I feel that the real gastronomic essence of Delhi lies not in the luxurious 5 stars and the swanky restro bars, but in the dusty by lanes and in the chaotic bazars of the old city.
It was in the search of this facet of the city, that I forayed into the hustle and bustle of Nizamuddinbasti in search of the legendary ‘NasirIqbal’.
I am thankful to Mr Shoaib, the restaurant manager, who patiently sorted out my queries and took me deep inside into the world of NasirIqbal.
The restaurant was opened in 1986 by Nasir, son of Iqbal, who migrated to India after partition, by the name of ‘NasirIqbal’ dhaba. The beginning was really humble, as the dhaba served only ‘Paratha’ and boiled eggs. They gradually forayed into Mughlai cuisine, and in no time, became one of the most popular dhabas of the area.
Till 1995, they served only beef, but as the demand grew, they started making chicken and mutton recipies too. Now, the restaurant serves only chicken and mutton items.
The menu consists of everything you can possibly think of in a Mughlai feast. More than what to order, the dilemma was what to leave!! Shoiab again provided a helping hand. On asking what would he order as a guest, pat came his reply
