Indulge In Home-Style Dishes In A Minimalistic Setting At This Eatery

    What Makes It Awesome?

    Umraan Regional, a small joint with a seating capacity of some 20 people, is a delicacy joint in Pali Hill Road, Bandra. It offers homely cooked foods from various parts of India. The ambience is pretty neat and simple. And the staff is courteous to everyone. Once you enter this restaurant, on the right side is a huge tiger logo which can be pretty intimidating. Coming to what we had: - We started off with aam panna and lassi {Rating 4/5} – The curd used to prepare the lassi wasn't too sour and the taste was well-balanced with right notes on sweetness. However, I felt that the aam panna had almost no taste. It lacked the punch of salt and the taste of raw mangoes in general {this drink was more on the subtle side}. - Kolhapuri chicken tikka dry {Rating 4/5} – Though the chicken looked delicious I wish they had kept in on the grill for a little longer. But it was certainly a delicious starter to start the meal. - Veg galauti kebab {Rating 5/5} – Made with cauliflower, carrots, and beans; this dish was amazing. It was delicious and melted right in my mouth. You should try this out. - Chicken Chettinad wrap {Rating 4/5} - We called for this as I was excited about the Chettinad connection. I love the masala they had used. The dish ingrains nine masalas into one and tastes well if cooked right. The wrap, however, was slightly low on taste {less spicy}, but good for subtle taste buds. - Wazwani Marchwangan Murgh {Rating 4/5} – I enjoyed the flavours of the gravy. This light brownish gravy was packed with great spices and accompanied well with laccha paratha.   - Dal Panchratnan {Rating 5/5} – This was the staff's recommendation and I am so glad we tried it. This is a combination of five pulses which includes moong, channa, masoor, urad, and toor dal. Well-blended with the right masalas, this dal is a must-try. For dessert, we tried Laal Gulla, berry rasmalai, and Belgian chocolate phirni. Out of the lot, I liked berry rasmalai the most. The phirni was next in line. The laal gulla, however, was not that great. least liked {only red velvet fans will be fascinated by it}.

    What Could Be Better?

    - Hyderabadi mutton biryani - While the rice was well-cooked, the biryani, on the whole, lacked the flavoursome punch that I had high hopes from. The masala beneath the rice was not as flavoursome as I wanted it to be. - Goan chicken cutlets – Looked tempting initially but the taste wasn’t so good; more of potato {again bland} and less of chicken with not much of flavour in it. The green chutney which accompanied it was a saviour.
