North Indian food has always been close to my heart from my childhood days. The ones who know me personally know that I choose North Indian food over the food from the Indian coastal belt (that’s where I come from) any day. I visited Antique Bazaar in Four Points Sheraton to try their Punjabi and Biryani festival menu.
We started off with some Lassi, spiced buttermilk and an array of starters. My favorites were the Patiyala di machli which was similar to fish Amritsari which in turn is an Indian version of fish and chips minus the chips. Bhuttey Di Tikki ( Corn Cutlets) were little golden brown cutlets fried to perfection, you wouldn’t want to miss this one. My friend really liked the Achari Murg Tikka ( pickle flavored chicken tikka) but I thought the pickle flavor was a little too overpowering.
Antique Bazaar also has live entertainment to make your overall experience even better. So after the break from eating all the starters, we got our mains from the lovely Punjabi festival menu. Chef Hoshiyar made sure we were taking care off really well. The Dal makhani with pulao rice was a win-win combination and I thoroughly enjoy it. If you don’t like your food spicy I recommend you the chicken korma which is a bit on the sweeter side. Kheema lovers would love the Kheema Kaleji which is lamb minced and lamb liver cooked in a whole lot of Indian spices. Chef Hoshiyar insisted we try the Ruz Bukhari biryani, the popular dish from Saudi Arabia from their upcoming biryani festival menu. It was perfectly spiced with grilled zesty lemon to add a whole new dimension to this biryani. The biryani festival starts from 1st Dec – 14th Dec with an array of different biryanis to tease your taste buds. This menu has vegetarian, seafood, lamb option and Chef Hoshiyar’s take on all the classic biryanis.
