Best Indian dishes in 2021 Monsoon Stillorgan, Dublin

The best way to experience India is by exploring its food which is much more than your local Indian takeaway. Indian food carries the impression of geography, local custom, tradition, beliefs and religious ideology.  A curry can tell which part of India it comes from, why it is the way it is. 

Spice is a crucial part of Indian cooking. Spices can transform the simplest of food into a delicious gastronomic experience. From Goan chillies to cumin flavoured curries from Gujrat and Rajasthan, each spice when used in the right combination can create magic. 

So forget “Tikka Masala and Kormas” here is a list of “The 15 Best Indian curries from us to try in 2021”.


Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken is a tangy and spicy chicken curry that is decadent and full of flavour. It is a typical North Indian dish with roots in “Moti Mahal restaurant ” (Daryaganj, Delhi). But there are many stories as many have claimed to have created this landmark dish. We at Monsoon try to recreate those same ago old flavours with commitment so when you order Butter Chicken from us, you could enjoy the tradition and passion that has made this dish the Iconic dish of India.

 


Mango Prawn

Our Mango Prawn Curry is a long-established dish from Kerala, “it has the delicious flavour of ripe mangoes and prawns cooked in creamy coconut Velouté – the mangoes are the highlight of this dish as they add such a distinctive and tangy flavour to it. This dish will add a little sunshine to your day, no matter what the time of year.


Idli With Sambar

Idli and Sambar are the combinations meant for each other. A well-known delicacy served on South-Indian breakfast tables as families unite; it has its origins embedded in Indonesian cuisine too. The word Idli is derived from the Indonesian ‘Kidli’ for similar steamed cakes. Given the links between south Asian traders and rulers, the recipe has now become a permanent part of traditional south-Indian cuisine.

Idli, the soft steamed rice cakes are served with our special, house-made sambar. Sambar is a curry made with fresh lentils and fresh vegetables; a handful of aromatic spices and herbs makes this lentil-veggie curry extra savoury. Adding more bounty to this south-Indian pleasure is our enticing coconut chutney.


Goan Meatball Curry

One of our treasured memories in India is the moreish taste of the famous Goan Sauce. Goan cuisine belongs to the picturesque south-western Indian coastal state of Goa. Goa is known for its romantic views of the endless expanse of the Arabian Sea, its crystal-clear beaches, beautiful villages that dot the landscape, glorious sunsets and its delicious Goan food.

Our Goan Meat Ball curry bears the character of this lovely place, it’s full of wonderful spiced flavour, in a creamy coconut sauce with a slight tang from the Vinegar.


Dosa

South Indian cuisine has so much variety when it comes to pancakes. One of them is the ultra-famous, also a loved-street food bread called ‘Dosa’. These are incredibly smooth; crepe-like bread made with fermented lentil and rice batter and served with tasty Sambar curries, coconut chutneys, and Indian pickles. 

In traditional south Indian cuisine, dosa has been one of the oldest recipes and has been a common part of the south Indian diet for centuries. According to historians, dosa was consumed even in the ancient Tamil country around the 1st century AD. Originally the Tamil word known as the Dosai or Thosai, it was Anglicized to ‘Dosa’ by British Invaders. Today, it keeps its place as the most popular crepes, making it one of the highly sought-after Indian delicacies around the world. Served in various forms, it has evolved to gigantic sizes and is now commonly fused with European and Chinese dishes. 


Malai Kofta

Delicious Koftas dunked in an aromatic and savoury curry. The Malai koftas are prepared with mashed potatoes, cottage cheese, chopped cashew nuts and golden raisins mixed in tons of fragrant spice, then shaped into balls and fried in hot oil. These are served with our flavorful veg curry prepared with utmost love and selected ingredients to amplify the kofta experience!

It combines the most flavorful and fresh ingredients like beans, chopped carrots and cabbage, sauteed in the fragrant and spicy coconut mix and aromatic curry leaves.


Nilgiri Chicken

Nilgiri, which means the ‘blue mountain’ is a charming mountain range in western Ghats of south India. Inspired by the soul of the breathtaking beauty of the Nilgiri mountains, we present to you ‘Nilgiri Chicken’.

This delicious dish has morsels of chicken stewed in a thick home-made green pesto infused with coconut milk and aromatic spices, creating a luscious gravy that symbolises the beauty and spice of the highlands of south India.


Vegan Vegetable Korma

Veg Korma is every vegan’s dream dish. This savoury and colourful curry has a rich and creamy sauce, prepared with tempered spices and freshly chopped veggies. In south India, Veg korma is a staple curry, cherished on family tables usually served on a thali with other south-Indian components.

Keema is a versatile dish it’s eaten as a starter, main or snack. In India, it’s often used as the main ingredient to many dishes, sometimes as an ingenuous stuffings in paranthas (Indian flatbread) to famous kebabs sold as a street dish and cooked on Tawa (a large iron griddle) with well distinguishable taka-tak sound.


Pav Bhaji

In hard times of struggle, we stand together with our local community. As a token of appreciation for our health-workers who are standing in the frontline against Covid-19 putting their own health at risk, we made a small contribution to St.Vincent’s University Hospital through a campaign called @feedtheheroesire . We are deeply thankful to @dublingazette for appreciating what little we could do for our heroes.

Besides that, we dedicate this post to the campaign through which you can make any contribution possible. Again, we truly value everyone who is working hard to keep the situation controlled.
