The Yakhnis – with choices like nadru, mutton, and chicken – are all light, aromatic, and oh-so-flavorful, cooked with a delicate blend of spices and curd. Rice lovers, rejoice! The Mutton and Chicken Yakhni Pulao will make your heart sing, with meat cooked in its own juices and a medley of spices. Then there’s the Mutton Rista, with hand-pounded mutton balls, and the tender Chicken Kaliya, simmered in a rich, golden gravy.

Now, let’s talk dessert! End your meal on a sweet note with the creamy Phirni, a thick rice pudding garnished with dry fruits, served chilled. Or try the aromatic Modur Pulao, sweet saffron-flavored rice cooked with an abundance of dry fruits.
