Bring On The Spice

Where Berlin - - DINING -

no se­cret that lo­cal Ber­liner palates are not es­pe­cially dar­ing when it comes to spice, and fans of mouth-tin­gling, chili-laden In­dian cui­sine usu­ally find their crav­ings un­ful­filled. Kick­ing it up a notch in a city of ho-hum cur­ries is Chut­nify, a ca­sual and color­ful Pren­zlauer Berg eatery spe­cial­iz­ing in the food of South In­dia, the dosa in par­tic­u­lar. This thin, crisp crepe made of rice and lentil bat­ter is rolled up bur­rito-style around a va­ri­ety of saucy, savory fill­ings, then dressed up with chut­neys rang­ing from mild to ad­ven­tur­ously hot. You can’t go wrong with the clas­sic masala dosa, a stew of aro­matic spiced pota­toes, though avail­able vari­a­tions also in­clude char­grilled tan­doori chicken, spicy pork à la Goa, and a vege­tar­ian op­tion with seared chunks of In­dian pa­neer cheese. To quell the fire in your mouth, sip on a car­damom-spiced lassi or the less tra­di­tional tamarind mar­garita. Sredzk­istr. 43. T: 030.44010795. www.chut­nify.com
