When I want to get out of Bandra West, in Mumbai, sometimes I’ll take a taxi over the bridge to “townside” Mumbai. Its such a nice view driving over the water and seeing all the skyscrapers from a distance. It just feels like you’re in a different city altogether. On this particular night, we went to a restaurant called Golden Crown. The meal started out with mini snacks of peanuts, mint chutney, potato chips, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, carrots and a side of a masala powder that you can sprinkle on the snacks to give it more flavor. For our entree we ordered vegetable biryani, which is spiced rice with vegetables. This is a meal in itself. You may also order it with meat. This was so delicious that it inspired me to make it at home, which came out great as well. Alongside the biryani, I orderd a mutton masala. The mutton masala can be very heavy and rich in flavor, so I preferred to eat it with the Raita (cucumber yogurt) and the vegetables. The yogurt and vegetables added a freshness to everything. It’s chow time!
