Do take your own plastic bag. The guy sometimes runs out of them.

No idea about its calorific value.
But I have had no issues using it.

I don't think you can do this in any park.
Thanks for the info. I will try it.

I attended a family party over there.. it's decent food and crowded though over weekends... I guess this is one of best place to eat in that area..
other one, I tried Shilpi (near Ashta Lakshmi temple lane) also good..

they have separate bar with projector...

Thanks to Hyd_traveller for posting grill picture.. I got the idea about grill now... Is it LPG based? that you can refill?

Yes, it is LPG based and the refills are easily available down the lane from Delhi Mithai in Ameerpet apart from other places in the city.

Kashimir Food Festival in Ohri's Tadka until Feb-end.

Apart from Meat Roganjosh, never tried any Kashmiri food, would be interesting to do that.

Chinese New Year Festival at Aroma's of China until Feb-end

It's been ages since i had good chinese grub. Hence, this too sounds interesting

Anyone has feedback on pricing for above, makes my life easier. You see building a case for my sunday ritual dinner out with wifey

Had a lot of wazwan (Kashmiri) cuisine in Srinagar especially Rishtae / Gushtaba / Kashmiri Naan and Roganjosh.

Original Wazwan dishes are made with Lamb and not Goat so may not find flavour with lot of us. Also the food is slightly sweeter in taste.

We had all this at the best restaurant in Srinagar - Mughal Darbar but somehow didn't enjoy the taste. So try it out to know more.

AFAIK, Lamb and Goat are the same. Lamb is younger, tender and much better in taste than a goat.

What is different is Lamb/Goat AND Sheep

God, I am talking so in detail being a veggie at home

Hard-core NV's please confirm

Avi, I think you got it the other way around. Lamb is a young sheep. (Checked Wikipedia just now )

Some URLs:

Goat meat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lamb and mutton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Enjoy your Kashmiri food now.

Cheers,

As already stated by Ardy, Lamb / Sheep and Goat are totally different. Over here goat is sold under the name of Mutton. Lamb is very rare to find and is only available in abundance in colder climes of Northern and NE-India. Also another difference is that lamb meat is more fibrous

You do find Lamd here in hyderabad. Most of the eateries avoid serving lamb as its way too small and would surely make a good dent in their pocket.

Another reason not many serve is that it is hard to digest and may leave people with upset stomachs

I still remember the lovely Biryani I had a couple of years ago. The biryani was stuffed inside a tender lamb, which was cooked as a whole. Wish someone hosts a party soon with a dish of that sort.

I thought its the other way around. Lamb is tender so easily digestable

I had this dish in Ohris. Its called Raan-e-Shaan or something and its soaked in rum overnight to give it perfect marination before it's presented for us to take it apart.
