Continuing Eating Indian
After a recent trip to Little India and years of eating LA's best Indian food I finally got to Agra in Silverlake to try their Balti dishes. They're described as A Rich & Hearty Stew That Maintains a Nice Balance of Hot and Sweet Spicing... Balti Stews Include Chopped Onions, Green Peppers, Tumeric, Cumin, Garlic, Ginger, Crushed Tomatoes, Are Garnished with Yogurt and Fresh Tomatoes, and served In a Hot Balti Hanich. served with Rice.
Their basics were a nice start, but would hint at the saltiness we would experience later in the meal.The vegetable samosas were notably light - in a more pastry-style dough than their typical fried counterparts.The mango chutney, rice and naan all were very good.
We asked them to make the lamb balti pot and channa sagwalla as spicy as possible but it wasn't spicy at all. On the contrary it was very salty, so we wondered if they got confused and made it extra SALTY instead of SPICY?In the end I'll definitely go back as it the flavors were terrific.
