Heard of this place from a million people, gazillion websites and tv shows. If you are a meat-lover and in Delhi, this is definitely a place, you wouldn't wanna miss.
After asking around for suggestions, the branch at Chandini Chowk, Juma Masjid was the one I headed to. The crowded streets, the many faces, the busyness, the madness, it was like a perfect 'preparation' to a kick-ass lunch!
And with the final left turn, we finally reach an array of 'Karim's'. After confirming which place had more number 'non-Indian' customers, we get in.
We then ordered: mutton qorma, qeema naan and plain naan. Well of-course we ordered the biryani, but since we reached 'early', we had to wait till 1 pm(which we did).
While waiting for our order, I saw a delicious looking mutton dish and asked the waiter to get me that, and they did. It was the Mutton Burra. Something like mutton tikka, with huge chunks of mutton, flavored all d way deep. 4 pieces of awesomeness!
Then came the naans and the qorma. Frankly, the qorma was topped with quite a lot of oil, had to actually drain it off. I started of with the qeema naan and it was just brilliant, the qeema's taste was really prominent. The plain naan had a little 'sweetness' to it, which made it tasty, while having alone it as well!
The mutton qorma was well cooked, tender meat and all the spices were deep in the meat, well marinated.
And then we wait, for it to be 1.., then came, the most anticipated dish of em all, the 'Mutton Biryani'. Adorable waiters, they made it a point to serve us the first of the biryani lot after a few jokes here and there.
Bright yellow rice with huge chunks of mutton. Now, considering that I'm from the south, having biryanis varying from the malabaris, to the amburs all the way to d hyderabadis; this one's totally different. The rice had the 'pickle' flavor. The meat was cooked well. I, personally, wasn't a fan of the 'pickle' flavor, but I would never say that it was bad! It was definitely cooked to
All this plus a couple of soft drinks added to less than a thousand bucks. Must visit!
