Qureshi Hy­der­abadi Fes­ti­val at Hor­muz Grand Ho­tel

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUSCAT: Hy­der­abad is a city in In­dia steeped in his­tory, bustling with a world of in­flu­ences and sus­tained by a culi­nary back­drop of so­phis­ti­cated dishes known around the world.

This month, the Hor­muz Grand Ho­tel will cel­e­brate this cui­sine with a fes­ti­val of flavour as two Qureshi broth­ers, sons of the fa­mous Im­tiaz Qureshi, visit the ho­tel to pre­pare their sig­na­ture dishes and high­light the finest Hy­der­abadi cui­sine.

With strong in­flu­ences from Mughal cui­sine as well as Per­sia, Ara­bia, Afghanistan and Tur­key, Hy­der­abadi menus are famed for their aro­matic mut­ton dishes and sub­tly spiced birya­nis. The menu cre­ated by the Qureshi broth­ers, Ash­faque and Ir­fan, will fea­ture the clas­sic dishes of the re­gion such as Murgh Seekh Las­suni and Kac­chi Gosht Biryani but will also in­clude other favourites in­clud­ing Lal Mirch Tikka, Murgh Aloo Korma, Shikam­pur and Ba­gara Bain­gan.

Com­ple­ment­ing these dishes will be bread fresh from the clay kiln and sump­tu­ously sweet dishes to round off a culi­nary jour­ney through Hy­der­abad.

Shafaque Ah­san, di­rec­tor of F&B at Hor­muz Grand Ho­tel is un­der­stand­ably ex­cited about the visit from the famed Qureshi broth­ers, “Hav­ing Ash­faque and Ir­fan here in the restau­rant that bears their fam­ily name is some­thing we have looked for­ward to since the restau­rant opened. They will bring some new dishes for peo­ple to en­joy and we look for­ward to see­ing our many reg­u­lar din­ers as well as some new ones who will ex­pe­ri­ence the true taste of royal food.”

The Qureshi Hy­der­abadi Fes­ti­val will run un­til Septem­ber 30 in the Qureshi Bab Al Hind Restau­rant lo­cated on the lobby level of the Hor­muz Grand Ho­tel.
