New Delhi's Punjabi By Nature

Kastoori Kebab

The name of this place may sound a bit like two hip-hop artists coming together, but it was actually a rather upscale chain serving Punjabi food. My colleagues got me this kastoori kebab, which I didn't do a good job of putting in perspective in the photo, as the thing was pretty thick (imagine filling a sock and you get the idea). And it certainly was delicious, with tender bits of chicken seasoned and grilled with a nice smoky aroma, reminding me a bit of Bukhara. Indeed, they even had a dal here that was so creamy that it seemed very similar to Bukhara's too. And we didn't even have to fight for a reservation here.
