DROP-IN DINNER: Classic Indian with a Twist by Ridhima Kalra & Frishta Ghafoori

March 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Two friends and passionate cooks join forces on a menu of Indian dishes with a modern twist. From classic street snacks to comfort food favourites, these popular Indian dishes are given a fun, contemporary makeover for a fresh new spin on traditional flavours.

Chaat in a Tart $7 (3 pcs)
The quintessential Indian street snack — chaat — reimagined as a cute little tartlet. A crispy tart shell is layered with potatoes, onions, cucumber with cilantro and tamarind chutney, then liberally topped with crispy sev noodles and garnished with lime and pomegranate seeds. The combination of crispy, crunchy, spicy, and tangy is downright addictive!

Butter Chicken Meatballs $14
Could a comfort-food classic like butter chicken get even better? They’ve taken it for a new spin by serving the classic creamy curried tomato gravy with tender, delicately spiced chicken meatballs.

Also available #vegan with tasty vegetable kofta (mince potato, peas, carrots, and cauliflower) dipped in the a smooth tomato sauce made creamy with almond milk; both are served with saffron rice and a kachumber salad of fresh chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, coriander, and lemon juice.

Caramel Kheer $7
Kheer is a traditional Indian rice pudding, where milk, rice, nuts sugar and spices are slow cooked for hours until luscious and creamy. We’ve added an a extra layer of caramel to make it even more amazing!

Prix Fixe Menu $25
chaat + main + dessert
