Babur, the award-winning and critically acclaimed Indian restaurant in Southeast London, is will celebrate their 39th anniversary on 17th July.

To mark the occasion, Babur’s chefs have put together a limited-edition menu inspired by Maharashtra, a diverse region in India spanning palm-fringed beaches, bustling cosmopolitan cities, and lofty, cool, green mountains.

The menu will launch at a flavour-fuelled Bollywood-infused party taking place at Babur on Wednesday 17th July.

From 6:30pm guests will enjoy a 5-course tasting menu spanning the length and breadth of Maharashtra, expertly paired wines, and live entertainment from the Bollywood Vibes dance group.

Starters include Vada Pav, a combination of spiced purple potato, deep fried and placed in a charcoal brioche with mint sauce and pickled onion.  Fish Koliwada (Koliwada meaning ‘a fisherman’s colony’); a dish of fried fish served with  kaanda kairi chutney and, Teesryachi Amti (clam with drumstick and plain dosa).

Mains include a CKP Mutton Curry from the city of Parbhani; and traditional Maharashtrian Silver Pomfret Rassa curry with mango and fresh coconut. Vegan-friendly Bharli Vangi – authentic stuffed brinjal (aubergine) with fluffy sabudana khichdi and black truffle oil – represents the ancient holy city of Nashik on the banks of the river Godavari; whilst coriander and spinach gram flour cake alu Vadi patra with Maharashtrian Kadhi sauce, is reminiscent of the street food enjoyed in Pune.

Dessert comes from port city Ratnagiri’s chilled Aamras Gola; a kulfi made from the pulp of ripe mangos with chia seeds, Gond Katira, and Bombay halwa.

The anniversary menu will be served daily until 17th September.
