The best Indian curry in Berlin?

What I would give for a good curry…

My father’s proudest moment was feeding me curry when I was just two weeks old. Yup, you read that correctly. Once you have met the Abel Family, you probably won’t even be surprised at this. Another fun story was my dad cooking curry for his father a long time ago. Apparently the curry he made was too delicious to share, so instead, my dad went around the corner to get a takeaway curry for his father and saved his masterpiece for the next day.

Curry is and always has been my absolutely most favourite food in the world and I miss it like crazy when I’m living abroad. I remember being in heaven in India. I was excited to go to sleep each night, as I knew at least three times the next day I would be able to eat curry. The opposite was true in other countries I have visited. Japanese curry sucks (sorry, but it’s just true) and Germany’s take on this delicious dish is just poor. The only place here in Berlin that people rave about is called Amrit. After almost two years in Berlin, we thought it’s high-time to at least try this restaurant. If this is the best Germany can offer, then I am sorry for your Germans.  Get on a plane to England immediately.

Here is what we ate:

Started with this most enormous Onion Bhaji which was amazing!

Chicken Korma is one of my favourites. It was disappointing - the sauce was watery and flavourless.

We got a Saag (spinach) dish, as they didn't have Chicken Tikka Masala. I have to say I was surprised at the lack of the most eaten dish in the UK.... This was pretty good, absolutely stuffed with spinach leaves, but lacked the 'home' taste.

So if you need a curry fix, you can try Amrit. Or go to one of the bigger supermarkets or the Asian Supermarkets and grab the ready-made sauce in a pot. Add chicken and heavenly-food-induced-nommy-coma will begin shortly.
