Curriez Indian Cuisine's cooks forge vegetarian entrees and meat dishes according to traditional Halal guidelines to fill the spice-soaked ranks of an authentic menu. Appetizers such as the vegetarian assorted platter, sporting a samosa beside veggie and cheese pakoras, serve as opening acts for savory soups including mulagatani, which is packed with tender chicken. Chefs rip the tandoori mix platter's chicken tikka, tandoori chicken, seek kabobs, and shrimp from the clay oven's fiery embrace. Meanwhile, succulent chunks of lamb frolic like a vacationing Marco Polo in a curry pool accented with ginger and garlic. Garnish bursting bellies or drab bibs with a sweet serving of rasmalai, starring house-made cheese dumplings steeped in sweetened milk and adorned with pistachios.
Curriez Indian Cuisine
Standing as high as the chefs' shoulders, a 1,000-pound clay oven heats classic Indian meals inside a pot-like chamber that reaches temperatures of up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The massive tandoor oven adds signature smokiness to a variety of comestibles, from soft naan bread to the customer favorite butter chicken, whose boneless slivers of meat come drenched in a creamy tomato sauce.
Curriez Indian Cuisine's pair of chefs, each with nearly two decades' worth of culinary experience, uses only halal meat when compiling hearty dishes. They can also leave meat out of the equation for vegetarian fare prepared on a separate, meat-free platform. Guests may enjoy their authentic Indian meals seated at a table or booth or inside the private dining room, which can seat up to 30 people with no more than three legs apiece.
