54: Chicken Handi from the Curry Corner
Formerly known as Copper Kettle Express, the Curry Corner, a halal eatery of Indian and Pakistani fare, moved to its new location in Tempe about ten months ago (the exterior sign at the new location still reads, "Urban Eats.")
Finding it is worth the effort. Especially knowing there's good eats inside. Like the flavorful and spicy chicken handi.
Because many specific Indian and Pakistani dishes are cooked in it, the handi, a deep, narrow-mouthed cooking vessel, serves as a descriptor of what is prepared in it. In this case, chicken handi.
Along with chunks of tender chicken, the chicken handi at the Curry Corner includes jalapeño peppers, cilantro, onions, and an array of seasonings. The result is a rich, spicy, and highly seasoned dish made even more delicious with traditional naan, a leavened, oven-baked flatbread.
