May 17, 2022 Size Doesn’t Matter Size Doesn’t matter Size doesn’t matter With the cost of living crisis starting to bite, we’re very conscious that lots of people are having to tighten their belts. Others may feel they need to be a bit more cautious about their spending until they’ve got a better idea how hard things like energy and fuel bill increases are going to hit them. At The Crafty Indian, we don’t want anyone to miss out on the pleasure of coming out for a relaxing night out and enjoying our delicious Indian Street Food. We don’t want you to feel under pressure to restrict your visits to weekends and special occasions. We especially don’t want the crisis to have a negative effect on our loyal regulars who’ve been dining here consistently while times were good. So, we had a good think about how to make sure The Crafty Indian experience is still affordable to all – but without compromising on the quality OR the quantity of our popular main menu. How could we “Help Out to Eat Out”, as the saying goes? The answer, we believe, is this. We want to draw your attention to our tasty snack menu which offers an equally delicious selection of light bites at very affordable rates, costing under a fiver a dish. The Crafty Indian is a community venue and we’ve always welcomed craft beer fans to pop in and join us just for a drink and a chat. But, unlike many restaurants, you’re equally welcome to come in for a drink and a light snack meal, or even just a few nibbles, on any day of the week. You can mix and match our snacks, to make your meal as little or large as you wish. All the snack prices are listed separately on the menu, so you can always keep a tally of what you’re spending. Choose from delicacies (many suitable for vegetarians and vegans) like: Our Roadside Snacks – a collection of tasty treats that you’d find on street market stalls the length and breadth of India Pani Puri – mini wheat puris served with chickpea, potato and onions, flavoured with spiced tamarind water Veg Momos – vegetables in steamed wheat dumplings, a favourite on the streets of Nepal Onion & Spinach Bhaji – onion and spinach cooked in a chickpea batter Gobi Manchurian – cauliflower florets cooked with peppers in soy and chilli sauce Aloo Tikki – potato cake served with chickpeas, yoghurt, tamarind and coriander chutneys Hyderabadi Murgh Tikka – grilled chicken thighs marinated in yoghurt with spices Parsi Mutton Cutlet – ground mutton and mashed potato cooked with delicate spices Chilli Chicken – chicken marinated in wheat flour cooked with onion and peppers in a soy and chilli sauce Fish Amritsari – fish fillet marinated in chickpea flour and whole spices Check out the snack menu and prices here: https://www.thecraftyindian.com/#menu Meanwhile, for those who still feel able to go the whole hog, we’re currently busy updating our full menu, as well as our snacks, to make it even more amazing while still being great value.
