Traditional dishes on offer at Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre

Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre

In Sweety Singh's kitchen, spice is the variety of life – and luckily the celebrity chef is back in Dubai until Saturday August 18.

The Indian mastermind will be cooking up delicious dishes at five-star hotel Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre.

Chef Sweety will be serving up a unique lunch and dinner set menu along with traditional “Art of Spice” nights showing off authentic slow cooking techniques.

The signature recipes will include traditional homely Punjabi dishes such as bhuna makhani kukkad (chicken chunks marinated in cream and spices), paratdar bharwan paneer tikka (fried chunks of cheese), makhni shagna wali daal (spiced lentils) and kesari halwa (a sweet Indian dish).

At the Friday night feasts, guests can enjoy traditional fare between 7pm to 11pm in the hotel's Medley Restaurant.

With Indian Independence Day coming up on Wednesday August 15, it's the perfect time to book in for a traditional meal.

If you're looking for something a bit different, Taj Dubai will also be hosting celebrations.

On Wednesday August 15 there are two separate events at the Business Bay hotel, so whether you’re after an afternoon of unlimited chaat or a set meal in the evening, you’re in luck.

Byzantium Lounge at Taj Dubai is celebrating with a chaat wala – an authentic Indian hors d'oeuvre trolley – so you can choose all your favourite street foods including paani poori, papdi chaat, dahi bhalla and jhaal mudi.

Once you’ve had your fill, it’s time for a cup of masala chai and classic glucose biscuits, all for just Dhs99.

It runs from 2pm until 6pm so you’ve got plenty of time to try it all out.

Meanwhile, Bombay Brasserie is hosting a regal dinner, with a five-course menu.

The special menu will run daily from Thursday August 9 until Wednesday August 15 costing Dhs295 per person.

Dishes include steamed mustard jumbo prawns, king fish wrapped in a banana leaf and lamb kacchi biryani.

Veggie dishes include morel biryani and charcoal smoked soya nuggets.

It will all be rounded off with gram flour-ghee cake.
