Satya on Sandringham

Hailstorm and gusty. That was the weather all day for Auckland last Saturday but despite that, the day was fruitful with Eden’s photoshoot. Hungry and cold, JC suggested Satya for dinner. Something spicy to spice up the weather. Hooray! Just the mention of it brings wonderful salivacious memories of Dahi Puri; that’s Satya’s specialty and a must try!

Dahi Puri - An absolute-must-try mouth watering appetizer!

It’s a serving of 6 bite-size crackers with mashed potato and drizzled with yoghurt and some chutney sauce. It’s reaaaaally good and literally melts in your mouth with all that potato and yoghurt… plus all the other different taste from the spices (if you let it sit in your mouth for a while!).
For mains, we had the Gongurra Lamb Curry – medium hot to share. We thought we’d try something different from the norm. It also had a note on the Gongurra Lamb saying it’s only available on certain days. Oooo, must be something about it then!

But when Gongurra meets the palate, the sparks weren’t flying. It tasted sour and quite salty for my liking actually. And it’s not even close to spicy. Quite a let down but the lamb was tender though. We also had garlic pratha to dip into the gravy and the pratha is p-u-n-y! Sigh… but it was good! 🙂
