Dansak or Dhansak Curry?

I just had a dish at a Bengali Indian restaurant in Edinburgh Scotland.

It was called "Chicken Dansak" (which you find all over the UK).

Dansak typically consists of a lentil sauce with sweet and sour flavors (maybe pineapple and coconut).

Is there tasty dansak to be had in Los Angeles? I want some.

  1. Radhika's in Pasadena has lamb dhansak on the menu. It's usually pretty good, too. We get it every time we order, but know that every time we order, the menu seems slightly tweaked. Different cooks every time? Who knows. But it's yellow lentil curry, as you say, decent size chunks of lamb. I'm sure if they make lamb, they'll make chicken.
