In a market where every restaurant and takeaway is serving the age-old dishes pleasing its enthusiastic food lovers, Sandringham’s Food Inn has upped the ante by introducing an authentic set of new dishes that recall the tastes of its Indian origins.

The vibrant menu of the restaurant and takeaway has some new names that are hard not to notice. Of the many new dishes added to the chart of the food outlet, special dishes such as Nilgiri Chicken, Lucknowi Biryani and Dragon Chicken are the new favourites of the market.

Food Inn has gained a new momentum by introducing these new dishes that are quickly getting empty from its display counters. The orders still keep swooping in, and the chefs get busy preparing the signature dishes for the diners.

The three special dishes Lucknowi Biryani, Dragon Chicken and Nilgiri Chicken, are the focus of review this week.

Nilgiri Chicken:

The green chicken curry is deceptive to the eyes when it comes to its surprising taste of the mountains of south India, Nilgiri Hills, and the place from where the dish derives its name.

Nilgiri Chicken has a slight touch of South India with the essence of the fresh mint and coriander, a little spice too

This dish although appearing to be saag chicken (spinach chicken) is actually made of the paste of fresh coriander, mint and green chillies. The dish has a slight touch of South India with the essence of the fresh mint and coriander, a little spice too. The tender pieces of chicken are cooked with precision so the taste of the spice emanates from each of the chicken pieces. The curry tastes equally amazing with naan bread, rice or simply in a spoon to sip.

The dish has been a big hit amongst the foodies in the Sandringham village who are praising it for its originality and bringing the taste of home in the curry.

Lucknow Biryani:

Sandringham’s restaurants are famous for its Hyderabadi Dum Biryani, which has been quite successful so far. Food Inn has taken the privilege to offer Sandringham and be the only restaurant to offer authentic Lucknowi style biryani, one of the oldest and most original forms of biryani introduced to India.

Lucknow is famous for its variety of kebabs, some of its outlets still serving the delicacies for over 100 years in Lucknow City. Bringing the same traditional spices and cooking style to Food Inn, the restaurant offers the taste of Lucknow on its plates to the customers who cannot have enough of it.

The goat meat is marinated for more than three hours, so the meat gets juicier with the spices and cooked with dum to give the food lovers a chance to have the best biryani in town

'The soul of Lucknowi Biryani is its invigorating aroma that stems from the plate of steamed rice, ground spices, chicken that is marinated for over three hours so that it soaks in the spices in its soft meat.

A box of biryani is certainly not enough and is incomplete without a few pieces of nawabi kebabs with mint chutney and a simple onion raita.

Special Goat Biryani:

Goat biryani is something that is rarely or never found in the menus of any restaurants unless one prepares and cooks at home on a festive occasion. Food Inn offers the customers goat biryani thrice a week, which is Friday, Saturday and Sunday but there is one condition to it.

The pinnacle of Lucknowi biryani is only cooked when the best goat meat is available to be used. The goat meat is marinated for more than three hours, so the meat gets juicier with the spices and cooked with dum to give the food lovers a chance to have the best biryani in town.

Dragon Chicken:

Dragon Chicken is once again an experimental dish that has quickly become the new choice of starter for the people. Dragon Chicken is an Indo-Chinese dish that gives a tinge of sour and hot taste to the regular dry chicken item.

The red-orange starter is garnished with coriander and tastes best with mint chutney or even as finger bite.

Food Inn has started a new drive that gives the community an opportunity to feature their dishes/recipes in as a guest in Food Inn’s dynamic menu.
