Butter Tandoori Chicken – Big Belly Canteen

@Big Belly Canteen

So Dimple had given me advance notice of sambar dosa being tonight’s dinner, and the 50% Punjabi in me had made plans for an after dinner snack because I knew sambar dosa would not suffice.

Called up my dear friend Jitin Ahuja yesterday itself and requested that he make something that wasn’t on the menu yet. He offered to make Butter Tandoori Chicken, and I agreed without hesitation.

The dish arrived within 30 minutes of placing the order. The food was piping hot, two neatly packed boxes containing four pieces each.

Butter Tandoori Chicken is different from the regular variant in the sense that after the chicken’s stay in the tandoor, it is literally bathed in a gravy of cashews, curd, butter and other spices. One bite of the chicken and I knew I was going to love it, and I did. The chicken was perfectly marinated and cooked. Mildly spiced chicken served perfectly. Even my 7 yo who isn’t that fond of chicken gorged on it.

All in all, a satisfying meal. Sorry for the bad picture quality, don’t have the patience to click pictures.

Price is Rs, 509 for the full portion, sufficient for 2.5 pax.

Edit: The remaining 50% is pure Managalorean Saraswat Brahman
