my RI friend organised a north indian cuisine dinner @ chat masala on 10.7.2017. ^^
we had 6pax. another friend who is vegetarian joined later at 9pm.
i hardly had north indian food as no kakis…except in london my family went to dishoom a few times…food at chat masala is better & the range of food many times more.
my friend made excellent orders for this evening.
we thoroughly enjoyed the food. i shall be back! ^^
the starters were all very good – veg samosa, pakora, fish vadais, yogurt?
& the coriander cheese triangles – cheese naan came with an excellent eggplant dip.
really nice indeed!
we ordered 2 tandoori roti, 2 romali (hankerchief) roti & 1 garlic naan…
the romali (hankerchief) roti was the best! tandoori roti dry & the garlic naan also dry out a bit over the course of dinner.
butter chicken was very good. chicken was tender & gravy was excellent!
this a favourite dish when my children were young…we had home parties then & sometimes we ordered from delhi restaurant & went to pick up the food for small 10-15pax parties.
kerala fish curry was very good too. gravy was very tasty & fish had firm texture.
one friend like this dish – a must order for her.
this was black lentils, different from the usual yellow mung dhal…
we also had palak paneer – cottage cheese in spinach gravy…nice too…
cottage cheese in north indian cuisine tastes kind of like tofu…
for me the best dish was the mutton briyani.
briyani was loose, individual grains, just next texture, not oily, but the best was the mutton – so good! &large serving of mutton…
at this carb-less age, we finished the rice & there were still mutton pieces to enjoy.
i not into indian dessert…they usually overwhelmingly (sickeningly came to mind) sweet!
these ones here were a tad better.
but gulab still far too sweet.
the kulfi were better, both mango kulfi & also baileys kulfi..
very small helping though & prices quite ex…
dinner for 6pax +1 came to about S$175, really good price for the excellent food we had…
i would say this chat masala food is much better than the dishoom dishes we had in london.
