Once a year comes this time when the true value of food is understood. After fasting was nearly fifteen hours, all you need is something amazing to fulfill your taste buds. And I being married to a total foodie has given me a chance to understand the meaning of good food!
I use to hear about town eating all my life but my father would never take us. It is after my marriage to a bhendi bazaarian who without fail takes me every year to all his favorite joints that are mine too, now!
Noor Mohammadi Hotel was flagged on in the 1923's and that is heritage worth! The food is pure "miya bhai khana" dripping of ghee and butter.
Their food has a special taste that I haven't found anywhere yet. And the owner who sits with us promises that I won't ever. They have special techniques and their cooks are following rules that were passed down from generations. Their authentic taste and recipes are to die for!!!
My personal favorite is the Chicken Hakimi, it is a basic tandoori chicken. A right amount of curd and butter sauce in it. It looks simple and easy but trust me it is only the taste that you won't find elsewhere....
Our main course consists of the very famous and fabulous Nalli Nahari.
It may look too greasy but for that once, you need to forget about the calories and jump right into it.
The sliced ginger and chopped green chilli that just adds on to the taste, the spices are just right and the hot tandoori roti is the best companion to it.
Other main courses like the Chicken Sanju Baba(the bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt inspired the name to this recipe), there is Bheja, Paya, Kheema from the top contenders of their menu.
Are also worth a shot!
They have some veggies and their dal is also pretty sober.
However, i am obsessed upon my favourites and you should really try them once to know you will always repeat your visit.
Noor Mohammadi has a special aura about it in Ramadan. Weekends are crazy but they are always worth the queue. And in the spirit of this amazing festival that goes on for a month. Don't be surprised to find me on the weekends, where I drag my workaholic husband to eat.
