According to many astrologers, every zodiac sign has certain eating habits, its own specific way of preparing food and different preferences towards a certain type of food. While many people prefer traditional dishes, some love to experiment with new and exotic cuisine, while others will eat almost anything because they are not picky. Next time you’re deciding what to put on the dinner table, turn to astrological food guide for personalized recipes based on your sign at XII Zodiac near CC2 , Saltlake.

Dilli wali Aloo Tikki –
A mildly spicy deep-fried potato patty topped with whipped curd and chutney. Sounds like one edible description, doesn’t it? This dish is a popular North Indian street food, which you absolutely must binge on when roaming the streets of Delhi. Treat yourself to a freshly prepared gorgeous and piping hot aloo tikki at XII Zodiac.
Tunde Kabab –
This a dish made out of minced meat which is popular in Lucknow. Part of an Awadhi cuisine. It is said to incorporate 160 spices. A century old delicacy .Among all mouth-watering dishes introduced by the Mughal Empire, Galavati Kababi or Tunde Kabab as is it more commonly known, is by far the best. Here we had a very delightful experience of nicely minced and marinated kababs with just right amount of spices. Portions are of appropriate size and not too heavy that way you do not feel bloated after having a piece.
Peshawari Murgh Tikka –
Barbecuing the meat perfectly , cooking it perfectly while retaining the moisture and juiciness intact. Peshawari Chicken Tikka is a great hit.
Gilafi Seekh Kebab –
Gilaf means a cover and the uniquely names Chupa rustom is a chicken seekh, covered with a minced lamb coating. The Lamb coating is studded with finely chopped tomato, coriander, mint and onion and was flavoured just right. I loved the combination of chicken with lamb and the surprise factor was pleasing with awesome presentation.
Gosht Biryani –
Gosht Dum Biryani is a popular Mughlai recipe. This main dish recipe is made using minced lamb and rice. Don’t miss out this rich in flavor biryani. Raw meat slow-cooked with the rice have produced a succulent, fragrant, layered delight.
Murg Bharta –
A slight different from regular bharta we have in Punjabi Dhaba or North Indian restaurants. Much more thick gravy which was hardly could be differentiated from chicken pieces. A spicy minced chicken dish served with Naans.
A delicious Punjabi style Milk and Rice based creamy desert. It had a thick creamy texture yet so soft served in clay containers. The saffron and cardamom powder was enhauncing its rich flavour and aroma. Garnishing of Sliced Pistachio and whole roasted Kaju was giving this chilled dessert a real tempting look.
Beetroot Halwa –
Its rich red color was definitely very refreshing with garnishing of Sliced Pistachio and almond along with Kiwi fruit in top. Nevertheless a delicious Indian dessert.
The pride and joy of Punjabi cuisine – the mighty lassi, is probably one of the most loved beverages during the sweltering Indian summer. The Lassi here was so smooth and creamy, served in traditional earthen pots called matkas topped with optional sliced almonds or cardamom. It had miraculous powers that can cool you instantly.
