Which is why, the second I knew I used to be flying into Mumbai within the week of Eid, the very first thing I did was to verify with the Bohri Kitchen on their availability.

An idea that got here to life the day, Munaf Kapadia determined to give up his desk job with Google to launch his mother Nafisa Kapadia’s meals enterprise. Properly, we’re glad he did, or how else, would any of us get to indulge on this extraordinary culinary expertise? Though, what’s fairly superb about this gastronomy tour is that, ever since, the opening of this enterprise, Kapadia’s have taken it upon themselves to feed their company earlier than the household. With that hospitality and heat, it was solely pure for TBK to turn out to be everybody’s favorite in a brief time period.

For Kharaas, the savoury starters, we had been served Smoked Mutton Keema Samosas with lemon bites, Shahi Rooster Cheese Rolls with inexperienced chutney and 48-hour cooked Raan in purple gravy.
