Here's Dumpukht is trying to change the perception that it is rich in calories.
Unfortunately, it's doing nothing to change the perception that you need to be
rich in greenbacks to dine in here.
The ITC Kakatiya Sheraton is hosting a Kebabs And Koftas Festival at its
Dumpukht restaurant, aimed at changing the perception that the Dumpukht cuisine
is high calorie. They are inviting people to try kebabs that aren't heavy. The
koftas and kebabs are mildly spiced, and the minimum amount of oil possible is
used. Instead of being fried, the kebabs are being grilled on lagan.
The menu offers equal choice for vegetarian and non-vegetarians. You can start
with the appetizing shorbas, served with crisp kurkuris. Hot Shorba
Dilbahar (a delicately flavored lentil extract soup) or the Shorba Quoovat-E-Bah-Paya
(special soup with the extract of lamb trotters) can be given a try.
There are eight starters: Kebab-E-Shaam, Kham Khatai (green lentil kebab),
Doodhiya Kebab (made of paneer and herbs), Goolarh Kebab (made of
banana), Aloo Motia Kebab, Mahi Dum Angare, Murgh Pasanda and the Mutton
The aromatic spices rule the koftas too, served as Kofte Ki Nazaquat,
Kofta Mehnum Nishan (kofta stuffed with paneer and cooked in cardamom gravy)
and the Samundari Kofta with prawns. You can also give a try to Koftas
With Parathdar Paratha (crisp multi layered rotis). The koftas add
to the regular biryanis, too. The Yakooti Biryani, a mélange of
rice flavored with tiny Khoya Koftas, is something else worth interest.
The dessert platter offers Aam Ki Kheer, Lab-E-Mashooq and Shahi Aam
Ki Kheer. Please contact 340-0132 for further details.
