The chefs at Korma Sutra dish up authentic North Indian cuisine in the Mughlai tradition, employing flavorful spices, rich gravies, and organic ingredients whenever possible. Dinners begin with pani poori, where crispy wheat shells lug mouthfuls of masala sprouts, potatoes, and mint. Noshing duos or quartets spoon up the soup of the day or use their tongues to juggle a trio of soup shots, including tomato basil, lobster bisque, and mulligatawny with garlic, basil, and naan. For the main course, flavor-laden entrees parade into mouths with traditional dishes such as the herb-rubbed tandoori chicken. Fusion fare boasts its Indian roots and love of baseball with the lamb sloppy joe stocked full of onion bhaji and vindaloo-aioli tapenade.
The Korma Sutra
The Korma Sutra’s chefs build elegant traditional and fusion-style meals from South Asian spices and small batches of fresh ingredients. Sweet and spicy flavors converge in a range of homemade pickles and chutneys, which include candied jalapeños, medleys of carrots, and chili peppers. Like a debate team made entirely of dragons, a traditional tandoori oven uses the power of hot air and flames, sealing in flavors as it cooks meat and from-scratch flatbreads. Unexpected French influences enrich several dishes, such as the chevre- and brie-stuffed chicken roulade and a chicken tikka served on herb brioche. Traditionalists can indulge in classic Indian specialties such as creamy spinach saag and cashew-studded korma that can be customized with seven types of protein, including tilapia, goat, and lamb. Upon request, the kitchen tailors meals for vegans, gluten-free diners, and bamboo-dependent panda dignitaries.
