CHUTNEY

To enjoy pan-Indian restaurant Chutney, dine with friends or family… the more the merrier! My friend and I planned dinner and arrived at 9 p.m. after a hard day's work, famished! Having eaten at the hotel's Japanese restaurant Sakura, with its attention to detailing and flavourful cuisine, my expectations were high.

 

Taking the table reserved for us, we perused the menu and appreciated the Chef's variety and diversity; sipping a refreshing cocktail, we left it to him to suggest starters and entrees. After enquiring about our culinary preferences, he sent out papad with an assortment of chutneys: mint- mango - tomato and bellpepper- mushroom- sweet potato- tamarind- peanut. Wow!! The service was efficient and pretty soon dinner began with 'Ajwaini Jhinga'. The tandoori jumbo prawns marinated in carom, saffron and coriander powder was off-the-hook fresh and flavourful! Trust me I never ask for seconds and here I was salivating for more! Up next, we relished 'Shahi Champien'; the melt-in-the-mouth lamb appetizer was sumptuous.

 

The chef then brought us his hot-seller entrees. 'Meen Moilee' — Kerala-style fish in coconut curry, flavored with green chilli, curry leaves and turmeric — was served with steamed rice and the delicious seafood might have received more attention had it not been served alongside the sumptuous 'Roghan Josh' — the slow-cooked lamb shanks flavoured with garlic, ginger and aromatic spices, was tender and spiced to perfection. The perfect rendition of a classic Kashmiri dish. You bet we swopped it up to the last bite with the assorted bread! Though we were stuffed, Chef insisted, how could we leave without dessert? I didn't have much room for sweets but the selection was impressive and we settled for 'Paan Kulfi' and 'Gulab Jamun Sandwich'. The stellar team of Chutney wanted things to end on a sweet note… and it sure did!

 

Reminiscing about the quiet dinner at Chutney, I feel there's a tradition at the restaurants ensconced in Metropolitan Hotel And Spa—ensure diners leave satisfied by a good meal and excellent service. Bon Appetite!
