trim

Here is my best explanation:

'fit' is the definition.

('trim' can be a synonym of 'fit')

'serve up in kashmir tandoori' is the subsidiary indication.

'serve up' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.

'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'mirt' is hidden in the letters of 'kashmir tandoori'.

'mirt' back-to-front is 'trim'.

'to' is the link.
