Best Indian Cuisine at Madam Chutney:
We began our dinner with a tasty Indian appetizer: the Samosa Chaat - a potato filling complemented by a variety of chutneys.
For our main course, we delighted in the Tawa Chicken, a traditional dish featuring juicy chicken legs and thighs cooked to perfection on a griddle(Tawa). It was served alongside a refreshing salad, mint chutney, and rice. What set this dish apart was the fact that it wasn't overly cooked but maintained its juicy texture, with the spices.
We also ordered the Tandoori Chicken, which was barbecued to perfection and served with a tomato gravy, along with complimentary rice.
The Butter Chicken, with its ideal balance of spiciness and subtle sweetness, is truly the essence of authentic butter chicken. It was garnished with cashews and served with plain white rice.
To complement these mouthwatering dishes, we also ordered Garlic Naan and Laacha Paratha (Indian Baked Bread), perfect for soaking up the rich gravies and enhancing the overall dining experience. The Authentic Mango Lassi is an ultimate combo with spicy food.
We've noticed that the main course servings are typically quite generous, usually more than enough for one person.
For dessert, we decided on Shahi Gulab Jamun, which consists of milk balls dipped in sugar syrup with cardamom, served alongside mango ice cream. The Gulab Jamun was incredibly soft, practically melting in your mouth.
And, of course, our dinner wouldn't be complete without savoring a comforting cup of Masala Chai.
