    Hi Everyone :)

    Tonight I am due to have dinner with a good friend at a local Indian resturant , this will be my first order off the menue expirence in a Indian resturant. I went with another Friend(RIP) this past september for a Indian buffet lunch and picked at a few things , I think I had chicken and barley. What would you guys recommend for a first time order off the menue at an indian resturant ? Thanks

    Chicken Tikkha Do Piaza. With chips and a keema pilau. Exactly what I had last night when I went out with my mates to the Curry Capital in the Bigg Market. We also had a pot of ""Curry Hell", certified by the Guinness Book Of Records as being the hottest food on the planet. That stuff is from another planet!

    Maybe you could order a takeaway sometime!

    Tandoori mixed grille. Most indian restaurants have this item. It is a sampler of chicken, lamb, shrimp and perhaps a sausage or other type meat all cooked in the tandor. Succulent.

    Get a mango lassi to drink. They are absolutely amazing.

    If it's on the menu, I'd recommend Lamb Korma. It has a yogurt-based sauce that is awesome.

    And, +1 for Mango Lassi.

    The strange thing that I find about kormas (and indeed, some malaysian curry which has coconut and banana as a flavouring) is that the sauce tastes like something you'd eat for pudding!

    Anything spicy, anything with rice, anything with chicken, or any combination of the afformentioned.
  8. Saag and Tikka Masala, baby... and be sure to order plenty of Garlic Naan.

    Damn, I'm getting hungry.
  9. vindaloo, biryani, nann, yogurt.

    I think they prefer to be called Native Americans. But from what I hear, the Cheroke meat is the most tender! :bag:

    Throw in a Double Diamond or a Kingfisher or two and you have a good evening in store. Or you can come to my place. I cooked Chicken Korma, a chicken Biryani and Saag Paneer last night.

    Most places will have Chicken Tikka Masala. I usually have Murgh Makhani. Anything Korma (the yogurt stuff) is really good too, especially in contrast with something spicy. If you see the word vindaloo, it means spicy. If you can get naan (the bread) stuffed with lamb that's pretty great too. Enjoy, Kevin!

    Palak Paneer (or Saag Paneer) which is a fresh cubed cheese and spinach dish, Seek (or Sikh) Kabobs, and Chicken Tikka Masala...

    For breads, get a Naan (or two) and maybe a Poori...

    Remember that it's made to be finger food so don't be afraid to rip off a bit of Naan and scoop up your main courses with it. Enjoy, I love Indian/Pakistani food.

    From what I understand, Chicken Tikka Masla is not an Indian dish, but a British dish. Probably worth a google if you are so inclined.
