The moment one thinks of Lucknow, for non veg lovers, the name of Tunday Kebabs ring in the mind, instantly, as if it is synonym with the city. Well, Tunday is no doubt good but then that’s not the end. There are many more eateries which serve finger licking delicacies much to the delight of the meat lovers. The Awadhi Mughlai Cuisine has its own class.
Last Sunday, in a chilling cold, in an open courtyard with efforts to warm up the ambience with some live fire Sigree, I enjoyed an amazing dinner in a Food Pop Up curated by Chef Rajan Bedi. The three-course meal started with Amalokhi Soup, Chicken Tikka and Rampuri Seekh Kebab as starters. The main course included Lahsooni Dal, Amritsari Fish Curry, Murgir Jhol and Lal Maas. The accompaniments included Bhut Jolokia Chutney, Aloo Pithika and Khorisa (fermented Bamboo Shoot) Pithika. And the wonderful fare wrapped with Malpua topped with Moong Dal Halwa.
