Masalas are the key to any Indian dish. The masala is the mix of spices that must be combined in the correct quantities and then added at the perfect moment in order to ensure that that all important taste is up to scratch. Only the best chefs can get it right, and if you’re looking for such a technician in the UK, then Leicester is as good a place as any to start your search. They’ve got some of the best curry houses around, and out in Humberstone, there is one that has more knowledge about powders than Pablo Escobar and Whitney Houston combined. Masalas on Uppingham Road bring the spice to the fore with a menu that is heavy on both the curry house classics, but with a few house specialities. Go for their signature dish of Bombay Kazana, lamb or chicken served medium hot and made with their chef’s own blend. This hotspot is also entirely alcohol-free so everyone will be well-catered for. We can’t tell you more than that – just get down to Masalas and try it for yourself.
Quiet restaurant with friendly staff and nicely cooked food. The butter chicken is great and perfect if you can't eat spicy food! The takeaway delivery is fast too.
