The Indian Ambassador to the State of Qatar led the ribbon cutting ceremony and the opening of the first Shikar & Biryani Food Festival at Chingari, in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha.
On Tuesday, 26 March 2019, the first Shikar & Biryani Food Festival was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by the Indian Ambassador HE Kumaran and the General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha, Gordon Mackenzie. The highly anticipated food festival will run daily from 26 March – 5 April 2019 from 6 pm-11 pm.
A brief background about the early hunting history in India during the nineteenth and early twentieth century of the British Empire, the rulers of Indian princely states along with the British Army Commanders used to hunt in the wild and bring the game or Shikar to their royal kitchens to be cooked by their Master Chefs.
On the other hand, biryani is a mix of the native spicy rice dishes of India and the Persian pilaf. It is believed that the dish originated in Persia and was brought to India by the Mughals. After the Mughals left, this dish was adopted by the royal kitchens and since then became a staple all over the continent.
In celebration of this rich history, Chingari is launched its first Shikar and Biryani Food Festival. During this event, you will get a chance to experience and taste some of the dishes from the royal kitchens of India. It is, however, worth noting that only farm bred animals are used in our kitchen.
