Indian cuisine is definitely one of my favorite types of cuisines in the world. I am always on the lookout for a good place for some Indian food and just this past week I discovered a new Indian food in Redondo Beach; thanks to dineLA! Copper Pot Indian Grill and Cafe just opened this past 2021 and has a variety of different dishes and drinks from North and South India. The dineLA offering that they had this past week allowed me to try several different things from the menu.
Their dineLA offering consisted of getting soup, bread, entree and a drink.
For the soup; I tried the Mulligatawny Soup while my mom tried the Crab Laksa. It was my first time ever to try Mulligatawny soup and I instantly became a fan of this soup. It has a bit of curry along with coconut flavoring and then is topped off with fried shallots. I loved the overall creaminess of this soup.
I also got to try a little bit of the Crab Laksa. It’s a Anglo-Indian lentil broth, served with a dollop of yogurt. This one is similar to the Mulligatawny soup in terms of creaminess. I thought it also had a slight coconut flavor. The main difference is the touch of crab. It definitely has that seafood after taste.
Accompanying our soup and entrees were Garlic Naan and Butter Naan bread. Copper Pot serves their breads fresh from the oven and piping hot! It’s perfect for dipping.
For our entrees; we got the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Andhra Chicken Curry. The Chicken Tikka Masala at Copper Pot is excellent. I loved how the dish was filled with a lot boneless marinated chicken pieces in buttery, creamy sauce. It was so perfect with basmati rice as well as the naan bread. I loved the mild and nutty flavor of their Chicken Tikka Masala.
The Andhra Chicken Curry had a bit more fiery and spicy kick to it. If you like spice; this dish is for you. This curry is a bit different as it has special blend masala from Andhra region of India. The freshly roasted spices blended with the chicken produced quite a unique taste in this curry.
I also got to enjoyed Mango Lassi here and it was one sweet and tasty drink!
I am definitely happy to have another great place for Indian food in the South Bay! स्वादिष्ट!
