Ohri’s Mehfill

Celebrations for special days are always etched in our memory. If you are looking for something that is in the heart of the city, cosy and allows you to let you hair down and enjoy a full five meal course then one must head to Ohri’s Mehfill, a fine dining restaurant, at Hotel Baseraa situated on S D Road, Secunderabad.

The name Mehfill must have rung a bell. Yes, this restaurant specialises in Mughlai cuisine and is very popular for its non-vegetarian dishes. As you step in, you will be greeted by with a smile and made comfortable. If you have stepped in for lunch, you have recorded soothing ghazals to cool your nerves and if it is evening, then it is live music and you can have your requests, or still short woo your girlfriend or better half. The restaurant has a seating capacity of 90 guests and has maximum guests during dinner and the weekend (Friday – Sunday). Chefs Gorelal Yadav and Nazeer Mohammed have been dishing out tasty cuisines for the past three decades.

If you are not inclined to begin your meal with a soup, one can try the mocktails. There are plenty of choices in this section beginning with Cool Cucumber, Green Temptation, Peach Surprise, Chatka Grape, Litchi Colado and the special Mehfil Punch – a sweet concoction of orange, pineapple juice, litchi, mango and fat free cream.

For starters, if you love chicken, then try out the threaded crispy chicken – shredded chicken, seasoned with exotic Chinese spices, wrapped in thin strips of wanton and fried crisply. If you love lamb, then you must savour the Crispy Konjee Lamb – shredded lamb, crispy fried, tossed in pungent hoisin sauce. There are choices in fish and prawns too.

Coming to the main course, if you have had chicken in the starters’ then taste lamb cuisine or vice versa. It is not heady, but tasty and try out the Diced Chicken Dong Style – dices of chicken cooked in a rice wine-based Dong sauce. In the lamb variety, try out the Roast Lamb in hot bean sauce – sliced roast lamb cooked with red and green peppers in a fiery black bean sauce.

If one is interested in pure Mughlai cuisines one can try out the Murgh Pakeezah, Murgh Mussallam or Murgh Noorjahan. Want something with local flavours, then try out the Gosht Nizami Salan – Mutton pieces cooked with freshly chopped brown onions, a touch of cashew nut paste and curd, whole and powdered Indian spices. But the chef vouches for Khada Masala Gosht – lamb cooked traditionally in an earthen pot with whole spices – a Karachi speciality served in an earthen pot.

The vegetarians can savour the Vegetarian Chow with roasted almonds – Cubes of vegetables, cottage cheese and fresh baby corn cooked in a mildly seasoned sauce and garnished with roasted almonds. If you love spicy, then order the Okra corn and potato hot garlic- baby corn, potato and okra cooked in a hot spicy garlic sauce. Try the Makai ki Shehzadi – combination of fresh baby corn, juliennes of cabbage and spinach cooked with red tomatoes and onions. You can have your main course with choices of rotis from Khazan-e-roti, or try out the Mehfil ki khaas tokri.

If you are a rice lover, in the Lazeez Chawal section – there is Kashmiri Pulao, subz Biryani, Vegetable Pulao, and a Mehfil specialty – Mehfil-e-Sofiyani Biryani. But, in Hyderabad many prefer the Dum ki Biryani – aromatic basmati rice layered with delicious chicken or mutton, cooked on a dum (dry heat) with herbs and spices flavoured with saffron and served with mirchi ka salan and raita.

In the desert section, there is the usual Cream Caramel, Khubani Kulfi, Zafrani Phirnee and cassata, but what attracts the sweet tooth lovers would be the Bull’s Eye.    A meal for two will approximately cost Rs. 1200.
