There is Cape Comorin in the southernmost part of India in Kanyakumari. Then there is Comorin, a gastropub, in up north, Gurgaon, NCR. A novel concept of Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent fame, Comorin has successfully brought the rustic flavours of down south to the north and on the way, it picked up few flavours and beautifully amalgamated those to create wonders for your palate.
I would have driven on this highway , God knows how many times, over the past almost three decades. Every stoppage on a Dhaba, while having the breakfast of Tandoori Parantha with White Butter,followed by a glass of Coffee, I would feel that something is amiss. This time, I had decided to drive past Karnal and make a halt at Ambala, an offbeat stoppage.
Then came in the much awaited Mutton Puttu Biryani. Had altogether a different look than a Biryani. My colleague, a vegetarian, explained me that Puttu is a breakfast staple in Southern India, particularly Kerala. Steamed cylinders of Rice Flour with Grated Coconut, and not rice grains, serve as the main ingredient and the dish has sweet or savory fillings of you choice. Ours had Mutton.
