This article is to talk about this one signature dish the chef concocted. It’s unremitting title is, Char-grilled Silver Pomfret And Kaffir Infusion With Coconut Rice. The inescapable Anglo Indian influences, “kaffir”, “moilee” coupled with this whole new age cooking business of “infusion” means this is one pomfret that should not go untasted.
