Dum Pukht
Submitted by sarfrazyusuf on Wed, 02/05/2007 - 21:25
Maurya SheratonOne of Delhi’s best known restaurants for Oudhi or Lucknowi cuisine is Dum Pukht at the ITC Maurya Sheraton Hotel. Yes this is the same hotel that also houses another very famous restaurant – Bukhara – so this hotel is quiet a foodies paradise. Like the nawabi (princely) culture from which it is drawn, the food and the ambience at Dum Pukht are subtle and refined. Chef Imtiaz Qureshi, whose ancestors were the official court cooks in Avadh (Lucknow) during the Nawab days, creates delicately spiced meals packed with unique flavors. In fact, unlike most other Indian dishes, the Dum Pukht cuisine is not very spicy but instead has a unique flavor that is its hallmark.

There’s the all time favourite kakori kebabs (finely minced mutton, cloves, and cinnamon, drizzled with saffron) that literally melt in the mouth, the dum ki khumb (button mushrooms in gravy, fennel, and dried ginger), and the special raan-e-dumpukht (a leg of mutton marinated in dark rum and stuffed with onions, cheese, and mint) that must be tried. Some other interesting items include Sangam galauti (a fusion of chicken and mutton, fired on simmering coal), the very Lucknowi Noormahal biryani with mutton koftas and Gandum ke pasinde (wheat dumplings). There are also some vegetarian dishes on offer like the Handi kebab which is made with raw papaya and cheese. Apart from the food the restaurant also has a very impressive wine list.

All in all everything about this restaurant spells class and while it is not exactly cheap, it is perhaps one of the best restaurants in the world to sample the dum pukht cuisine.

Address – ITC Maurya Sheraton, Sardar Patel Marg, New Delhi

How to Reach – Situated very close to the diplomatic area of Chanakyapuri, one could either take local buses going towards Dhaula Kuan or hire an auto to get here. There is no Metro station nearby.

T
iming 12.30-3pm & 7.30-11.45pm

Meal for two will cost approximately Rs. 2000.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit
more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Excellent work!

Hello there! Do you know if they make any
plugins to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any recommendations?

Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

'Train ' in previous weeks I mentioned 'Drops of Jupiter' and Save Me San Francisco" but for those who haven't yet listened to Train's newest release, "50 Ways
to Say Goodbye," it's pretty hilarious so check it out. Who is aware of the chat website may possibly truly add individuals features to make chatting far more exciting. One picture doesn't tell the whole story, and a career could easily be lost over unjustified public humiliation or even mistaken identity.
