Wizardly fingers at Spice Kitchen conjure flavors from throughout India, simmering traditional curries and firing tender meats in a traditional Indian clay oven. Fresh curry leaves flavor delicate, golden gravy in the Southern chicken chettinadu, and a vinegar marinade tenderizes morsels of lamb vindaloo before they plunge into a tomato-and-chili curry. The tandoori bellows fire at plump shrimp, searing in juices that would otherwise have disappeared in a puff of smoke and a cackle of maniacal laughter. Sliced okra and cauliflower peek out from a wilderness of 17 vegetarian dishes, including appearances from the dashing, dark lentil curry dal makhani sporting a splash of cream. Flesh out meals with a side of garlic naan or tandoori roti to soak up saucy remains and polish plates for overworked dishwashers.
Chandeliers glitter above white tablecloths in the tangerine dining room, and primary-color umbrellas shade tables on the patio and gossip about the tertiary hues on passing cars.
As he stands before the blazing ovens at Spice Kitchen, Executive Chef Choudhary has a single thought in mind: "How can I make this dish the best it's ever been?" Choudhary's pursuit of perfection has taken him from India to New York to Pennsylvania, and infuses the food on Spice Kitchen's menu. Choudhary's meals are built upon a foundation of Northern Indian culinary traditions. This means lots of fragrant, flavorful spices, from the delicate chicken korma to a platter of kebabs roasted in a tandoor oven. Just because the restaurant is renowned for its traditional dishes doesn't mean Choudhary is averse to experimentation; his take on chicken tikka masala replaces the standard tomato sauce for an unconventional cream sauce summered with onions and spices. All of these dishes pair well with Spice Kitchen's fresh naan, kulcha, and other breads, which a reviewer from the Montgomery News says diners "would be foolish not to order." These feasts and more unfold within the restaurant's spacious dining room, which glows with the incandescent warmth of the candles that light each table.
