Tiffin Store

On her way home from the cafe, Liz brought home food from Tiffin Store on Girard and 7th. Unfortunately they don't have a menu posted on, but you can follow the above link and download a menu from there. This is a dual catering business and dining room restaurant, so you can call ahead, fax or e-mail an order to them for pick up or delivery.

Pictured here, starting from top is naan, Chicken Tikki Masala - boneless chicken breast in creamy tomato gravy, Chicken Korma, Lamb Saag - cubes of lamb leg cooked with spinach and spices, raita sauce, and rice in the middle. I was pretty unfamiliar with Indian food, though I knew I didn't like strong curry flavors. I decided on the Chicken Korma - chicken chunks served in a creamy cashew sauce. Cashews are my favorite nut, so when I saw this on the menu it was kind of a no brainer, I had to try it. It was really delicious, the nuts helped the viscosity of the sauce and it was a little spicy, but not overwhelming to other flavors.

Chicken Korma

The next day, I tossed some leftover raita sauce with some baby greens and reheated my chicken korma for a really delicious leftover dinner. I'm really in love with this raita sauce, it's comparable to tzatziki sauce but with cilantro instead of dill or mint. It's awesome and I'm going to try making a homemade version soon.

    Yummmm, yummm, yummm!!! This looks so good, I wish I had it in my kitchen right now! I DO like Indian food, though I'm particular about it. Never heard of a cashew nut sauce before, but this has to be tried! Thanks!

    I saw that place in the paper the other day. I'll have to give it a try sometime. As of yet, I've not found an Indian restaurant in Philly that I like, and I love Indian food.
