Khawakee Review by Chinmayi

Check this review by food blogger Chinmayi... And don't miss the photos!


Khawakee has been serving Maharashtrian (CKP Style) Meal and festival food items in Pune since 2010. They have a takeaway / delivery kitchen near Swargate, Pune. Most of the dishes are prepared on advance order in a very homely manner and environment.

The gravy for chicken and veg dishes is distinct in both its ingredients and preparation. Best part is they also make their own masala, which they sell as CKP Masala.

Here is what all I tried from their menu-


Special mention first is their unique item- Chicken Thalipeeth : It is a great fusion of traditional Maharashtrian Thalipeeth and modern fast food preparation. The Thalipeeth is made from a mixture of various nutritious grains and pulses and has shredded chicken chunks in it.


Biryani - Flavorful and aromatic. Right amount of spices. The use of ghee was prominent. Very nice!

Rassa - Not too thin which is a good thing. It had chicken stock and perfect roasted flavour of vatan(curry paste)

Chicken dry - Not so spicy and addictive flavour. Typical CKP style flavour profile.


Methi Chicken - Nice gravy consistency. Methi was adequate and cooked nicely. They have nailed it!

They have vegetarian dishes as well. And in non veg they do serve several chicken dishes. 

Call on 9552580321 for orders!

They are also available on Swiggy, Zomato, MagicPin, etc.

Timing - 6pm to 10pm
Monday Closed

Let's Try Khawakee

🥣😋🍛🍗🍽️🧢

"आई, अहो तुम्हाला जे वाटतंय ते तुम्ही खाऊ शकता. मी फक्‍त एवढंच म्हटलं की मला नॉन-व्हेजचा वास सहन होत नाही. त्यामुळं मी नाही बनवू शकणार तुमच्यासाठी. पण हां, हॉटेलमधून आणायचं असेल तर सांगा, मी ऑफीसमधून येताना घेऊन येईन..."

"नको नको, मला नै बै ते हॉटेलातलं आवडत. केवढा मसालाच असतो त्यात. चिकनचे पिस तर शोधून काढायला लागतात..."

"...मग काय करायचं तुम्हीच सांगा आता."

"काय करणार सूनबाई, माझी म्हातारीची आता स्वैपाक बनवायची ताकद पण नाही. एके काळी पन्‍नास-पन्‍नास माणसांचा स्वैपाक घरातल्या घरात बनवायचे मी. आणि नॉन-व्हेज तर असं बनवायचे की लोक..."

"...माहित्येय मला आई ते सगळं. पण आपण आज काय करू शकतो यावर बोललो तर जास्त चांगलं, नाही का?"

"हं... राहू देत मग. असंच खावंसं वाटलं म्हणून म्हटलं तुला. नसेल जमत तर काय... आलीया भोगासी, असावे सादर..."

"असं नका म्हणू आई, मी बघते काहीतरी संध्याकाळपर्यंत. निघते आता, उशीर होतोय."

==========

"काय गं, काय शोधतीयेस 'गूगल'वर?"

"अगं काही नाही, 'चांगलं' नॉन-व्हेज बनवून देणारं कुणी मिळतंय का शोधत्येय..."

"काय म्हणतेस? तू आणि नॉन-व्हेज...?"

"माझ्यासाठी नाही गं... आईंसाठी. त्यांना आवडतं हे सगळं.. चिकन, मटण, फिश, आणि काय काय... मला तर वाससुद्धा सहन नाही होत त्याचा, मग घरात बनवणं तर लांबच!"

"अच्छा, मग हॉटेलमधून पार्सल मागवायचं ना त्यांच्यापुरतं..."

"मीपण तेच म्हणाले, पण त्यांना तसं मसालेदार नाही आवडत. आता त्यांना हवं तसं, घरगुती पद्धतीचं, चविष्ट, आणि 'चांगलं' नॉन-व्हेज बनवणारं शोधायचं तरी कुठं?"

"ए, तू 'खावाकी' ट्राय केलंयस का?"

"काय?"

"अगं 'खावाकी'... मागच्या महिन्यात रियाच्या बर्थडेला चिकन आणि व्हेज बिर्याणी नव्हती का मागवली डिनरसाठी?"

"हो हो हो, आठवलं. पण त्यांच्याकडं किलोवर ऑर्डर करायला लागत असेल ना? की प्लेट बेसिसवर पण नॉन-व्हेज मिळतं?"

"अर्थातच मिळतं! अगं आमच्याकडं तर सारखं चिकन बिर्याणी, चिकन करी, मेथी चिकन, बटर चिकन, आणि काय काय सारखं मागवत असतात."

"मागवत असतात म्हणजे? स्विगी-झोमॅटोवर आहे का 'खावाकी'?"

"हो, स्विगी-झोमॅटोवर तर आहेतच, पण तिथून नाही ऑर्डर करता आली तर व्हॉट्सऐपवर पण ऑर्डर देता येते. आपल्याला पाहिजे त्या एरियात होम डिलीव्हरी मिळते..."

"काय सांगत्येस काय? आणि पेमेंट कसं करायचं?"

"ऑनलाईन! जी-पे, युपीआय, बँक ट्रान्सफर, काहीही चालतं. बेस्ट नॉन-व्हेज फूड घरपोच मिळतं. छान घरगुती पद्धतीचं, कमी मसालेदार, चविष्ट, आणि गरम-गरम..."

"व्वा! तू सांगतियेस त्यावरून तरी आईंना आवडेल असंच वाटतंय. प्लीज मला नंबर देत्येस त्यांचा?"

"एक मिनिट हं... केला सेन्ड व्हॉट्सऐपवर. आणि हो, त्यांच्या फेसबुक आणि इन्स्टा पोस्टसुद्धा बघून घे. काय मस्त-मस्त फोटो टाकतात डिशेसचे."

"थँक्यू व्हेरी मच! खूप मोठ्ठं काम केलंस तू माझं. आजच आईंसाठी चिकन करीची ऑर्डर देऊन टाकते..."

"ऑल द बेस्ट!"

Tasty bhi aur Healthy bhi...

 


Tasty bhi aur Healthy bhi


    We all love tasty food. But is it possible to consume our favourite delicacies without feeling guilty? Rather than advise us on what foods to avoid, the famous nutritionist, weight management consultant, and health writer Kavita Devgan tells us what we need to eat to correct the hormonal imbalances.

    This Pune Mirror article from October 29, 2020 provides some important tips from Kavita Devgan's book - 'Fix It With Food: Super Foods to Become Super Healthy'. The article mentions the following condiments to stick by…


1. Carom Seeds (Ova in Marathi)

- Absorbs food better.

2. Asafoetida (Hing in Marathi)

- A natural blood thinner; lowers blood pressure.

3. Cumin Seeds (Jeera in Marathi)

- Good Source of iron.

4. Curry Leaves (Kadipatta in Marathi)

- Controls blood sugar levels.

5. Fenugreek (Methi in Marathi)

- Balances blood sugar in diabetics.

6. Garlic (Lasoon in Marathi)

- Reduces cholesterol.

7. Ginger (Aale in Marathi)

- Boosts immune system.


    Proud and happy to mention that we, at Khawakee use all of these condiments in various delicacies we prepare on a daily and/or seasonal basis.


Enjoy eating,

Team Khawakee

Crunchy Gourd Cutlets

Crunchy Gourd Cutlets


   It was another lazy day during the lockdown. The day started late in the morning. Mind was full of guilty feeling due to the recently developed habit of waking up late. Of course, the  lockdown has to be blamed for this.  It was also a result of late night reading, which is a more valid excuse. In short, it was a lazy and hungry morning.

   The refrigerator was empty except one small bottle gourd, a few chillies and my favourite green coriander. Keeping everything on the kitchen platform, I started staring at the treasure. It had to be a brunch menu as the time was about to cross 12 in the noon. The absence of too many ingredients and a hungry tummy conspired together to bring out a fresh recipe - Crunchy Gourd Cutlets. It turned out really well and the foodies at home appreciated the efforts.

Ingredients:

- One grated bottle gourd
- One big chopped onion
- Three green chillies, chopped
- Ginger paste one Teaspoon
- Handful of grated green coriander
- Besan two Tablespoon 
- Suji (Rava) six Tablespoon
- Red chilli powder one Tablespoon
- Oil One Tablespoon
- Salt to taste
- Oil to shallow fry cutlets

Procedure:

* Peal off a medium size bottle gourd and grate it. Do not remove water from the bottle gourd.

* Chop the onion, green chillies and coriander finely.

* Take all four ingredients in a bowl and add ginger paste, besan and suji. Then add chilli powder, garam masala, salt and oil.

* Mix it well. No need to add water as the bottle gourd contains a lot of water in it. The mixture will come out as a dough with medium consistency.


* If you find the dough to be very thin, you can add some more suji and adjust its consistency.

* Keep the dough aside for 10 minutes.

* Put oil in the fry pan and heat it on low flame.

* Shape the cutlets as shown in the picture.


* Shallow fry the cutlets.


* Serve them with some chutney or sauce. I like to have them with sweet and sour tamarind chutney.

   Happy brunching with the crunchy cutlets!

Rasmalai

Rasmalai Recipe

Rasmalai is a traditional Bengoli dessert. It is famous due to its heavenly taste. It can be prepared using milk with high fats.


Ingredients:
Milk - 1.5 Litre
Sugar - 500 gm
Lemon Juice - 2 Tablespoons
Corn Flour - 1 Tablespoon
Elaichi, Keshar and Dry fruits

Serves 3 to 4 people

Steps:

1. Boil one litre of milk. Once milk starts boiling, reduce the flame and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice into it. Keep stirring till the milk is curdled. Ensure that water and paneer are separated. Pour and collect it in a cotton cloth. Wash the paneer with cold water to remove the sourness of lemon. Tie the cloth as shown in the picture. Keep it aside for an hour. Let the whey drain properly. It will help in making round balls without cracks.



2. Take a wide-mouth vessel to prepare the sugar syrup.  Add 500gm of sugar to 1 litre of water. Add two elaichi for flavour.


3. Once water is completely drained from paneer, take it out and make fine dough out of it. Knead it nicely for 10 to 15 minutes. You can add one tablespoon of corn flour for binding the balls we want to make.


4. Take half a litre of milk and boil it. Add sugar according to your taste. You can add elaichi, dry fruits and keshar. Rose water can add flavour to the milk. You can also add a little saffron color to the milk. Boil it for some time, let it cool down. Keep milk in the fridge for chilling.


5. Roll small sized balls of paneer dough.


6. Keep the sugar syrup on medium flame. Once it starts boiling, add paneer balls into it one by one. Boil it for 10 minutes. If you simply cool this down and refrigerate them, you will get Rasgullas.


7. For serving them as Rasmalai, squeeze the rasgullas gently to remove extra sugar syrup and drop them in the cold flavoured milk. Keep them in refrigerator and let them soak for some time. Serve them cold whenever you want.

Bigg Vada Paav at Kothrud

In Pune, we had a pleasant rainy atmosphere. It was the first day after lockdown was lifted. We had a list of items to do. After two and half months, we moved out of our area. We were looking for food outlets that we cherished, but we were disappointed to find all of them closed for serving. To our surprise, there was a brand new outlet serving Vada Paav in Kothrud. And there was a pleasant attendant to welcome us. I asked for a parcel of two Vada Paav. The person behind the mask, Parag Bharat Kanhere recommended their proprietary Kharda Vada Paav. I was hesitant to go for it thinking it would be too spicy Vada Paav. But as per his recommendation, decided to give it the try. The outlet is brand new and looked hygienic. Vada Paav was really big as the name indicates. Kharda Vada Paav is not too spicy, but tasty with the flavour of green chillies. Red chutney applied to the Paav had good flavour. Also to my surprise, there was mayonnaise sauce with kharda flavour applied to the Paav. It was the wow factor. Can say that Big Vada Paav made our first outing after lockdown a memorable one. Thank you team Bigg Vada Paav! Location: Sarthak Terraces, Opposite Gandhi Lawns, Kothrud.

Idli Snacks

Some people love to have idli anytime and in any form, few simply hate it as idli does not have any taste as such. It goes well with traditional supplements like sambar or chutney.

Today I tried a new dish using steamed Idli as the base and loved the way it tastes. It's a good option for breakfast if you have idli dough ready at home.

Steam the idli and cut it in small pieces. Spread green chilly and coriander chutney over it. Sprinkle some chat masala and grounded sugar over it.

Cut fresh coriander and spread it over the idli pieces. Now heat the small kadhai and put one tablespoon of butter in it. Put some jeera and mustard and let it sputter. Add a pinch of hing and green chilies in it. Pour all hot contents on the idli base in the kadhai and it's ready to serve!
