I highly recommend everyone takes full advantage of any opportunity to sample Asma's delicious food at her events - really delicious stuff :) I attended her Indian Street Food Mela on the 15th October, which was a fundraiser for Action Against Hunger, the organisation I work for. The event raised an amazing £800! To put this into context, this is enough to provide a month's supply of therapeutic nutritional products to nurse over 20 severely malnourished children back to health. A massive well done and thank you Asma for supporting our fight against hunger!
Each item was par excellence. Full of flavour and taste. Presentation and preparation were outstanding. May consider slightly shortening the menu by removing the guggani and aloo dam. These were good , but not great, and could be done without given the already extensive menu. My favourite was the oustanding chaat, daal, kofta, momo and gur ki kheer. The daal could use a little less butter as the taste of the lentils was slightly overpowered, nevertheless it was excellent. All in all a superb evening thanks to Asma Khan.
One of the many reasons I love living in London is the amazing food culture in the city. I have travelled the world's kitchens without having to leave the city! Its been an awesome ride, except when it came to the chaat. India's favourite street food is also one of my all time favourite comfort foods. Crispy puris, tangy tamarind chutney, spicy potatoes, chick peas and ... I could go on! The chaat in London - with all due respect to everyone who attempts to serve it - just doesn't taste as it should.
All that changed when I tasted Asma's chaat. From the first bite I was transported to the street stall outside my school in India. THIS is what it tastes like to eat food from home. Wah!
