Curry Haus is a one of its kind app-based food delivery service, currently operating in Gurgaon and South Delhi. The app has a very easy to navigate interface, and each dish is accompanied with a picture and a description. The menu offers good variety and the food is all freshly prepared at their base kitchen in Gurgaon. They have also tied up with the popular brand Bedazzled by Anandna Bhasin for all our sweet cravings.
One very interesting feature in their menu is that you can customize your curry items by choosing the type of gravy you want to go with, such as makhani, saag, chettinad, etc., and then select your choice of protein for paneer, soya, chicken, mutton, etc.
We decided to try out the place recently to see what all the buzz was about. The food arrived hot and on time and was impeccably packed in containers and properly labelled for veg and non veg. Though they were missing cutlery, they did send wet wipes along with the food.
The Pudina Soya Kebab had chunks of soya, which could have been softer, but were nicely chargrilled, and marinated in a flavorful mix of mint and spices.
The Kandhari Murg Tikka was one of the stars of the evening, with its juicy and perfectly cooked chicken chunks in a delicious cumin marinade which was spicy, tangy and robust.
They also provide the option of converting any of the kebabs into a meal by adding 80 rupees. We went for the Shikhampuri Kebab Combo, which had kebabs which were not really shikhampuri (they were actually mutton seekh kebabs), but tasty nonetheless, with dal makhani and lachcha parantha.
The Heeng Dhaniya Pudina Aloo was a nice and different dish consisting of baby potatoes coated in a zingy mint coriander asafoetida sauce, topped with ginger juliennes.
For mains, we had Murg Saag, Murg Tak a Tak, Mutton Korma, and Khatti Dal Tadka.
The murg saag had a thick and creamy spinach gravy, which was mildly flavored with fenugreek. The delicate flavor of the saag and the juicy chicken made for a pretty good dish. On the other hand, the murg tak a tak was spicy and robust, and the chicken was smoked and tossed with spices, onion, and coriander. While the two dishes were very different from each other, they were both amazing, but our favorite would have to be the murg tak a tak.
The Mutton Korma had a creamy, almond-based gravy with a touch of saffron, and the mutton was of good quality and was perfectly cooked. Though the dish was really tasty, the spice level could be amped up a bit.
The Khatti Dal Tadka was a home-style dish made with yellow lentils and a touch of raw mango for sourness, and tempered red chili, cumin, garlic, and herbs.
We had these dishes with Missi Roti, Pudina Parantha, and Mirchi Parantha, all of which were thin and nicely made.
For dessert, we had the Kesari Phirni, Toffee Caramel Cake, and Chocolate Fudge Cake. The phirni had a lovely saffron flavor, was light on sugar, and perfectly made. Also, it was set in a clay pot, which adds a nice earthy flavor to the dish. The Toffee Caramel Cake consisted of a moist vanilla flavored tea cake, layered and topped with rich caramel sauce, finished with white chocolate chips and a drizzle of white chocolate sauce. We were a bit concerned about how sweet it may be, but actually it was really well balanced in flavor. The Chocolate Fudge Cake was rich and decadent- the chocolate cake was layered with a thick and gooey chocolate frosting and topped with chocolate shavings. All the desserts were really great, and made for a nice end to this delicious meal.
Overall, we were really impressed with the ordering process through the app, the delivery, packaging, as well as the quality of the food, and will definitely be ordering from Curry Haus again, especially the Kandhari Chicken Tikka, Murg Tak a Tak, and the Khatti Dal tadka.
