Awadhi Food Festival

A mouth-watering menu specially crafted by Dr. Izzat Hussain a direct descendant of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, the last Nawab of Oudh & a celebrity unani medicinal practitioner curated by Dr. Ashish Chopra renowned culinary historian, gourmet author and television host. He provided us with a perfect melange of gastronomical stories about Awadhi Food.
Dr. Hussain showcases his repertoire of classic Awadhi dishes and secret recipes using Unani medicinal herbs and spices, a treat to the senses and to the health of your body and soul! Dr. Hussain’s old family recipes, some dating back to the early 19th century, provide the basis for this festival. A master conjurer of exotic foods, Dr. Izzat Hussain takes great pride in creating food that is easy on digestive system and beneficial to your health. One unique feature of his cooking is that he doesn’t use water and curd in his food.However his food was absolutely delicious and this festival which is on till month end is not to be missed.
The standout dishes for me were Chicken Tikka …. smoky and succulent I could not get enough of them. The Awadhi Ghosht Nihari which was outstanding and I only wish I had room for more …paired with the fantastic Izzat ki Roti which is made with a special multi-grain mix it was to die for….. meat tender and falling off the bone ….. and then the fantastic Ghosht Zaffarani Biryani which was stunning . They had some wonderful vegetarian dishes as well Kaju Paneer Biryani , Veg Paneer Quorma and Alu Hara Dhaniya all of which I really liked. I ended my repast with some delicious Firni and the tasty and unusual Orange Halwa which I had never had before. What with amazing food and great conversation with Dr Chopra and Dr Hussain it turned out to be a spectacular evening.
