An Event with a bit of heat

After a wild winter, it may not feel quite true – but Spring is finally here! Although it’s not quite shorts and t-shirt weather yet, hopefully we are moving in that direction. As we move towards brighter evenings, one of Edinburgh’s classic festivals isn’t too far away – and it’s an evening of fire at the Beltane Fire Festival!

On 30th April, Edinburgh’s Carlton Hill is overtaken by revellers, drums and fire as up to 12 thousand people descend on the city to participate in this ancient Celtic fertility festival.

Red hot curry

So, whether you are an Edinburgh resident, or just visiting us to unleash your primal instincts, why not put some fire in your belly with a great Indian meal. Before you brave the flames we can give you as much heat as you want with one of our classic curry dishes!

Super Start your Meal at The Clay Oven

What better way to open your feast than with one of our finest scrumptious starters!

Murghi Chatt

To narrow down a couple of the many delicious offerings, we suggest The Clay Oven’s magnificent Murghi Chatt. This dish consists of small pieces of tender chicken, cooked with tomatoes and cucumbers in a hot and spicy sour sauce.

Panir Cutlet

If you prefer a non-meat option, let us recommend The Clay Oven’s Panir Cutlet. These are small patties stuffed with home-made cheese, which are then carefully shallow fried. The starter is accompanied with a complimenting mint sauce.

Featured Dish – Kashmiri

Kashmir is located in North India. The cuisine is distinctive in its generous use of curds in the gravy sauce, giving the dish a creamy consistency.

The Clay Oven’s own Kashmiri featured dish contains fresh lychees and sliced banana, blended with exotic tropical spices. This delicious meal is best complimented with both any type of naan bread and Pilau Rice.

Featured Dish – Dupiaza

According to legend, the Dupiaza dish was created when a courtier of Mughal Emperor ‘Akbar Mullah Do Piaza’ accidentally added a large amount of onions to a dish. The dish went on further to make its mark in Hyderabad, becoming a popular regional cuisine.

At The Clay Oven, we create our Dupiaza with the same ‘large’ amount of onions and then add in the wonderful combination of green peppers for a very distinct flavour. Behold, the Dupiaza is a dish to satisfy any Emperor’s appetite!
