I tucked into mutton korma with seekh kebab and polished it off with a fat khameri roti while Janak had a chicken stew. A phirni was just the right dish to finish our meals with succulent flavours and masala still fizzing in my mouth. I realised how popular this outlet was with foreign travellers and local families alike. It has a heritage, this Karim’s, and it was started by chefs who worked in the kitchens of Bahadur Shah Zafar. The chief cook, after having hawked his skills, started Karim’s restaurant and it is now being run by his grandchildren. So you see how famous the lineage of this merry restaurant is. Nihari and payaa are also served here though only in the morning. The entire meal for the two of us with cold drinks cost us only Rs. 800 and we were burping after the meal.
