Weekend Food Review – Khana Khazana
A cloudy evening later brought rain for us which made our Saturday evening wonderful. We went to my one of my most favorite restaurants Khana Khazana, I am visiting this restaurant from last more than 10 years. They are changed with time but one thing which is same is their quality food, excluding their chicken chowmin which I was an admirer once. Khana Khazana is a part of Hotel Dream Palace which is situated in the same compound.
…..Butter Chicken: I love to have it here because they prepare it differently. Generally, a very basic method of making butter chicken is either boil and cook chicken in a thick red gravy and butter, splash some cream over it and ready (hey! I just used short words, this is not a real way to make it) But, at Khana Khazana, they make it with roasted chicken, it is authentically Rajasthani way of preparing butter chicken. Now, imagine the combination of two diverse tastes, one a roasted chicken and other is thick spicy gravy. If you haven’t tried it then have it. I strongly recommend you butter chicken of Khana Khazana. You won’t come looking to bash me. But remember, they have pretty good quantity in half plate so if you are two adults then go for half butter chicken, if you are 2 adults with one child then still go for half.
…..Dal Tadka: This one was extra ordinary mouth watering, splendid, wonderful, elegant and classy dal I had very less in my life. I loved the way it was served in a traditional handi, and then it was so damn yummy that I first time felt dal had overpowered the chicken. Its rich aroma of species with a combination of charcoaled like fragrance made a deep impact on my senses. I forgot I had a friend with me. Sorry mate!. Dal is something which is eaten by all class of people in India. Dal is in fact a God of Indian food. And Dal Tadka of Khana Khazana is king of all Dals. Their butter nan was not that good in quality and quantity, after having some 2-3 butter nans we ordered tandoori rotis and felt it better than those nans we had. Rice made our dal tadka complete. But it was too costly for plain rice to be. Damage! Rs. 398/-
