Jyran in Sofitel Mumbai BKC is always known for lip-smacking Indian food. Sofitel Mumbai BKC is back with this year’s Mohammed Ali Road themed menu. These special dishes are available till 16th June in this holy month of Ramadan, both for lunch and dinner. Along with their unusual offerings in the Signature Jyran menu, there are special Iftari delicacies that will give you the same thrill of eating at Mohammed Ali Road, but at the comfort and luxury of Jyran. Of course, the expertise of Chef Shadab Ahmed Qureshi plays its charm in every dish served!
The signature Paya Yakhni Shorba is our all-time favourite. Meltingly soft lamb trotters are cooked overnight in a very light soup flavoured with saffron. This dish itself is so good that you wonder whether you actually need any other dish after that at all.
The appetizers were from the Signature Jyran menu. The Khau Galli Murgh Tikka was a delicious dish indeed: succulent chicken pieces marinated in vinegar, spices and hung curd and cooked in a clay oven.
The Shahi Galawat ke Kebab was soft and juicy. The meat was like cotton and full of flavour. It was one of the best dishes that we tried at Jyran. I loved the blend of spices in the lamb patty. The all-time-favourite Galouti is light and not overpowering at all. Even the Shammi Kebab tasted just perfect!
Tandoori Jhinga was bang on. Plump tiger prawns tasted scrumptious with hung curd marination and the right kind of cooking. A balance of spices did the rest of the trick, I guess! The prawns had an earthy, smoky aroma as these were cooked in a clay oven. Even the Macchi Tawa Fry was cooked perfectly. The fish was very fresh and we enjoyed every bite of this.
In the mains, we tried the Paneer Butter Masala, which had mint-laced cottage cheese in a tomato-based gravy. The Daal-e-Khaas is a total comfort food. Black lentils are cooked overnight in a clay oven and finished with butter and cream.
I am not too fond of liver, but the Gurda Masala was quite up my alley. Simple, homely preparation of mutton liver in a medium-spicy curry was a welcome change.
The Khichda was a pure delight. Mutton, broken wheat and pulses were perfectly married to each other in this curry. Slivers of fried onions added a bit of sweetness to the dish. The Chicken Biryani was a light, wet biryani: not one of those heavy biryanis loaded with Kewra water. We loved every bite of this simple Biryani. Among the desserts, the Sheer Khurma and the Malpua with Rabdi were impressive.
We had a good Iftari lunch at Jyran, Sofitel Mumbai BKC. Friends, do try out Jyran’s Iftari menu which is on till 16th June. 2019!
