Non Vegetarian Menu Q 110

Amritsari Fish (3 pcs)

Sheekh Kebab served on Naan bread

Ras Malai


Amritsari Fish:  Named after the city where it originated and is sold on street corners, this easy fried fish dish is a great appetizer or side dish to complement the main course.  Fish is prepared with lot of spices and seasonings to make it mouth watering.  Boneless fish marinated in a traditional Amritsari (North Indian) way with egg, yoghurt, thymol seeds, spices and deep fried.

Sheekh Kebab: This item probably does not need much introduction.  Sheekh Kebabs, pronounced 'ka-bab' in Hindi, can be served as a side dish with an Indian meal, as a starter or as a main meal with either a salad or a naan. The name Seekh comes from being cooked on a seekh or a stick (a skewer).

Naan is a round flatbread made of white flour.  Naan is a staple accompaniment to hot meals in India.

Navratan Korma

Ras Malai 

Navratan Korma   Navratan Korma is a popular Indian vegetable recipe.  Navratan Korma is a mildly flavored creamy dish made with essentially 9 kinds of vegetables. The word "nav" means nine.  The actual recipe is quite time consuming , mixed vegetables-chopped, ghee, ginger, finely chopped and ground with garlic,  onions, cloves, pepper corns, cinnamon, cardamoms, salt, chili powder,  blanched almonds, coconut milk, coriander leaves and almonds-slivered for garnish.  The end result is  finger licking good.  

Ras  Malai originated somewhere in the coastal parts of the Indian states of Orissa, West Bengal and Bihar.  Ras malai consists of sugary, cream to yellow-colored balls (or flattened balls) of paneer soaked in sweetened, thickened, creamy milk. The milk is flavored with pistachios, saffron, and rosewater.
