Swadish 5 Course Heat and Eat meal for 2 (Glasgow, Merchant City) : Review

GIFTED

Swadish is back woohoo!!!

I have been keeping an eye on when Swadish were going to do a takeaway, and they are now doing a great one.⠀

They gifted me a 5-course Heat and Eat for 2 meal, and I couldn’t wait to dig in and start eating.⠀

With the takeaway you get instructions on how to heat each item, and for how long so that they taste great.

Nibbles

POPPADOMS

These poppadoms were lovely and crispy, and had a great flavour.

They worked extremely well with the dips and spiced onions.⠀

Crispy Battered Kale

Wow now this was my first time trying Kale, and I think I am in love.

This was so nice and super moreish.⠀

I cant wait to get this again.

Spiced Onions

You can’t go wrong with spiced onions, these were mega YUM!!!!!⠀

Starters

Tomato Shorba (Soup)

I am not a soup fan, but wow this was very tasty, really nice flavours….and if you normally don’t like tomato soup you would love this.⠀

Chicken Chat (Wings)

The chicken meat was very tender, and had a nice flavour….finger licking good as they say.

Onion & Potato Bhaji 

I am becoming a big fan of Onion Bahji and mmmm these were so so so so good!!!!!!!!

Main Course

As you have seen from above the starters were supper mouth wattering

I couldn’t wait to dig in to the mains, as they all looked and smelled amazing.

Chicken Tikka Masala

The chicken was very tender, and melted in my mouth.

The sauce was nice and creamy and had an amazing flavour.

Lamb Karahi

I am not a massive Lamb fan, its something I have to be in the mood for but I opted for this dish to see what it was like.

I am now converted, the lamb was tender, and again another amazing flavour.

Delhis Chaana Masala

This had a nice little kick to it, but the sauce was very creamy, and overall again another really nice tasty dish.

Pilau Rice

The rice was nice fluffy and is the perfect accompaniment for an Indian main.

Plain Naan

Fluffy and very nice, naans are ideal served as a side dish to your favourite curry.

Desert :

Yup and theres more…

Gulab Jamun

This is a big fav of mine, as its something I ALWAYS order and mmmm so good.

I could have easily had many many more of these 🙂

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the Heat and Eat from Swadish.

Firstly a big thanks to Swadish for making my Saturday evening special.

The food tonight was amazing, and that is really the only way to describe the food.

Everything was cooked to perfection, had amazing flavours and mega moreish.

I have been to Swadish a few times, and plan on visiting again when I can. I can honestly say the food, service etc was perfect.

If you want to taste how good Swadish food is then follow them on Instagram, Facebook etc and send them a message. The Heat and Eat platters are going fast, so you need to get your order in or you will need to wait till next weeks.

An attempt at Chef Ajay Kumar (Swadish Restaurant) Tandoori Chicken Tikka Recipe

I thought since the first time went ok, let’s try another recipe from Chef Ajay’s YouTube channel.

This time round my fiancee and I decided to try the Tandoori Chicken Tikka, so we had to watch make sure we had everything (a quick trip to Tesco was needed) and then setup and get ready to watch and prepare at the same time as the video.

We watched the first part of the video and left the marinated chicken for 24 hours, as we wanted it to be nice and tender.

Since we didn’t have a Tandoor in the flat, we opted for the oven and actually left it for 40mins which for us was perfect.

This was our finished attempt.

From start to finish this smelled really good, and also tasted really good.

The final result was AMAZING!! for me the chicken had the perfect flavour and was very light. I had loads this night, and didn’t feel that bloated way after it all.

An attempt at Chef Ajay Kumar (Swadish Restaurant) Dal Tadka

Chef Ajay Kumar

One of my fav Indian restaurant’s in Glasgow is Swadish.

You can see my blogs and vlogs from some of my visits, by typing Swadish in the search box on my blog.

Like most people who are currently at home due to the pandemic, my fiancee and I decided to start trying to make some dishes at home.

Chef Ajay recently started a YouTube channel and we thought let’s see what we could try, and if we have all or most of the ingredients in the flat.

We decided to try the Dal Tadka or Dhal.

Dal tadka (dhal)

So we slowly watched and started preparing and following the video!

A few of the items that Ajay was using we didn’t have in the kitchen, but we had alternatives that we decided to use.

We didn’t have cumin seeds but we had grounded cumin , and we didn’t have curry leaves so we used grounded curry powder.

Following Ajay’s video we found it very easy to follow and the smell from start to finish was amazing, we both couldn’t wait to try it 🙂

This was our finished attempt.

As you can see its….kind of close…but it did taste very very good.

We both want to try this again, and know how we could improve what we did so our next attempt will be closer to Chef Ajay’s version…..well thats the aim 🙂

For a first attempt we were very happy with our result, and as I said we know what we need to do to improve on what we did this time for next time.

Please do try this, as its a very nice dish and very tasty 🙂
