Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable - Banksy
Cooking is an art, but what happens when you relish your favorite food by enjoying some real art works by a famous persona? It's a great feeling when you visit Banjara Melting Pot (BMP in short) which was once the house of maestro of Modern Art - M.F.Hussain. At BMP; the house which turned into a restaurant, you will feel the Hussain touch everywhere with his marvelous paintings.
BMP serves Indian, Pan Asian and also specialized in Coastal dishes. They serve buffet as well as a la carte. I knew that after a heavy dinner I will just go home and sleep. So my dinner started with a nice and strong cocktail, 'Screwdriver' which is nothing but Orange juice and Vodka.
Veg - Cheez aur Sabz ki Sheekh, Paneer ke Shikanje, Mushroom Galouti and Dragon Roll.
Both veg and non veg starters were really good; especially the non veg starters were phenomenal. If Murg Lalwari Kebab in skewers which is served in a Copper pot will surprise you, then Lucknowi Sheekh Kebab and Prawns Ghee Roast will dance in your mouth. Reshmi Tangdi Lassoni was simply superb.
Veg - Vegetable Gassi, Subzi Jalfreizi, Amritsari Dal, and Veg Biriyani
Non Veg - Rajasthani Laal Maas, Tawa Chicken, Mangalorean Gassi (Fish), and Chicken Biriyani
Overall main course was fantastic with a satisfying plate of Rajasthani Laal Maas, Mangalorean Seer Fish Gassi, Subz Jalfreizi, Indian breads and two varieties of Biriyani. Mangalorean Gassi; chunks of Seer fish cooked in a coconut milk gravy is easily the best available in the Silicon Valley.
Methi Naan, Baby Butter Kulcha, and Neer Dosa - All three are my favorites. BMP known for its coastal delicacies can't fail when it comes to Neer Dosa. Light, melt-in-mouth Neer Dosa with a bowl of Seer Fish Gassi and Prawns ghee roast made me finger-licking awesome (sshhh.. I saved some Prawns Ghee roast which was served as starter, to have with Neer Dosa).
Doodhia (Bottle guard) Halwa - Doodhia Halwa was good. If you order this you will get a perfectly cooked halwa with right amount of sweetness in it and topped with dry fruits.
I am not sure whether having a glass of Mojito will help my digestion or not. But after a scrumptious meal it was quite needed. My meal ended with a classic Lemon Mojito.

Will I go back to BMP again? Yes! Ofcourse. This is the place for a relaxed fine dining experience and I would recommend BMP to all.
