Mirch Masala

213 Upper Tooting Road
London SW17 7TG

So we set off to Tooting Bec to say goodbye to T, who is moving to Peru. He picked Tooting because it is where is favorite curry house is, so a dozen of us headed off to Mirch Masala after a couple of beers at a nearby pub. It allows you to BYO so cans of lager and bottles of wine were quickly pulled out of bags when we got there. T recommended the lamb chops and karahi ginger chicken, so those were quickly agreed on, and then we tacked on tandoori chicken wings, butter chicken wings, prawn rolls and onion bhaji. I was surprised by how spicy the lamb chops and chicken wings were but they were delicious and smoky (though I still prefer Tayyab's tandoori lamb chops). Prawn rolls were the least interesting of the starters. Then mains started pouring out - kahari ghosht (lamb), kahari chicken, kahari ginger chicken, kahari chicken keema, dal, kahari fish, kahari aubergine, kahari paneer, rice and loads of different naans. All delicious with very vibrant spices - the ginger chicken had lots of fresh ginger, the lamb was tender, the fish was flaky and the dal was lovely and creamy. Too bad Tooting is so far away.
