We tried 3 new Indian restaurants this month and Chettinad is my favorite! Southern Indian with a deep complexity of flavors in our chettinadu kolli ( chicken curry) which linger a long time on the tongue after each bite. The menu says there are 23 different ingredients making up the spices and flavors of this dish. (-; Reminds me of spicy chocolate. The tomato rice complemented this...more
