Hyderabad Meets Dubai
Legend has it that there are only six chefs or ‘khansamas’ alive who can cook an authentic Kacche Gosht Ki Biryani, an intriguing Hyderabadi dish which is considered the ultimate measure of a chef’s skill. This dish is one of the signature offerings which will be presented by esteemed Guest Chef Siraj Khan from Trident, Hyderabad, who will be in residence at Ananta at The Oberoi, Dubai from 17-26 September.
Chef Siraj shares, “Hyderabad is renowned around the world for its distinctive cuisine which is blended from Mughlai, Turkish and Arabic influences” adding, “I’m looking forward to bringing the flavours of my home to Dubai with a selection of some of my favorite dishes.”
A tantalising array of iconic dishes from the region will be available throughout the week with highlights including Dum Ka Murgh (chicken braised in a rich curry of yoghurt and nuts), Haleem (a ‘porridge’ of slow cooked lamb, wheat and lentils) and Pathar Ka Gosht (lamb kebabs cooked on a hot stone).
Ananta is open for dinner from 7pm every day and for lunch on Fridays from 12.30pm.
The special Hyderabadi dégustation menu is available from AED 330. An A La Carte menu will as well be available.
