An Oudhi Feast at Sheraton

IMG_6846-1

There’s much that Hyderabad has in common with Lucknow right now – a hot summer boiling in the 40 deg C range, a history of nawabs and, Oudhi cuisine, courtesy of Chef Rehman Mujeebur and his khansamas.

The ongoing Oudhi food festival at Sheraton curated by Chef Rehman is a treasure trove of authentic flavours reminiscent of the days of yore

The festival is on till the 23rd as a dinner buffet. Since I couldn’t make it for dinner, the team graciously hosted me at lunch with a select few items. Missed the whole hog (pun unintended) but if judging by the few dishes I sampled, it’s a sure winner.

From the starters I sampled Gaulati Kebabs (a tad spicy, I guess to appeal to the Hyderabadi palate), Lentil Shammi Kebabs, Peeli Mirch Machli, Aloo Tukdi ( poatato squares seared to perfection) and the Murgh Tikka Mirza Hasnu, named after a Lucknowi nawab who took a special liking to this particular style of murgh tikka. The bite size succulent pieces grilled in a tandoor was my favourite of the lot.

Dishes to definitely try for the main course are the Aloo Dhum Oudhi and Murgh Kasoori Methi.

Zafrani Kheer was supringly light and made for the perfect ending to a delightful meal.
