Rishis Indian Aroma (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

The last time I was here was 5 years ago and I had wanted to visit again sooner but things got in the way.

Tonight’s visit we selected after coming back from a lovely day in Edinburgh.

The Food

Tonight I was with a friend who was from Kerala, I said to her to help me pick something I have not tried before and this is what I got.

Methu Vadai £4.50
South Indian savoury snack, made of urid dhal, spiced with onion, ginger, green chilly and curry leaves, served with sambar and chutney.

Ohh now this looked interesting…they looked like doughnuts…

Now it was time to try….ohhh this was very nice…

It was light, puffy and had a nice flavour…I then dipped it in the chutney and again it was nice….then the sambar and ohh…I loved it with the sambar!!!

This was a very nice starter and I could easily have this again….more so with the sambar mmm that is so nice 🙂

Main

Kothu Parotta (Chicken) £8.95
popular Tamil Nadu street food where flaky shredded flatbreads are cooked in a spicy curry masala

I have never heard of this dish before, so I was looking forward to finding out what it was like.

I took a small bite to begin with just in case it was too spicy…as I am not good with too spicy

This was not spicy and it was so so so tasty!!!

The textures, the flavours everything was very very yummy!

This was a big portion and probably better off as a sharing one or if you are MEGA hungry!

I will be getting this again as I really loved this!!

Mango Lassi (Large) £3.70

If you dont know me by now, I always get a Mango Lassi when I go to an Indian restaurant.

This was very nice and very yummy and I could have easily had more and more of these.

If you fancy trying to make a Mango Lassi at home do check out my recipe here

Overall :

This was such a good day and a good end to the night.

I was so happy to come back to Rishi’s as tonight’s food was amazing! and I tried 2 new dishes that I will easily have again and highly recommend you try if you haven’t had them yet.

I am adding here to my top Restaurants list.

Swadish Indian Restaurant (Merchant City, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

V: 31st December 2021


The Visit :

It was a very last-minute decision as my parents wanted to go out for dinner and they didn’t book anywhere, so I messaged Swadish and was lucky they had a table free.

Starter

Hot Cauliflower Wings (Vegan) £6.50
Crispy Cauliflower with Tandoori Spices, Lime and Chilli Sauce, Coriander Chutney

I am not normally a Cauliflower fan, it’s probably one of the last things I would order but a friend was here the night before and had this and said it was really good…so I ordered it.

I didn’t actually look at the small print and tried a good amount of the darker sauce and WOW it blew my head off….so once that calmed down I dug right in.

These were really nice, I was very surprised (remember I am not a cauliflower person) and I enjoyed them very much. They had a lovely flavour and a really nice crisp to them.

Main

Salmon Tikka £10
Roasted Salmon marinated with Lime, Paprika, Tandoori spices, Lime Leaf Sauce, Mint and Coriander Chutney, Beetroot Dressing. and a hint of sweetness. Onions and coconut

I wanted to try something different tonight, and this cause my eye.

On arrival, the presentation was really good and defiantly Instagramable!

Visually looked really good, and it also smelled really good….so it was time to dig in.

Wow, this was very tender, no bones and packed with a lovely flavour. I could have easily had another plate of this that’s how good it was.

Warm Gulab Jamun £6.00
Sweet spongy balls made of milk, topped with berry compote

Woohoo, I had room to have this, and Gulab Jamun is one of my favourite Indian sweets more so warm.

It was yummy, soft, sweet and so so good!!!

This is another dish I could have easily had more of.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall:

It was nice to be back at Swadish, and it was a love New Years eve meal.

As always the food, presentation and flavours are 10/10 and we all had a fantastic meal.

If you have never visited here, I highly recommend you do!!!

Chaiiwala (Glasgow Springfield Quay) 2021 : Review

The Visit

As you may have seen I was recently invited to Chaiiwala Glasgow to come and try some of their food, and I had a very good experience.

I always like to visit again t see if this new visit is up to the same standard as when I got invited…was it? read on.

The Food

At my previous visit I had spotted a few dishes I would like to try on my return visit, so that’s exactly what I ordered.

Butter chicken Roll (Roti) £2.60
succulent shredded masala butter chicken in a classic roti

I wanted to try this last time, but the Kebab Roti was recommended.

On arrival this smelled very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig in as I was very hungry.

Ohh this was good! the chicken was tender and the flavour of the butter chicken was so good.

I enjoyed every single bite.

Samosa Cone £3.60
five of our fresh best crispy vegetable samosas served with Chaiiwala chutney dip

Another dish I wanted to try last time was this, so tonight I did and I am very glad I did.

These were light, crispy and packed with flavour and very moreish.

I even dipped it in the additional chutney dip and it just added to the already lovely flavour.

Mint Chocolate Chaii (Large) £3.05

I saw this advertised on Chaiiwala’s instagram and had to try it tonight.

This was so so tasty! the mint chocolate chip flavour was perfect, not too strong or too sweet.

This was so good I had two tonight and will get this again on my next visit.

Thought this is a limited edition just for winter so check it out before its too late.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Along with my mint chocolate chip chai I ordered this as it would have been rude not to.

This is exactly as you would expect, it was sweet, minty, chocolatey goodness! and I loved every bite.
