๐Ÿ”†Little Indian plates ๐Ÿ”†

As promised, I’ve been to quite a few places over the weekend for my birthday and the one that really stood out for me was Zumbura, in Clapham Common. No, not fitness Zumba, the place is called zum-bu-ra. However, I do want to try Zumba one day. 

Anyway, this restaurant was a selection of small Indian plates. Great for sharing and all pretty reasonably priced. 

Starters we had: 

  • Pakora (spinach and onion chick pea flour fritters)
  • Samosas (homemade crispy pastry triangles with spiced mince)
  • Chaat (yoghurt with crisp breads)

Mains we had: 

  • dopiaza gosht (beef curry in a rich onion sauce with whole spices)
  • kullia (lamb and turnip aromatic stew, slow cooked on the bone for a full meaty smoky flavour)
  • kofte (beef meatballs stuffed with herbs in a rich velvety sauce)
  • murghi ka salan (home-style chicken curry cooked on the bone for a rich sauce)
  • hari murghi (chicken marinated in fresh herbs and yoghurt overnight and then roasted)
  • braised chopped okra
  • daal (lentils with curry leaves and garlic dressing)
  • bread selection 
  • muttar pulao (braised rice with peas and spices) 

Seems like a lot but it was a perfect amount for five people. 

(I promise I’ll attempt to make my own version very soon which you can all try) 
Happy Indian dreaming ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ
