What is your Favourite Indian Dish?
Years ago there was this amazing restaurant in Bermuda name Bombay Cycle Club. They were my exposure to what amazing Indian Food tasted like. I first experienced Baingan Bharta and Tandoori Lamb Chops there and they are yet to be matched anywhere else I have eaten. I have eaten Indian all over the World but this place had such a high level of good food that it became an addictive staple in my weekly dining. Sadly it closed down, not because of the food...or so I was told.
So what Indian Dishes excite your palate?
Murg Methi is probably my fav, but I don't encounter it all that often.
I once had Tandoori Chilean Sea Bass that blew me away. Once. Haven't seen it since.
Other greats are Murg Xacutti, Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicen 65.
Whatever I order, I specify for the chef to make it as hot as he's willing to.
I don't have the broadest experience of it, as I tend to choose the same items when I have Indian, but I do love butter chicken with some naan.
And those sticky dough balls thing for dessert,
When we first were married and I was discovering Indian cooking, I swear I made gulab jamun once or twice a week for a year. Maybe it's time to have it again, altho' now I love jalebies or rasmalai.
For savory, hands down, the prosaic palak paneer, but only at Koshi's in Bangalore. With lots of fresh naan (I'm making naan today, and I have spinach, hmmm, dinner ideas!)
