newznew (Chandigarh) : Stop for a second and imagine India without the contribution of the Mughals. Apart from dotting the country with architectural marvels, they also had a strong influence on our cuisine. What we call Indian food today is heavily influenced by Mughlai food. Recipes that they brought with them and adapted using local ingredients, spices and craft have been kept alive over the years. The food is rich, aromatic and full of flavour.
To offer Chandigarhians the best of Mughlai cuisine, Hotel Oyster is organising a Mughlai Food Festival at its exclusive Sky Lounge Bar & Restaurant. Tricity residents can relish the truly mughlai cuisine and take a culinary trip down the lanes of Lucknow & Agra, savour the mouth watering Awadhi delicacies in the enchanting rooftop ambience with live music.
The meat dishes served all over the lanes of Agra & Lucknow were once the specialty of royal food. These cities house restaurants, food corners that serve the best Mughlai cuisine in India. The baked meat, bread and chicken are the best in the menu. Kababs/ tandoor is one of the most delicious things offered . All the goodness of food that these royal cities offer, are brought to Chandigarh during this “Mughlai Food Fest”, with authentic and traditional Mughlai items meticulously prepared by a Master Chef Hassan, who is a specialist in Mughlai cuisine & has over 20 years of experience in making Mughlai, North Indian and Tandoori dishes.
