KITCHEN OF AWADH
It was an experience in itself to savour Lucknawi delicacies from the city of nawabs at this specialty restaurant in Gurgaon.
The place has basic yet elegant interiors with comfortable wooden seating options and attentive staff.
Started my meal with the “Kebab – Parantha” combos of GALOUTI KEBAB & KAKORI KEBAB (Rs.175/- each) where they served two pieces of each with ulte tawe ka parantha.
Their Galouti kebabs were thin unlike the ones we get in Delhi. It was a pure meat preparation, crispy outer layer, well minced with grounded spices and prepared with minimal amount of oil. Loved it !
Kakori kebabs were prepared with finely grounded meat where the kebabs had crisp outer skin & supple meat inside and the taste of the spices were good enough to go with parantha. It was just good as I have had better at other places.
The mildly sweet non-oily parantha and the bit spicy aromatic kebabs (both) were complimenting each other perfectly and clearly depicted the culinary skills of the chef.
Next was the flavourful GOSHT BIRYANI (mutton) (Rs.350/-), served in an earthen pot. It is for people who love tasteful but less spiced biryani. Apart from a single piece the rest meat pieces were tender and complimented the well cooked long grain rice.
In the main course, had boneless LUCKNAWI MURG MASALA (Rs.350/- for half a portion). Chicken pieces were cooked in tomato & onion based thick masala gravy. It was very close to Punjabi style preparation but with minimal use of spices. Liked it !
I ended my meal on a stellar sweet note. The “PHIRNI was the best” (Rs.125/-) I have had till date. The custard based phirni was appropriately sweet & the texture was super smooth like mousse. Must have !!
In a nutshell, the food was light on stomach and the best part, the rates on the menu includes GST & service charge.
Total bill costed Rs. 1655/-
