Today I am going to share with you an exceptional experience that I have tried few days ago.
A Royal Experience!
I was invited to try Jodhpur – Indian Royal Dining that is located at Murooj Rotana in Downtown Dubai.
I arrived at the hotel and I asked the bell boy where is Jodhpur – Royal Dining and he told me that we will go to Jodhpur in a buggy car 🙂
We were very warmly welcomed by Ms. Susan the Guest Relations Manager that took us to our table.
Chef Pradeep Khullar came and introduced himself to us and explained us about the cuisine that we were going to eat and he explained to us every dish he has served us.
I told Chef Pradeep Khullar “Chapeau Bas” (hats off) for his creations.
Only one word to describe the food we ate:
This was the best ever experience I had so far. The food was so tasty and plenty of flavor.
I recommend you to visit Jodhpur – Royal Dining as soon as you can to experience what I did.
You will never forget!
I started my dining journey with the special mocktail they made for me.
A homemade mocktail with Guava with Berries and chaat spices.
It was completely new for me, I had never before drunk a juice with spices.
Jeera Khari with Herb Yoghurt
Indian puff, dredged with caraway seeds & served with herb youghurt topped with Pink peppercorns.
It was very nice, I loved the presentation!
Macaron stuffed with tangy filling & served as chaat with all the elements like sweet, sour, crunchy, chewy.
Mmm so tasty and original!
Beef Short Ribs, Aam Papad Glaze
Braised for many hours & then crispy fried short ribs tossed in reduction made with Aam Papad, Tamarind & chilly paste.
It was one of my favorite, It was tender from inside and crispy from outside.
I was astonished by the taste as well.
You have to try it!
Achari Jhinga, Pan Grilled, Beet Carpaccio
Pan grilled tiger prawns marinated in lemon pickle marinade & served with beetroot carpaccio.
It was mouthwatering!
Raan, Ghost Pepper Brushed, Sesame Lavash
8 hours braised lamb leg & finished in tandoor marinated with Chipotle Cream.
Laban & Ricotta Kabab, Rose Ash
Crispy fried melange of Hung Curd & Ricotta, coated with Rose Ash. Served cold from the centre to allow a contrast in the dish. Perhaps the world’s first kabab served cold from inside.
It looks like a piece of art and I don’t tell you about the taste, you have to try it to know what I am speaking about!
Mango, Cranberry & Kaffir Lime Sorbet
Sorbet to clean your palate so that you get ready for main course. Served in toy pressure cooker made with Fresh Alphonso puree spiked with kaffir lime leaves & de-hydrated cranberries.
Garlic and herbs naan
Crisp Kulcha stuffed with cottage cheese, onions, chiiles & cumin seeds cooked in tandoor & crushed with hands so that you can’t count how much are you eating & since it is crisp so you keep eating till you are full.
The best ever, so crunchy and tasty that you can’t control yourself when eating it!
Murgh Maska, Roasted Chicken, Butter Gravy, Paprika Quail Egg
Classic butter chicken simmered in tomatoes based gravy laced with butter & cream.
This is favorite dish in the Indian Cuisine, yum yum yum!
Butter Lobster, Konkani Curry, Kokam Powder
Tandoor cooked lobsters served over Goan red rice & topped up with curry made with tamarind pulp & jaggery spiked up with Konkani Chillies, from western part of India.
Saffron Jalebi, Mascarpone Rabdi, Gold Dust
Crisp miniature Jalebis accompanied with Mascarpone Rabdi. Dredged with Golden Dust.
When I saw that, I said Wow! Amazing presentation.
I was so full when I reach the desserts and I was planning just to try it and eat a few of the Jalebis, but guess what happened?
I just found out that I ate them all, one after one, couldn’t stop 🙂
Lotus Treacle Tart, Salted Butter Scotch Ice Cream
Our take on classic British Treacle tart flavored with Belgian Lotus biscuits, served with salted butter scotch ice cream.
I will be going back again with my friends to let them experience what I did and also because I want to re-experience it again and again…
I loved so much the food, tasty tasty tasty!
Thank you Chef Pradeep for this experience!
