Jaggi's North Indian Cuisine, Race Course Road

Jaggi's North Indian Cuisine, Race Course Road
Jaggi's North Indian Cuisine, Race Course RoadJaggi's, located at the fringe of Little India (34 Race Course Road, S218553, tel:6296-6141) serves pretty good Punjabi/North Indian food. Pretty good like I'm sure I'll come back kind of good. Prices here weren't cheap but it was still affordable and frills were minimal. One orders at the food counter like a cafeteria and it's all self service to the table for everything that can be served upfront. The other items that require preparation (like naans which are made to order) will be brought to you when they are ready. The selection of food is pretty decent if not extensive.

Jaggi's North Indian Cuisine, kashmiri naanNotable mentions for me were the butter chicken. While it was lacking in much of the edge from spices as compared to others I've had before, it was rich, creamy and delectable. Filled with chunks of smoky tasting chicken tikka. That smoky gravy made one want to eat them in copious amounts with rice. The kashmiri naan here was also pretty unique. So far, I've had them with a mixture of candied fruit and dried fruits, fully candy fruited and also wholly with dried fruits. This one here had finely minced candied fruit with cheese. I found myself really liking this renditionJaggi's North Indian Cuisine, cheese naan. The cheese naan which was served here was also loaded with generous amounts of cheese. Quite different from the usual variety which generally just has cheese sprinkled over the top of the bread. There is no charred cheese thus. But as I said, the portions of the cheese were pretty generous.

There was also pretty tasty mutton keema simmered with vegetables, a mild and delicious lentil stew and some potato filled with cottage cheese. The latter didn't turn out as I imagined it to be. Thought little of it. Lassi was of course one of the drinks that they served. I grabbed the mango flavoured which turned out to be much more of mango than the yoghurt flavour. It did look excessively yellow. Maybe I'll just go for the regular version the next time.

The damage for dinner for 2 came up to $33 which I thought a pretty good deal.
