[Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester] Seven Spices

Harters | Aug 9, 201510:21 AM    

Seven Spices has always delivered a very decent dinner. Not quite up there with the top flight South Asians in the area, but streets ahead of the high street curry houses.

Aloo papri chaat is a good mix of shards of crisp pastry, potato and chickpeas, topped with tamarind sauce and yoghurt. Perhaps a little wet but absolutely fine otherwise. The other starter, chicken tika haryali, was a belting bit of tandoori cookery. Soft, moist chicken which had been marinated in coriander and a serious amount of chilli. Wake-up time for the taste buds.

There’s a good range of vegetarian dishes, although maybe a little too much reliance on variations of paneer. Now that may not be an issue if you’re keen on paneer but my companion in life isn’t one of them. So, it’s the old favourite of aloo gobi then. It’s a good version. A bit of texture to the spuds and cauli and a well spiced sauce . It goes well with the naan.

I forgot to note the name of my lamb dish and, as it was a special, it’s not included on their website. But it’s a good plate of food. Lamb as tender as you like with a good gravy – the heat coming distinctively from black pepper, rather than chilli. I took this with lemon rice which I enjoyed – a faint hint of lemon and a nice inclusion of, I think, mustard seeds.
