21 GunSalute Resturant
The royal kitchens were a treasure trove of recipes. The Maharajas loved good food and food in the royal rasois was a form of celebration. There was no place for the ordinary. Kitchens thrived on new discovery, experimentation with local and global food, exotic preparations and grand meals. Each royal family closely guarded their culinary recipes and their khansamas like treasures. Chief among these were the 21 Gun Salute States - the princely states that ranked the highest in terms of honour.
Now, nearly six years after Independence, as some of the aromas, the flavours and art of royal cooking are at the risk of getting lost, there is an effort to document and pass on the secrets to the next generation. Hosts of the royal palaces are opening their recipe books to contribute to the experimental culinary wave sweeping through urban India.
21 Gun Salute was founded by Mr Madan Mohan with a mission to capture this heritage food tastes and unique recipes that emerged from the Royal Rasois - especially of the 21 Gun Salute states. For this, the 21 Gun Salute team has sourced recipes from the royal palaces of erstwhile Mewar, Jammu and Kashmir, Gwalior, Baroda, Hyderabad and Mysore.
?Royal Indian cuisine is a product of years of experimentation. The Maharajas loved their food and each chef was encouraged to experiment. In the palaces, khanshamas protected secret recipes and didn't even share them with the begums. But those original recipes are slowly getting lost. Our endeavour was to search those recipes and reproduce it the way it was served originally in the palaces of the five 21 Gun Salute states. We were lucky to get the training of the Khansamas of some royal families to recreate these dishes,? says Madan Mohan, who is also a collector of vintage cars.
At 21 Gun Salute Restaurant, located in Gurgaon?s Sector 29, you are welcome to experience the same traditions of monarchical dignity and sheer aristocratic elegance on a platter. The effort is to offer guests a taste of Indian Royalty that they are not likely to forget.
