Must haves: Mutton kakori kebabs
When hunger kicks in and you’re craving to binge onto some mouth watering kebabs or are wanting to open a handi filled with some aromatic biryani, then all you need to do is pick up your phone and wait for the order to arrive at your doorstep.
Majeed’s is one such delivery outlet located at Vasant Arcade, that offers some delectable Mughlai and North Indian food at a price that wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket.
A few days back when hunger was getting the better of me, I decided to order from Majeed’s. The order arrived on time and was neatly packaged in individual boxes. I opted for their much talked about mutton kakori kebabs along with tandoori chicken and chicken biryani.
With smokey aroma combined with melt-in-mouth texture and an explosion of spices, their kakori kebabs come along with green chutney and onions, and are without doubt a must have. The tandoori chicken also turned out to be rather good with perfectly cooked chicken morsels marinated in spices. The chicken biryani arrived in a traditional handi, raised my expectations from the dish and unfortunately, didn’t meet them. Since the handi had a paint coat over it, the rice got an unpleasant flavour that couldn’t be mellowed down with the raita. I’d recommend them to either offer the biryani is a regular container or in a handi that does not have a coating over it. Also, pairing the biryani with mirchi ka salan would be helpful for those who enjoy spicy food.
Confession: Overall, the kebabs turned out to be great and I would be looking forward to their other kebabs as well. The biryani had jitters, but if corrected, would work just fine.
