Moringa and more
We started the meal with the Kachi Haldi Paratdar Paratha and Safed Urad Palak Dal. The dal came with toppings of browned onions and garlic. The comforting dal and the flaky but soft parathas made for an ideal combination.
From the non-vegetarian section, we sampled the Thande Masale Ki Macchi, the fish was cooked in a thick tomato gravy. While the curry was nicely-seasoned and went well with the parathas, the fish was not as flavourful as we usually prefer it.
We then moved to the Murgh Moringa which was a mix of coconut cream flavour and drumstick leaves. The chicken was juicy and tender, and the hit of spices in the curry was balanced by the notes of coconut cream. Also, the addition of the drumstick leaves makes this dish our top pick from the tasting.
The last dish from the main course section was the Kathal Biryani. We liked this jackfruit-based biryani and quite taken in by the robust flavours it offered. The jackfruit was well-seasoned, came loaded with green chillies, and it made up for the absence of meat in the biryani. We washed this down with the Anar Shikanji. The addition of basil seeds and fresh mint was refreshing.
The desserts section was quite impressive. We tried the Muletti Baadam Kheer and the Jowar Aam Ki Phirnee. While the former was good, the latter blew us away. We loved the addition of the fresh mango layer on top of the phirnee. This decadent dessert was a great end to an equally decadent meal.
