I think I've discovered the best butter chicken in Delhi.

It's from this place called Kay's in Pitampura. GP have you tried it?

It's 6 am and I'm still stuffed!

Have tried the kababs from there. They were good.

Butter chicken looks good BB!

Last night I made (using me zero calorie noodles) a beef and coconut noodle soup with egg, chilli oil and sugarsnap peas.

One piece of chicken in a sea of butter curry.
(You might have guessed, I do not like butter chicken)
यो वै स धर्मः सत्यं वै तत् तस्मात्सत्यं वदन्तमाहुर् धर्मं वदतीति धर्मं वा वदन्तँ सत्यं वदतीत्य् एतद्ध्येवैतदुभयं भवति ll
Truly that Dharma is the Truth (Satya); Therefore, when a man speaks the Truth, they say, "He speaks the Dharma"; and if he speaks Dharma, they say, "He speaks the Truth!" For both are one. - Brihadaranyak Upanishad

I am sure it would have been nice but I feel Salmon is too delicate to be made into a tikka .


IMHO Salmon does'nt mix with masala . It's an extremely delicate fish. Much better without the masala in a smoked form or baked with a bit of salt and some pepper.

If its frozen /slightly older salmon then maybe its okay.

A salmon tikka is like Nicole Kidman trying to play the role of Mother India .

Now if its a cod tikka I'll be first in the queue..

Ha! We will have to agree to disagree on this one. Salmon is most definitely not a delicate fish (if you were talking about flounder or sole I would be with you 100%) and is one of the most versatile fish when it comes to marinading and versatile cooking (miso, soy ginger, honey glaze, tikka). Add to that itís flavour and texture is closest to trout which is used for tikka and masala based dishes along the beas river Iíd say itís a good match!

For me how well it works is based on two things:

Proper marination (the flavours need to truly permeate overnight to soften the flesh and prevent a two tone flavour I.e Tikka outside v salmon inside). It should taste the same all the way through.

The masala is the second. It canít be as robust as what you may use on other proteins, so slightly dialled down and it should be applied sparingly so you get small pockets of char and not an overpowering thick coating like you get in some places.

Each to their own!
