Healthy Eating Choices

Indian meals can be a great choice for healthy eating because the spices mean that even a small portion can satisfy your taste buds. Indian meals are often considered unhealthy (especially calorie-wise) because of the high quantities of butter, oil, ghee or dairy products used in the cooking process. However, many of the meals on our menu (more details below) specifically avoid these ingredients and for the discerning diner we have prepared this guide to help you keep those pounds off without missing out on the pleasurable experience of dining at Mahmaan.

Starters & Sundries

The healthiest option on our starter menu has to be Poppadoms and Pickles. In addition, to enjoy with your meal we would recommend choosing boiled rice (about half the calories of pilau rice) and/or a roti or chapatti (wholemeal and sugar/egg free) in place of a Naan bread.

Main Meals

You will find that tandoori, tikka and bhuna dishes tend to be good healthy choices because they are dry dishes. Meals cooked or served with creamy or rich sauces are usually much higher in calorie content, e.g. Masala, Pasanda. Two tips to enjoy any Indian meal whilst avoiding high calories are:
1. Spoon as much of the meat as you want onto your place whilst leaving more of the sauce in the dish, and
2. If you can bear it, go for a hotter strength, this will make is less likely that you’ll eat too much!

Here are our top recommendations for healthy eating at Mahmaan:

  1. Monk-Fish Narangi – Monkfish is very low in fat, carbohydrates and calories, whilst being a rich source of protein and vitamin B12. This dish is also cooked in mustard oil, rather than butter or ghee, a traditional method in West Bengal where it is prized for its pungent and sharp flavour.
  2. Shahi Sheekra – Grilled lamb or chicken with a delicious spicy barbecue taste mixed with peppers and onions. This is a dryer dish than most as it’s not cooked in oil or butter.
  3. Lamb Tikka – Specially selected backstrap cuts ensure that we always serve lamb which is both lean and very succulent. The lamb tikka is cooked on skewers in the tandoor, so again no oils or butter are used in the cooking process.
  4. Makhani – This dish is cooked in a mixture of Makhan (extracted from cows milk) and yoghurt.

Varietal Selection

We have chosen our varietal selection extremely carefully and have decided upon the ‘Pure’ range as they truly represent the very best in the Mediterranean style.

 

White Wines

Pure Sauignon Blanc

Overt, up front bouquet of grapefruit & citrus zest, quenching and long on the finish.

Pinot Grigio

Pure, Girelli (Italy) high altitude from the foothills of the Dolomites, light clean fruits with a touch of almonds.

Colombard Chardonnay 2004

Sandford Estate (Australia). A wonderful open expression of aromatic bouquet & rich fruity palate in a lemon zest.

Chenin Blanc 2005

Drakensberg (South Africa) From Paarl, crisp qenching wine with a long steely finish.

Suvignon Blanc 2005

Finca El Picador (Chile). Grassy & quenching with a firm aroma of gooseberry and tropical green fruits.

 

 

Rose Wines

Pure Pink

Not an ordinary Rose! The wine is made by carefully ‘bleeding’ the grape allowing full integration of colour & fruit.

 

 

 

 

Red Wines

Pure Merlot

Rich, soft jamy fruit tones with a long satisfying finish.

Pure Shiraz

Huge brooding bouquet with typical dried fruit, cherry and spice on the palate.

Pinotage 2004

Drakensberg (South Africa). Big rustic wine softened by 20% ageing in American oak barrels – stunning!

Rioja Vega Sin Crianza 2005

Bodega Muerza (Spain). A silky fruity wine with a little spice.

Pinot Noir

Las Manitos Mendoza – Soft simple wine with attractive & very ripe fruit on the palette.

 

Sparkling Wine & Champange

Cava

Castell d’Olerdola Brut Reserve. Actually a favourite of King Juan Carlos.

Moet Chandon

A champagne that needs no introduction. This premier Cuvee has a dry, dstinctive appeal. It is fine and elegant.

Bollinger Special Cuvee

Bolly enjoys a fine place amongst all the great Champagnes, lemon bouquet, elegant long fish.

Dom Perignon

Elegant in style with undertones of almond on the palate with a gloriously long finish. This wine is a testament to Moet’s supreme skill in selection and blendng of some of the finest cuvees, all from the Premier Cru 100% vineyards.

Louis Roederer Cristal

The epitome of the finest, elegant, amazingly long Champagne from the best Premier Cru vineyards.
