Strathfield Good Food Guide : Strathfield Food Guide 2015
Chef Kammadhenu Where did you learn to cook? I had formal training in India at a hospitality school where I learnt about traditional Indian and Sri Lankan food. I learnt how to cook different types of curries, to make the pastes and I studied the different spices and ingredients used in Indian cooking. What’s your earliest memory of food? One of my earliest and fondest memories is cooking with my mother and my grandmother at home in the family kitchen. How long have you been a chef? I’ve been a chef for 10 years and I have worked at Kammadhenu for six of those. I have learnt a lot from working here. You pick up the skills and learn new techniques when you’re on the job. What food do you serve? Kammadhenu serves traditional and authentic Indian and Sri Lankan food, but we also cook Mala dishes. Many of our diners are Malaysians, so we make different types of curries and our roti and dosais are some of our most popular dishes. Some of the Malaysian dishes we make include nasi and mi goreng. Our Sri Lankan desserts – which, like everything on the premises, we make ourselves – are highly sought-after. What is your specialty? The deer varuval is one of our specialty dishes. The chicken chettinad is also another specialty curry we serve. What is your signature dish? All of them are our signature dishes! ourstrathfield.com.au YOU’LL NEED 250gm deer meat 15gm fennel seed; cinnamon stick; bay leaf 100gm chopped onion 100gm chopped tomato 1 1 special curry powder 2 pinches turmeric powder /2 tbs Kammadhenu 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste Salt and oil as required Coriander for garnish Maan curry piratel METHOD Fry fennel seeds, cinnamon stick and bay leaf in a pan with heated oil.

We have specialty meat suppliers since we serve game meats like deer and rabbit. Our fruits and vegetables come from Sydney Markets and our pastes are all hand-made. We buy the spices in bulk then grind and blend them ourselves. Where else do you like to eat? I only eat at Kammadhenu! 32 Burlington Road, Homebush 9953 9999
