With a unique collection of intriguing, flavorful dishes, Bombay Club is the go-to place for scenic views, great times, and exotic fare.
The mere mention of the city of Bombay conjures up images of ancient open-air markets buzzing with activity that heightens the senses—tables laden with shimmering silks, racks hung with geometrically patterned rugs, gleaming silver and copper vessels and, at the heart of it all, baskets overflowing with a multi-hued array of aromatic Indian spices, like cardamom, chili peppers, ginger, coriander, saffron and nutmeg.
Parsi originally came from Persia and settled in Bombay. Parsi food mainly consists of meat, however, vegetables are included in their meat preparations. The cuisine uses a variety of dry fruits and can be spicy, but it is rarely chili hot.
Goa is a state along the western coastline, just south of Bombay. Goa was long colonized by the Portuguese and the cuisine, like the culture, blends elements of Portugal and India. Ingredients such as chilis, coconut, and wine vinegar are used extensively in Goan recipes. Occasionally the cuisine can be hot.
The rule of the Moghuls in Northern India began in 1526 and lasted 300 years. During this time the royal kitchens of the Moghul emperors used exotic imported spices and new ingredients like nuts, which were not used Indian cooking before, and added body and gravies. Today, a number of dishes from Northern India retain a strong Moghlai accent.
The four states of the Southern Indian Peninsula – Andhara Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka – are steeped in a rich culture with timeless traditions. They have a passion for hot and sour food. Keralites use black pepper, ginger, and coconut in most of their preparations.
