Tilda Curry Week Supperclub with Mallika Basu

Tilda Curry Week Supperclub with Mallika Basu

I started Monday and National Curry Week with attending a supperclub hosted by Tilda Rice, and one of my inspirational cooks, Miss Masala herself – Mallika Basu. 

I follow her on instagram and am always inspired by her ways of cooking so it was amazing to be able to try her food.

 The venue was this amazing, colourful and most appropriate room in a bar in Notting Hill called The Little Yellow Door.

 
  

The menu was a wonderful combination of Indian and Bengali dishes, which I was excited about as I hadn’t tried Bengali dishes before and had almost licked my phone screen everytime Mallika posted photos of her food on Instagram.

  

Reunited with foodie friends SuchiChintalSuji and Gayathri, we started off with sparkling wines and canapés. 
The uttapam blinis were delicious and so fresh. These were devoured very quickly. 

  

Next up was mint and coriander kebabs. Had to have two of these as they were so delicious!
  

  

After lots of mingling and catching up we were seated and Mallika gave us a little speech about the supperclub and then we had delicious dishes arriving at the table.
  

The first showstopping dish to arrive was the rice! All rice was the Tilda brand and so delicious. Pictured below is Chicken and vegetable basmati and wild rice pulao.

  

Beetroot raita had a beautiful colour and was so indulgent. Look at that pink hue!
  

These prawns were out of this world! They were absolutely divine. They are called Bengali Chingri Malaikari.

  

The Hyderabadi khatta meetha baingan was a clever and so scrumptious dish made using peanut butter. It was outstanding!
  

Here is my plate full of yummy food. You can get a glimpse of the Kashmiri Malai Paneer. This had an amazing colour and a wonderful kick to it. Rather addictive! 
  

For dessert we were spoiled rotten with two dishes. One was Saffron and Cardamom Kheer and the other was Vanilla and rose firni. It was presented in such a pretty way!

 

I had a wonderful dinner and was amazed by the amount of beautiful dishes and the quality of the rice. I was pleased to get lots of Tilda rice to take home to try and cook with. It has definitely encouraged me to make more rice dishes so watch this space!
