A memorable dining journey with the new tasting menu
Bawarchi Indian Restaurant presents a grandeur serving of the new tasting menu named ‘From the King’s Courtyard,’ created from the vision of the owner, Mr Vinay Chawla, with the aim to offer multiple dishes for all diners to enjoy.
Diners are presented first with a selection of chutney including spicy pineapple, sun-dried mango, cilantro and garlic mousse before the mains.
Arrived in a large golden platter with the aromatic biryani rice taking the centre stage, five different curries in smaller bowls is served with a small order of dessert tucked on one side of the platter.
We first feasted on the wonderful Tandoori Jhinga—succulent King prawns prepared by steeping in roasted mustard seeds and caraway then grilled in the tandoor and served with spicy and sour pineapple-chilli chutney.
The Tandoori Chaap—marinated spring lamb chops in fenugreek with mustard oil infused yogurt cooked over hot coal is definitely a must-have for mutton fans.
The Bawarchi Murgh Malai Kebab, a serving of chicken meat in cream cheese, cardamom and black salt, was very aromatic and delectable.
The Murgh Makhanwala or a serving of grilled chicken simmered in lusciously smooth tomato gravy enriched with cashew and finished with piquant dried fenugreek.
Followed by the beautifully cooked Salmon Tikka Masala, the Norwegian Salmon fillets are grilled then served in tomato, fenugreek and onion sauce that offered delightful textures and flavours in every bite.
Next was a signature dish from Kashmir, Rogan Josh. A serving of tender lamb cooked in fennel, ginger, garlic and chillies offered an array of pleasing sensation with the precisely cooked lamb meat.
The last savoury dish was Bawarchi Dal Makhani, a delectable combination of black lentils and tomatoes simmered overnight on charcoal and served with a touch of butter was a lovely conclusion to the lineup.
The platter is accompanied by a basket of assorted bread.
Finally we reached the Rasmalai or Mung Daal Halwa dessert that was very refreshing and sweet, a perfect conclusion to the absolutely delightful meal.
‘From the King’s Courtyard’ tasting menu is priced at B1,100 per platter. The vegetarian counterpart for this platter is the ‘From the Queen’s Court’ tasting menu priced at B900.
