Masala on the Mile

Enjoying a privileged location in the heart of the Golden Mile, Masala is just one of the chain of high-quality Indian eateries from the Masala group. You’

We started with a tandoori mushroom, which had been cooked to a delicate consistency in the tandoor oven and was delicately accompanied by a light yoghurt raita. I would combine raita with almost everything on the menu if I could; it´s beautifully fresh and cooling taste always brings the best out of the spice and strength of the base flavours of Indian cooking.

We were also offered a prawn puri as a starter. Lightly spiced prawns in a fresh coriander-based paste were served on a soft puri bread; the soft flavours here were the perfect way to start our journey of spice with just enough subtlety that left us wanting to continue.

The main event followed and we were lucky enough to try a vast combination of chicken dishes. Perennial favourites korma and tikka masala were cooked to perfection and could also be served with lamb or vegetable for a bit of variety. Veering off the beaten track, we sampled a banno kebab containing succulent chicken pieces covered with the wonderful cheese-based paneer and marinated in yoghurt and special herbs, perfect for those with more of a heat-shy palate.The highlight for me was the garlic chilli chicken, which had been battered in garbanzo flour and cooked with garlic and sweet chilli sauce to create a strong but well balanced dish that was hearty and satisfying, All of this was accompanied with some beautiful kulcha onion bread, a great alternative to the sometimes Naan-bread and a perfect way to mop up the amazing amalgamation of different curry sauces.

Finally we cleansed our palates with some pistachio kulfi; the Indian version of ice cream, that had been given some extra zing with a liberal dash of fresh ginger and was the ideal way to digest and freshen up after such a heady of mice of spice and aroma.
