Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 16th 2009
MB INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 16, 2009 35 Chef and owner Nezam Khan at Tanjore Indian. Picture: SIMON CHILLINGWORTH Tanjore serves up Marie Sansom flavours of India homemade INDIAN student Preeti Kannan and her partner Praveen Menon have cleared their plates and are looking mightily satisfied. We look over and notice their contentment as we munch our way through a pile of crispy papadums and various pickles and yoghurts at Tanjore Indian restaurant in Glebe. The Courier goes over to investigate and hear their verdicts on the food. Ms Kannan, who normally lives in Dubai and is studying for a masters in human rights at Sydney University, has scoured Sydney for decent Indian food. She believes she has found it. ''We've checked out a few Indian restaurants and this is definitely the closest thing to an Indian restaurant where we are from,'' she says. She waxes lyrical on the delights of Tanjore's malai kofta -- deep-fried potato croquettes filled with cottage cheese, vegetables and cashew nuts in a creamy sauce. Mr Menon joins in. '' The naan was good and the malai kofta is quite like how it's supposed to be. I just like the way it tastes,'' Mr Menon says. After these comments we gleefully return to our table for our tandoori lamb cutlets. They are generously proportioned and highly flavoured with a mild chilli kick. Our mains come soon after. The chicken jalfrezi has pull-apart fillets in a tomato, onion and capsicum sauce. The sauce has a satisfying, slightly delayed chilli kick, like the time it takes for your brain to register a margarita cocktail. The lamb korma, however, is a curious and ungainly thing. The dark lamb is a bit tough and sits oddly in the light-coloured, rather bland, creamy sauce but this is why I never order korma (it wasn't my choice). The rice is good and the service friendly and knowledgeable. Owner and chef Nezam Khan tells us that business has picked up since March, particularly now the roadworks on Glebe Point Rd are mostly finished. The menu has many North Indian dishes, which tend to feature tomato, onions, coriander and garam masala. ''We don't put a lot of spice like the other Indian restaurants; it's mainly home-style cooking,'' Khan says. ''I have worked in many places so I have picked up the good things and use them in my place.''
