Once you have been through the rather nice traditional hand-washing ritual in brass containers, you can begin your Indian cuisine tour de force at Masala Kraft. This restaurant, located in the Taj Palace Palace & Tower, is inspired by Mumbai’s ‘six sigma tiffin service’. You know, that faultless, quintessentially Indian lunchtime delivery service that has become famous worldwide. Here you can get a taster of what it’s like – albeit a very chi-chi taster – by ordering up your very own Bombay tiffin.
At Masala Kraft there are no traces of the usual fat-laden butter, cream and gravy dishes here – instead, careful preparation techniques are used by the chefs to bring out delicate flavours, so the food is much lighter than normal. Try the atta chicken and langarwali dal. All good stuff,
