"ADRAK," Richmond Hill - Well prepared, tasty Northern Indian Cuisine... sadly often overlooked!

Charles Yu | Mar 11, 202104:46 PM    

During this past Covid year, when ever I was in the mood for some good Indian take-out. As if being hypnotized into a 'one track mind' trance, I automatically make the long track down to either Chauhan's or Dum Pukht, on Woodbine & Denison, to get my curry-fix.

Today, on the way home from running some grocery errand, I drove past 'Adrak' on Hwy#7 and its huge sign caught my eyes. I decided to pay them a long, overdue re-visit and get a few of my favorite dishes to take home. These include:

- Lamb Rogan Josh ( upper left ) - Robust, hearty & flavorful. Meat very tender.
- Prawn Curry ( upper right )- Creamy tomato base, big crunchy Tiger prawns. Very tasty.
- Rara Lamb ( lower right ) - Thick, dark brown heady sauce, flavored by a combination of intense spices. Packed with a serious flavor punch!....my favorite of the four.
- Murgh Korma ( lower left )- Light and flavorful in a delightful, buttery Cashew cream sauce. Pity only white meat was used.

Overall, a mixture of well seasoned and well executed, stand-alone creation, individually prepared without the use of any ' mother sauce '. Spice level was spot-on.

To compliment the above, I made myself some Saffron/Turmeric
Basmati Rice at home!
