Curious Table serves you this week a smooth and creamy Indian Butter Chicken with Basmati rice, a Raita-style green salad with creamy yogurt dressing on the side, an Earl Grey mango chutney, and fresh-baked naan with garlic-paneer cheese spread! Vegetarian mushroom, dairy-free and gluten-free options available.
Butter Chicken is a classic Indian dish characterized by its smooth & creamy turmeric-tinted sauce of tomatoes, onions and a bevy of curry spices. This Curious Dish originated in New Delhi, India at the Moti Mahal restaurant in 1947, and has become a global favorite.
With over 300 widely-spoken languages, 2,000+ ethnic groups, and strong English & French colonial influences, Indian cuisine is the original definition of "fusion cooking."
The word "chutney" derives from the Hindi word "caṭnī," meaning "to lick" or "to eat with appetite." Traditional chutneys preserve tart fruits with an equal amount of jaggery - a hard Indian sweetener that tastes similar to molasses, often including mustard oil or vinegar to pickle the fruit. Earl Grey tea leaves with pickled mango is the classic chutney used in this week's dish.
This Curious Table meal is a comforting celebration of bright & savory flavors just like its country of origin--curry, tomatoes, onions, fragrant rice, paneer cheese with garlic & ginger, Earl Grey tea and mango. This dinner is designed to remind us of the mutual joy we experience when we bring our own unique diversity around the table to share good food together.
