ANYONE WHO says it is too hot to eat has obviously not checked out the kebab festival at Café Roulette, the super cool family diner at Punjagutta that offers a taste of how the world lives. "We decided to have a kebab festival to showcase our Indian repertoire," Madhav Koneru, proprietor of Café Roulette said. "Kebabs are cosmopolitan as well so that goes with the philosophy of Café Roulette."

You could order the kebab as a starter (Rs135 for non-vegetarian and Rs 115 for vegetarian); which would serve two people or as a combo (Rs 160 for non-vegetarian and Rs 145 for vegetarian) where you get the kebab of your choice with dal makhani, roti and a beverage (beer or a soft drink).

Apart from the regular Paneer tikka, Tandoori aloo, and Mushroom tikka, Café Roulette offers some interesting tastes like the Banjara Kebab (soya bean and mushroom) and Chilly Milly (mixed vegetables and green chillies).

For the non-veggies there are Tandoori Prawn and Persian Kebab (original Iranian kebab marinated in Persian spices) in addition to the Kathi, Boti and Tangdi Kebab. The prettily named Chandini (the kebab is baked in silver foil) is also available. "Some of the kebabs we offer are unique to Café Roulette," Koneru commented. "For the Paneer Cheese Kebab for instance, we grind the paneer, mix it with processed cheese and then marinate with a host of spices. Or the Karela kebab is a chicken leg stuffed with mince in the shape of a karela (bitter gourd)." The mixed platter where you get two pieces each of four kebabs of your choice for Rs 135 (non-vegetarian) and Rs 115 (vegetarian) is a boon for those who would like to check out everything.

Available for lunch and dinner, Koneru says, "The kebabs go well with cold beverages and is easier on the stomach well." The kebab festival, which "is an affordable and filling option," is on till April 14. So call 3400201 and indulge those taste buds.
