Rashmi Kuchhal narrated the story because of which she stands here. “For a moment, I was pushed back 34 years when Shashi & I started Handi. The years flashed by in a series of pictures of dreams, happiness, sacrifice, pain, love, anguish and joy.
Today, I have received this award for my father who taught me the true meaning of hospitality and my mother who guided me to be a businessperson first and the woman later.
My sons, daughters- in- laws, and friends; each one of you have been a part of this journey. The wonderful staff at Handi and my beloved precious customers of Handi – today each one of you stand by me.
I would not have reached here without the unflinching support and guidance of my dear friend Gurinder”.

The event was enlightened as there was a stall to relish the Handi delicacies and indulge in the victory celebration. We are truly thankful to the jury and all those who voted for us.

The Best Awadhi Food in Jaipur

In Jaipur, where should one go to savor authentic flavors of Awadhi Cuisine? Seeing the evolving scenario of restaurants in the city, options are plenty. But a count of eateries, where one could relish Lucknow originated gastronomies with the original aroma, taste and texture is limited. And with pride, we would like to add that Handi Restaurant, a paradise of non-veg lovers is one of them.

From our menu that may appear to you overburdened with choices, ‘Awadhi Mutton Biryani’ is a must-try. Different in cooking style from regular biryanis, this delicately flavored mutton dish is a sure winner and hard to pass up from our list of options. The dish uses cooked meat and prepared with a long list of ingredients. Having just the right balance of all masalas, this classic appetizer is a good bet. This delicious and sinful biryani is best eaten with curd. So bring-in delightful flavors of Awadhi cuisine to your weekend and make it absolutely divine at Handi Restaurant, Jaipur.

Hot & Spicy Laal Maas

Could you think of a better way to spend your weekend than devouring royal delicacies?  Laal Maas or red hot meat curry is a well known authentic traditional dish from Rajasthan. As the name suggests, this is an intensely spicy dish and it gets its warm vibrant red color from nothing but the red chili peppers which is used to cook it. The dish is too delicious to melt in mouth.

laal maas at handi Jaipur
‘Laal Maas’ was a favorite of the gallant Rajput clan. The meat that was caught during hunts was cooked in dry red chillies and whole spices and was simmered in huge handis for hours together. Tomatoes and other vegetables were not native to the land, so chillies and spices were all they had to create the dynamite called ‘Laal Maas’. The meat was then served to the kings in beautiful brassware.
