Indian Curry in Manhattan? Tastiest, thickest, greasiest

fooddudeone | Sep 29, 2008 11:06 PM

I'm looking for a super casual place to eat for lunch or whatever that serves the best Indian Curries in Manhattan, anywhere. (im new to nyc, and only tried Polash in Harlem, and it was pretty good and thick).

"Best" may be the tasters opinion from my experiences... my definition/or what im really looking for (may not be the most traditional, or "your moms home cookin" if your south asian) is the most rich, thick, greasy, unhealthy, spicy, salty, smokey curry with accompanying tender cooked chicken/lamb etc.

I have some indian friends back home, and some of them have a preference in "cleaner" more watery and blander tasting curry places and say the places I usually like (that are heavy, greasy, thick, salty, etc.) are not what traditional indian cooking is really like. But, I really like the death curries ;)

So please offer your tips of the best, thickest, saltiest, tastiest, fattiest, unhealthiest, casual,hole in the wall,mom n pop, Indian curry places you know about
