Prasad Dhaneshwar, chef/proprietor, said: “We thought we'd invite Dave whom we know does a great deal for the local community. That fits with us as we're always looking to collaborate and get involved with other like-minded people.”

The new menu includes dishes such as Thakkali Rasam, Gunpowder Masala Idli, Niligiri Murgh Tikka, a special Mother’s style Sambar, Kongunadu Kozhi Kuzhambu, Coromandel Lamb Curry, King Prawn Thokku, and the Madras Filter Coffee palate cleanser, in which Prasad has incorporated his own special twist.

Prasad spent four weeks in Chennai last November, during which time he researched his new menu.

He said: “Coconut, curry leaves, mustard seeds, rice, dal or legumes are cornerstones of Southern Indian cooking. The region is blessed with a large variety of agricultural vegetation and produce owing to with good rains and fertile lands. The proximity to the coast means fresh seafood throughout the year as well.”

“This is the “Land of Spices”, and that is very much reflected in the cuisine as well. Cardamom, pepper, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon are some of the important spices used in the Southern Indian cuisine. All in all, it is a truly inspiring region for me to explore through a new tasting menu.”

With Dhoom having already taken its customers on a culinary journey across eleven different landscapes of India, Prasad hopes that his guests “will show love and support to their 12th journey to Chennai, cherishing this completely different and new experience of the cuisine of the Southern Coast of India.”

“I will keep going back to the streets of India and looking for something different, something unique and authentic,” he said. “I want to explore as many different regions, and part of India as possible, to keep bringing back that flavour, that colour, that taste sensation to Dhoom.”
