In keeping with its USP of a modern twist, and bringing back Indian cuisine in-vogue, Farzi Café’s Nizami food festival is here with a new spin on Hyderabad’s favourite dishes.
A dal cappuccino, Maghaz tarts, Haleem Risotto and Irani Chai Brulee are just some of the fun (and yum) surprises on the menu.
Among the Aghaz (starters), Khatti Dhal Cappuccino with Tomato Foam and Curry Leaf Dust is a must try. Every from the presentation to taste is perfect.
Among the Mezban (appetizers) my favourites were the Maghaz Masala Tarts with Tadka Cream and Dum ke Kebab with New Pickle Onions. The vegetarian options that I sampled – Badam & Akhrot Ki Tikke with Green Tomato Chutney and the Paneer Pakeeza with Gongura Pickle Mayo weren’t as impressive as the non-vegetarian ones.
And then for Mashgool Dastarkwan (mains) I’d recommend the Hyderabadi Shahi Mix Ratatouille with whole wheat laccha parathas. That was definitely the best among the mains. The Keema Aamras Croquents with Bidari Coin Parathas didn’t quite make the cut for me. The flavours were confusing and didn’t quite complement each other. Shahi Haleem Risotto with Golden Cashew Lentil Crisp was a much blander version of the Hyderabadi haleem we’re used to. But I guess therein lies the Farzification of the dish. No points for guessing that the Doodh ki Biryani is the crowd pleaser out there.
And finally the Zaug-E-Shahi (desserts). If I had my way, I’d order only desserts from this menu. All three desserts – Qubani Meetha ka Tart with Apricot Malai Air, Textures of Exotic Fruit Plannter and Irani Chai Crème Brulee with Osmania Biscuit were equally sinfully gooooood!!!!
The Nizami menu is available only till 7th March for lunch and dinner so make your reservations today.
