Shafiqs Taste of India
Welcome to Taste of India, an experience of the Indian Cuisine which holds a proud place in the list of distinguished cuisines of the world. Indian food reflects the enormous geo-ethno-cultural diversity of the land as it does the influences of its many ancient rulers - particularly of the Moghul.
This menu has been carefully selected to meet a two-pronged objective: To represent the above diversity and to include the most flavoursome and tasty dishes.
Although the rise of spices( recorded on Sanscript Writings 3,000 years ago) is the common denominator of the Indian dishes and their distinguishing factors when compared with other world cuisines. It is the specific combinations and relative portions of these which give each dish its distinctive flavour and "undertone".....The dishes in this menu, though spicy, are not hot unless otherwise mentioned and, contrary to popular belief - some are rather sweet. Almost all ingredients are fresh and foods are actually cooked upon receipt of the orders. The latter explains why it takes a while to serve the meals. We use no wine, MSG or other food additives or preservatives. The colours are inherent to the spices themselves. Only some dishes are cooked in "ghee" (Clarified butter) while the majority are cooked in vegetable oil.
The following is the list of the herbs, spices and garnishes used: ginger, garlic, turmeric, cumin, black cumin, coriander, cayenne, onion, cardamon, cinnamon, fenugreek, black pepper, mustard seed, clove, bay leaf, coconut, rose water, etc.
We trust, therefore, that your experience will be unique one!
