Yantra – Indian Fine Dining

The night began at the open air bar just outside Yantra. My friend brought 2 bottles of Dom Perignon which we sipped while waiting for the food we've ordered (before going into the main dining hall).

Grilled on a skewer, some mutton mince mixed with onions and aromatic Indian spices formed these delicious Mutton Seekh Kebabs. I sense some fresh mint, cilantro, ginger and perhaps green chili paste in these delectable rolls.

Grilled mushrooms. The sheer size made me wonder if they were juvenile portobello (portabella) mushrooms. They were grilled and came with a creamy satiny yoghurt and tumeric sauce that made it quite unique. The meaty texture of the little brown crimini was very tasty and satisfying indeed.

Masaledar Murgh - I find the taste very much like that of chicken tikka masala. Rich and creamy, velvety texture on the tongue. No stinging heat.

Dhuan Gosht - This dish was very tasty. The delicate morsels were simmered till fork-tender with a mixture of carefully blended Indian spices.

Garlic Naan - crisp and garlicky. A must have to mop up all the curries.

Jeera Pulao - Jeera is cumin seeds and this may just be one of the simplest yet most fragrant flavoured basmati rice.

Spinach and Feta Samosa. My friends did not want dessert so they order these. They liked it but samosa is not really my kind of "dessert".

Narangi Cod. Still not quite full, we ordered fish and was recommended some cod. The flesh was "fatty", I could feel the omegas welling up. Very smooth and tasty texture, right up my alley.

Without abandoning the fundamentals of North Indian cooking, Yantra has been pushing the limits of its culinary limits under Executive Chef Chintan Pandya. One example is the use of cod, an unusual ingredient in Indian cuisine. The Soma Bar is also well stocked with many alcoholic  labels. Furnished in modern chic decor, it is definitely a place to entertain and indulge your senses.

I found the name Yantra to be very interesting. Click here to find out.

    Grilled mushrooms with a yoghurt and turmeric sauce? Sounds delightful. Is that a crust around the Dhuan Gosht? And Yes, your waiter was very cute. 😉

    I have to say that my favorite type of ‘foreign’ (meaning I can’t cook it) food is Indian food. Those pictures are amazing. I love to see tandoori cooking. It’s so lovely. Thanks for the tasty ideas. It’s been too long since I’ve gone out for Indian food. It’s time.
