I had been hearing this quite a lot over the past couple of months in terms of VFM north Indian food, one of those days when a plan to Arsalan was cancelled due fear of Emosanal atyachar, guests landed up, hence decided to try it out on a whim.
Since, there were just two of us & we rarely order non vegetarian home, ordered a full vegetarian meal.
Paneer Palak – nice with chunks of soft melting paneer, the gravy should have been a bit thicker. Dum Aloo – The best of the lot, thick gravy with sufficient dum in it. Pindi Channa – kabuli chana with bits of paneer and aloo, ok taste and maybe I’ve not tasted enough of them, but would definitely not categorize this as Punjabi/north Indian, tasted like a miz of Marwari+Gujarati trying it out for the first time.
The paranthas were piping hot – laccha & the hari mirch were the best followed by the ajwain.
The cucumber raita was nice, not sour, but needed a dash of extra mint/masala to give a bit of zest.
My eyes had lit up when reading ‘Chole rice’ and had ordered that along with veg pulao. The chole & rice came separately – chole were the same as chana without the paneer & aloo. The veg pulao/biryani had beans/carrot/peas – which were practically uncooked and did not work for us.
Whilst, the service was quick, some of the food was good, the rest barely passed muster. And if the non vegetarian is supposed to be better, maybe I may try it out, but for home delivery, vegetarian, sorry, not again.
