Tickle Your Taste Buds @ Indian Curry House

We’ve passed by Indian Curry House located on Sixth Avenue many times and have always wanted to try the restaurant food.

Maybe, it’s the hour we happened to travel (late nights), the place seemed lacking of customers. Perhaps, that was the subconscious reason we never got down to making a purposeful trip to eat there. However, the Groupon deal I bought gave us the opportunity to try Indian Curry House’s cuisine.

When I placed our delivery order on Foodpanda, I did not expect the Indian meal to stay hot when my children got home from work. I thought I would have to reheat them. Well, I didn’t need to and the grub stayed yummy enough for Ryan to have second and then a third helping.

My meal ordered online through Foodpanda's portal.

These were the freebies, Kalmi Kebab? They looked nothing like kebabs I was expecting. Perhaps they were two instead of four Tandoori Chicken for orders above S$100? I'm confused here.

What can I say about Indian food? They threaten to taste and look the same after a while but they are delicious! Our family never gets tired of curries (I like both Northern and Southern while my children prefers the former).

Dal Makhani Khaas:
The beans (tasted like broad red/kidney beans) and lentils were soft but not too mushy rendering it (a little too) creamy and deliciously chunky dish. Not quite as good as the one from Red Pepper (Melbourne, Bourke) but this will do in Singapore. By the way, this is a vegetarian dish.

Tandoor Chicken:
The free chicken drumsticks were were bone-in while the Chicken Tikka pieces were boneless. Both items were well marinated, tender and moist.

Butter Chicken:
Vanessa thought this dish to be one of the better ones she had tasted. Aromatic, creamy and looked very much like the Dal Makhani Khaas in colour. The boneless chicken were tender and flavoursome without the overpowering taste of Indian spices.

Chicken Tikka Masala:
The chicken was tender and moist like the other chicken dishes we had. However, the red colour of the dish was not as intimidating as it looked. It could do with more heat and less tomatoey-ness.

Plain Yogurt:
I had kept the yogurt in the fridge when it arrived. The yogurt was thick and not too sour. This dip helped to cool my throat after eating the pepper-spicy papadum (the 2 cigar-looking crackers in picture).

Naan:
The garlic bread had good char and were not too greasy. Recommended as substitute for basmati rice to mop the curries.

There was a piece of Chicken Tikka left after the 5 of us were done. I’ll make a tikka sandwich for breakfast tomorrow 🙂

Happy meal :)

* I saw on the menu that plain basmati rice is S$4.50 before taxes. Don’t know how big the portion is for but if it is for one, isn’t it a bit expensive? Ryan eats plenty of rice and instinct told me to cook my own – 5 cups of Thai Jasmine rice, lol…

Happy eating 🙂
