This is probably the best Indian restaurant around Stockholm. For the simple reason that in quality cooking there are no shortcuts. Sadly, many Indian restaurants in town don’t understand this. They rely on the fact most Swedes’ haven’t been to India and can’t really tell the difference between average and really good Indian cooking. So many of these establishments use the same base curry gravy for all their dishes.
Tony, who opened Chili Masala in the suburban neighborhood of Hagalund, knows that good food speaks for itself and will advertise by word of mouth. Hailing from Punjab in present day Pakistan, he became fascinated with food from an early age. The Punjabi kitchen, like in many parts of India, is practiced in street stalls where anyone who is interested can watch and learn.
So who gave away the secret where to find some great, possibly the best, Indian food around town? An Indian taxi driver, of course. -“That’s where the embassy people go for their food”. This is usually a good sign.
