Regional Indian dishes in Leith

One of two Shri Bheema restaurants in Edinburgh, the Leith branch is on Constitution Street. Part of an award-winning group of restaurants that stretches from Aberdeen to the south of England, this Shri Bheema is a family-run restaurant specialising in regional specialities from the north and south of India.

Dishes from Goa to Punjab

From southern Indian dosa pancakes and rice cakes to northern Indian biryani dishes, Shri Bheema specialises in regional Indian cooking. From Bengal there are fish curries and Kolkata-style king prawn dishes. Representing more northern regions, there are dishes like the Punjab butter chicken; aromatic lamb dishes from Kashmir and Parsi dishes which fuse Persian and Gujerati influences. A street food section offers several variations on filled parotta, the layered flatbread which is very popular in Kerala. Other options with a distinct regional flavour include the Goan lamb vindaloo and Hyderabad-style chicken in a lababdar sauce made from ginger, mixed pepper, coriander leaves and cream. Vegetarian diets are well catered for with choices like the Rajasthani dish of sautéed okra in a spicy onion and tomato-based masala.
