New Spice Route Supper Club Menu: A Celebration Of Mangoes!
New menu for Saturday, June 11th, 2011 @ 8pm:
A Kerala take on a seafood salad: gently spiced sauteed shrimp over layers of ripe mango and papaya.
A trio of vegetables: mango pachadi (a creamy yogurt-based dish), green beans and red pepper thoren (Kerala stir-fry with freshly grated coconut), and sweet potato verrakku (a traditional sauté with mustard seeds and curry leaves—and it’s the season right now for Indian sweet potatoes).
Duck roast with pan-roasted potatoes served with Asha’s fresh mango chutney. With this dish, you can taste why Kerala’s pepper is known as “black gold.”
Beef biryani is a classic Malabar rice dish, perfumed with ginger, garlic, mint, cinnamon, clove, and saffron. Homemade spicy green mango pickle is the traditional accompaniment.
We’ll finish with a dessert that showcases mango as its star ingredient. It’s a special surprise!
