don't know where you live in Calcutta, but do yourself a favour. Go to Barrackpore Station. There is a place called Dada Biudir biryani

Its freaking awesome:D:D:D

Unfortunately, Seattle (where I live) for all its good things, has nothing remotely resembling good calcutta biryani :(( :(

Well, dear Antimony , I do not live in Kolkata , I live in a place nearby, and yes I have heard the name of Dada Boudir hotel and their famous Biriyani not Biudi :wink:and their master cook , whose job is to tell their assistants about mixing their masala , the formula , but Paya is a rich meat soup, I'll have to found out in sabir.

Yes :( I feel your sentiments .

Please don't defile this beautiful thread with pics of instant noodles :barf:

had the most amazing meal @ the beautiful Taman Gang

Signature Cocktails were not too my liking stuck to the tried and tested Negronis.

Their Chinese cuisine was awesome, Japanese not so awesome.

For steak lovers they have some awesome Angus beef steaks.

Pesarattu. An Andhra variant of dosa made with pesar-dal (moong-dal with its green skin on). Many restaurants also make it the size of "70 mm dosa" and call it "MLA pesarattu". lol



It doesn't have any filling, and is usually not taken with sambhar. Instead with coconut and ginger chutneys. Its soft side is green instead of white, and the crisp side dark brown. The pesar-dal gives it a nice chunky texture.

I like Paneer Butter Masala with Butter-Naan, it's just yummy combination to eat & to satisfy tongue & fill stomach.


Paneer Butter Masala Recipe :

Ingredients:
125 grams paneer
2/3 drops soya sauce
1 tomato (grind to a fine paste)
1 Tsp tomato puree
2 onions (grind to fine paste)
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 tsp Dhania Powder (coriander powder)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 cloves
1 tsp cashews
1 Cinnamon (dalchini) stick
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
3 Tsp Yogurt
coriander leaves
4-5 Tsp butter
Salt

Method:
1. Grind cloves, cinnamon to fine powder
2. Heat oil, fry few paneer cubes on medium heat until very light brown. Set the paneer pieces aside.
3. Grate remaining paneer and keep it aside
4. Heat oil or butter, fry onions, ginger garlic paste, for 3 minutes add 2 or 3 drops of soya sauce.
5. Add tomato paste and puree and simmer for 5 minutes.
6. Add cashews, Dhania powder, Cumin powder, garam masala powder, salt,chilli powder, extra butter and masala powder from step 1.
7. Add yogurt and stir until gravy becomes thick. Add fried paneer cubes, grated paneer add 1/2 -1 cup water and simmer for 5 minutes , until all the flavour is absorbed into paneer.
8. Serve hot garnished with grated paneer and few coriander leaves with Butter Naan.


Butter Naan Recipe :

Ingredients

* 3 cups all purpose flour
* ½ cup unsalted butter, cold
* 1 cup plain yogurt
* 3 tablespoons of hot water
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 2 teaspoons active dry yeast (Make sure its freshly bought store yeast and not an opened one)
* 1 ½ teaspoons salt
* 1 egg (leave if vegetarian)
* 2 teaspoons chaat masala mixed with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

Method

In a large bowl add the 3 cups of flour and butter. With your hands, blend the butter into the flour until it forms coarse crumbs. You can do this in a blender as well, but the rest if the procedure when worked with hands gives a better texture to the dough.
Stir water and yeast until yeast is completely dissolved. Now make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the yogurt, sugar, egg, salt and yeast mixture.
Knead into the flour and until the whole dough collects into a mass. It will be wet and sticky.

Wipe your hands clean and oil them. Now knead the dough with the oiled hands until smooth and satiny, for about 10 minutes; oiling your hands more if required. The dough is still very soft and pliable.

Cover the bowl and let the dough rest until doubled in volume; about 4 hours.
Punch down the dough, knead for a minute and divide into 16 equal portions.
With a rolling pin, quickly roll out each ball into a 5 inch round. With your fingers, stretch each round into a 5-7 inch oval.

Cooking in the Oven:

Preheat the oven to 260 C or to the maximum heat.If you have a baking stone; place it in the oven. Arrange a few of the naans in a single layer on the ungreased baking sheets or directly on the baking stone. And bake until they are puffed and brown, 4-5 minutes.

Repeat with the remaining naans. Keep the baked naans aside. Naans can be pre made and kept warm wrapped in a cloth and inside bread box/any other covered container.Before serving, preheat broiler to maximum heat. Transfer a few of the naans to the broiler pan and broil for 15-20 seconds to brown the tops.

You can also brown the tops on the gas stove; hold the naans with the tongs and place them directly over the flame for about 10 seconds. Repeat with remaining breads.Brush the tops lighly with chaat masala oil if desired.Serve hot.

Cooking on Gas Stove:

Heat an iron skillet on high heat. On one side of the rolled out naan, apply water all around. Place the water side on the skillet and quickly invert the skillet showing it directly on the flame, as shown in the picture. Don’t let the flame touch the naan.

After about a minute, you will notice that the naan starts to puff and brown. At this point, turn the skillet over, keep aside. Remove the naan from the skillet and with the help of tongs, place the other side of the naan directly over the flame for about 10-15 seconds.

Once browed; brush the tops lighly with chaat masala oil if desired and serve immediately.Source : Butter Naan - These naans are so delicious that you can have it as a tea time snack as well or serve : ArchanaDoshi blogs on sulekha, Food blogs, ArchanaDoshi blog from india

Natukodi, a chicken gravy dish from Rayalaseema. It may not look like much, but tastes insanely great with steamed rice. Hyderabadis can catch it at Rayalaseema Ruchulu (Tastes of Rayalaseema) in Masab Tank area.
