Enjoy this with India’s all-time favourite snack, samosas, opting for either the vegetarian ‘Green Peas and Aloo Samosas’ or the ‘Minced Lamb Patti Samosas’ for the meat lovers.
With Ustad’s trained and nurtured for decades it is only right to continue by exploring the intensely marinated grills of the Tandoor with spices sourced from the best farms across India.

Paired with the light and airy ‘Garlic naan’ or for artisanal bread ‘Roomali Roti’, a soft, delicate, handkerchief-thin bread, tossed and cooked on an inverted tawa.
