Chef Paul Kinny's Monsoon Recipes

  By KYMBERLEE FERNANDES   Jul 3rd 2012 at 6:00AM Lifestyle RATED


Are you prepared for the monsoons? Dome, the gorgeous roof-top bar-cum-restaurant at the Intercontinental, definitely is. They’ve created a new setting, and a new menu that’s been put together by acclaimed chef, Paul Kinny.

On the new menu are dishes like lemongrass seafood skewers with home-made sweet tomato jam, Arabian Sea prawns skewers with a chilly glaze and lemon butter, Brazilian tenderloin and spiced potato skewers with a three mustard dip (which were yum, fyi); and five-spiced meat ball skewers paired with a light soya garlic sauce, the meat-eating folks would be more than satisfied.
And as for the vegetarian food, we loved the stuffed Bhavnagari chilli tempura (with four types of cheese). There’s also lemon paprika corn, cottage cheese skewers, Cajun mushroom & water chestnut skewers and chilli pineapple and vegetable skewers on the new Dome menu.

After sampling Kinny’s delectable skewers we got the chef to tell us about his favourite monsoon dish. And he replied quicker than ever that his personal favourite dish is, “Lime and salt rubbed corn. But I also prefer hot tea and puff pastries. When I’m in a mood for soup, I make a puree of the same roasted corn spiked with lime and salt, so it’s like a double treat of having bhutta (corn) in a cup”.

He suggested every foodie try these recipes this monsoon:
