Hottest new trend in town for weddings, engagements and get-togethers is the ever loved Ouzi, introduced here in Chennai by Mashawi. It is a catering service, part of the famous brand in Dubai – Chef al-Khaleej.
Ouzi is a traditional Middle Eastern dish where a whole lamb or chicken is marinated with delicious spices and herbs and cooked for long hours and served along with the all the masala, spices, aromatic rice, curried eggs and potatoes and dry fruits. It’s a complete and wholesome meal by itself! The eggs and potatoes are cooked spot on, the spice-soaked in all the way through. We got to try it out and we loved it! We liked both the lamb and chicken versions, of course, but the lamb would EASILY steal the show. The meat is oh-so-tender that you can actually cut through with just a spoon! The lamb was slightly more tender than the chicken with spices soaked through. Think succulent, think Ouzi. And Mashawi is THE place for this.
They have quite many options in these plates to choose from. Lamb comes with 3 size options: Quarter portion which serves about 10 people, Half portion serves about 18 and a full lamb serves almost 30 people! These range between Rs. 2500 and Rs. 8000. Chicken plates come with a minimum of 3 whole chickens, serving about 8 people, starting at Rs. 399 per chicken. Mashawi is a catering service and an order for the Ouzis have to be place a day before so that the slow cooking of the meat will be on point. The process of their service is extremely simple and straightforward. These would serve as terrific meals in weddings and get-togethers to make the event cherished. Ouzi is traditional, and serving Ouzi as a celebratory meal makes the occasion a lot more special and unique.
