tonight sam and i had take away from another neighborhood restaurant. hinlay curry house. this cozy restaurant is really just a hop skip and a jump from our house.
which is super handy when i don’t feel like cooking (which is most nights) or being embarrassed by the delivery driver arriving at our gate one more time.
tonight sam and i tried a variety of the curries. we also had the yellow rice and some garlic roti.
my food photography skills and my lack of a non yellow/brown plate to serve yellow/brown food on sort of fail me here. but what you see moving clock wise is –
- yellow rice
- mutton dopiaza – delicious pakistani mutton curry with twice as much onion and aromatic spices as the other dishes. this curry has a thick, tangy sauce with lots of taste. delightful!
- pumpkin curry – southern indian-style pumpkin curry. Mushy, with pieces of tender pumpkin soaked in mild spiced sauce. the pumpkin gives it a mild sweet flavor.
- chicken tikka masala – recognized as a “british national” dish nowadays, it is cooked in masala and cream sauce and has a delightful flavor of its own. best choice when you don’t know what to choose.
- shrimp masala – shrimps cooked in masala and cream sauce. has a delightful flavor.
and on the second plate –
- garlic naan
the descriptions are straight off their menu and all are pretty accurate. i don’t think you can go wrong with anything, at least all the dishes we tried this evening were very good. sam’s favorite is the shrimp masala and i am a big fan of the pumpkin curry.
