Now the food ! The restaurant caters to both, vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. After being guided and comfortably seated by the steward, a tabloid, “THE NJP TIMES” is placed in front of the guests. The tabloid, in fact, contains the menu ! And the variety is sumptuous, scrumptious and incredible !! Designed on the range of food available in Purani Dilli, there is a variety of Chuskis, Soups, Chaats, Kebabs, Curries and Dals available.
Now, the Paranthas ! Paranthas ? NOT JUST PARANTHAS ! Going through the menu, it seems like an unending journey through Paranthey Wali Gali ! You name a filling or a combination of stuffing and they have it. Almost a hundred to choose from. The fillings and stuffings are categorised as regular and premium, and the paranthas come in six inches and nine inches size. You can have them all in crispy tawa fried (fried on a griddle) or tandoori (roasted in clay oven) There is a choice of special Diet Parantha (made with special whole-wheat chakki flour, with crushed outer layer of wheat called bran which is supposed to be rich in fibre, roasted in clay oven and served with an option of olive oil).
Then there are Pocket Paranthas (an innovative pocket shaped parantha stuffed with whole kebabs), Speciality Paranthas, Chur Chur Parantha (a unique combination of four different flavours kneaded to perfection with butter and ajwain, stuffed and roasted in clay oven, crushed and soaked in butter), Italian Pizza Paranthas, Continental Sandwich Paranthas. One more specialty parantha is Sharabi Parantha. A little bit of burning alcohol is poured on the parantha at the time of serving and a blue flame keeps burning on the parantha for some time keeping it hot on the top.
NOT JUST PARANTHAS, in a way can be counted in the category of a theme restaurant. But unlike other theme restaurants, where food usually takes a back seat to the presentation of the theme, NJP makes sure that their paranthas remain in the forefront and the decor complements the food. After all, it’s the food that drives a successful theme restaurant !
