Mahrukh's Kitchen

Whenever you speak to a Parsi, they will always tell you that a good home-cooked meal is better than anything else. Yes, we tend to agree too, after having sampled some delicious home-made Parsi bhonu at weddings and functions at home.

Her successful venture, Mahrukh’s Kitchen, boasts of a number of signature dishes that constitute authentic Parsi cuisine. Her menu comprises of the ‘Circle of Life’ platter that is kheema with farcha, navroze pulav {with dry fruits}, daal and walnut raita, that costs INR 500.

Apart from this, you can order Akuri, tatrela jinga {large shrimp with herbs}, kheema pav, fried fish, pattice & kababs platter, Jardalu ma Ghosh {slow cooked mutton with apricot sauce}, pulav daal and so much more.
