Inspired by the ancient spice trade between India and the Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean, Sharma Ethnic Cuisines boasts a wide array of some of the most popular dishes from traditional Indian cuisine. From mouthwatering curries to Indian Tandoori specialties, our Indian Cuisine menu offers something for everyone!
In this blog post, we’re getting you in the mood for some of the best Indian dishes that Sharma Ethnic Cuisines has to offer as part of our Indian cuisine main course.
1. Chicken Tikka Tandoori
Starting this list off is an Indian cuisine super hit item – the chicken tikka. This sub-continental favorite menu item features small pieces of boneless chicken thighs marinated in yoghurt and spices cooked in a tandoori oven and is served on a sizzler. Chicken Tikka actually gets its name from the Persian language meaning “bits and pieces”. Overtime the tikka has grown in popularity and today you will be able to find many different varieties of the old-school chicken tikka with various cultural influences. From India to Bangladesh and Turkey to Afghanistan – the Chicken Tikka Tandoori is considered to be the “hero” dish of Indian cuisine and is one of our best-selling Indian dishes at Sharma Ethnic Cuisines.
2. Seekh Kebab
Another best seller, the Seekh Kebabs at Sharma Ethnic Cuisine are definitely worth trying! This South Asian dish is made with spiced minced meat mixed with spices cooked in a Tandoori oven and served on a sizzler. While traditionally Seekh Kebabs can be made in a variety of meats including lamb, beef or chicken, at Sharma Ethnic Cuisines we serve succulent beef seekh kebabs for our customers.
Connoisseurs will get a burst of flavors ranging from ginger, garlic, green chilli, red chilli and garam masala as these spices come together to create the iconic seekh kebab taste. Seekh kebabs are best enjoyed with fresh salad, especially onion slices and lemon wedges along with the traditional raita and green chutney. If you are in the mood for authentic Indian cuisine in Malta then don’t forget to order our amazing Seekh Kebabs when you visit our restaurant or order online right now!
3. Masala Fish Kebab
Like our best-selling Indian cuisine items above, our Masala Fish Kebab is yet another authentic main course item on our Indian food menu. It is prepared in a similar fashion, cooked with yoghurt and spices in a tandoori oven and served on a sizzler. An amazing choice for spice and fish lovers who will get to enjoy the authentic traditional recipe and manner of preparation with this classic dish. If you avoid beef and chicken then the Masala fish kebab is a great choice for you as you get to enjoy the classic tandoori taste in your meat of choice.
Our Indian cuisine menu would be incomplete without the much loved Biryani. With its origins from the Muslim communities in the sub-continent, Biryani has surged in popularity all across the world and holds a special place among the diaspora.
Over time different regions have developed their own way of making the traditional biryani with a variety of meat choices and vegetables used. At Sharma Ethnic Cuisines we too offer our customers a variety of meat choices ranging from chicken, beef, lamb and prawn biryani. We also offer a vegetable biryani for customers who would like to go meatless.
5. Palak Paneer
Palak Paneer is the quintessential Indian veggie dish that is extremely popular here in Malta. At its core, Palak Paneer is spinach cooked in homemade cheese but it is the exotic mix of traditional Indian spices that makes this dish an instant hit. Palak Paneer can be enjoyed with a variety of hot sides including freshly baked naan bread from our oven or roti, parathas, boiled rice and a hot favourite makki di roti. While simple in preparation and humble in its appearance, our Palak Paneer is bound to tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting for more!
