Think I have made an important discovery in my search for the elusive proper shami kebab in Birmingham!

Found a restaurant review and it sounds very promising:

"For starters, there was the usual choice, but I was intrigued by the ‘Kings Paradise special kebab’ on the menu. I asked what it was and was told it was like a shami kebab, but dipped in egg and fried. So three of us went for that and the fourth ordered a samosa".

"The kebabs were very good, the dipped egg had formed a thin batter on the outside. The two kebabs, which were of a decent size, were served with a nice side salad. I covered mine with yoghurt and mince sauce and added some onion chutney. The kebabs were finely minced and disarmingly neutral at first, but delivered a fresh green chilli heat as the meal progressed. Reports of the samosa were also favorable, but the portion only consisted of one, whereas we were treated to two kebabs each, which was a lot more substantial in comparison".

Now that description is not only "like" a shami kebab, it is a shami kebab! Reckon I'll get over there today or tomorrow. Very excited about this. I also believe I'm close to cracking the fabulous Abdul's recipe. Convinced there is a touch a Cajun seasoning in there; definitely a hint of thyme.

B xx Very Happy

Just discovered Blades tikka/tandoori marinade recipe on the CR0 forum. Superb! Yogurt-free marinades are the future.

Crikey! My curry masterclass course in Preston is on the same day as Giltrap and Wakeman at the CRS. Chris and Dan Fry support. Course finishes at 4.00 pm. Curry and Prog. Sounds like a plan.

B xx Very Happy

Important curry news peeps. I may have located a decent curry house close(ish) to the Robin 2!

The Curry Lounge. Apparently, Bilston's finest Indian Restaurant.

http://www.thecurrylounge.com/

I will check it out shortly, and report back.

That is information of vital importance Bat! This means that the Robin could be the almost perfect venue, with the White Rose and now a decent curry house close by.... Very Happy

Oops! Totally forgot this thread. Had a takeaway from The Curry Lounge ages ago, and it went in the bin. So, still on the lookout for a decent curry house in/near Bilston.

B xx Very Happy

Glad we didn't drop in then last time we were there!

We actually went to the Wetherspoons as the White Rose seems to have gone a bit downhill recently...

I think for eateries close to the Robin (after prior experience) I'd rather play it safe and use the chippie....!

I've been beaten by the weather twice in the past few months for gigs there, so I haven't travelled to that neck of the woods in some time (in fact, the last time may have been about 18 months ago for the IB gig...), so I'm unsure as to whether anything has changed. It's a shame to hear about the White Rose, as that's normally where I stay, so I hope the accommodation wing hasn't gone the same way as the pub.

Going back to the thread (sort of), myself and JasonJM have found a cracking curry venue in Reading by the name of House of Flavours. A nice central location and very reasonably priced; a three-course tasting menu is £15.99 each. In fact, it's fast becoming a curry house by prog appointment, as I know that JM and Steve Wilson dined there fairly recently as well Smile
