Jaisalmer Palace Indian Restaurant, CBD

·       Pakora Punjabi – vegetables battered with chickpea flour and spices and deep fried ($8.00)
      ·       Garlic and Chilli Prawns – large prawns cooked with garlic, onions and chillies with a touch of lemon ($20.50)
·       Mushroom Curry – peas and mushrooms cooked in an exotic gravy ($12.50)
·       Gulab Jamun – milk dumpling in sugar syrup ($6.00)

We picked two entrées to start with. The ‘Aloo Dil Bahar – mashed spicy potatoes with green peas, dipped in chickpea batter and deep fried ($8.00)’ was our favourite entrée out of the two. The two patties were bursting with flavour and we were hesitant to share as they were brilliant.

A half serve of the ‘Murgh Tandoor – spring chicken marinated overnight with Indian spices and roasted in the clay oven ($10.00)’ was also good but the chicken was a little dry.

Obviously my dining companion and I were channelling Popeye that day and we both chose spinach based curries! I opted for the vegetarian option of ‘Palak Paneer – cottage cheese cooked with spinach ($12.50)’. I thought this was a great version of this curry. My dining companion picked the ‘Saag Gosht – lamb cooked with creamy fresh spinach ($16.00)’ for their main. The lamb was tender and was complemented by the spinach curry.

We also ordered some ‘Garlic Naan ($3.50)’ which was fabulous and some ‘Coconut Pulao – Basmati rice with coconut and a touch of lemon ($6.00)’.

I decided to have a beer with my curry thus ordered a Kingfisher Beer...

My dining companion chose a Mango Lassi ($4.50) which he enjoyed.

Zomato were kind enough to send me a voucher for Jaisalmer Palace Indian Restaurant which I was eager to try. We received wonderful service during our visit and the staff were very knowledgeable about the dishes and keen to help us with our selection. It was a cosy refuge in the CBD on a rainy Melbourne day.
