Three years ago, at Tasting Australia, the Naancho debuted. Invented by Adelaide chef Ragini Dey, the fried, cheesy dish has been a hit ever since. So much so that Dey has now opened a naancho inspired restaurant on Hutt Street – Naancho Naancho Man.
Since its creation, the Naancho has become so popular that over 100,000 Aussies have now had a taste.
So, what is a Naancho? A spin on the classic curry and naan combo found on most Indian restaurant menus, Naanchos are the modern day version. Crispy fried naan bread is served with spiced meat or vegetables, and topped with tomato and fenugreek sauce and ‘torched’ cheese.
Along with Naanchos, the menu includes clay-cooked chicken tikka, braised lentils and spinach, as well as soft roti tacos, to name just a few.
Ragini already owns Ragi’s Spicery, a restaurant and spice shop two doors down. Naancho Naancho Man, however, will be more casual and focused on quick ‘in and out’ dishes.
You can find Naancho Naancho Man in a suburban alleyway on Hutt Street, surrounded by brick and graffiti. Sounds cool, huh?
The kitchen is also set at the front of the restaurant, so you can watch the creations are whipped up before your eyes. The dining area has a bar, round pine tables and comfortable booths, which is a total selling point, as comfort food is best enjoyed in a comfortable setting.
