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?

  1. 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.

    1. it may not be exciting... but one of my comfort dishes when I am sick is Korma with paneer...

      1. Hands down, paneer shahi masala.
        Soooo good.

        But I don't get to have it that often since my partner's stomach can't handle the spices in Indian food *sob*

          This is probably my top dish as well. I love paneer!

        2. 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!)

                Making naan, eh? Lucky squirrel.

                My favorite Indian dessert is pistachio kulfi. Problem is, it can vary in quality a great deal. But the good stuff, IMO, is the best "ice cream" on the planet.

                  If it ever cools off, I'll do pooris on the patio to avoid the oil smell in the house. Love Indian breads.

                  1. re: pine time

                    I'd love to make my own pooris.
                    Poori masala is one of my favoutite Indian dishes.
