Are you craving for Kashmiri food? Located in the popular areas of Malad, Poush – The Essence of Kashmir has a solution to your craving. Poush is a Kashmiri Themed Restaurant which serves Kashmiri Cuisine.
The ambiance is pretty and romantic with Kashmiri Shikara seating. There are also table seatings and a few side seatings with curtains. Soft music playing in the background, adds the perfect touch to a romantic meal.
I tried “Daiyy Bhatt Thal” (Vegetarian 4-course meal) which includes –
Nadier Palak Tikki – It is a traditional Lotus Stem and Spinach Tikki served along with mint chutney
Nadier Monje – It is a deep-fried lotus stem fritters that are very crunchy and light.
Dum Aloo – The Kashmiri style dum aloo is nutty in flavor potato curry.
Ruwangan Chaaman – It is a paneer recipe made with a rich tomato and milk-based gravy flavored with fennel powder
Nadier Palak – It is a spinach and lotus stem curry. It is mildly spicy and yet very flavorful.
Rajma – Rajma is a curry made with tomato puree and kidney beans.
Accompaniments – Raita Roti, Plain Rice
Phirni – Kashmiri Phirni is made with Semolina and flavored with saffron. It is a light and creamy dessert that is a great way to finish the meal. You can also choose Gulab Jamun instead of Phirni.
Kahwah (Hot/Cold) – It is a Kashmiri tea flavored with cardamom and infused with cloves, cinnamon, and saffron.
Summarizing, not just their ambiance, the food & service is also top-notch. So the next time when you are in a mood for a romantic meal, mark this on the top of your list.
