Cuisino is a new delivery place in Gurgaon serving up some delicious North Indian dishes. They operate from 12pm to 3pm and then from 7pm way up to 2am. What makes them unique is their eco-friendly packaging- all their dishes come in microwave-friendly earthen pots which can be reused. As for the dishes too, they are focused on slow cooking for long hours to ensure the ingredients retain their flavors.The Kaziranga Murg has slow roasted pieces of chicken prepared using spices found locally in Kaziranga. The chicken had a nice char on the outside and were coated with a green marinade made with coriander, mint and other herbs and spices which gave the chicken a lovely flavor. The chicken came in a big earthen pot along with some seeds which can be planted in the same pot to reuse it as a plant pot.The Akbari Dal Makhani was rich, creamy and velvety smooth, and had a robust flavor which can only come through slow cooking. The dal had been left to simmer overnight in the tandoor and then had been imparted a smoky flavor with a charcoal. The tempering with ghee and butter on top added to the richness and flavor of the dal, making it one of the best dals I’ve tasted in a while.
The Murg Adraki Dhaniya had chicken marinated for two days in a paste of coriander and ginger before being slow cooked over low heat for one more day. This process ensured the flavors had deeply penetrated the chicken while still leaving the chicken juicy and moist. The thick gravy had a lovely flavor of whole spices as well.
The Roghan Handi Gosht was another great dish consisting of mutton cooked for hours on woodfire to make the meat tender and beautifully aromatic. The gravy had a deep red color but was not overly spicy, and instead derived its deep flavors from the medley of spices used in it.We enjoyed these dishes with some nicely made, thin tandoori rotis and naan.
Overall, Cuisino is highly recommended for its delicious, slow cooked food which has amazing flavors only food cooked with love and labor can have. Also, their initiative to use earthen pots is not only environment-friendly but also imparts a nice earthy flavor to the food. This place is a must-try!
