I was lucky enough to avail this opportunity of trying the delicious spreads from Asah’s Original and i must state that these creations are uniquely Asha’s, and do not claim to belong to any particular region of India. Rather, they are a conglomerate mix of the best condiments from all corners of the Indian subcontinent.
So here’s a delicious spread from the Kebab & Briyani menu straight from Asha Tai.
A delicious spread of Condiments from Mint, Tomato with Dry Fruits, Pickles to Sweet Papaya Chutney and Papad to start kick off your meal.
Kofta Kham Khatai, prepared with crispy fried bottle gourd with potato hash patties, pan tossed with tamarind chutney, ginger and fennel. I never thought a bottle gourd kebab would taste so much better, i was always skeptical of even trying it but this totally changed my entire taste buds as i really found it very delicious. In love with Bottle Gourd from now.
This is for all Veggie lovers, Kebabs get all fusionized over here at Asha’s
Bhatti Ka Chaap, came under a hidden smoked drama, the chicken all tender most moist marinated with flavorful mix of spices and yogurt, grilled to perfection. In love with this succulent and delicious bites of the Chaap and served with a delightful Mint chutney. My hubby was in love with this Kebab and i saw him eating happily all the pieces in just a fraction of seconds.
My first drink of the day, and it really MADE DAY!!! Truly Berry, done with fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and muddled with mint leaves and lemonade. What a gaudy effect it left on every sip, the calm reddish color with the greenish leaves was so very appealing to the eyes and refreshing to my taste buds.
My hubby ordered his all time favorite Sweet Lassi, i seems he enjoyed it as it was very light and the drink could be easily sipped through the straw.
Kadak aur Reshmi Sheekh Kebab, now this is served in two ways, One in crispy fried and stuffed with cheese and the other char grilled in the tandoor and flavored with cinnamon, cardamon and clove. My personal hit was the filling with Cheese as it left a very succulent effect o the minced chicken. Served with a mint chutney and grilled onions which was one of the best onions i have ever tasted.
Jheenga Japlari, known as ”JEWEL OF THE SEA”. Its deep fried king prawns stuffed with cheese and prawn chunks, coated with bread crumbs and served with tomato sun dried chutney. Prawns stuffed with prawns with cheese, Can you Imagine how delicious it was? Yes you can if you dine at Asha’s before the 1h Oct. Delectable bites of divine taste, generous filling of cheese and prawns chunks and i ended up having the entire plate.
The Tomato Sun Dried chutney played a very flavorful trick to the Prawns.
As its a Kebab & Briyani promotion, we were served some of the finest delicacies and a delectable spread of Briyani across the whole India.
Chamandi Prawn Briyani, prawns cooked in coconut cilantro pesto with lemon juice and coconut milk and finished on dum with ghee. The flavors were playing delightfully and it left a lemony aroma on every bite. The prawns were cooked enough to give you a juicy texture along with a coriander infused greenish Briyani. Served on a royal silver Briyani holder,reminding you that you are at Asha’s. The look of it was WOW from me as it had shades of Orange and Greenish rice with the succulent prawns.
Calicut Gosht Briyani, prepared with home style Lamb with onion and yogurt, spiced with star anise and cinnamon, dum cooked with ghee rice. This was my personal favorite as when Briyani comes to my mind it has to be Lamb. Succulent and moist pieces of perfectly spiced infused lamb on a bed of delightfully flavored briyani.
Both me and my Hubby’s favorite dish of the day as we could feel meat living its flavor and aroma on the bed of briyani served. It seems the briyani had so delightfully embraced the lamb meat leaving its aftermath affect so well. Served on a copper briyani holder giving a new elegant look to it.
Desserts are on its way said the lovely host of our day!!
Gulab Jamun and Kesar Pista Ice Cream, O WOW WHAT A TREAT!! Bites of happiness with a cold and a hot effect. The hot gulab jamuns on a creamy bed of dipping was everything you want at a fine dining place. Piping hot but deliciously delectable. The Kesar Pista too left a smile on my face after every bite as it left full flavors from it.
