Hmmmm Chicken Madras Curry. Does it get any better than a hot, spicy Chicken Madras? Well, it probably does, but not at Elland’s Caddy Shack!
We’ve been frequenting the Caddy Shack for a number of years now and have outlasted previous owners. As a rule we attend most Friday lunch times to partake of it’s varying treats in our varying size of group – We have an entirely select lunch time club where membership is frequently revoked for non-attendance:-)
Some time ago, some of us started having curry with rice for lunch, which at the time was cooked (at least I think that’s how it began) by the Thai wife of the then owner.
Since then, Mandy has taken over the kitchen and as well as learning the Thai recipes, has developed her own curry related style and skills. In fact you might say she has become almost a curry ninja – although I’ve not as yet seen her lobbing throwing stars at any of the patrons…
Today, as a group we pretty much all had the chicken madras excluding Ginger Craig who had a pie – bear in mind that he is from Wakefield and pie is standard fare in that part of the world. Anyway, after requesting extra hotness when we placed the order, Mandy certainly delivered and by halfway through we were puffing and panting (not in a sexual way), as well as enduring the usual head sweat that comes with a fine madras.
As usual, the chicken madras was great although (for me personally because I’m a bit weird and don’t like chunks of tomato) there was far too many chunks of tomato in it! In any case I’m sure Some of our more eagle eyed (hands up if you remember!) visitors will have noticed the “wrap” supplied instead of a chapati and / or naan and purely because of this I have to deduct some marks…
