Food Review – The Kabab Studio, Bangalore

Food Review – The Kabab Studio, Bangalore

Got an invite for “The Kabab Studio” – Gold finch for their Punjabi Food festival. This was my second time after a year, they have outdoor dining area, where it would be more scenic with fresh area, but due to rains on the day, I couldn’t enjoy that area.

The restaurant was very spacious, they had 4 to 5 live counters, for the Tawa parathas, Keema roll, Tawa Chicken, Chat counter and Dessert counter. This festival was executed under the Chef Dayal Singh, Master Chef of The Kabab Studio.

Being a non-vegetarian, I gave tried out all the non-vegetarian dishes, each and every dish was perfect to the texture and taste. I loved the welcome drink – Lassi, it was perfectly prepared with the right texture, taste and aroma. Let me share my experience over the food I had there,

Garhwali Food Festival, Fairfield Marriott, Bangalore

Garhwali Food Festival, Fairfield Marriott, Bangalore

Got an invite for Garhwali food festival at Kava, Fairfield Marriott, Rajaji Nagar, Bangalore. The name sounds very different and new to me, later came to know that it was based on the individual community Garhwali who lives in and around districts of Uttarakhand, India. Much excited for the review, as the cuisine was new to me.

This Garhwali food festival at Kava, Fairfield Marriott, Bangalore happened only for a week from (11th Aug – 20th Aug). The restaurant was well decorated, and two ladies were dressed in Garhwali attire, which gives us the feeling of Uttarakhand. Not only with the ambiance but every time Marriott would bring their authentic regional Chef of the particular region and this time it’s Chef Kripal Adhikari, who came from Uttarakhand for this food festival. Along with him, Head Chef Aniket Das, prepared this delicious feast and all the dishes tastes yum.

Also the most impressing one was the menu was written out in a leaf plate and then the food was served in a thali. Being a non-vegetarian, First Comes the chutney – had 4 different chutneys – Bhang ki chutney (name sounds different and good right? Must to try over there), Bhatt ki chutney, Amla chutney, Batuwe ka raita and Amchuri.

Thali holds – Jakhiya Paneer, Akrot Kebab, Phannu (I have come across this dish through my fellow food bloggers from north but the very first time got to try it, it was awesome – made of mixed lentils), Pahari Rajma, Kafuli (made spinach and fenugreek leaves ) – the color of this dish was more inviting and so it tastes (yum), Chakhor Kebab, Pahari Murgi Tamatar Jhol (curry), Ghanuo Jhol (Lamb Shank), Teetar Biryani, Jinnu ki roti, Pahari Lal Chawal, Mandua (Finger millet) kit Rotti – It was yum, when I tried it with Ghanuo Jhol (must to have), Gahat Ke paratha and Makki ki Rotti.

Coming to Desserts, Kheer (prepared with rice), Coconut Barfi and Bal Mithai (Barfi made of sweetened khoya and coated with sugar balls) – must to try.

Hyderabadi Nizam food Festival at Marriott, Whitefield, Bangalore

Got an invite for Hyderabadi Nizam Food Festival at Marriott, Whitefield, Bangalore by last week, there was huge traffic and finally reached the destination by time.

Hyderabadi Nizam Food Festival at Marriott, whitefield, Bangalore

We had Chef. Madhusudhanan, who has come long way from Hyderabad to prepare authentic and traditional food for this Hyderabadi Nizam Food Festival. As the concept, the food was totally rich with the rich flavors and the masala prepared with nuts like almond/badam, pista, cashew nuts right from the soup till the desserts.

Let me share the food I had there with the pictures –

  • Shorba – Makai Aur Badami (veg) and Tomatar Jhinga (non-veg). I had Tomato Prawn soup, prawns are tenderly cooked in tomato were the taste was well balanced being spicy and tangy.
  • Starters – Arni Aur Channa tikki, Subz Tarkari Tikki and Nawabi Paneer Tikka for veg and Pather ki Gosth and Machi Ki Shammi – All the starters were too good, being a non-vegetarian I always like Pather ki Gosth – were the mutton (lamb) pieces are marinated well in a spicy masala and cooked on the stone top.
  • Main course – What do one remember when it’s Nizam food festival? – Yeah Absolutely you are right – there was 3 varieties of Briyani – Chicken Briyani, Mutton Biryani and Kabuli Briyani which was accompanied with gravies – Dakha Gosht, Paneer Pista Korma, Ambada Dal, Tamatar ki salan. Last but not least the king of Nizam food – “HALEEM” – served with roti, nan and paratha. Haleem was too good, being a lover of Haleem I enjoyed it to the core 😊
  • Dessert – Potharaekulu – The first time I got to taste potharaekulu, which was made with too many soft, crispy layers and sprinkled with finely chopped pieces of pistachios, which melts in the mouth. Double Ka Meetha – It has right sugar level, so that one can have more than two. Uroosa – I felt the taste of beetroot, condensed milk similar to beetroot halwa, but unware of what it’s made of . Chum chum was taste to the perfection and finally the Fruit Custard – I like anything made with the combination of fruit and milk.

Worth to give a try – I am sure you would love it. This festival is from 15th of May till 25th of May, never miss it, perfect for this rainy evenings and the timings – 7.00 p.m till 11.00 p.m.
