The following selection is a recommendation for a curry night in for two. The dishes selected are designed to satisfy two people who like dishes at opposite ends of the spiciness scale with some that sooth and some that are on fire!

Starter – Prawn Puri and Chicken Pakora

If I could – I would just have Prawn Puri for the whole meal. Lovely spiced prawns are served with a beautiful puffed bread for dipping and wrapping. Along with this is the classic Chicken Pakora – chicken breast fried in batter and served with salad and dips – lovely and cooling.

Main Courses – North Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken and Shahjahani Lamb Pasanda

These two couldn’t be more different. The fiery heat and intense flavour of the Chilli and Garlic in the lamb versus the mild almond flavoured Pasanda. If the chicken is a bit too hot – a mouthful of the lamb will cool you down in an instant.

Sides – Sag Aloo and a Garlic Nan

The classic Sag Aloo (spinach and potato) side dish rich with cumin seeds and the beautiful taste of Nan Bread coated with a rich garlic butter – designed for dipping.

A perfect feed for two – why not give it a try?
