Mango Indian Restaurant Borough Takeaway Meal

We thoroughly enjoyed our Mango Indian Restaurant Borough Takeaway Meal at the weekend. One of the cuisines we missed during the Coronavirus Lockdown was Indian food. We had meant to book a table at the Mango restaurant, but then COVID-19 struck, so we decided to have a meal delivered instead. We are trying to support local restaurants by ordering at least one home delivery a week. Besides, I’m getting bored with my cooking now!

Our Takeaway Meal From Mango

Our Mango Indian Restaurant Borough Takeaway Meal

We over-ordered, but hey, it meant that we had the leftovers the next day, which was nice. At Mango, the focus is on traditional Indian dishes with a contemporary upgrade involving fabulous flavours and ingredients. From the starter selection, we choose Aloo Tikki, which is a vegetarian Mumbai street food. Aloo means potato and Tikki means small croquette. The dish comprises of two round potatoes cakes with chickpeas, fresh coriander and cumin seeds. A Chutney Dip accompanied it. I enjoyed this delightful little starter which is perfect for two people to share.

Homeboy treated himself to Chilli Squid, which had a punchy heat spice kick. The squid had a chickpea flour batter coating. Other starters include Pappadums with Chutney, Onion Bhaaji, Kebab Platter, Pan Fried Scallops, Dill and Mustard Salmon Tikka, Malabar King Prawn and Adraki Lamb Chops.

We selected three vegetarian curries to share. You have an option to choose small or large sizes so you might want to go for the small size so you can try a few out. The Vegetable Makhani was a vibrant red colour full of baby carrots, corn, snow peas, broccoli with Kadai spices.

I loved the Yellow Dall Tadka, which is various lentils tempered with garlic. We did try to make this at home during the Coronavirus Lockdown, but it wasn’t very good. It was nice to try a professional prepared Dall instead! The Chana Palak was also delicious with a combination of chickpeas and spinach. We decided on a Lemon Chilli Rice and Peshwari Nan to go with the curries. The flavours, ingredients and texture of the dishes we selected were perfect.

Except for the Chilli Squid, we ordered all vegetarian dishes. If you like poultry, meat or fish try the Chicken Chettinad, Kadai Chicken Jalfrazi, Lamb Lahori, or Goan Fish Curry as a main. The Tandoor offering includes a Meat or Fish Platter, which is ideal if you are sharing with a few friends. The rice and bread selection is pretty good with all the favourites; Basmati Rice, Pilau Rice, Tandoori Roti, Cheese Nan and more.
