Indian food is different from rest of the world not only in taste but also in cooking methods. It reflects a perfect blend of various cultures and ages. Just like Indian culture, food in India has also been influenced by various civilizations, which have contributed their share in its overall development and the present form.
Foods of India are better known for its spiciness. Throughout India, be it North India or South India, spices are used generously in food. But one must not forget that every single spice used in Indian dishes carries some or the other nutritional as well as medicinal properties.
Our Head Chef James Fairchild explains the menu and why how he created the dishes…
“Bombay potatoes are a very popular side dish in India so we decided to play on this and create a soup using a vegetable base stock to compliment the spices also using coriander oil as a contrast behind the gorgeous yellow colour. The Bhaji, also known as a pakora (originating from Karnataka) is also great as a starter or you could have these as a side with the mains.
For the main course we have Chicken Makhani which is a beautifully creamy dish, originating from Punjabi cuisine developed by the Moti Mahal restaurant in Dalhi. Also we have a delicious vegetable jalfrezi, where we have marinated the vegetables which then we fry to give the sauce a real rich thickness.
On the sweeter side, we have a cardamom cheesecake which is an infusion of English and Indian. A sweet with Indian spices also known as a Kulfi, is a traditional Indian sub-continent ice cream. These light desserts are the perfect way to end your meal”
We do hope you can come and see us over Indian Week.
