29th of May, 2002

In the past year, we have had two birthday celebrations and a couple of meals in Mumbai Premier Indian Restaurant, which were all very pleasurable experiences.

Each time, the manager greeted us welcomingly, and found us a seat in what was to be a full restaurant. He then helped us choose a great selection of dishes, including the one below.

On these occasions, we ate one of the Mumbai specials, a Narangi chicken dish, described in the menu as 'Chicken, cooked in a mild sauce consisting of almonds, fresh orange and cream'. The manager helpfully explained the origin of the word 'narangi', which, incidentally, does not mean 'orange', but 'fragrant'. The meal arrived quickly, and was very pleasant.

Up until when we were given an assignment at my school, Stockport Grammar School, I had never thought about what happened behind the scenes. I suppose I had imagined that all food was made at a kitchen somewhere and was put into the freezer, and was just heated and served when someone ordered it.

When I decided that I wanted the recipe for Narangi, to make at school, the restaurant was very helpful. "Come down one night and we'll show you how to make it." they said. So I did.

When my mum and I got there, we were shown upstairs, told to wash our hands, and taken into the kitchen. The friendly chef was busily chopping and mixing, so we stood back for a minute until he had finished the order. This was a Tuesday night, which I would have imagined as one of the quietest nights of the week, but at eight o'clock the kitchen was buzzing with activity.

The chef showed us the ingredients we would need, and started me frying the onions. When he decided I they were done, a complete demonstration of the dish followed, which at the end of the evening I could take home with me. All the food was freshly prepared, right from scratch, and hygiene was great.

My dish was perfect for school, and everything went as planned. I would thouroughly recommend this restaurant to everyone, as it is a guaranteed good meal, well presented and with a friendly atmosphere!
