Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
Exemplary home-style cooking from Tamil Nadu
With only 20 covers, it’s a miracle Sanmini thrives out in the hills where trade can be sporadic. Food hails from the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu whose warm soils owners Dr Dev Sankar and Mini Sankar emigrated from. They run this charming, home-style operation alongside full time work as medics and everything is cooked to order. From the exotic potato filling of the airy masala dosai, to a juicily-spiced Chettinad chicken curry, served on the bone, it’s a feast of spice and flavour. ‘Non-veg’ starters, mains and thali meals (or mixed platters) are available and you can opt for regionally-themed meals from, for example, the districts of Cholan, Pandiyan or Cheran. Wine sourced from India (the red is better than the white) contributes to a compact list while lunch or tiffin choices include steamed rice cakes with lentil sambar, or muttai dosai (pancake, egg, chicken curry). Family favourites like gulab jamun and a more experimental beetroot halwa suit sweet teeth.
