The flavours of India, at home – Australian Jewish News

Posted By on August 9, 2021

Inspired by the British Raj and invoking the regal charms and sophistication of the elegant clubs of royal Indian and British high society, The Posh Spice takes Indian dining to an elevated experience. And in todays environment, the refined and stylish colonial Indian restaurant is bringing the spices and flavours of India to your home.

The Posh Spice offers an extensive and exciting menu, ranging from appetising starters and small plates of traditional street snacks, to the freshest of meat and fish cooked expertly in a traditional Indian tandoor.

Indrani Matta, director of the establishment, says the restaurant offers unique dishes that people wouldnt necessarily equate with an Indian restaurant, including many vegetarian options.

There are also plenty of fish and vegetarian dishes on our menu, with options such as tandoori cauliflower, bhaji bites, spiced lentils arancini balls, and a fennel-dusted fish tikka. Most of our dishes are in the mild to medium spice range, with all dishes available to be cooked in spice strengths of mild, medium or hot to suit each diners preference, said Matta.

The restaurant has also recently added delectable dishes such as the coconut salmon curry and the Durban lamb samosa to the menu, both of which have been big hits with the local community.

Also on the menu are many meat-free choices that still boast the flavours of traditional meat dishes. Listening to the local community, Matta has added several plant-based starters, share plates and mains for those who prefer to keep their diet strictly vegetarian. The no-bird butter chicken is made using a plant-based chicken substitute with the same cream tomato flavoured sauce as its chicken-based counterpart.

According to Matta, the restaurants butter chicken is considered by many loyal customers as one of the best in Sydney. So now everyone can experience the dish, regardless of their meat-status. Theres also meatless lamb rogan josh and masala spiced mushrooms. Of course, there are the traditional vegetarian options of potato saag, aloo gohbi and lentil dal.

Like the rest of the hospitality industry, The Posh Spice has widened its home offering. The Hot Food Ready Curry Bar is a new addition to keep meals quick and contact-free with lunch and dinner options available.

Matta has also introduced parcel boxes.The Indian Parcel Box for two, which Matta says its like receiving a parcel of Indian delicacies in the post, includes a snack pack, two curries, rice, naan and a side, plus a surprise dessert.

Following the success of the initial parcel box, Matta has added celebration dinner boxes, including a birthday parcel box, anniversary parcel box or a gift-it parcel box.

Each option comes with its own special touch, such as a birthday cupcake and candle, or a candle and chocolate heart for an anniversary or a thank you balloon. The boxes, which are all priced at $90, come with plenty of food from starters to dessert, and are meant to be shared between two, but additional serves can be added for an extra cost.

The Posh Spice is a neighbourhood restaurant with authentic Indian food showcasing the diversity and depth of Indian culture and cuisine. The menu, taking inspiration from some of the worlds leading Indian restaurants, is extensive and delicious, with each dish offering something special and unique.

The biggest problem youll have is figuring out what to order or include in your parcel box.
