Chef Sujan Mukkerjee - Executive Chef; Taj Coromandel, Chennai chugs down the memoy lane to share a beautiful culin a y trail from Tamil Nadu's colonial times. The Anglo- Indian community has contributed to some of the mind blowing delicacies to Indian cuisine and the Southern Railway Mutton curry is one such dish. As the name suggests this recipe has deep connection with the railways. During the British Raj period, Anglo Indians had been a major work force of the railways, especially Loco pilots and butlers in the first class coaches in which the English travelled. This simple

dish made of mutton, pota and tamarind, first origin homes of these motor men. of tamarind ensured that the dish remained for a longer period during the travel and soon this recipe was adapted by the railway canteens and served in trains with breads and rolls. This dish was an instant hit with both the British and the general public as it accompanied well with rice too. This recipe is specifically called Southern Railway Mutton Curry because there are many variations and adaptations to this recipe in the Northern and Eastern railway zones as well, i.e. in all the routes that the trains travelled.

Situated right on the arterial road of Porur is the Paradise - the eatery famed for its biriyani. The huge parking lot and the long serpentine queue for takeaways itself is a testimony to its tagline "World's Favourite Biriyani". The dine-in ambiance holds a simple and practical approach to decor implying food as the main focus. The Kebab Starters are a meal in itself. Especially the Apollo Fish which is fried and crispy with green chilies and curry leaves. The crispness is sustained throughout the last crumble despite it being tossed in flavoursome yoghurt sauce. This alone makes the dish outstanding. The Murgh Sarfiya Kalimiri has a lot of biriyani flavor as its effused with warm cardamom. The black pepper gives it heat and the tandoor leaves it with
