Kebabs and Kormas are considered to be Nawabi food from Lucknow one that has to be prepared in a certain way to get the flavours flowing. We attended the food festival at Fortune Grazia, Noida, for some delectable kebabs, kormas and mango desserts. The Fortune Inn Grazia in Noida has an ongoing "Kebabs & Qorma" festival from 8th to 24th June. 2018 at the Earthen Oven restaurant. The vegetarian kebabs are as good as the non-vegetarian ones at the ongoing festival - June 8 till June 24.
Celebrating the regal Lucknowi cuisine, veg and non-veg kebabs were delicious and soft, melted in the mouth with an infusion of flavours directly hitting your taste buds and senses. The environment, emotions, the color of the room, and everything going on around can also influence the sensory experience. The decor of the restaurant immediately elevated the whole experience - with colourful kites on the wall to ethnic drape on the ceiling, each element was inviting and refreshing.
Varieties on offer were - Galouti kebab with ulte tawe ka paratha, murg kebab and murg tar korma for non vegetarians and beetoot kebab, dahi ke sholey, veg galouti kebab and paneer tikka for vegetarians that can be relished with the garlic and yogurt and the mint and yogurt dips. Main course on offer was sheer maal, murg korma, dal makhni, shahi raita and salad. The food had the right balance of ghee (they use pure ghee for preparations) and spices.
To round the meal off were sumptuous desserts like aam phirni, mango shahi tukda and paan kulfi - all these with the chef's special touch.
All this was prepared under the able supervision and guidance of Executive Chef Lal Babu Sharma who said, "we take a lot of care to preserve the quality of our product from sourcing raw materials to picking up from the counter." The chef is with the group since the hotel began its operations in Noida. He told us that only the best quality ingredients are used to prepare food. well, the look of the food kind of validated what he said.
