Special Roasts at Zouk See East Meet West
Special Roasts at Zouk
Admit it, just the words roast dinner are enough to get your taste buds tingling. Imagine the famous British dish served with succulent meat, seasonal vegetables and lashings of gravy! The innovative chefs at Zouk have been working to add a little spice to the classic dish and have created tasty Special Roasts with meats served in an Indian style Balochi marinade.
Whole Lamb & Leg of Lamb
Perfect for a family meal, Zouk’s whole leg of lamb serves four people and is a great choice for a special occasion. This sumptuous lamb is marinated for six hours in spices which include a mix of yoghurt, mustard oil and a heady mix of aromatic spices. Fenugreek, chilli, ginger and garlic all go into the mix along with Zouk’s own Tikka paste. For bigger parties, the Whole Roast Lamb can serve up to ten people and is marinated in the same Zouk sauce before being stuffed with a spiced rice. All good things come to those who wait, and Zouks lamb is slow-cooked until the meat is beautiful and tender.
Whole Chicken Special Roasts
Food lovers will be happy to know that the typical roast chicken dish has been transformed into a new fun and spicy Indian meal. Zouks Whole Chicken Roast can serve two people (or one particularly hungry person), and is marinated in the Balochi sauce and served with a spicy tikka gravy to pack an extra punch.The Whole Roast Chicken comes with all the trimmings
As with any good roast, the Zouk Special Roasts are each served up with fresh seasonal vegetables and new potatoes which are burnished, gleaming and roasted in their skins. Last but by no means least, is gravy. Lashings and lashings of thick gravy which is built up from simmering bones and with an added hint of spice from Chili, garlic and ginger to complete the zingy flavour.
We asked Zouks Creative Director Mudassar Amjad why he created these new dishes to the menu:
I’ve always loved the traditional British Roast. I mean, what’s not to love? It’s so homely, comforting and satisfying. Our Zouk roasts have layers of flavour and we’ve adapted the traditional Balochi spice blends and cooking techniques so we can achieve the same flavours by slowly roasting the meats. Adding roast potatoes and green vegetables sautéed with fresh chillies may not be traditional but the result is a perfect combination of East meets West. Once you’ve tried it you wont want a roast any other way. The spices and the slow cooking combined make the meats so juicy and tender.
