Ramadan in Dubai: Game for a Butter Chicken omelette or Burrata Butter Chicken?

Indian Belly, My Dubai

If there’s a Rajniknath in North-Indian dishes, it is the Butter Chicken! Punjab and Butter Chicken are something like Santa and Banta – you can’t really imagine one without the other. No wonder then, as we celebrate the vibrancy of Punjab in this issue, we can’t help but rediscover the one dish that all Punjabis swear by – Butter Chicken! – The Indian Trumpet’s Punjab Edition We play Sherlock to find out when and how did the recipe of the Butter Chicken originate. And not to our surprise, there are many versions, and a popular story goes such – What…

Bharat Darshan, desi emotions

There’s nothing known as too much ghee!

Indian Belly, My Dubai

If you’re from North India, especially New Delhi or Punjab, then you too, like us, would associate Sagar Ratna, with mostly South Indian fare, including but not limited to the range of dosa, idli, and uthappam. So, it was quite a surprise for us when at Sagar Ratna, Dubai, we were told we’d be sampling authentic Marwari cuisine. Ghee, bring it on! As we sample an authentic Marwari meal at Sagar Ratna, Dubai, we vouch for the fact that there’s nothing known as too much ghee. Sit back, soak in the Rajasthani folk music, and eat on… – The Indian…

My little boy had grown up and his feet were as big as mine!

Trumpet Lead

It was his 17th birthday and my timid and shy young son was slowly growing up to be a fine young man. Over the years, a lot had changed. Earlier, as a boy, he would grip my hand a little firmer when we crossed the road. Now he would steer clear and give me a sheepish smile as we walked side by side, crossing the road. He was almost my height now and he seemed to be more and more excited and curious to know if he would possibly grow taller. Every few months, he would suddenly walk up to…

Between fathers and sons

Trumpet Lead

It seemed like an eternity, but it was finally 6.30 pm. Any second now… and finally, the doorbell rang! I hurriedly tailed mummy as she went to open the door. And there he was! Papa was home. He smiled at me as he handed the bags and groceries to mum, and I ran to hug his towering frame, only managing to reach up to his knees. It was our routine evening ritual. A page from a dairy, when I was a child and I’d stand barefoot on dad’s feet…and we played a little game. – The Indian Trumpet’s Shoe Special…
