MMMMM BARBECUE! Indian inspired, charcoal barbecue restaurant comes to Nottingham!
Here’s hoping for an Indian summer as this September will see Indian inspired charcoal barbecue restaurant, Burra Khana, open its doors in Nottingham. With a menu centred on small plates, food is inspired by the streets of Delhi and Jaipur as well as the traditional techniques of Middle Eastern cooking in countries such as Persia, Turkey and Lebanon.
Dishes on offer include Taley Aloo Ki Chaat – a fried fresh potato in a delicate combination of green peppers, tomato and spices on a bed of iceberg lettuce – or the Panipuri – a round hollow puri crisp filled with flavoured water and potato. All the different kind of bread will be freshly made, including a selection of Naan, Roti and Potato Kulcha. For a lighter bite, guests can enjoy a wide variety of Indian-style salads as well as fragrant pickles, chutneys and sauces.
The other main influence of the menu, coming from the Middle East, will allow guests to discover a selection of unique skewers. The skewers will be cooked on an authentic charcoal pit including dishes such as Chooza Tandoori, featuring a baby poussin, marinated in fragrant yoghurt, malt vinegar, ginger and garlic paste and a plethora of exotic spices. The meat will be then skewered and char-grilled, to be served with a sprinkle of kebab masala.
Other highlights include Jhangiri Jeenga – a jumbo king prawn kabab marinated in a yoghurt-based paste, topped-off with ground carom seeds, red chillies, turmeric and garam masala, skewered and cooked traditionally in a clay oven. Raunak-E-Sheek showcases a blend of various spices with mutton, wrapped in peppers and skewered then chargrilled over charcoal.
The cocktail menu at Burra Khana features an array of unique signature cocktails such as the refreshing lassis and Indian-inspired contemporary cocktails using botanical ingredients. Guests can also expect classic Masala chai teas.
