Lamb Jalfrezi, veg rice, sag aloo and garlic naan please.
Couple of Cobras to wash that shit down.
The more onion the better I say. I'll take some pilau rice and a keema naan too.
And I'll second the couple of Cobras. Essential.
pelaw rice, plain nan
is no one questioning that because i'm northern?
racists. it's not even true.
or chicken vindaloo if I'm in the mood
chicken karahi/methi gosht
+whatever's on a deal at the offie
This man knows. Judging by your choices, you should try masala fish if they have it. Those sort of places often do (Mirch Masala does, anyway).
i really want that, fuck
I'm going to the one in Tooting tonight and I'm tempted just to have that and a plate of lamb chops.
(which we ate without complaint) i've taken to just ordering double portions. the last time i went our table had to order a third plate after we'd finished the first lot. it's trouble.
I went with one of my larger mates once and he ordered a plate for dessert.
Give Mirch Masala a try next time if you've never been, I think prefer it to Lahore Kebab House. It's less busy and they do very similar stuff. I actually think their chops are a *bit* better.
i don't live in the UK anymore so i only really get to go every few months with the same group of people. it's hard to lure them elsewhere. the mixed grill at Needoo's is incredible too, but the place is so small it's not as easy to get a table quickly.
Ah, ok. Yeah - Needoo is great too.
Needoo's Dry Meat is unbelievable though.
but most of all
prawn puri *dribbles*
i'd say my most common choices are sag paneer and mixed veg karahi. if i'm making one at home i usually go for sweet potato, spinach and chickpea though.
tend to pick something different everytime, with mushroom pilau rice and a garlic naan
Massive chunks of chicken tikka, chunks of potato and minced lamb in sauce.
With a garlic + cheese naan and a bit of veg pilau rice.
PUT IT IN ME
I had a Cheera Chicken from a kerala Indian place the other night though and it was phenomenal.
Plain or garlic naan. No rice. Partial to saag aloo.
Keema rice, onion bhajis, five poppadoms, Cobra, loose trousers.
or you don't have a regular?
but don't really have a regular. Different curries different moods.
you were almost on the list
Plain naan (2)
Salad and mint sauce
Would really like a curry now
just nearly ordered a balti off justeat you bastards
you get some of your money back
Actually going to have this tonight, forget about what I said in the Iraq war thread
Curry for tea
Beans on toast for breakfast tomorrow
horse tikka masala no doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!
poppadom n mango chutney
Fuck the rice.
making it a regular choice is really unhealthy and you will die soon, however.
desi downtown in nottingham does a good un.
Lamb chops to start
Lamb Jaipuri (if available - Lamb Madras if not)
+ Garlic Naan
+ Mushroom Bhaji
+ Cucumber Raita
(+ one of their Paneer sides if I'm REALLY hungry)
I want all of this. Right now.
Portion of saag aloo
Couple of poppadoms
but because Of my Crohn's I have to keep things much more plain :(
Chicken Shashlik/Lamb Gosht (if I'm feeling pathetic I'll even have a Korma :/ )
(but my choice changes quite a bit)
Sometimes lamb saagwala or pilau rice with keema naan. Hungry now.
people who don't share their curry are cunts. every should buy a curry and then every should have a bit of everyone else's curry. whether you're in a group of 2 or 10. doesn't matter.
usually if i'm with vegetarian pals it's alright, but when someone tries to eat half of mine and then offers me a bit of chicken korma? NAH FUCK OFF.
i really like you as well! but i don't think we can ever eat curry together :(
i just don't eat meat and theres been a few occassaions where LETS SHARE meat eaters have nicked half of mine and i've not had as much delicious curry as i would like. i'll happily share and eat every single type of curry if they're just vegetables though.
lets just get chips.
i'll get aloo saag and you can have half
NOT A THING
does everyone else all order the same thing :(
4 chicken madras and a lamb karahi please
i feel for you. i would just not go.
Chicken Jalfrazi, but recently I've been mixing it up. Danzak is a good one. With lentils.
I'M SO FUCKING HUNGRY.
Chicken dupiaza, dhansak, korai or pathia
Butter chicken or chicken Sri Lanka
That yellow sauce stuff
Fuck me I want a curry.
it's the best
It's ++++++ better than any yellow stuff I've ever had.
Or do you guys get some sort of fucked up shit I've never seen?
then I had atrocious shits from it once and haven't touched them since (from a curry house anyway). Our local does mutton instead of lamb - I think it is just being honest rather than claiming they use lamb - so I get mutton madras, plain rice, plain naan, sag aloo, mango chutney, mint sauce and poppadoms. The mint sauce is the yellow stuff alluded to in the posts above. Plain rice as it is slightly cheaper than pilau and I fail to see the point in pilauing your rice. You get a few red grains and a few yellow grains of rice (or all yellow) and a bit of grease thrown in along with the odd cardomom pod or clove. Otherwise it is the same. You get enough flavour from the curry I reckon.
lamb tandoori main (to share as a starter)
chicken tikka bhuna (though I mix it up, this is my current favourite)
pilau rice (we tend to make our own rice now though to save £4)
Hopefully get free poppadoms with raita and chopped up raw onion.
We've been using Qumin a lot recently because it seems to constantly have a 20% off offer on justeat.
Have you been to Chennai Dosa? Our South Indian friend recommended it to us and it's lush, can be quite hot though!
I wanna go for a buffet there again really soon!
When it was up by Whitley Street I'd walk past it every day and be so tempted to have it on the way home from work.
Genuinely amazing South Indian food. Super authentic and very different. Oh my god the dosas.
Was good but took AGGGGES.
I think I've had a curry from Guru once.
Mushroom and bhindi bhajis are far superior.
but only if they organise for something to clean my butthole afterwards
You get the naan in your hand and you use it as a scoop for the curry and then you squish some onion bhaji on top - insert into (and around) mouth.
need to rectify this
Egg fried rice
Poached egg on the side
Onion bhajis (at least four of them)
2x Cobra or Kingfisher
Jug of water
...it's usually (to share, obviously):
baby pumpkin curry
another meat curry
some other stuff
the lamb chops go a bit shit when you get delivery/takeaway? They're never as nice.
Chicken chilli masala
Spicy pilau rice
Why on earth do people think its a good idea to share each others curries? If you want more than one, buy more than one.
- Just popping in here to get some chips, do you want any?
- No, thanks. I'm not hungry/on a diet/don't eat that crap.
- You SURE?!
- Yeah, yeah.
- You're not going to ask for some of mine if I don't get you anything, are you?
- No, definitely not, just get your chips.
Five minutes later:
- Can I have a chip?
- FOR FUCK'S SAKE.
And in another five minutes, half your chips are gone and you don't feel hungry.
It was my friends birthday, so we went to this swanky South Indian restaurant in covent garden. I live my friends mrs dearly but she does have a te fancy to be a bit awkward.
We are all about to order when she makes the suggestion that we all order a dish and share. My heart sinks, but not wanting to be a stick in the mud, I go along with it.
It turned out that you could either have one set vegetarian meal and one set non vegetarian meal, so rather than just order our own food (which everyone else wanted to do) we carried on with the sharing idea, but getting half veg and half non veg set meals.
It ended up with us - in some cases - sharing the same piece of food. Yeah, nothing really wrong with that, just fucking annoying, that's all.
Think that's about it.
I'm all for sharing wealth and stuff, but when it comes to takeouts/restaurants, imposing sharing on others is bad. You might think you're being all happy-clappy but YOU'RE RUINING MY SODDING MEAL.
As you can see it's an issue rather close to my heart.
but if I get a takeaway from my localest local normally saag paneer, mushroom bhaji, vegetable korma, one chapati and maybe a couple of onion bhajis. Make the rice myself. Cheers.
Pilau + chapati, between two.
Maybe a chana daal or something similar to share around for good measure.
Veg pakora + onion bhaji between two.
Massive naan bread
Few poppadoms with mint sauce to start
Poppadoms are free.
About £11 I think. Powerful.
