The Great Kebab Factory has revamped and is opening doors to the public at Radisson Blu Kharadi yet again. With a modern approach to their original dishes, they have made an effort to retain the roots but make the dishes more appealing and instagrammable – after all its an #instaworld. TGKF boasts of its speedy service – while it was slow during our preview, it should be up to the mark when they open up.
TGKF opens only for dinners and have a widespread variety of appetisers, 12 to be exact, 8 mains and if there’s room left, you can have desserts.
I was invited for a preview tasting and here’s a brief summary of my experience:
We had the signature Gosht Galouti Kebab served with the Ulte Tave ka Paratha. Minced meat that will melt in your mouth with every bite, what more could you ask for? And guess what, there are 87 spices that go in the making of these kebabs.
The coriander, mint and garlic marinated New Zealand Lamb Chops were quite ecstatic. Succulent and juicy meat with bold flavours had me licking ‘em racks.
The Khoya Aur Badam Bharwan Aloo was very unique and a preparation I had not yet seen in a vegetarian variety. Whole potatoes stuffed with khoya and almonds were tandoored and had a very contrasting yet beautiful taste.
The Paneer Paratdar was the TGKF’s take on a paratha, except there was a stuffing between two layers of paneer. Nonetheless, their take on this dish was quite innovative and appreciated by all.
For mains, I tried the Paneer Nazakat, Dal Factory, Chicken Biryani and Gosht ka Choosa. While the Dal Factory is their signature Dal Makhani, I felt it was not up to the mark as it was low on salt and a bit bland. The Chicken Biryani too needed some improvement in terms of flavours as the masala rice in the biryani wasn’t quite flavourful. The Paneer Nazakat and Gosht ka Choosa turned out to be quite good in fact and were my saviours in the mains.
There were some desserts being served as well like Mango and Saffron Panna Cotta, Chocolate and Ras Malai pastry, Baked Mishti Doi and kulfi, I chose to skip all.
TGKF should be back with a bang and serve all its loyal patrons who have been missing their signature galoutis and dal factory.
A big shout out to Sameer for inviting and Radisson Blu Kharadi for hosting me.
