Anglo Indian at Chijmes offers a good range of North Indian, Desi-Chinese (Sino-Ludhianvi cooking) and Anglo-Indian dishes.
Mango lassi - the rendition here was near-perfect. A good start.
Lamb Seekh Kebabs - very respectable rendition. Does not approach the excellence of those one gets in Northern India or Pakistan, but very good by Singapore standards.
Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani) - I’ve come across many excellent versions in Singapore, and this one here is up there with the best of them. Well-balanced flavours, and chicken were cooked perfectly.
Gobi Manchurian - ordering this dish was a BIG mistake It was one of the signature Indian-style “Chinese” dishes very popular in India: batter-coated, deep-fried cauliflower covered with a spicy sauce. We didn’t quite take to it, either in terms of flavours and texture.
Yellow daal. Very good - slow-cooked, yielding smooth, earthy buttery-rich flavours.
Kashmiri Naan - I loved this to bits: naan filled with colourful chopped candied fruits. This is pretty common in Singapore, but which I am hardpressed to find in India or Pakistan, where their version, the Peshawri Naan, had miserly fruit stuffing.
My go-to spot for a spice fix if I’m in Chijmes.
