Some Like it Hot

August 14, 2009

Indian spices may be hot and fiery but theres no better antidote to
steamy summer weather than the cooling effects of coriander, onion,
cumin and coconut.

Pop into Madras Pantry for a nosh that truly satisfies. Stuffed with hot
and cold fillings such as Szechuan beef, jerk chicken, mushrooms, butter
chicken and smoked salmon, the burrito-like dosas ($7 each) are a fresh
and modern take on the traditional Indian pancake.

The shelves at this stylish new hotspot (designed by Commute Home) are
stacked with teas, spices, grains, chutneys and beans to take home,
while a large neon yellow ladder stands laden with rice bags.

Wash your meal down with a mango lassi ($3) or indulge in a couple of
sweet scoops of strawberry kulfi ($4).

Haute Indian that cools you down.

Madras Pantry, 877 Queen St. W., Toronto, 416-777-0026.
