Shorba with bread: Bread fluffy and with a distinct flavour of fennel. It compliments the tangy and light tomato shorba pretty well.
Pudina Rani Murg: The juicy chicken leg piece is good to dig into and refreshing mint marination along with creamy yogurt is a wonderful add on.
Galouti Kebab: The chefs at The Great Kebab Factory are Galouti Kebab specialists – you know it when the kebabs are flavourful and melt in the mouth.
Machhi ke sholey: Delicate fish chunks with a chewy crust – I could not have asked for more!
Gosht Tawa Chaap: A very pleasant surprise! The tender mutton ribs are drenched in a hot and spicy gravy with the prominent flavour of black pepper. Lip smacking to say the least!
Methi Murg Malai: The usual Malai Chicken with the goodness of fenugreek and smoked to juicy perfection.
Mutton Dum Biryani: Pure love with tender mutton pieces in a flavourful bed of rice and coarse spices.
Mutton Rogan Josh: My favourite to place to have Rohan Josh – the lightly mutton shanks in a rich gravy served with Naan.
Gulab Jamun: Very mellow and moderately sweet.
Moong Dal Halwa: Full marks to the presentation! The halwa has the necessary richness but not too sweet.
Pineapple Phirni: The velvety texture will leave your heart splits although the extra sweetness will compel you to have this slowly. Hi
There are very few places specialising in Mughlai cuisine which are able to dish out a decent meal, forget about bringing their innovation to the table. The usual tikkas and kebabs sometimes get boring and creative energy in culinary arts is the rule of the day. Majnu ka Tilla has excelled on both the frontiers.
Without much ado, I would straightaway move forward to the loebly spread that was sent to me a few days back:
Chicken Tangri Kebab: Why in the name of God did I taste this? I have always been drawn towards the salivating Tangri Kebabs and these stuffed ones in thick sticky gravy just set a new bar for my taste buds. The stuffing of finely minced chicken with a juicy exterior of the leg piece drenched in yoghurt based gravy and the occasional green chillies will leave you yearning for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Achaari Paneer Tikka: Tangy and spicy – wohoooo! The smoked cottage cheese pieces and the red, yellow and green bell peppers were smoked to perfection in the tangy and peppery batter. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Majnu Special Afghani Chicken: The reason these guys call some of their dishes as special is because they use gravy in these appetizers. The tikka was perfectly smoked, succulent and drenched in a lovely gravy of yoghurt, green chillies and coriander flavoured with chaat masala . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken Tikka: Again gravy based with tender boneless chicken pieces spreading the warmth in your mouth as well as stomach. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Paneer Lababdar: Vegetarians, you have to binge on this one. Thick and sliky gravy with the occasional bite of cumin seeds and a prominent flavour of the onion tomato mixture goes so well with every Indian bread that you can think of. And the paneer – top notch! They also use a secret ingredient in their preparation which I am of course forbidden to reveal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
