Zumbura to bring Purab cuisine to Clapham's Old Town

zumburaThis Autumn looks set to bring a bumper crop of new Indian restaurants to London. Hard on the heels of karam Sethi's Gymkhana comes Zumbura, a 50 seat Clapham restaurant focusing on dishes you'd expect to find in the Purab region of North India.

The people behind Zumbura are Aamir Ahmad (pictured), Sean Galligan and David Garrett the co-founders of furniture company Dwell. Opening the restaurant looks set to fulfil a dream by Ahmad who says he wants to "provide the kind of food I ate when I was growing up, but within a restaurant setting.”

Doing that providing is head chef Raju Rawat. Rawat trained at New Delhi's five star hotel The Oberoi before going on to work at Benares, The Cinnamon Club and Bombay Bicycle Club. He then helped develop the Indian Street food company Moolis.

Dishes on Rawat's small plate sharing (natch) menu include Kullia (aromatic lamb and turnip stew), Shami Kebab (velvet soft lamb and lentil patties), Karela (bitter gourd here cooked with lentils) and Ghugni (black chickpeas with a tangy mango and onion dressing).

Zumbura is open now at 36a Old Town, Clapham, London, SW4 0LB
