Manisha Bhasin On Food
Bukhara, based in New Delhi, is famous for the quality of its North West Frontier cuisine. Highly popular with tourists and travellers the world over, it is the destination for heads of state, film stars and pop singers. The view of the kitchen, with busy chefs cooking up a storm, adds to the warmth of the restaurant. It brings rustic flavours alive in traditional clay tandoor ovens. This style of cooking requires great expertise on the part of the chefs, as the meat is only marinated and cooked before serving, not accompanied by any sauce. I strongly recommend dal bukhara and the raan.
