OK, so feel free to burn me if you want, but my favourite Indian take away is the below. I know you all will not agree with me on this, but hey it’s a free country.
To start I like onion bhajee with mango chutney. But they have to be crispy and not too salty. You can also use them to dip in your curry sauce, which makes them a pretty versatile starter in my opinion.
For my main I like to go for Pasanda Khybari. This dish is cooked with succulent tender pieces of lamb in a thick rich sauce, perfect for dipping bhajee. You have to vary it a bit, so I usually like to go for a fish or a chicken dish as well. Of course I don’t eat the whole Indian take away all by myself because that would just be greedy, so I usually give a tiny bowl to my girlfriend, just joking by the way.
My next favourite is Karahi Murgh. This is a chicken dish which is made using chilli, peppers and tomato. Also to help me get my five a day I usually add a vegetable dish. The best option to really finish off my perfect Indian takeaway is Aloo Gobi, cauliflower and potatoes just work so well together and it’s not too spicy either, so it’s not over powering.
For me personally I always have to have a peshwari nan with my Indian take away, it acts as a great sauce absorber and adds a certain sweetness to my meal. If you think my perfect Indian take away is rubbish and you have a better suggestion, please feel free to leave a comment.
