Tawa pulao — Indian vegetable fried rice. That cast iron griddle is a tawa. Tawa pulao is not very common in Mumbai but it’s fun to indulge when you do run into it. This is essentially a stir fried rice. Pulaos come from the Middle East… and they go right in your tummy!

Belacan fried rice with crispy dry shrimp and shrimp paste
Garnished with sweet omelette, sweet chicken, green mango, Thai chili, long beans, onions and cucumbers. Super sour green mangos go so well with the sweet chicken and the deep flavors of the shrimp paste fried rice. This is a fascinating plate with great colors, textures and flavors.
