The new Indian inspired charcoal barbecue, Burra Khana, is now open in Nottingham. The opening sees Nottingham house its first Indian-inspired, charcoal barbecue all-day dining restaurant.
Featuring dishes inspired from the streets of Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta and inspiration from Middle Eastern cooking methods, from Iran to Turkey and Lebanon, the menu centres on small plates offering a mixture of dishes marrying these two influences.
The restaurant is named after the Hindi expression ‘Burra Khana’ meaning ‘big feast’ - with the menu reflecting this ethos of conviviality between friends and family.
Tom Brooke, Founder, is working with Head Chef Pramod Kumar to bring a combined expertise in the techniques of barbecue and Indian-inspired cooking to the kitchen at Burra Khana.
The menu at Burra Khana showcases a selection of charcoal barbecue skewers, cooked on an authentic charcoal pit – exhibiting the Middle Eastern influence on the menu including; Raunak-E-Sheek; a Hyderabad classic dish of mutton marinated in a blend of spices and cooked over open flames. Other highlights include Jhangiri Jenga; jumbo king prawns marinated in a yoghurt-based paste with ground carom seeds, red chillies, turmeric and garam masala - which are skewered and cooked in a traditional clay oven.
In keeping with the theme of sharing, there are also an array of Indian inspired, street-food style small plates such as; Mutton Belly Vindaloo Samosas, Kati Rolls, Vada Pau and Pau Bhajis. Desserts come in the form of Malai kulfi and a cashew, cardamom and rose rice pudding.
Guests can expect an eclectic mix of signature alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails such as refreshing lassis and Indian-inspired contemporary cocktails using botanical ingredients.
The interiors at Burra Khan are designed by Design LSM, a Brighton based multi-disciplined studio specialised in Architecture and Interior Design who’s worked with a diverse portfolio of clients within the hospitality industry. Burra Khana has 70 covers.
Head Chef Pramod Kumar to says; “We are excited to bring the eclectic flavours from the major cities of India to Nottingham through our menu at Burra Khana. The menu boasts an array of small plates inspired by the cosmopolitan streets of Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta. Mingling this with influence from traditional Middle Eastern sharing dishes we have created a menu that is truly unique.”
