Shiny medieval swords and classical art hanging on ivory walls, flowers on every table and treatment of guests as royal as the décor – The Northern Frontier is a slice of old-world North India in the heart of Yerawada. The establishment is also pretty much the last word in Kashmiri cuisine in the city, if their crunchy nadur chips (deep-fried lotus stem) served with two particularly delightful dips – walnut (thick and nutty) and radish (creamy and mellow) – or the juicy tabak maaz are anything to go by. For mains, the gushtaba (minced meatballs cooked in a mint-flavoured yogurt-based gravy), the mutton rogan josh and the ninya pulao (fragrant rice with mildly spiced mutton chunks) are must-haves. And if you are a vegetarian, it is imperative that you sample their haak (spinach tossed in mustard oil) – a seasonal dish that epitomises the expression ‘beauty in simplicity’.
