Food and wine are inexorably linked. Like fish and chips, shoes and socks and Little B and Aishwarya. There are some things in the creators' ensemble of wonder that are meant to be together. There is no denial to the fact that all sorts of Indian cuisine are dimensionally enhanced with the addition of perfect bottle of wine. So what exactly does constitute the perfect bottle of wine for food?
Last but not least - set out a meal plan for the week. I found that this minimises food waste, especially when it comes to buying perishable food types such as fruit tikka masala vegetables. It is not the first time that I would have bought scallions (also known as spring onions), chillies and ginger thinking that I MIGHT cook a stir fry next week only to forget all about it come Monday night.
After all of our questions were answered, my fiance and I were ready to order. Knowing that I am a curry fan and the slow cooker slow cooker authentic chicken tikka masala Massalla had a curry taste with a twist, I figured that this would be the best meal for me. On the other hand, my fiance likes a more spicy taste so, she went with the biyrdiani. How long it took to get the food was another thing that I planned on writing in this review however, I don't even know how long it took because we were so into the live band it felt like seconds.
Place then on a plate and garnish with sliced onions and chopped cilantro. Squeeze lime juice on the tikka masala pieces - serve and enjoy. If you are using a contact grill - like a George Foreman G5 grill, then there is no need to flip the chicken and you can cook for 5-8 minutes for even cooking.
The downside of the Star of India is that it isn't fast. Many have gone there and waited for 45 minutes for their dishes. This may be due to a smaller staff or to the extensive preparation that goes into the food. Either way, unless you are coming for the lunch buffet, plan to spend a bit of time out of your evening.
I won't even begin to tell you how good this restaurant is. Not only can you get a drink really cheap at the bar 2 feet from your dinner table, the curry house gets the taste just right. My husband and I both had a 'oh my God, this stuff is amazing' moment while we were here. I would really recommend the Lamb vindaloo or slow cooker chicken tikka masala Tikka Masala, they were both really good. The vindaloo was also soaked in sauce and cocktail onions which I really love in a good vindaloo.
Heat the cooking oil in a pan and add cardamoms, chopped garlic and allow them to heat till they get brown. Then add, tomato puree, sugar, 1 teaspoon of chilly powder, salt, almond paste, garam masala and mix them all well. Heat the mixture for few minutes till it gives out an aromatic smell, then add the pieces of chicken tikkas and mix them well. Allow them to heat for 15 minutes at low flame and continue to stir the mixture for some time. Serve the dish with hot chapaatis or naans and enjoy the most popular dish with friends and family.
