Muraqqa- the Indian restaurant (Media Launch)

Where: Muraqqa, the Indian restaurant, Rajouri Garden New Delhi

What: Media Launch

Price: On request

West Delhi has its own ‘Fine-Dining’ or rather ‘White-Dining’ restaurant. Recently launched Muraqqa is an amalgamation of authentic Indian-Mughlai Restaurant, based on the Arabian theme this place has a very subtle yet different feel of its own which you probably wouldn’t find in any North-Indian or rather a Punjabi restaurant of west Delhi. Decked up entirely in white this restaurant is spacious enough for a small get-together. The owner has diligently designed the entire place keeping the Arabian culture in mind but at the same time you will see the staff dressed in Indian turban and traditional dress.

Once i was made comfortable on my table, one of the staff came and scattered rose petals on my table which again was a new thing it honestly gave a royal feeling also there was an add-on at the event, the Sufi music playing “Live” while we were enjoying our food. Soon i was given a long menu which was especially selected for the event.

An assorted menu consisting of Mocktails, Starters (veg & non-veg), main course (veg & non-veg) followed by dessert. The lunch started with Fresh lime frozen with Khumbh ke Gilawat, Anjeer ke kebab and Esphani kebab. There was a choice of soups both veg and non-veg Bahar-e-sabz and Murg kali mirch shorba respectively. But i chose to have the mocktails considering the dry and hot weather of Delhi.

Next came Virgin Mojito, this drink is the best option to judge the bar tender and i must say this drink got 10/10 from me, a perfect taste and quantity of each ingredient. For main course i opted for Murg Lababdar and Dal Makhani with Butter Naan. Murg Lababdar a very basic recipe you that you get everywhere in Delhi but i would like to draw your attention here, Do Not take this dish as a regular one because this dish had such strong flavor of spices and still not spicy at all. At the same time Dal Makhani was nothing unusual, you can skip this if you want to. Breads were soft and chewy and not hard at all. For dessert i chose a simple vanilla ice-cream.

FOOD

Khumbh ke Gilawat– Kebabs made with mushrooms and served on a small khasta roti, which was again an unusual style of serving. The kebab’s were really delicious and soft, this was my first time with this dish and i highly recommend it.

Esphani kebab-Chicken chunks baked in tandoor made with spices

Anjeer ke kebab– Kebab’s that are made of Anjeer, yes pure anjeer!! i can assure you that these kebab’s are one of its kind and something you wouldn’t want to miss for anything.

Murg Lababdar- a traditional mughlai dish made with Arabian style and without being extra spicy, juicy chicken chunks and thick gravy makes this dish different from a regular Murg Lababdar that you get at any punjabi restaurant in Delhi.

 Dal Makhani- a regular dal makhani that you can get anywhere in Delhi. Avoidable, there’s a lot more on the menu that you can try than dal.

 DRINKS

Fresh Lime Frozen– you all must have had fresh lime soda but this one is a bit different, not only it’s frozen but also has a punch to it which tantalize your taste buds.

Virgin Mojito– perfectly made and tastes really good.

NOTE- the main highlight of the menu remained the assorted sauces or chutneys, 6 different chutneys were served in the beginning and they won my heart instantly. Tomato-Onion, Pineapple, Salsa, Dip Garlic, Khajoor and Green Mint.
