Karvachauth is an Indian festival & we decided to visit Daryaganj restaurant situated in Aerocity, Delhi to have our dinner.
For our readers we may tell Daryaganj restaurant majorly serves North Indian & Mughlai Cuisines. It has been claimed that globally famous dishes of Dal Makhni and Butter Chicken were conceptualized by Late Kundan Lal Jaggi. The legacy now is being carried forward by his Grandson Raghav Jaggi and his childhood friend, restaurateur Amit Bagga.
Thereafter we reached the restaurant which reported a long waiting time of about 2 hours. Thanks to the courteous staff we were soon seated.The ambiance there was captivating .We decided to order their signature dish The Original Paneer Tikka & Fresh Lime Soda for drink.
The Paneer Tikka was served with Coriander Chutney and garnished with vegetables, it smelled lovely and looked tempting. The first bite itself burst a lot of flavours in our mouth, the coating of the Indian spices and the smokey charred flavour did hit the right spot, but something really different about the dish was use of Cheese to coher the marinated pieces of Cottage 01Cheese.All this made it a perfect starter for the dinner.
Now encouraged with the starter we were pretty confused about whether to order Dal Makani(A signature dish of the restaurant) or Malai Kofta(Cottage cheese dumplings stuffed with dry fruits served in rich smooth gravy) for the main course.After consulting our server we finally ordered Malai Kofta , along with Tandoori Rotis . The food was served shortly, however Malai Kofta did not suit to our palette as it was on the saltier side,. We discussed the same with our server who offered to replace the dish but in India we believe Food is an Embodiment of God so we did not return the dish. To our surprise Malai Kofta was not charged in the bill which showed that the level of importance this restaurant accrues to satisfying their customer.
So we definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant .Soon we will be going again to the restaurant to taste Dal Makhni
