Basmati rice with four curries !
Well, let me continue the sequel of last post “Autumn flavor at NICO, Indian foods bar (Kiyosumi-shirakawa) 1/2”
Our tandoori dish was ….
Tandoori bonito tataki (タンドール鰹たたき)
The chef told about the dish on the twitter the other day and I wanted to eat it 😀 I was glad to eat it !
The slices of bonito was cooked as tataki, so those were medium rare. Mint chutney added those bonito more flavor and it was so tasty.
Then, I ordered a lassie (400 yen) for curries 🙂
The rice came. Of course it was basmati rice !
The basmati rice was so soft. We asked her how she cook the basmati rice.
She said, “My rice cooker works very well :D”
I heard that it is hard to cook basmati rice by home rice cooker, umm. No doubt She use good business rice cooker 🙂
By the way, basmati rice is so expensive because it is dutiable 🙁
The chef served us every kinds of curries that she prepared that day.
Green chili and shrimps curry Southern Indian style (青唐辛子と海老の南インドカレー)
It had springy shrimps ! and gree chili !
I like rasam best all the same !
The ingredients were autumn eggplant,peanuts and lily bulb.
Black pepper chicken Southern Indian style (ブラックペッパルチキン南インドカレー)
Spicy curry as its name !
Saury pulus (さんまプルス)
Wooow, I felt Autumn very much !
Last, Dal and chesnuts Nankin (ダル栗なんきん) came. It was also a curry, but it had sweetness of chesnuts and tasty. It tasted like dessert !
It was similar to “Kuri Kinton” (mashed sweet potatoes with sweetened chestnuts)
Saury, chesnuts, autumn eggplant… we enjoyed autumn flavor a lot 🙂
Though I had thought we can feel four seasons only by Japanese foods. But I found it doesn’t !
