Chef Kumar Mahadevan has been creating authentic Indian cuisine at ABHI’s for 26 years, where the unassuming shopfront hides a treasure trove of aromas and delicacies. The sparkling black and silver walls, the Rajasthan-style wooden sculptures, and the open kitchen with skewered tandoori offerings aloft on racks all transport you to a world well beyond Concord Road.
Start the journey through the extensive menu with crisp, thin and achingly delicate rice flour keema dosais, served with pixie-sized buckets of onion chutney and lentil ‘sambar’. Inside, discover a heady chilli hit of pounded lamb mince and cheese. Patiala goat curry is rich with the earthy spices of cinnamon, mace and clove, with a velvety mouthfeel and meltingly tender morsels of goat cooked on the bone, while the succulent methi murgh chicken bursts with the sweet flavour of fenugreek leaves and zing of fresh green chilli.
