Kolkata: Getting a bit too chilly for cornflakes and milk? Go for a royal Mughlai breakfast instead at a food festival here, as the mercury dips lower and lower.
The 'Royal Mughlai Breakfast' festival being served at the Shiraz Golden Restaurant showcases around 10 Mughlai delicacies which are extremely popular with the Afghan residents of the eastern metropolis.
Adhering to tradition, organisers of the gastronomic event are offering some well-known dishes like Zabaan (tongue), Kalla, Maghaz and Paya as part of the winter treat.
"The spices and methods used for the preparation of the cuisines are different and are largely dependent on the process of cooking," said Ishtiaque Ahmed, partner, Shiraz Restaurants Pvt Ltd.
Other items include Gosht Dal, Gosht Stew, Gosht Special Stew, Gosht Keema, Gosht Liver, Gosht Paya, Gosht Kalla and Patal Gosht among others. Breakfast timings are from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Ahmed said the portions are generous and are hot off the stove, so the juicy and warm meat can help foodies beat the chill. Quizzed on the recent food-related controversies, Ahmed said for connoisseurs only taste matters, adding, "Controversies and business are separate issues.”
