Many a deal has been closed at the Jamavar – that is what the power of good food can hold for you. Jamavar has been offering some great Indian food for several years now. Several chefs have trained and moved on to become sensations in their own their own right. Through it all, Jamavar holds on tight to its legacy of making great food. The food here covers large parts of India and the showcase is lovely. Start with some 'Yetti Saaru' - garlic, coriander and prawn soup. Or you could try the 'Attukal Soup', simply because you rarely see shorba, trotters and all in a 5-star setting. The 'Bharwan Aloo Tikki with Green Pea Masala, the Corn Bezule and the Cauliflower Kempu Bezule' are lovely choices. The 'Kakinada Royala Vepudu' (Stir-fried prawns) and the 'Macchi Amritsari' in the lovely yellow masala of gram flour and red chilli lemon are great choices too. Moving on to main courses, you have the 'Nawabi Kofta' that pairs well with 'Bharwan Kulcha' and the 'Baingan Bharta' that I can eat without anything on the side thanks to its smokiness. The 'Jheenga Dhania Tamatar' is great and if for a taste of Kerala, do try the 'Alleppey Fish Curry'. The 'Nihari' here is made with love and you do not want to leave without doing the 'Dal Jamavar'. I love the fact that the range of biryanis here is tempting. The 'Kozhi Biryani', the 'Awadhi' and even the 'Erachi Biryani'. And, read through the desserts because you do not want to miss them too.
