Chilli methi keemar thali – The Chilli Pickle

Chilli methi keemar thali - The Chilli Pickle
Mutton shoulder mince Punjabi curry with red chilli, fenugreek leaf, and garam masala. Thali served with rice, butter naan, dhokla, snacks, dal of the day, shorba, raita, pickle, chutney, and a dessert. Railway Thali £14.95
The Chilli Pickle, Brighton ENGLAND

OMG, this was SO much food, and it was really delicious (and a great value)! The lamb curry was frickin’ amazing too – rich and dark, and super flavorful. I liked most of the accompaniments (especially the daal of the day), but the two creamy ones had a weird texture for me. If I had known that the thali had so much food, I wouldn’t have ordered appetizers. Noms!

Again, something I’ve never had before. These were so fun to eat – filling the puri shells with the flavored water and different sauce, then popping them in your mouth. It was a burst of flavors and textures! Noms!
