Patra Khumb – A Truly One-of-a-Kind Dish from Chef Eric McCarthy
As the Executive Chef of a Michelin Star Restaurant, Chef Eric McCarthy is constantly challenged to innovate in the kitchen and push the boundaries of Indian cuisine. One of the ways in which he does this is by taking classic Indian dishes, and adding his own unique twist.
One such dish is Patra Khumb – which combines three classic Indian dishes into one culinary delight. Comprised of dahi kari (buttermilk curry), mushroom spiced potato tempura, and “Patra,” or taro leaves stuffed with rice and spices, Patra Khumb is a one-of-a-kind dish in a class of its own.
“The idea came to me because we get a lot of guest from New Jersey, who happen to be vegetarian and are from the region of Gujrat n konkan – where Patra is usually served. I combined three different vegetarian dishes, which each stand alone as starters, to make one unique dish. Each individual piece compliments the other components in the dish, resulting in something truly extraordinary.” says Chef McCarthy.
