Kangan presents flavours of North India
Food is a journey where every bite takes you closer to the final destination which is heavenly bliss. Recently I was at the Kangan, a Indian fine dining restaurant at Westin- Goregaon – http://www.westinmumbaigardencity.com/
I experienced a soul satisfying gourmet feast curated by their chief Chef Angad Rai. Read on for more………
Kangan, The jewel at Westin
A chilled out place for fine dining, there was an instant feeling of comfort on entering the restaurant. Though it was dimly lit, I was relaxed knowing the dining experience will be an unforgettable one. And yes, Kangan lived upto my expectations. Though the music playing was indian the interior didn’t overdo the Indian look. Situated on the 18th floor, just overlooking the western express highway Kangan offers probably one of the best views of the Mumbai, a city that never sleeps and is always on the go.
Meeting Chef Angad Rai
A pleasant warm personality, Chef Angad Rai has taken over to revamp the menu at Kangan restaurant. He greeted us with a warm Namaste, asking us our preference in food ensuring us to serve the most delectable indian dishes in which he specializes in.
All evening we noticed him personally cooking up in the open kitchen with his team and visiting tables to get feedback on dishes served. Chef Angad, Take a bow as you made Kangan the talk of the town, giving diners a fabulous Indian fine dinning experience.
The Food we savoured that day
The new menu looked interesting enough to taste all the dishes.
Serving us a delectable platter of assorted tikkas and kababs. Each one was unique in taste and had a flavourful story to tell. Listing them in Sweetannu’s order of preference.
- Khatti Jheenga- Kaffir lime leaves marinated tiger prawns cooked in tandoor
- Chaas Murgh tikka- Spiced Buttermilk infused chicken morsels cooked in tandoo
- Kakori Kabab- Melt in mouth seekh kebab mixed with Awadhi spices cooked in tandoor
- Habibiya tawa Ghosth- Melt in mouth seekh kebab mixed with Awadhi spices cooked in tandoor
- Nadru Shikampuri- Braised lotus stem patties, stuffed with spiced raw mango and pan seared
My experience says I should go easy on the main course as North Indian dishes are full of cream and are comparatively heavy. However wrong again, as I didn’t find much in gravies served. I was enveloped by the aroma and enjoyed each colourful dish on the table. Listing them again in my personal preference as per my taste and liking.
1. Kukkad Tariwala- Home style chicken curry.
2.Sasranga korma- hand pullled kasmiri lamb preparation.
3. Murg Awadh Korma- Chicken cooked with awadh spices.
4. Purvanchal saag- Fresh leafy greens tempered with cumin and garlic chives.
5. Khatti Machhli- Pompret cooked in red onions and tangy tomatoes.
And a special mention to the Daal Kangaan that is a must have for everyone. The magic is in the slow cooked lentils and tomatoes finished with white butter
The breads served up that night were very special too.
1. Warqi Paratha- This flakey paratha complimented all the gravy main course dishes making then finger licking worthy.
2. Zaffrani Taftan- This slightly sweetened flatbread being enriched with saffron and milk was something I have never savoured before, so soft it just melted away in the mouth.
Ending off the main course with Murg Dumm Biryaani. The aromas engulfed my senses as the pot opened. Soft pieces of chicken served up with perfectly cooked and tempered rice. Kudos Chef Angad!! 🙂
Who can end a meal without savouring some indian sweets? And when asked I couldn’t refuse the Ras malai. It was sweet yet light with that refreshing saffron taste, loaded with dry fruits.
In a nutshell:
Enjoy Kangan with all its deliciousness Chef Angad has to offer with a fabulous view of Amchi Mumbai
