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…

Here we have the HUGE Tawa from @annajeebhq Leicester. We ordered the Tawa option for ‘6 people’, but were totally stuffed & had leftovers to take home too & there were 7 of us! You have the full range of Kebabs, Chops, Chicken Tikka, Tandoori Wings, Tandoori Chicken, Peshwari Chicken, Tawa Lamb, Chips, Naan & Rice 🙈 We had to order a jugs of their refreshing Lime & Mint and Strawberry Mocktails of course, to help knock it all down 😊 We were really pleased to have prayed our Asr in the dedicated prayer room; the waiter told us they also hold Jumu’ah at the Restaurant too, Masha’Allah! The Restaurant offers Purdah facilities for smaller groups & have customer parking located a few minutes away. Details can be found on @annajeebhq website. An Najeeb is fully @hmc_uk certified, ensuring all chicken & meat is non-stunned & hand zabiha only! #HFGLeicester #HFGPrayerroom #HFGPardah #Annajeeb

Here we have one of my favourites from @saffronkitchen the Butter Chicken 😋. Ever since I had the authentic tomato based butter chicken in Delhi, India; I’ve travelled the country trying to find something that tastes similar. I must say the butter chicken from saffron kitchen is the closest dish that brings back those memories from my time in India. Buttery, slightly sweet tomato based gravy with subtle spice undertones and tender marinated chicken pieces, this dish will surely satisfy your tasfe buds! On the top left we have the chicken jalfrezi which had a nice kick to it and the peppers added the authentic jalfrezi flavour to the dish. Both dish’s were accompanied with butter naan and pilau rice, however if you go for the butter chicken then you definitely need to try it with the butter naan. Saffron Kitchen are fully @hmc_uk Certified so rest assured everything is non stunned with hand zabiha. They also have two prayer rooms so ladies & men can pray separately rather than having to wait. #HFGLondon #HFGPrayerroom #saffronkitchen #HFGPardah

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

Having holiday blues from Turkey? Head down to @aziziye_restaurant for a traditional Turkish experience in dining and yummy kebabs! This one’s the delicious Adana Kebab served with fluffy rice and salad. Really love how they have the booths that give that added privacy. Alhamdulilah the restaurant is situated underneath the Aziziye Camii (Masjid). The building looks amazing as the decor and design of the restaurant makes you feel like your in Turkey again 💗 They also have their own @hmc_uk certified butcher so everything is freshly done on-site. Full review is on the website check the link in the bio & head over to the London category 😉 We’re glad the Restaurant is still @hmc_uk certified & we’re hoping it stays that way too, after seeing a couple of nice Turkish restaurants we’ve been to in London recently have their status removed. #HFGLondon #HFGPrayerRoom #HFGPardah #aziziyerestaurant

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
