KARMA Indian Cuisine

on

Mmmmm... KARMA is by FAR my favorite Indian restaurant in Calgary. Located at 4600 130th Avenue SE this butter chicken will knock your socks off and the ambiance is low lit and romantic with Moroccan lanterns and candles. I find that there are a lot of overpriced Indian restaurants in this city but KARMA is worth every penny!!! I love how they serve your dishes in the pretty gold bowls atop a heated tray to keep your food warm. We went with our awesome neighbors on Friday night and this really hit the spot on a rainy day. Here is what we had (along with some martini's ;):
Before our meals we were presented with a trio of chutneys. The chutney in the foreground is a sweet tandoori sauce, to the right a medium mint chutney and finally a spicy red chutney in the back. My fav is definitely the sweet and mint ones. House made and really flavorful!
Mmmm two orders of beef samosas to start. Great with the chutneys and perfectly crispy. There was ground beef and spices inside these tasty triangles.
Here is a photo of the candle lit trays that keep the fancy dishes warm. In the middle is an order of coconut rice and to the left KARMA's infamous butter chicken for $13.95. To the right another KARMA specialty: chicken Bhoona for $13.95
Close up of the best butter chicken EVER! LOVE dipping my nan bread in this creamy tomato dish. The bowls looks small but I was impressed with the amount of tender, white juicy pieces of chicken in each dish.
Our server recommended this DELICIOUS dish that we would never have ordered on our own. This is "Navrattan Korma" which is a KARMA specialty featuring an assortment of mixed vegetables cooked with an array of spices in a mild Indian sauce. The sauce was almost peanut like and you can make any dish medium or spicy hotness.
Two mouthwatering orders of garlic nan for $3.25 per order. Need I say more?!
Close up of the chicken bhoona. Super flavorful- I would definitely order this again.
Nah... Don't think we liked it ;)
Check KARMA out!!! Hope you like it as much as we do!!!
