It’s amazing how thoroughly the potato, only introduced to India towards the end of the eighteenth century by the British (the benefits of Empire!), has been assimilated into the cuisine of the Subcontinent, and when the VVOC inspection team, lovers of that vegetable, visited the Deep Curry House it ordered both aloo saag and aloo ghobi (the latter is not on the menu, but the cook kindly prepared it on request.) The dishes were excellent, the spinach beautifully smooth and the cauliflower oddly crunchy in a very satisfying way. We also enjoyed the vegetable curry and the channa masala of chickpeas and spices (and more potatoes!) The rice that accompanied the dishes was itself tasty, being flavoured with cardamon, cumin seeds and cloves. Our enthusiasm for these dishes was the more significant because we had already tucked away with great appreciation serves of samosas, pakoras and onion bhaajis. An excellent meal,¬†one enjoyed to the¬†accompaniment of an interesting commentary from our friendly waitress.
