Art of Dum, a gourmet delivery kitchen brand, after a successful launch in Mumbai has now set foot in Bengaluru. A cloud kitchen venture by Sanjay Vazirani’s Foodlink, one of India’s largest F&B service companies, the brand offers delicious, authentic flavours and elegant, sustainable packaging to the dining elite. Art of Dum follows the traditional ‘Dum Pukht’ style of slow cooking, something that is rarely heard of in the cloud kitchen format. The creations by the Chefs pay homage to the culinary heritage of the royal kitchens of Awadh, characterised by rich aromas and flavours. The Dum Pukht style of slow cooking refers to letting the dishes breathe in their own aromas and juices. It is this technique that works like magic to beautifully infuse flavours from the various spices and herbs, making each dish a delight for the senses.
The Dum Pukht style of cooking takes hours of preparation, hence challenging the modern-day norm of ready to eat food that is prevalent in the delivery kitchen space. Art of Dum offers a traditional and healthier alternative with Dum Pukht dishes cooking in sealed clay pots, that keeps the flavours, taste as well as the nutrition of the food intact. Dishes like the signature Dal Makhani are slow cooked for close to 24 hours, the Dum Handi ka Gosht takes six hours and the Chulhey ka Dum Murgh takes two hours to cook. Completing the at-home luxury dining experience is premium packaging with an emphasis on sustainability. This is seen via the brand’s use of reusable premium quality glass jars, clay handis and steel cutlery. The brand also encourages its customers to reuse and recycle their packaging.
Diners can enjoy a wide variety of dishes, including a range of signature dishes. This includes Appetizers such as Rajma ke Galouti, perfectly soft-cooked rajma blended in Awadhi spice, smoked and finished with Kewra water; Dum Pukht Kakori, a delicate kebab of finely-minced mutton, flavoured with cloves and cinnamon, wrapped around a skewer and chargrilled; and Handi Nimbu Chicken, lemon-flavoured chicken cooked in a sealed clay pot, with notes of green chili and cream; Main Courses like Kumbh Dum Dama Dum, farm-fresh button mushrooms slow-cooked in a tomato and cashew nut-based aromatic gravy, imbued with fennel and dried ginger; Gosht Korma Shahjahani, boneless mutton chunks cooked with caramelized onions and nuts in a saffron-infused gravy; and Palak, Singhada, Makhana, creamy spinach cooked with water chestnuts and lotus seeds, finished with butter.
