In today's episode, Anubhav Sapra is talking you on a mouthwatering journey full of non-veg delicacies from the bustling old streets of Patna, the capital city of Bihar. The locals here are very fond of fish, chicken, and mutton. The style in which they are prepared is very distinct due to the use of some set combinations of spices, that are mostly used in the freshly pounded form. With numerous eateries selling tempting non-veg delicacies, Patna is undoubtedly a haven for all non-veg enthusiasts.
Here you can get to savour both traditional and fusion or innovative dishes, most of which are cooked in mustard oil. Now let's share with you, our gastronomic experience at some of the popular non-veg joints that are known for deliciously affordable delicacies. In this quest, we are joined by our host Mayank and a few of his friends, who makes an awesome foodie gang.
So our first stop is Daniyawan Restaurant, which is known for its fish-based dishes. It is named after a small block in the Patna district that is popular for small-scale fish farms and rustic fish preparations. We ordered an elaborate spread from the extensive menu full of traditional delicacies. It included fish starters, usna rice, rotis, three different kinds of fish curries, quality and chicken meat curry. The food was outstanding and so was the hospitality and the ambiance. The use of fresh fish lent an extra edge to the culinary feat over here. The best part was the prices were very affordable.
After that soul-satisfying meal, the genial owner of the place took to Chaurasia Paan Bhandar for some Maghai paan. From there we went to Blue Moon Rolls to try the very famous Patna-style egg rolls. We truly wanted to check what was so unique about it that most of the roll centers in Delhi sell it by the same name. The humble wrap made of paratha, onion, a few spices, chilli sauce, and ketchup was so hearty and comforting.
Our next destination was Devilal Jis chicken litti shop. The swarm of people at the eatery jostling with each other to get their order just blew our minds. It was the sign of its immense popularity. We briefly chatted with Devilalji before polishing off a plateful of scrumptious chuza litti. It is an innovative combo of littis and robust and flavourful chicken curry. Every bite led us to a blissful zone.
The last destination was the century old, iconic Manghu hotel. There we tried the unique Bihari Kabab, Keema goli and mutton curry. The toothsome Bihari Kabab was indeed a revelation. The no-frills, unique cooking technique, and century-old expertise resulted in a humble looking delicacy that amazes you with its flavours and textures. Furthermore, both the mutton keema goli that had sattu in it and the traditional thick and rich mutton curry were equally delectable. Just like the locals, we tried all of them with murmura or puffed rice. They were so good that their memories still delights us.
We ended the food tour with a paan, that is believed to aid digestion and truly need some help to digest all those delicious stuff that we had savored in this gratifying exploration. We thank Mayank for acquainting us with the phenomenal mustard dominant non-veg delicacies in Patna. Till next time keep walking and keep exploring.
