Mumbai: Yunnan cuisine, which is also known as the Dian cuisine, is a cuisine that commemorates the local flavours of the Han Chinese and other minority groups of the Yunnan region.
The blend of Southeast flavours is what sets this cuisine apart from the typical Chinese cuisine that you might have tried so far. This food is more on the spicier side and several dishes are cooked in mala spices which have been sourced from the Nantong province of China.
The cuisine is prepared by using some ancient cooking styles and techniques, which include using hollow bamboo barks and wrapping food in lotus leaf and steaming. The use of this technique is what keeps its authentic taste and flavour intact.
Some of the dishes which find mention in this menu are: Spicy lemon okra soup, Yunnan tender chicken hot pot, Da Jua Jia – rice cakes with mixed seafood, sea bass ginger soy and many more. The menu has been specially curated by Neeti Goyal, the face behind Keiba, which caters the taste buds of both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian food lovers....
