Broasting is a method of cooking chicken using a pressure fryer. Yellow Tie Hospitality, an India-based F&B Franchise Management Company has brought downGenuine Broaster Chicken (GBC) to India with Celebrity Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi as the Brand Ambassador and Chef on board for GBC in the country. Chef Harpal Singh has curated a special menu comprising 5 special recipes appealing to the Indian palatte but at the same time retaining the American touch.
This is their 3rd outlet in India with first 2 in Raipur and Surat.
The place resembles that of an American Diner with rustic furniture, white brick walls and American posters all over it. The decor is quirky with baseball helmets and interesting lighting.
They have only recently received the license for liquor so we couldn’t try their exotic cocktails. However we did get to try their interesting mocktails such as Chulbul Soda which was Coke infused with cumin and yummy Chaat masala to spice it up! Totally awesome drink. Would have been better with some alcohol too!! Also recommend Bulbul Soda which was orange flavored soda mixed with salted caramel. Sweet and salty with flavor of orange and caramel and some pop – awesome!! Add vodka and becomes divine.
We had a mix of their signature Chicken Wings – The Legendary Genuine Broaster Chicken Wings: The marination used for these wings ia their trademark recipe from US – the chikite sauce and then the wings are pressure fried to give that crispy exterior and juicy tender meat inside. There are 3 varieties of dips served with it: Harissa, Curry Mango Jalapeno and Thai Sweet Chilli.
We also tasted Chef Harpal’s Special Happy Fried Chicken that used his secret marination – again great. And last but the least was the Hot Masala Chicken adding the additional Indian touch to this otherwise American dish. Very crispy, very spicy and very hot!!
Next on our order was the Jong Lee Burger: The Burger buns ha the stuffing made up of Chinese spiced chicken with schezwan mayo and Hakka noodles. While some may love this unique blend of Chinese and American cuisines, we din quite enjoy it. The chicken was tender and spicy and even the noodles were good, just having them together was weird.
Next was the Ghotala Khichdi: We had this in the chicken version which was made with rice, fried egg and chicken kheema as well as little cubes of tender chicken, all tossed together with a lot of Indian spices making it slightly spicy!! A very interesting preparation!
Dessert: We were quite full and decided to opt for one dessert only. Mind you it was a difficult choice as all their desserts have the Indian twist. We opted for the Chocolate Samosa – tiny fried samosas filled with melted chocolate that oozes out with every bite! And this got delicacy goes well with the vanilla ice cream served on the side. Yum yum!!
Overall it’s a really cool place to hangout with some interesting and delicious Indo-American dishes on the menu. I wish to visit again to try other stuff on d menu.
