The scene when you walk into this upscale Indian restaurant at the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai is dark and mysterious and really sets the mood for the dinner to follow. The red and black decor is appropriate as it directly correlates to Rang Mahal, the Red Fort in Delhi after which the restaurant is named. On this particular evening we were in for a treat as we prepared for the ultimate gastronomical adventure by none other than Michelin star chef Atul Kochhar, an event that was not to be missed!
The seared scallop pictured below is a dish that I was mildly familiar with. Featured at this past years Taste of Dubai festival, I remember trying out these little gems accompanied by the cauliflower puree and shaved cauliflower tendrils on top. The pairing of these two items together is one of my favorite flavor combinations and one I have created a recipe for myself as well (Seared Scallops with Curried Cauliflower Puree). Atul's version with the velvety smooth puree and perfectly seared scallop goes into the books as one of the loveliest executions of the modern Indian cuisine he has created.
