Roomali

This is where Halal Food Gastronomy (HFG) was born so it would be wrong for it not to be my first post. It all started when we decided to take a trip down to blackburn one evening as we were craving a curry. One of my close friends highly recommended this restaurant and gosh I was shocked to see the standard of the food as It was amazing and delicious! It has also stood the test of time with multiple…

The @theclovecafeandbistro Desi Breakfast is SO good that it makes the family fighting for the last piece! As you can see they serve quite a few mouthwatering options: Desi Omelette with soft and fluffy Puri’s, Chicken curry which is just AH-MAZING, Chana Chaat, Tortilla strips and crispy Pakoras. All to dip with their sweet Mango pulp & green Chutney. My favourite was the chicken curry which stole the limelight, the level of spices within the masala was rich and an aromatic potency that simply pushed our senses to the edge! Alhamdulillah @theclovecafeandbistro is @hmc_uk Certified so rest assured everything is non stunned with hand zabiha. Prayer room is available upstairs upon entry and Pardah is also available الحمد لله #HFGBlackburn #theclovecafeandbistro #HFGPrayerRoom #HFGPardah #HMCApproved

<< SWIPE LEFT TO SEE THE VIDEO << Beautiful Chicken Tagine Special slow cooked for 6 hours on a slow heat, accompanied with soft and fluffy potatoes, peas, fresh herbs and topped off with chilli. One of my absolute FAV Moroccan dishes and I must admit, @theclovecafeandbistro (based in Blackburn) nailed it 🔨 on the head. Tasted exactly how my Moroccan Aunt makes it and it took me back to my childhood. The flavour the Tagine pot gives the chicken is Tremendous - effortlessly falls off the bone and the fresh herbs gives an aromatic taste leaving you wanting more! It might not be to everyone's liking as Moroccan dishes don't have masala in them, but I sure LOVED it. Make sure you order in advance due to the length of time it takes to cook. Alhamdulillah @theclovecafeandbistro is @hmc_uk Certified. They also have a Prayer Room upstairs and also Pardah dividers are available. #HFGBlackburn #HFGPardah #HFGPrayerRoom #HMCApproved #TheClove

Don’t judge me guys, just trust me on this one 🙈 this is….wait for it… a BLOOMING BIRYANI ARANCINI from @thefig_theolive based in Blackburn. Yep you heard it right here folks. It’s a medium sized ball stuffed with chicken biryani, coated in breadcrumbs and then deep fried to a golden perfection. Garnished with a yoghurt sauce and a sprinkle of Chevra on top. On a bed of onion Raita. Yummy! This is something I was apprehensive in trying because it sounds so bizarre to me but I took the risk & it sure payed off! This is quite inventive which has been brought to Indian cuisine. Very cleverly thought, I can confirm it was absolutely delish. The biryani was so tasty that when we took our first bite, a rush of flavour overpowered our tastebuds with the spices. It was nice and spicy. They also do a Daal Chawal Arancini and I can’t wait to try it. Will definitely come back again! The Fig and Olive are @hmc_uk Certified so no worries about whether it is stunned or not! Alhamdulilah The Fig & Olive are very accommodating RE Salah & will use the pardah boards to allow you to perform Salah within the restaurant. #HFGBlackburn #thefigandolive #thefigandtheolive #HMCApproved #HFGPrayerRoom

I couldn’t resist in doing another post on the food from @Roomaliblackburn guys! 🙈 If you are in a group I highly recommend you to book the “Dastarkhan” table where groups of 5-8 can sit on traditional floor cushions with a slightly elevated table and enjoy their meal. Its always fully booked on weekends. It has a Moroccan theme to it which is great for occasions. With curtains to accommodate for those who require pardah. We had two Masala Chips, Keema Karahi (on the right) which is my favourite dish they do, it goes so well with the paratha. Chicken tikka masala (orange/red), Butter chicken (middle), Lamb Karahi (left) and a Roomali Red mocktail (bottom). The Roomali red is one of the few Syrup based Mocktails I enjoy as the blend is just right. The dishes are always amazing, definitely one to try out! @roomaliblackburn are also HMC certified so you can rest assured everything is un stunned. They also have Salah facilities available which is great when traveling. #Roomali #HFGBlackburn #HFGPardah #HFGPrayerRoom

Now we have one of my favourite places for Indian food, especially dishes. Highly recommended the Keema Karahi from @roomaliblackburn it goes really well with their Paratha which has a great flakey texture. The staff are friendly & the management are extremely accommodating of my fussy requests. It’s a family run business & they take food seriously. They also have a small prayer room upstairs which is great when you are travelling. They do have areas that accommodate for pardah and are @hmc_uk certified. For those who are going as a group, I highly recommended you try to book the Dastarkhan area which is a booth with cushions allowing you to sit on the ground with a slightly elevated table. In the picture, you have a Chicken Tikka Masala (which is the creamy type but still has a nice flavour) a Prawn Karahi & my personal favourite Keema Karahi with their lovely Paratha. #HFGBlackburn #HMCApproved #HFGPrayerRoom #HFGPardah

The yummy chocolate brownies @heavenlydesserts are a must! They were a perfect consistency and by far some of the best brownies I’ve had! Loved how the brownies were stacked in threes, then drizzled with melted white chocolate and Belgian chocolate, as well as chocolate shards to make them even better. Although they look tiny we struggled to finish them between us! Thankyou for the invite to the V.I.P launch of your new branch in Bradford! Don’t forget to read all about all the heavenly desserts we had in the full review on the Blog 😊 (link is in the bio). #HFGbradford #HFGdessert #HFGprayerroom Heavenly Desserts also have branches at the following #HFGliverpool #HFGpreston #HFGbirmingham #HFGleicester #HFGblackburn #heavenlydesserts
