Satkar in Sunnyvale

escargot3 | May 15, 201510:35 PM

Headed over to Ulavacharu this evening but saw a notice of new ownership posted on the door. Decided to go elsewhere.

Ended up having a great meal in a small hole-in-the-wall but quite clean location: Satkar. It was quite busy with both take-out orders and eat-in. The food was outstanding.

Started with Dahi Vada - appetizer of lentil dumplings in a yoghurt sauce. The dumplings are kinda dry - but smashed, they soak up the liquid and acquire a lovely flavor and lottsa protein.

Tandoori shrimp was interesting -- very smokey flavor, it arrived on a cast iron platter atop a bed of onion.

Okra Masala was extra crispy, as requested.

Chicken Makhani was the surprise: shredded tandoori chicken in a fenugreek creamy sauce with nuts. REally different.

Dal had a very differenet spicing. Can't name it, unfortunately.

And also to be noted: I loved the chapattis - soft interior, slightly blackened exterior. Even the mint sauce seemed at once more delicate and spicier than most.

It's a busy spot, so service was slow. We were happy to watch the scene. I will be back.
