Tandoori Fusion's heart is with our authentic Indian dishes, straight from the kitchens of our owner's home country, but our soul lies in the special fusion dishes our classically-trained Indian chefs come up with. In this new blog series, we’ll be showing you some of our favorite dishes – both authentic and fusion – from across our menu. Each dish, whether it’s from northern or southern India, is hand-crafted in our kitchen using house-blended spices imported from India, farm-to-table vegetables from local Kentucky farms, and a whole lot of love.

This week’s featured dish is our Murgh Malai Tikka, an authentic Indian dish made with ginger, garlic, green chilis, cream-cheese, coriander, and cardamom. We start with the freshest chicken we can find, add some farm-to-table green chilis, as well as our house-blended spices and cream cheese. After being marinated to perfection, the murgh (chicken) is skewered and cooked in our tandoor oven.

A tandoor is an Indian clay oven, traditionally heated via charcoal or wood to add a smoky, delicious flavor to food. We've imported ours so that we can get the most authentic flavor possible into our tandoori grilled items, like our murgh malai tikka. After being roasted to tender, smoky perfection, we serve this traditonal Indian dish on a sizzling platter right to your table.
