There’s nothing like a bit of Indian food to comfort and hold you on a cold summers night! It was drizzling and cold out and I couldn’t help but ask for something spicy and for something saucy to warm me up from the inside.
The yoghurt and tamarind sauce licks the fried spinach, chickpeas and potato pieces and is simply out of this world! I never knew vegetables could taste this good! The sauce is sweet, spicy and tangy whilst balancing the contrast of so many textures. There is a lot happening at once and you can’t tell what’s what, but that’s simply the best part. The guessing game.
The next starter was a show stopper. Gracing us with its sizzling and searing presence, I couldn’t help but film the moments that ensued. The baby lamb cutlets were succulent and juicy flavoured with subtle spicy notes. Dipped with mint yoghurt and drizzled with lemon, simply gave it the perfect send off.
I had a bit of a teensy tiny sook that we didn’t get something spicier but I am a woman of compromise. I gave in to having the butter chicken and subsequently, with no regrets! It was a buttery, creamy and saucy delight. A delight I knew my hips were going to pay for later.
I made a special order for the garlic and cheese naan. They don’t serve it on the menu but they are more than happy to prepare one for you upon request. The naan bread is garlic-y, cheesy and delicious when dipped, wrapped and covered in the butter sauce.
