Kabab & Curry’s: A User’s Guide
Pakistani and Indian Cuisine | Bib Gourmand 2011 & 2012 | Tender Tandoori Meats | Fragrant Curries
From the tandoor: seekh kabab beef—minced seasoned beef on a skewer
Curry: chicken kadahi, a Pakistani dish made with tomatoes, bell peppers, garlic, and onion
Kheer: traditional Indian rice pudding
From the Press:
"Indian buffets abound, but Kabab and Curry's is a standout." — Metro
"The tandoori chicken at Kabab & Curry's is so addictive. It’s so moist and tender, and practically falls off the bone, without being at all greasy. The spice hits the tongue in clusters—smoky here, tangy there, complementing the flavor of the chicken rather than overwhelming it." — San Jose Mercury News
In awarding it Bib Gourmands for the years 2011 and 2012, the Michelin inspector raved about the “fragrant chicken boti kababs, coupled with creamy dal makhani and slabs of charred naan for soaking up those savory sauces.”
Roti: an Indian flatbread that, unlike naan, is unleavened.
Biryani: an Indian rice dish made with fish, meat, or vegetables and saturated with spices such as saffron and turmeric.
