If you are in the mood for something delicious and exotic, Coriander Modern Indian may just be the place for you. I admittedly have not had much Indian food in my life, but my visit to Coriander will certainly change that.
When I told my friend that I would be having Indian food, he implored me to have Lamb Tikka Masala, and while technically only Chicken Tikka Masala is on Coriander’s menu, they will gladly make it with lamb if you ask for it.
My friend was absolutely right, Lamb Tikka Masala is a must have, especially at Coriander.
The sauce is a combination sweet, spicy, and plentiful; it engulfs the entire dish in a proverbial pool of flavor. The lamb is large, thick, and very tender, and mixed in with the sauce, it tastes out of this world. Furthermore, it is garnished quite nicely.
Traditionally it is eaten with rice, and while one can put the rice on a plate and spoon the Tikka Masala over it, I’ve found that I enjoy putting the rice in the bowl and having everything meld together. Also, try the naan bread, it is excellent.
For a delicious Indian meal in a nice modern atmosphere, get yourself over to Coriander in White Plains or Larchmont; its a great place to try something new, or have a great version of an old favorite.
