Bukhara style thali/ Naan bukhara/ Indian meal menu

At ITC grand maratha in Mumbai, there is a restaurant from the popular chain Bukhara which is famous for its King size Naan bread served with the other popular dishes like dal makhani, tandoor platters. The ambience and spirit around is opulent to suit the hotel it is hosted at but the food is rustic. I suppose that is how they decided on serving the usual Naan fare in king size to match up. Although I loved the food and everything about the restaurant it is definitely not economical to visit the place often.
Yes you got it right. I decided to copy it at home. It ofcourse was scaled down to match my home’ decor but only in size, the taste and everything ..ahem..was better.Indeed.

Menu for the day
King Size Tandoor Naan (my son is the king here, so it is probably 3 times smaller the size it is served at ITC)
Dal Makhani
Achari Paneer Tikka
Mishti Doi

These are baked in oven , tandoor style directly placed on the racks. They were lipsmacking. Not the stretchy one’s that are served in restuarants these days loaded with butter

Watch space for recipe – next week

Dal Makhani
One of my most favorite style of dal. Check the recipe here.Is far simpler than it appears to be

Achari Paneer tikka
Does the name not sound interesting and tasty? The dish is at par with the name. Check here

Mishti Doi
Agree it sounds a little misplaced in the otherwise punjabi fare. But then who said I do things conventionally. It was a good accompaniment in the dish to satiate the sweet tooth.
There is no recipe to make it. If you have store bought mishti doi available, you have to set sweetened reduced milk using it , just the way you do for curds. I will try for a real recipe some day and post it here.
