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.
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 launching its first ‘Shikar and Biryani Food Festival’ from the 26 March – 5 April 2019 (6 pm – 11 pm). 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!
Chingari which translates as ‘sparkling charcoal’ delightfully crackles with authenticity and brings genuine Tandoor cuisine to Doha. Dine in the splendour of the Maharaja as you feast on our irresistible meals, marinated to perfection and cooked in traditional clay ovens, whilst musicians sing sweet ghazels, the sound of India.
