Regional Specialty Dishes Highlight of New Menu at Zafran Indian Bistro
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Zafran Indian Bistro, the award-winning contemporary Indian restaurant, has launched its much-awaited new menu, now available at Mirdif City Centre and Dubai Marina Mall.
A labor of love, the menu is the result of more than a year of perfecting regional recipes, countless trials and tasting sessions by the restaurant’s highly trained team of chefs to ensure that the final product stays true to Zafran’s tried and tested philosophy—no fuss, simple great tasting food.
“Zafran is a place where guests expect quality Indian food made right by passionate people in a relaxed, inviting ambience and once again we have delivered. Fans of the brand and new diners will love the new menu’s combination of signature dishes alongside new, specialty dishes that celebrate the diversity of Indian cuisine,” said Rakshak Puri, General Manager, Zafran.
Menu highlights include the Zafran Haandi Korma and Dum Ka Murgh cooked with spices that are ground on site in the Zafran Kitchen. Loyal guests will be pleased to know that the Zafran Feast, a perfectly done kebab platter fit for royalty is now a mainstay on the menu by popular demand.
New starters include a hearty Seafood Soup and an addictive Masala Fried Chicken. There’s also a delightful Chaat Platter, consisting of traditional savoury treats from across the country including Pani puri, Bhel puri, Pakoras, Samosas and Dhokla – Zafran’s homage to Indian street food.
The new menu continues to feature the regular biryanis favored by guests but this section has also been enhanced with the inclusion of specialty biryanis such as the Murgh Hyderabadi and Awadhi Gosht Dum.
Vegetarians can look forward to an equally varied offering that now includes home-style Baigan Bharta, a smoked eggplant mash cooked with chili, garlic and fresh coriander, a Southern-style spinach dish called Dhakni Saag, and Pindi Chole, a classic curry made with chickpeas and a blend of spices.
From the Chili Mojito, Pista Cooler and Orange Cinnamon Blossom to the Baked Yoghurt and Beetroot Halwa, a slow- cooked dessert made with grated beetroot and milk, Zafran’s range of signature drinks and desserts come with their own distinctive Zafran twist.
“With this new menu, we are taking it up a notch, adding some regional recipes made with the finest ingredients using modern techniques and presentation. As always there is an emphasis on lightness without compromising on the flavors expected from an Indian meal,” said Gaurav Singh, General Manager, Zafran.
“The team of chefs at Zafran have a wealth of experience having honed their skills across renowned hotels, restaurants and even stately homes across India. The new menu reflects their diversity and creativity and showcases their talent and attention to detail,” added Singh.
The restaurants are open to guests for lunch as well as dinner from 10 am – 10 pm on weekdays and 10am – 11 pm on weekends. To make a reservation please call: 04 2840987 (Mirdif City Centre) or 04 399 7357(Dubai Marina Mall).
