Indi Kitchen a newly opened North Indian Join. To activate my taste buds I headed there.
It’s a small outlet located in Lokhandwala.
They have indoor as well as outdoor seating, however the seating indoors has a long narrow table attached to the wall with a few high chairs and outdoors have long tables.
The place introduces the Subway or the “Wok it yourself” concept to Indian food, however Indi Kitchen serves Indian food instead of Chinese which was something different than the usual.
The first step is of deciding your base, Roomali roll, rice box or naan bowl with options of Chicken, Mutton Veg.
The second step involves choosing vegetables like carrots, onions, peas, corn, capsicum and mushroom.
The third step is choosing your protein, Aloo tikka, Malai paneer, Chicken tikka, Paneer Tikka, Malai chiken, Seekh kabaa.
And the last step involves choosing your gravy, Bhuna masala, Tikka masala, Madras Gravy, Makhani, Palak and Triple Teekha.
Along with this the menu offers Indulgence like Biryani- veg and non-veg and Dal makhani.
And Desserts!!!! A new concept of Chocolate Samosa.
I was handed a form to fill in and I selected my base, protein, greens and gravy.
Veg roomali roll with paneer tikka and triple teeka gravy- The roomali roll was yum and had all my desired veggies. The paneer was soft. The gravy tasted good.
Naan bowl with chicken tikka and bhuna masala gravy- Whip, wham, sizzle, fry and I see my Chicken Tikka plus a bit of Bhuna gravy with Roomali Roti get made in front of me. This allowed me to see what goes into me grub. This is an interesting exercise for those who wish to see how Chicken Tikka is made. The Chicken was really good and the quality mimicked the grub found in North Indian fine dines for INR 160.
Chicken Biryani- It was one of the finest Biryani preparations that I have ever had. Smooth aromatic rice with succulent pieces of well cooked chicken. Topped with fried onions, greens and the best spices – This item exceeded my expectations. Indi makes a good stop for a Biryani fanatic. The portion size was quite generous at INR 149.
Chocolate Samosa- was the lone dessert on the menu. It was intriguing since Chocolate Samosas sound a bit, different. But if one can plug chocolate into bagels, doughnuts and croissants – then samosas should not be a big problem, yes? Well the answer is a mixed one. As a dessert, this fusion works. For INR 49, this item is worth the novelty.
Indi Kitchen seems to be built on a self-service model. Though, I was served my items by a server.
The pricing is quite low at the moment. For the food they serve, I’d say it’s one hell of a good deal. Like all good things, it’s likely that the prices may go up in the future so it seems logical to hog as much grub as possible now!!!
I know, I will!!!
