The Great Indian Kebab Festival – Desi Treat at Copper Chimney! — Reviewed!

Copper Chimney was launched few months ago and I was overwhelmed by the quality of food and the class service they had to offer. Copper Chimney is a pioneer of true flavours of North Indian Food and striking interiors. I always love the warmth they show to their patrons. Apart from the classic menu of endless charcoal grill recently they are hosting 'The Great Indian Kebabs Festival'. Kebabs are basically grilled meat or veggies in many variants.

Limited menu in the Kebabs festival helps you to choose right and avoid confusion. As they say, Time Inspired. Coal Fired. The marination on the Kebabs are kept overnight and char grilled to perfection. 5 dishes each for Vegetarians and Non-vegetarians and trust me it is a grand 'desi' treat. You can choose from Kababs like 'Kashmiri Paneer, 'Sialkoti Aloo', 'Dilli ki lal tikki', 'Masala Tandoori Wings', 'Nimbo Mirch Macchi’, and 'Baluchi Chicken'.

We had our evening started with the refreshing mocktails - Kala Khatta and Mango Martini. Both were fresh and delish. We were looking to devour some lip-smacking dishes from the festival.

Out of surprise, our evening started with the Copper Kadak Roomali Roti. A version of Karari Roti. Huge bowl shaped Crispy Roomali Roti topped with chopped onions, tomatoes, coriander and spices to give it a very tangy, spicy taste. Edges were bit chewy but overall the dish was scrumptious just like masala papad.

We opted for Tandoori Mushroom and my first reaction was "WOW!" Stuffed Mushrooms (Rs.335) generously marinated with cheese, tandoori spices and grilled to perfection. That marination was so lip-smacking and was overloaded with flavours. It was heavy and rich in taste. Highly recommended!

Next dish that caught my attention was the Dilli ki Lal Tikki. I assumed Lal Tikki to be beetroot and was pleasantly surprised to find the goodness of beetroot and Indian gooseberries and mild spices in it. Soft, gooey, beautiful red color of beet from inside and crispy outside. Bit oily but the taste was nice. Our suggestion was duly noted.

Didn't try any paneer dish but I am sure it too must be scrumptious. Post heavy starters, we had to skip our main course and try the desserts. Dessert menu is limited with the Indian sweets. We tried their signature Muzaffar - a vermicelli pudding. The rich, thick milk rabdi with loads of dry fruits topped with roasted vermicelli. Ideally vermicelli or sevai is supposed to be completely mixed with the milk base nevertheless, presentation and overall the taste won! A must try!

People do try their absolutely lip-smacking kebabs and share your experience in the comments below.
