Last night I had the pleasure of attending the soft opening for India Twist, the newest venue from JAM Culinary Concepts.
Located at the sight of the short-lived Twisted Tandoor, India Twist has a Sikh chef who makes dishes of New Delhi and environs.
We ordered the cauliflower patties, tandoori fish and the butter chicken, which we were told is the recipe of the man who invented bitter chicken.
Everything we had was fab!
For me to it cauliflower there has to be something special about the white veggie. Here, the florets were dusted with a spicy breading and deep fried. The cauliflower was like butter and the breading popped with heat.
The white fish was juicy with blackened edges and served with ultra-soft onions and green peppers.
The chicken was tender.Big chunks of white meat in a creamy tomato based sauce, which we sopped up with toasty naan. Fluffy rice accompanied the chicken.
PS. Other media was there. Bill Buckmaster, long time Tucson radio talk show host and his wife reported that the mango chicken was “amazing!”
India Twist opens today. There will be a lunch buffet and you can have any number of clever cocktails from the full bar.
I’ll be back.
