The Zari - Ifield, Crawley, West Sussex
« on: May 09, 2008, 06:06 PM »
Enjoyed a very good Sunday Curry Buffet last weekend, well worth a visit!

Years ago I watched the chef make a take-away for me here, when it was a much smaller establishment that just did take-aways. It was known as the 'gatwick tandoori' back then.

I got another tour of the kitchens this time, and spoke to the same chef, who now has a kitchen staff of about 5 to help him. I saw 3 big pots of base on the stove, and I told him how I made my version, like he cared!!

He showed me a large metal box, partitioned into sections containing his whole-spices.  I was suprised to be told one of them was BLACK cumin, this I knew already was a different spice to normal (white?) cumin, it's more expensive and has a slight anise-like note.

Anywhy, this place is worth a visit!
