Short description- in case u r in a hurry
We had read about home chef Gul ali on the social media. Later, we met her in person at an interfaith iftar in which she & twelve other Muslim ladies had invited people from different faiths to participate in iftar, during the Ramzan 2022. We knew who she was but of course she did not know YUMMRAJ.
She had cooked haleem for the iftar & we absolutely loved it. So we decided to order her food at a later point in time.
So when a friend said there was an occasion & asked for suggestion, we suggested Gul Ali. We did not pay for this & our friend did. So we do not have a copy of the receipt.
We got to know that Gul makes food for 3-4 people, due to the nature of the food being cooked. She however accepts small orders, to tag along with large orders.
The electronic Menu sent by WhatsApp is crisp but does not have any description of the dishes

Food was really good. We will surely reorder.
Detailed description – in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
We started our evening with Galouti kabab.
This was totally different than the commercial version – like at tunday, kitchen of awadh, dum pukht, Oudh etc. The kabab was harder than the paste like kababs that I mentioned in restaurants mentioned above . However the flavours were exactly the same. The taste was fabulous & overall it was really enjoyable. We realized that we were having a home made galouti kabab for the first time. Rate it 4.75/5
Mutton qorma – the gravy was just mind blowing good. Better than the best I have or as good. Comparisons – with all the restaurants mentioned above & also with the rampuri & purani dilli qorma by Osama Jalali.
The flavours of spices were just too good. The gravy was smooth. The meat pieces were very good too. Rate the gravy 4.95/5. Rate the meat pieces 4.25/5. Overall rating of the dish averages out to 4.6/5
Rice zarda had become cold by the time we ate. When it came it was warm but we could not eat it that time. The rice has become hard & was not enjoyable. We microwaved it but nothing bettered. The dish was too dry.
Maybe this would have been much better if we were to eat at her home, immediate after being cooked.
Rate the Texture 1/5
The Taste was good. Rate it 3/5
Flavours were very good. Rate the flavour 4/5
Overall rating of this dish averages out to 2.7/5
Overall rating of food that we had, averages out to 4/5. Just the savoury averages to 4.7/5
Will look forward to reorder.
