29th Indian Delight Menu

Well, at last the long awaited menu is here!

Entrée
Batata Wada (mashed potato balls), Onion Bhajia (Onions with Gram Flour Fritters) and Beef Samosa served with pomegranate raita and home made tamarind sauce.

Starter
Roast Salmon with Dill and Mustard served with a green pea relish

The Salmon is twice marinated, firstly with a ginger and garlic paste, lightly seared then marinated in grated cheddar cheese, Greek-style yoghurt, wholegrain mustard, chopped chillies and single cream and baked in the oven. The green pea relish has a kick to it reminiscent of Japanese wasabi.

Main
Hot and Sweet Chicken curry with apricots garnished with potato straws and accompanied by pilau rice and chapatti

This dish packs a lot of flavours and textures and is dark, rich, sweet and spicy all at the same time! It has all the classic curry spices such as cumin seeds, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, cloves chillies ginger etc.

Dessert
Raspberry and White Chocolate Soufflé

I know! Not your typical Indian dessert I guess but it’s an absolute favourite of mine and therefore decided that after a night packed with such full flavours as above, it would only be justifiable to serve something as decadent yet so light and delicious as this.

I hope this menu inspires you as much as it does me and my aim is for every single person to leave with a smile on their face and a song in their hearts from having enjoyed themselves!

My next posting will be of the full menu and how to prepare the dishes
