Can you imagine mixing peaches and chicken, or mutton and plums? If not, here’s your chance to taste some innovative fruity dishes only till June 25.
The Fruit’s Friendly Menu is an innovative fusion of meats, fruits, veggies, drinks and desserts. The summer fruits have been well blended with the more traditional meats and curries and the result is a tangy, light meal. The feast for two costs INR 1995 (T&C apply).
What We Liked: The five fruity pannas are a delight and the freshness leaves you wanting for another round.
Among the salads, we liked the Raw Mango Salad. The thinly sliced mango blended with arugula and green almonds was quite delectable.
Tawa grilled peaches with chicken were quite an unusual fusion, but the restaurant has pulled the dish off well. I personally found the two ingredients juicy and they did not disturb the flavours.
There are four dishes in the main course but slow cooked mutton stew with plum was quite a soft and creamy curry. The flavours just burst in the mouth.
And Kair, Ber Kadi Pakoda with the different breads tasted really good. It’s certainly a ‘must eat the bowl’ kind of dish.
While you down these with the many enticing drinks such as lavender coconut detox and alkaline shikanji, do keep some space for the desserts. Both the Sitaphal Ki Phirni and Bael Ras Kulfi are simply yum. You can’t go back without a good bite of these.
Decor and Service: With a traditional décor, the Khan Market outlet in Delhi, is where diners normally find the traditional north Indian fare. Pick up the red telephone that lies in one corner to listen to food stories. Yash, the graduate from IHM Kurushetra, helped with understanding the food and his charming smile made it a really good experience.
What Could Have Been Better: A little less salt in the dishes and lime in the shikanji.
The menu is available at all the outlets of Punjab Grill in the capital.
