Indian street food at Madame Chutney
Madame Chutney started out as a small living room restaurant on Alte Heide, where it was always difficult to get a seat. Back then, owner Prateek's Indian street food was still an absolute insider tip among butter chicken addicts in Munich. A lot has changed in the meantime with a restaurant in the old town, but in our opinion one thing is still the same: the authentic Indian street food that is unique in Munich, which you can get at Madame Chutney.
When Pratneek moved from India to Munich a few years ago, she couldn't find her beloved and very typical dishes from Delhi on the menus of Indian restaurants. So she decided to quit her corporate job and bring real Indian street food to the people of Munich. What started in her own garage has now become a large restaurant in the heart of Munich's old town.
Behind the imposing wooden gate adorned with pillars in Frauenstraße is where the magic happens. Here you can make yourself comfortable in a large room with stylish furniture and deliberate Indian accents. Surrounded by charming details and under numerous light bulbs, everything from a quick lunch to a date night or a relaxed evening with friends is possible. On the menu you will find an exciting and varied selection of flavors in addition to the classics known in Europe such as butter chicken or mango lassi.
Madame Chutney's menu makes meat and vegetable lovers happy. Whether you prefer lamb nihari, lamb removed from the bone and gently cooked with hearty dark spices according to a recipe from the 18th century, or the vegan dish chana bhatura with homemade bhatura bread, spicy chickpeas and achari onion rings is up to you. In all cases, you can expect tasty and fresh Indian street food.
Dessert is also taken care of. Shahi Tukda is a deep-fried bread dipped in home-cooked cardamom syrup, topped with Saffron milk reduction and garnished with rose petal essence and almonds. The dishes cooked with love and care at Madame Chutney are absolutely worth a visit. The dishes are a little more expensive than at the old location, but you get a lot of flavor for your money and - in our opinion - unique Indian food in Munich.
