If you’re in a party mood, our Shahi Deluxe Menu has you covered. This includes five enchanting courses, including lamb nihari – a lamb leg dish with kohlrabi and nihari sauce – and king prawn makhani with a creamy tomato sauce.
And for the ultimate party experience, we’re also serving a New Year’s Eve dinner with two sittings, followed by yet another sumptuous feast on New Year’s Day.
Bookings are now open for the Festive period at Indian Essence. Be sure to get in quickly to avoid disappointment.
As well as offering a selection of festive menus in the lead up to the big day, we’ll also be open ready to welcome guests with an extra special set menu to take the stress out of Festive cooking.
On Christmas Day, our four course set menu is set to include a gorgeous corn and lentil shorba with smoked popcorn, to be washed down with a welcome drink of spiced Kir Royale. To follow, a number of exciting options feature for the starters, mains and dessert – with something to suit everyone. Pick from the likes of pink peppercorn and kafir lime potted shrimp with a crispy olive naan; turkey tikka marinated with black peppercorn and pomegranate; or tandoori roasted Portobello mushroom with mung bean sprout salad and grated truffle to start.
For the mains, tuck into oven roasted Romney Marsh lamb rump with lamb chop, brussels sprouts and jus; poussin cooked in the clay oven with a tomato and fenugreek sauce; lobster marinated with cumin and garlic; halibut with coconut and tomato sauce; or stuffed ramiro, cottage cheese and broccoli. All of these will be joined by beans poriyal, podi aloo, navrattan pulao and a selection of breads.
Finally, finish off with a choice of comforting Festive desserts, including chocolate and peanut butter brownie with clotted cream and jalebi crème brûlée, a glass of mulled wine, or coffee and mince pies.
