's salvating just thinking about it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Samosas!!! Oh my goodness just thinking of them is making my mouth water!!

    Now that I've moved to a more diverse city I'm hoping to expand my 'exotic' cuisine!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I loooooooooove naan, I guess that isnt really a dish, but I will grub on that all day.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Chicken Tikka Masala. Hands down. I could dip my naan in it all day long. Scrumptious.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ooh, these are adorable! and saag paneer is my favorite indian food. so tasty and wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Buffet all the way. I can't be expected to pick one thing!

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are so cute!
    I have a confession. I've never had Indian food. I love trying new things. I just haven't had a chance yet.

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is such a cool website! I've never heard of that before, and I'll definitely be recommending that to everyone I know.

    I've actually never had Indian food... I live in the middle of nowhere, unfortunately. Soon, hopefully, I'll be able to really travel to India!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I haven't had Indian food! But I'd love to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  50. YES! These are amazing! I'll be honest, I've only had Indian food once in my life and it was when I was little and I accidentally ordered something incredibly spicy! I'll have to try it again this week!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I asked for a pair of these for Christmas, but I'd love another to give to my best friend! So gorgeous. My go-to Indian dish is dal makhani....lentils, cream and tomatoes? Yes please!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those are adorable! The two pants I like the best are sold out- but I'll have to keep checking back. I'm in the market for some jammies anyway and that is so much more meaningful then spending $50 on a VS set.

    My faaavorite indian dish is some roti, aloo ghobi, and veggie samosa. my boyfriend and I hit up the indian buffet in albany every week (5.95 what whaaaat! one thing i'll miss about being here for school!)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Punjammies are just beautiful - the look and the idea.

    I'll take a curry dish and lots of naan any day (pretty predictable, probably). :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Those are beautiful! My favorite dish lately is malai kofta, but I'll eat anything my local Indian place dishes out. Mmm.

    ReplyDelete
  55. i haven't really ventured further than chicken curry. i would love these. i wanted to get some a while ago (read about it somewhere on your site) but they were all out of my size of anything i wanted. =\

    ReplyDelete
  56. These are so cute! I love the daal makani (spelling it completely wrong?) that my friend's mom makes, biryani when it's not tooo spicy, and all sorts of naan. <3

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have to try more Indian foods to find my favorite. I will have to make note of what these other readers suggest.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Palak Paneer is my all time favorite. And I just found a recipe online, guess that's what's for dinner tomorrow!

    I'm in love with Punjammies, first the name is ADORABLE & now I have to get some as gifts for the ladies in my life :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Aren't they pretty!

    I don't eat indian food that often, but I'm always up for samosa! We had a yummy veggie dish once but I couldn't tell you the name of it...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Anything curry, anything with naan.

    Love those prints.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favorite is chicken tikka masala with naan! Yum. Indian food is my comfort food!

    And what luck! I've actually been searching for some Indian-inspired jammies! This is perfect timing!

    ReplyDelete
  62. My favourite is the old classic - chicken korma. Good comfort food!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My favourite is tandoori chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  64. palak paneer, tied with chana masala. also lassis...and dal....and really everything!

    i love the punjammies designs! such pretty colors.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've never had the opportunity to taste indian food, but I just googled Panipuri and it looked AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  67. o man! those are so cute!! love em.

    indian dishes! i never know the names of these things. i think i have shied away because i am sensitive to spicy food! plus i eat raw food...however...i do LOVE Naan bread and miss it sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  68. These are really beautifull! Wanted to buy one for my sister, I'm sure she would loved it. Was really sad to find out they don't deliver outside US :(

    I was really enjoying indian food as well as their culture, when I spent 3 months there. So, it's hard to pick only one favourite.. Loved their breads, samosas, masalas, chai, lassi,...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ah! I wanted to buy some but they don't seem to ship outside of the USA!

    ReplyDelete
  70. My favourite is butter chicken but it's soooo unhealthy. Korma would be the next one as I don't really like Indian food. I do how ever love Peshwari Naans could eat them on their own!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I saw these on pinterest the other day, so awesome! I really love curry and naan bread!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Breads like paratha filled with potato!

    ReplyDelete
  73. These are adorable!
    I love golgappas, even though I sometimes get the sauce al over me.

    ReplyDelete
  74. So cool!
    I haven't had much Indian food, but I do love me some tandoori chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I just ordered some of these as Christmas gifts, would love to win a pair for myself :)
    My favorite Indian dish is Mali Koftas and naan ~ made by my husband!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am wildly in love with these! As for Indian food, I can't help but eat ALL the naan, any form of potato/chickpea curry, and samosas. Preferably all three at once.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love punjammies! So gorgeous and such a wonderful business model.

    Favourite Indian food? Does naan count? Because it's pretty much the best thing going! Otherwise, I do love some aloo gobi - because, curried potatoes? The best!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Chana masala has been my new Indian fave. Love these PJs!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was already thinking I would buy some of these! I better do it, soon, I think.

    But, just in case I win! My favorite Indian food are dosas. Masala doas. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Those Punjammies are wonderful. I wish I hadn't already bought my Christmas supplies. We have no Indian food here so the only thing I am familiar with is the curry sauce my Irish bf likes on his chips.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Love these - and they have capris for us shorties!

    Favorite dish is navratan korma. Mmmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I Love Punjammies! My favorite Indian dish is Baingan Bharta! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I am sad to say that in my 47 years, I have never eaten Indian food. I think I may have to remedy that soon. I do love Punjammies, though.

    ReplyDelete
  84. my very favorite thing in India is the amazing Chai everywhere. I didn't have coffee for two weeks and didn't care at all.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Love the panjammies! Beautiful! My fave Indian dish is palak paneer but really i love all of Indian cuisine!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think my favorite Indian dish is Chicken Tikka Masala.

    I just say these Punjammies last week on "Daily Grommet". They're gorgeous and they benefit a most wonderful cause.

    ReplyDelete
  87. My favorite is Lamb Tikka Masala with garlic naan. Or Aloo Mattar. Or Samosas...

    Darnit...I can't choose! :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Thank you for this lovely opportunity as well as pointing out an amazing organization! Their stuff is so pretty!

    I haven't had much in the way of Indian dishes but I really love peach and mango lassi! :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. What a great cause/business model! I love seeing people be given the opportunity to help themselves.

    Also... I'm a total sucker for veggie tikka masala.

    ReplyDelete
  90. These are beautiful. I live in pyjamas at home, so a win would be very welcome. I could wear them while I eat Paneer Dosa! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  91. These are lovely! I would totally wear them as not-pj bottoms! I like onion bajhis!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love cauliflower korma, though I don't know if that's even an Indian dish or just some hybrid I invented! :-) Love love LOVE this project - it warms my heart to see women taking their destiny back into their own hands.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Tandori chicken and naan

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love so many Indian dishes, but I'm going to go with naan. I could eat it with every meal and never be tired of it.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Those pj pants are exquisite! My favorite Indian dish: samosas. I could eat 15 in a sitting.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I've wanted these for awhile. I always forget what it's called so I had to look it up, but I really like Aloo Matar. And a really good piece of garlic naan. Mmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  97. I how I wish they carried maternity sizes! I think my sister would love the Nanu though.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I would say 'buffet' but I don't think that's the answer you're looking for. So! I'll go with vegetable korma.. with a side of coconut naan.. and tamarind, mint, & onion chutneys.. and a side of palak paneer.. and a small bowl of kheer with a couple orange wedges.

    ReplyDelete
  99. For some reason, my local thai/chinese restaurant also happens to serve naan. I think one of their cooks is from India, so he snuck it onto the menu. It's fantastic! And goes remarkably well with thai cuisine.

    I'm in love with these jammies. The story behind them just makes them extra awesome beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love punjammies! The actual pants are great of course, and after watching the princess video, my heart was breaking and I immediately added punjammies to my Christmas wish list. My baby girl is 5, and I just can't imagine....

    I love curry shrimp!

    ReplyDelete
  101. My favourite is a chicken Bhuna & a Chapati. All my friends laugh at me as this sounds even funnier in a North British accent!

    The punjammies as so beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Aloo Gobi! Even my 12 month old loves it! <3

    ReplyDelete
  103. Sarah Von, thanks so much for spreading far and wide the lovely inspirations you come across! These Punjammies are so great. I think it's the first time I've ever been excited to see products sold out.

    I love any and all Indian food, but my current go-to for lunch here in Curry Hill is saag paneer. So good!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love Pani puri too! delicious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. i love a lot of indian dishes, but sweet sticky jalebi is my favourite!

    ReplyDelete
  106. The Rattma capris are too cute. I think i will have to outfit the wonderful women in my life with some of these fabulous pants!

    ReplyDelete
  107. These are so gorgeous! My favorite is palak paneer, or veggie samosas. Mmm

    ReplyDelete
  108. I've been craving butter chicken all day (and will therefore be making it for dinner) -- it's my absolute FAVORITE Indian dish!

    ReplyDelete

    onion bhaji and veg samosa for appetizers
    malai kofta and mutter paneer and chana masala with some deliciously soft naan!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Malai Kofta!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Kabuli naan for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think my favorite is Chicken Korma, but I really like going to Indian restaurants with someone who knows a good variety of things to order and sharing, that way I get to try something new!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I haven't had enough Indian food to have a favorite. I do love a lot of what I've tried so far.

    ReplyDelete

    I don't know if I could choose one Indian dish as my favourite - if I had to, I'd say any kind of paneer. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Let's see...so hard to choose one! I was lucky enough to live near one of the top-rated Indian restaurants in the UK for a few years (plus three or four more in town), so have stuffed myself with lots of deliciousness...I have to say, nothing beats a nice korma. Not adventurous but so good.

    ReplyDelete

  139. I hope it's not too late to enter this giveaway, but I think the fabric and colors used in the Punjammies are just gorgeous. Favorite Indian food...sadly I have to confess that I don't remember a lot of the names of Indian food that I get, but I do know that once in awhile just get a craving for a solid potato and peas samosa, yum!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Love daals- could eat them every day :)
