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 🙂

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

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.

Rishis Indian Aroma Restaurant (Review) : Review

Visit Date : Saturday 18th June 2016

Currently before trying here there was one Indian restaurant in Glasgow that I would recommend (Not tried them all yet, but a good amount). Rishi’s is now on my list as I really enjoyed it.

This visit was a special visit as it was an early birthday dinner for my friend, and Rishi’s was also recommended by our Indian friends as they found it very close to the way it should be.

Normally when I go out I stick to ordering the same things, but now I am trying different items and thats what I did here.

Starter :

There was a lot on the menu for my starter that I would have tried but I opted for the Methu Vadai.

Methu Vadai : Fried doughnuts made of urid dal, ginger, onion, curry leaves & green chilly with a soft centre & crunchy exterior, served with special chutneys & Sambar*

These were nice, and I am glad I tried them. After you have had one, the sauces are needed to add a little more flavour but this could just me and my sweet tooth. One of my friends ordered the Dosa which looked really nice, and I tried a little and I would try this next time.

Chicken Chettinad with Coconut rice : A spicy Chettinad preparation, combining Ground coconut, curry leaves, fennel and seasame seeds. (spicy)

I was worried about ordering this since it said “spicy” as I am ok with just spicy and no more, and my normal dish is a korma. I found this very nice, and yes it was spicy but it wasn’t over powering I lost all sensation.

Would I order this again…not sure as there was just a taste in it i wasn’t sure off, but now since I am doing more blogging I would try something else and review that.

Dessert :

Gulab Jamun : Fried dough soaked in sugar syrup.

This is my favourite to order anytime I go to an Indian restaurant, it’s a shame that you only get two balls as I could easy eat double that as its too nice….more so if you have a sweet tooth like me.

Overall :

There were 5 of us this day, and I was pleasantly shocked at the cost of the bill as I found them to very very reasonably priced. Normally what we paid for 5 is what I pay when its just 2.

If you like Indian food, and have not tried here please do as my first visit I was very impressed and will be going back.
