Seldom do we get to indulge in delectable Mughlai cuisine in the comfort of our homes. And when the class apart dishes are delivered right at your doorstep, the happiness is fourfold. So when Nom Nom Desi managed to prepare a lovely assortment of appetizers in a short span of two hours and achieve on time delivery, we were pleasantly surprised to say the least:
Chicken Tikka: No compromises on this staple starter of Delhi NCR. The boneless chicken pieces were tangy, spicy, juicy to the core and adorned with freshly chopped coriander. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken Malai Tikka: Tender boneless chicken pieces drenched in a creamy sauce and grilled to perfection – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken steamed dimsums: These do look like regular road side momos but have a bite and you will gauge the difference. The exterior is neither too thick to the point of being undercooked nor too thin to the point of disintegration. The minced chicken mixture is flavourful and the whole ensemble is topped with chaat masala. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Mutton Kakori kebab roll: This actually got spoiled on the way and hence no pictures. Talking about flavours – excessive use of cinnamon in the kebab marred the taste of this item.
Overall rating: 4.5/5
Would we try this again? Yes, of course!
My previous experience with Majeed’s went excellent and I had pretty high expectations for the recently opened Gurgaon outlet. Needless to say, I am mesmerised by their lip smacking, salivating and finger licking preparations. If you have not tried their outlet, then seriously guys, you are missing some good food gasmic moments.
The order arrived well in time and their signature packaging displaying their humble logo is a treat to the eyes. Moving on to the food which was ohhh-so-lovely, here are my views on them :
Chicken Hyderabadi Dum Biryani : While Biryani Blues loves dishing out extremely spicy Hyderabadi Biryani, Majeed’s believes in keeping it subtle. The biryani is so well made, moist, not too oily and contains huge pieces of chicken. The chicken is well laced with spices, moist, soft yet a bit chewy and flavourful. The taste of cardomam (green as well as black) is pretty prominent here. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Mutton Kakori Kebab : So after Al Kauser, Majeed’s should get the best conjurer of these wonderfully soft kebabs. The aroma you get when you open the box is to die for. The sweet waft and flavours of saffron, screwpine essence and green cardomam, the silky soft texture of the kebabs and their melt in the mouth demeanour is to die for. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Afghani malai chicken tikka : Though all the dishes were excellent, this was the hero of the night. The soft, moist and chewy boneless chicken pieces are heavily drenched in a thick gravy of cream and yoghurt. The gravy has a smooth texture and is neither too runny nor too thick. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
