It was not a regular day in the kitchen for Delhi-based food enthusiast and chef, Saransh Goila! Known for his popular Koyla Goila chicken, the chef not only got to cook his signature recipe for famous Aussie cricketer, Adam Gilchrist but also had the cricketer add his touch to the dish. And knowing that Butter Chicken is Adam’s favourite Indian dish just topped it all!
While his moves behind the stumps are famous around the world, only a few know that Gilly loves his food hot and spicy. The cook took place on 17th August at The Hive in Khar with a lot of conversation, pictures and great food.
On this amazing experience, Goila Chicken specialist, Saransh Goila said, “Being a cricket fan, I can’t believe I have actually come to a day where I get to serve Gilchrist something that I cook. It’s a feeling that is unmatched. At Goila’s we smoke our butter chicken with coal and today Gilly smoked the butter chicken and he did it as easily as he hits sixes in the stadium”
Off the pitch, Adam has not only learnt a little bit of Hindi but also about Indian food. In this Aussie accent, the excited Adam Gilchrist said, “Well, there are a lot of dishes that I love from India, but Butter Chicken is my favourite. I was looking forward to learn the secret technique from Saransh. It was a great experience to learn the smoked variety from the man himself.”
