Taking key inspiration from the success of Shaam e Awadh, The Westin Gurgaon, New Delhi, is all set to dedicate an entire alfresco dining area to the Royal Flavours of Awadh, featuring separate ala carte and set menus specially curated by the hotel’s Indian Master Chef Sadab Qureshi, at the patio of all-day dining outlet.
Unlike other food festivals which are on for a limited duration, the Royal Flavours of Awadh is here to stay within the realms of their all day dining- Seasonal tastes. Complete with live music on the weekends, traditional décor and an extensive Awadhi menu, the team is gearing up to take you back in time and ensure a regal dining experience.
The Legend has it that the Nawabs of Awadh had in their kitchens Khansamas from all over the country and while some influences from Bhojpuri, Mughlai, Hyderabadi and Kashmiri culinary traditions are quite pertinent, Awadhi food maintains its own distinct character and brings together distinctive aromas, tastes, flavours and textures.
“All the dishes that I have grown up relishing and learning every day for a very long period of time are a part of the menu. We have ensured that not just spices but even the utensils like Biryani dums are handpicked and sourced all the way from Lucknow. Every small detail has been paid attention to, to ensure nothing but only the most authentic Awadhi flavours are plated to perfection,” Says Chef Sadab Qureshi.
The extensive set menu and a separate ala carte menu encompass a variety of decadent Awadhi delights like Bhuna Gosht Hussaini, Gilawat Ke Kebab, Nalli Nihari, Lahsoon Mirch Ka Jheenga, Murgh Makhani, Macchi ka Salaan and more. There is also a plethora of options available for vegetarians like Nimona Tikki, Subz Lifafa, Khumb Lazeez Handi, Subz-e-Gulfam, Lahsooni Palak all paired perfectly with an assortment of Indian breads like Bah Khummach, Taftan and Gilafi Kulcha. The menus also feature a sumptuous array of shorbas, biryanis, tikkas and desserts from the land of Nawabs - highlighting the culinary prowess of Chef Sadab Qureshi.
Commenting on the cuisine and the menu, Chef Anurudh Khanna, Multi Property Executive Chef for The Westin Gurgaon, New Delhi and The Westin Sohna Resort and Spa said “The menus created are a testimony of the legacy that Chef Sadab Qureshi has inherited from his roots. Each dish has such a perfect amalgamation of spices and flavours that it instantly teleports you to another era.”
