this is what I am thinking about...
A thick, juicy mutton burger. One of those really fat slabs of tender mutton patty, deep-fried to a perfect, golden crisp – coated with a crumbly, tasty, slightly spicy batter.
Filets of fish fried in a batter of besan, chilli powder, and just a little bit of curd.
Juicy, barbecued prawns – glistening with liberal clumps of masala.
The slightly charred, smoky soft, delicately flavoured whole pomfrets.
A large baked dish of creamed rice with strips of bacon and pepperoni and cubes of beef and mutton.
Fried sausages slathered with sour cream and poached eggs.
A long, herbed and perfectly marinated raan – with meat that is so tender that you can scoop it up with a spoon.
A platter of soft, white reshmi kababs.
Spicy, pungent mutton curry with potatoes that have soaked in every trace of flavour of the gravy.
Mutton biryani, with lots and lots of nalli pieces.
An open Spanish omelette with layers of potatoes, mince, bacon, shrimp, smoked salami.
Kheeme, simply boiled and seasoned with dried red chillies, a little bit of crushed garlic.
Gobi paratha with fried egg on top.
Puris stuffed with pureed matar and spicy egg bhurji with lots of onions, chillies and haldi.
A big bowl of paaya.
