Mathura at Home

The Blurb

Based in the heart of Westminster in an expertly restored former fire station, Mathura presents fine dining by chef Atul Kochhar (of Benares and Tamarind fame). While India is the headliner in terms of influence, the exciting dishes at Mathura also take inspiration from other countries including Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, China and Myanmar (Burma). Mathura at Home is a new delivery option that launched in January and features an A La Carte menu of favourite dishes and three-set bundle menus: The Atul Kochhar Bundle, The Mathura Bundle, and The Mathura Vegetarian Bundle.

The Experience & The Food

While Mathura at Home’s A La Carte delivery menu offers plenty of highlights like Atul‘s Murgh Tikka Pie and Mathura Signature Dal Bukhara (black lentil and kidney beans slow-cooked for 36 hours), I opted for the ease and variety of The Mathura Bundle. Generously serving two, this bundle comes with a mix of crispy poppadom; Chopan Kebob (Namak Mandi Lamp Chops); Jujeh Kabob; Butter Chicken; Lamb Bhuna and Akbari Dal plus steamed rice and nan; Cucumber Mint Raita; Salaateh Afghani; and dessert of Gulab Jamun and Gajjar Halwa. Suffice to say there was plenty of food. While the delivery was super speedy, the food was slightly cold and benefited from being served on warm plates, however, it was all very securely and well packed. In fact, I really loved the packaging – everything is clearly and professionally labelled with not only the name of the dish but also a description (e.g. Jujeh Kabob: saffron and yoghurt marinated corn-fed chicken, served with beetroot chutney). The Jujeh chicken was spectacular, as was the Chopan Kebab – well-charred tandoori lamb chops served with a bright and fresh coriander and mint chutney. The curries were fantastic as well: the Butter Chicken was delicate and surprising, with plenty of aromatic flavours, and the Lamb Bhuna, tender lamb stewed with onions and garam masala was the winning dish, serving warming comfort with a kick of heat. The desserts didn’t disappoint either: the Gulab Jamun came swimming in a delicate bath of sugar syrup and the Gajjar Halwa, sweet carrots cooked down until soft and creamy with milk and cardamom, was another delicious surprise, with familiar notes but unexpected depth. Imaginative and sophisticated, Mathura at Home is the perfect antidote to your standard local Indian delivery.
