Drawing inspiration from pages of history, Restaurant Amrit has launched its new menu that is a representation of Mughal influences in our culinary traditions, with an emphasis on the famed “dumpakht.”
The interior of the restaurant is befitting and promotes the regal menu it promises to offer. The beautiful wooden furniture and screen panels, to the warm lighting and paintings — are all reminiscent of a majestic time of grandeur. The ambience is warm and calming where you can choose to take your family or even that special someone to share and experience the food of royals!
Their sabzi-galauti kababs could easily fool a devout meat lover into thinking it is meat, simply because of the unique and rich flavours. And the mahi dum-anari is actually mahi fish cooked in spices and finished off with fresh pomegranate seeds that add just the perfect balance of citric freshness in contrast to the savoury fish that could even fool those who cringe at the thought of fish!
The Noor Mahal Biriyani, a highly recommended main course item, is a fragrant version of the dish with small meatballs. The entire meal can very easily be compared to the experience of falling in love for the first time for your taste buds, one that will leave you reminiscing about it for days to come.
Mohammad Rais Alam and Sanjay Nayak — the Master Chef and Executive Chef respectively of Amrit, are developing the menu and dishes based on Mohammad Rais's specialisations in Awadhi and Hyderabadi cuisine. Amrit's previous menu consisted of options Dhakaites are accustomed to, but the recent changes have been made keeping in mind the climate, local palate of customers who are more health conscious, and expats, without compromising on the five-hundred-year-old heritage of the dishes that they promise to serve. Both the chefs feel that the latest additions will create awareness and an appreciation of the authenticity of the meals.
