DUM PUKHT

By Chris Boyle

CLASSIC DINING AT DUM PUKHT

Style / ambiance: Grander and more majestic than ever, the recently renovated Dum Pukht continues its legacy of Awadhi cuisine.

The interior is suggestive of a bygone age, evoking a sense of old-world charm. The ornamental chandeliers add to the grand setting, a fitting backdrop for serving the 200-year old cuisine of the Awadhi Nawabs. Dum pukht is a process of cooking by steam, where the ingredients are literally cooked in their own juices to bring out true aromatic flavors. The heritage thus continues with a regal spread of sumptuous fare served by courses. Preparations like motia pulao rehmani, murgh chandi tikka, dum pukht badin jaan and shahi nehari are served with a variety of breads traditionally prepared in the tandoor in great presentation. As the grand finale of a lavish meal, desserts garnished with the finest gossamer of gold and silver add the ultimate crowning touch. The restaurant offers not just a stint with royal cuisine, but a heavenly experience that gratifies one’s appetite and senses alike. A massive hit among famous visitors, celebrities who have eaten here include numerous Bollywood stars as well as the president of Singapore.
