Don’t Tell Aunty, Surry Hills

Growing up in a heavily Indian populated neighborhood, I’m no stranger to Indian food. And I’m talking tiny little joint, with barely any decor, but ridiculously good food sorta Indian food.
But for the uninitiated or something a little more hipster, I’d recommend Don’t Tell Aunty.

Balls of Happiness ($16)

Balls of Happiness are little fried dough balls, filled with a delectable mixture of yoghurt, tamarind and other tasty additions which I obviously didn’t pay attention to. But it’s a quite moment of happiness as we’re told we have about 10 seconds to eat it. The delicate thin crisp ball doesn’t last long before the moisture from the fillings get to it! But each bite is an explosion of delicious flavours, and we’d have to say that Balls of Happiness is a pretty accurate description!

Unauthentic Butter Chicken ($21)

Of course we had to go for the butter chicken, which might be unauthentic but is oh so tasty! The yogurt-marinated chicken is tender and we’re loving the sauce that’s made of tomato, ginger, garlic & fenugreek.

Chana Masala ($16)

But it’s the Chana Masala where the flavour really packs a punch. The garam masala, pomegranate & mango powder make for a nicely balanced curry, which go well with chickpea.

Naan Basket ($12)

Naan is our choice of vehicle to mop up all the tasty curry sauces, and we’re not at all disappointed by the naan basket, which comes with a variety of plain, garlic & chive as well as sesame & onion seed naan varieties. Soft and fluffy, we’d easily have these on their own.

Massaman Beef Curry

You know winter is actually here when you have to set your alarm fifteen minutes earlier in the morning to allow for the struggle of getting out of your warm bed in the morning. And when your walk to work takes about half the usual time because you’re power walking to bring your heart rate up.

Ahhhh winter. It feels like you went away not that long ago!

You know winter is actually here when you have to set your alarm fifteen minutes earlier in the morning to allow for the struggle of getting out of your warm bed in the morning. And when your walk to work takes about half the usual time because you’re power walking to bring your heart rate up.

Ahhhh winter. It feels like you went away not that long ago!

I feel like it was only yesterday that I was packing away my winter coats, ugg boots and thick blankets and now I’m taking them back out again! Also making a reappearance is my trusty thermal cooker, which I have started using again on a weekly basis for my repertoire of soups, curries, stews and whatever else warm I can think of to get me through the winter.

Creamy Coconut Peanut Curry Noodles

 

This recipe was originally supposed to be for a Creamy Coconut Peanut Curry Dressing recipe, but winter is not the perfect time for salads, so I heated it up and served it with noodles instead. 

And it worked surprisingly well!

I’d gotten into a bit of a system where I pre-made most of my week’s lunches on Sunday so I wouldn’t have to worry about it during the week, so I’d actually made this dressing weeks in advance, kept it in the freezer and forgot about it until it fell out one day and the container broke.

Coconut Pumpkin and Chickpea Curry

Lately, it seems that everyone’s tastes have been changing.

From being the sole avocado lover in the family, to having the family go through bags of avocado at a time. Or from only having cheese once or twice a year, to having two or three slices of cheese on toast every morning. You just can’t guess what we like to eat anymore! Read more
