Delhi is the melting pot of myriad cultures and this very tag is one the many specialties of the national capital. The presence of a composite culture has had a profound effect on the culinary treats that “saadi dilli” (our Delhi) has to offer. Gradually, the “dilli ka khaana” has evolved to such levels that a Delhiite will fail to imagine his/her life without it.
Dilli BC, a delivery based outlet, is specializing in the cuisine of Delhi and would be loved by even a common “Dilliwaala”. The “BC” in the name does refer to the common lingo of Delhi, that is pretty prevalent here.
Here are some of the items which I recently tasted:
Dal Makhani : For a hardcore non-vegetarian, a simple dal makhani can also be food gasmic. The one served by Dilli BC should be one of the best I have tasted so far. The pulses are well cooked so well that they retain their individuality but blend easily. The addition of fresh cream enriches the dal leaving a smooth taste on your palate. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Bhatti Chicken: I am amazed by the exemplary smoky flavour of the chicken pieces in addition to their tanginess and juiciness. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Mutton Rara: This dish needs substantial improvement. The gravy is rich with the flavours of tomato and garlic but way too spicy. The spice is so agonizing that it is difficult to eat. Though the mutton is succulent. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Butter Chicken: Tender chicken pieces smothered in a heavenly gravy. The gravy is so smooth and the taste is seamless. It needs to be a bit more spicy and tangy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Mirchi Naan: This dish is not meant for the weak hearted. By weak hearted, I am referring to folks who have low tolerance for spice. Because fried green chillies with their seeds intact embedded in the naan giving it a furiously spicy taste. RECOMMENDED FOR SPICE LOVERS.
