Kebabs, shorbas and more
The `Kabura' restaurant, which won the hearts of Hyderabadis with its specialty North West Frontier cuisine, brings delectable kebabs at its ongoing `Great Kebab Festival' for the foodies here.
CRISPY BITE: A wholesome platter
THE VERY mention of kebabs, delectable pieces of vegetables or meat, marinated and grilled on a slow flame, gets the appetite going. These have been popular with gourmets as starters or the main course itself owing to the nutritious content in the chunks. "A serving of kebab with a bowl of dal and bread is a popular meal in the North West Frontier region. In our earlier festival, we had focussed on the cuisine from this region but for the ongoing fest we are concentrating on the kebabs and biryani," explains P. Vincent of Kabura Restaurant about the Great Kebab Festival.
Open for lunch and dinner, the festival presents varied options as part of the a la carte offering. Murgh malai pista tikka made with cheese and pista powder with white pepper for the subtle tangy taste, or a more piquant Murgh boti banjara a yoghurt-based kebab, Machi ajwaini tikka ajwain-flavoured fish kebab and Gosht haseena sheek kebab mince meat with a stuffing of cheese, wrapped with a corn batter and fried, are some of the kebabs in the non-vegetarian fare. Else, you can go for Kabura ka mela a platter of assorted kebabs plated at Rs. 450.
In the vegetarian fare, one finds cottage cheese based preparations such as Paneer nawabi sheek kebab and Pudeena paneer tikka, apart from the Hara makai sheek kebab made with fresh baby corn. The jal jeera served here goes well with the kebab platter. For the shorbas, check out the Shorba chooz-e-murgh or the Shorba annarkali in the non-vegetarian and vegetarian options respectively.
RUSTIC AMBIENCE: The restaurant presents a perfect setting.
Try out the Indian breads like Kashmiri and Kabuli naans or Bharwa kulcha (stuffed with vegetables) with Hundi gosht mutton cooked in a tomato and egg based gravy, Murgh badami almond flavoured chicken preparation and Sabzi dil bahar mixed vegetables, (beans, carrots and potato) cooked with paneer in a rich tomato, onion and cashew nut gravy. For the rices, the festival presents the robust dum biryani in Murgh zafrani dum biryani and Gosht dum biryani. There are other options in the form of Mushroom pulav and Paneer pulav.
