Chicken Curry

Ajanta Cuisine Of India
There are food items that set a standard among ethnic eateries. For Mexican restaurants, it may be the carne asada; for Italian establishments, perhaps it’s the red sauce. In Indian cuisine, there are many markers that may be used to measure a restaurant’s culinary chops, but the most reliable would be chicken curry. The chicken should be moist and tender, yet not fall apart in the sauce. The veggies should be cooked until they are perfectly toothsome. The sauce, stained vibrantly by the spices, should be creamy, garlicky and flavorful. Oklahoma City’s Ajanta Cuisine Of India passes the curry test and then some. This nondescript eatery in the northern part of the city offers Indian staples in addition to dishes that are for the more adventurous. The garlic naan is a must for any meal ordered. 12215 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Oklahoma City. 405.752.5283
