Now, I’m not an expert of Indian food. I just like eating it.
So here are 3 places and 11 dishes you need to check out the next time you’re having Indian food.
Here are all the details:
28 Station St, Wentworthville
Desizz restaurant in Wentworthville specialises in Indian street eats that are hard to find in many other Indian restaurants.
But they also offer a range of other dishes.
I got myself a few things. First up is Pani Puri, round hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water, tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion or chickpeas.
Very refreshing and appetising to eat.
Then I got, Dosa. A crisp Crepe made from rice and black gram topped with Pav Bhaji Masala – served with Chutney and Sambar.
A really enjoyable meal that’s full of flavour.
Lastly, the chicken Biryani, Dum Style Hyderabadi biryani cooked with tender Chicken.
Desizz has a wide range of different biryanis you can try out.
Chatkazz Harris Park
Shop 4-6/14-20 Station St E, Harris Park
Chatkazz Harris Park is only steps away from the train station. A casual family friendly restaurant serving an extensive menu of delicious Indian food.
I tried so many things here because the menu was so huge.
First up, I ordered the cheese Pav-Bhaji. A spicy vegetable curry topped with cheese & served with toasted buttered bread roll, onion salad & papadam.
This vegetable curry has a very strong tomato base to it, which makes it seriously appetising. The cheese goes perfectly with it. Honestly, I wouldn’t even think this was a curry if you didn’t tell me.
Next, I got Chhole Tikki. A fried potato cutlet topped with chickpeas curry, served with chilled yoghurt and various chutneys.
This is a extremely saucy dish that you might initially be wondering where is the carbs to dip it in. However I was told you eat it as is. Its an extremely flavourful and filling dish that I think would be perfect in winter.
Then we have a Dahi Vada (Dahi Bhalla). Lentil doughnut soaked in sweet chilled yoghurt, served with various chutneys and topped with herbs & spices.
The lentil donut had the consistency similar to bread. The flavours are mostly from the chilled yoghurt and the various spices and herbs on top.
Another hardy dish that will fill you up.
I finished my visit off by getting their Jini Dosa. A very luxurious spread of cheese filled dosa and chutneys.
Ginger Indian Restaurant
94 Wigram St, Harris Park
Another place located in Harris Park is Ginger Indian Restaurant. They specialise in North Indian cuisine which is home to such dishes like Butter Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala.
You might miss it if you don’t look for the blue sign since this small quiet restaurant is situation in a small cottage with a cute white picket fence.
I got 4 different dishes, a started, 1 mains and 2 dessert.
So first up, is the famous samosas. Peas and spices wrapped in crispy pastry.
These were amazing. The pastry skin was crispy and the filling for so well seasoned and flavourful.
Next up is Murgh Makhni (Butter Chicken) & Naan Chicken Thigh fillets cooked in tandoor are simmered with grounded cashew, tomato, cream and flavoured with fenugreek.
Creamy, melt-in-your-mouth chicken in an indulgently delicious sauce. My absolute favourite, highly recommend it. (It’s seriously good guys.)
After that we have Galab jamun. Soft round deep fried balls of cottage cheese and flour soaked in sugar syrup.
Lastly, a pistachio Kulfi Similar to ice cream in appearance and taste, but is denser and creamier.
