The Alamin Tandoori in Bedford is very popular among locals and visitors to the area, in most part due to the huge range of flavours available on their diverse menu. From the vegetable dhansak deemed ‘hot’ and sour, to the refreshingly light and vegetarian bhindi bhaji, all food is offered in a low fat option for those who are on a diet. The atmosphere is described as being consistently excellent, genuine and genial, maintained by attentive staff.
To give you an idea of the delicious authentic Indian cuisine available: starters offer a traditional selection of meat, fish and vegetable options; samosas, kebabs, onion bhajis, chaat, lamb or chicken tikka, aloo chop, ayre biran and king prawn tandoori.
Whilst offering a wide range of meat, seafood and vegetable curries, the Alamin also covets both chef and house specialities. The lamb or chicken tikka masala is highly sought after, filled with juicy roasted chunks of meat in creamy, delicately spiced sauce. In contrast, the jalfrezi is a spicy dish, laced with green chillies – not for the faint hearted. If you prefer fish curries, the mild tandoori king prawn masala or the Bengal fish jalfrezi, white fish cooked with fresh chillies, onions and garlic.
The Alamin Tandoori also offers a wide choice when it comes to vegetarian dishes, to name a few to tempt your taste buds; the brinjal bhartha infused with garlic, coriander, green chilli and zesty lemon juice and the brinjal and aloo pea special, a combination of aubergine, peas and potatoes cooked in fennel seeds, coriander and fresh ginger – a true feast of flavour.
