SquareMeal Review of
Showcasing the Pakhtoon cooking style of the North-West Frontier, Kasturi has ploughed its distinctive furrow unobtrusively on the City’s eastern fringe for nigh on a decade, eschewing the rich,
buttery ghee of much traditional Anglo-Indian cuisine for a lighter & healthier approach. Share a selection of kebabs from the tandoor before tackling lal maas (a red-hot lamb dish from
Rajasthan) or jeera chicken sautéed in ginger & garlic with cumin – both of which are specialities of the house. There’s also a short run through the ever-familiar curry house repertoire
(dhansaks, bhunas, biryanis et al), & veggies have the option of a full thali in addition to the usual vegetable side dishes. ‘Express’ deals are just the ticket at lunchtime. As for the decor,
Kasturi is smart, pale-toned & modern – if unremarkable.
