Kattapas Kitchen

We love Indian food, and there are so many good Indian restaurants that are very close to us.  We were out and about, enjoying our Sunday afternoon and decided to try a new Indian restaurant after.  We went to Kattapas Kitchen, in Broomfield, CO.

It was very clean and the owners were very gracious hosts.  Not only were they the hosts, but they were also the servers and the chefs as well.  At first, we were the only people in the restaurant, but we got there right when they opened too.  Afterwards, other people started strolling in.

The menu had something for everyone, ranging from vegetarian meals to a variety of dosas and curries, with both appetizers and main entrees.  With most of the dishes, you can control the level of spiciness.  We like things spicy, but not to the point where our mouths are on fire.  We went with a 6 on a scale of 1-10 for levels of spiciness.  I made the mistake many years ago, with going for an 8 or 9 in a Thai restaurant, and I thought I was going to die.  So for a new restaurant, a 6 was a good safe spot for us to start out.  As it turns out, that was a good level period; spicy but not to the point were the only thing we could taste was the fire and we could actually enjoy our menu selections.

After perusing the menu, we decided on a Chicken Tika Dosa and a goat curry, with some garlic naan bread on the side.  When we go to new places, we like to try as many things and new items as our tummies will hold, so we always get something different and share it all.  Everything was very, very good.

The chicken tika dosa was served with 3 different kinds of sauces – a tomato chutney, some kind of eggplant dip and a warm, mild curry sauce.  It was loaded with chicken and vegetables.  Both dishes were very good, and we enjoyed them both, but we both thought this one was our favorite.  A dosa is like a very large, very thin crepe stuffed with meat and/or vegetables.

The goat curry was very tasty and very tender.  I think the last time we had goat was a few years ago when we were scuba diving in St. Lucia.  It is not something we eat a lot of, but it was very tasty indeed.  It has a similar taste to beef, and mixed with the curry and the saffron rice, it was delicious.

The garlic naan bread.  Rarely do we go to an Indian restaurant and not have the naan bread.  This was full of flavor and cooked to perfection.  I could easily make a meal just on the naan bread alone.

  1. An Indian chap at work told me the way to enjoy a curry and to know it is good is to have a box of tissues and a big glass of water by your side – when your eyes and nose are streaming you know it’s a good curry! Your meal sounds delicious.

  2. I don’t like Indian food, but after this post, I think I’m ready to try it again! The chicken tiki dosa looks delicious and I love crepes of any kind. I’d probably only go up to a 3 on the spicyness though! 😀

  3. So nice to see you like Indian food. Have you visited India? If not your very welcome to visit and try local dishes. Just go to anything state in India and ask for the popular local food. You will surely enjoy every bit of it. We Indians are very proud of our food and culture and when someone visits our nation we just cannot stop feeding our guests. For us, Guest is our God! 😊

  4. Garlic Naan? Goat curry? Sounds like my kitchen. You know that goat is tenderised by adding yoghurt?
    If you were near me, I’d make you a mutton bunny with sambals and a chilli pickle on the side, extra gravy too, to by scooped up with bread. 😃

    1. I use yogurt a lot to tenderize meat too. I would LOVE to eat at your house. Oh man, that all sounds SOOOOOO good!! You know, you can do the next best thing and make any one of those dishes, or something else, and take pictures along the way and send everything to me at my email address ljbjej@q.com and I can feature you as my next guest chef. I also need your contact information, at least one photo of you and your recipe so i can publish it all on my blog. I’ll be waiting!!!!! 🙂

      1. I feel honoured. Thank you. I’d love to share.
        Generally when I say bunnies, images of fluffy white bunny rabbits are conjured.
        So glad you got me.
        I think too, I need to send to you my kumquat pickle.
        You would love it. Spicy, tangy, easy on the heat but a symphony to the taste buds.
