Where to eat Keema Meat Curry & Rice in Delhi? – Gullu Meat Waala

Meat Curry with Rice
First time heard about Gullu meat when they had opened shop in Neta Ji Subhash Place in Pitam Pura. However the feedback was not so great and was told by my meat eating friends that the name has lost glory and NSP one is mere a bad copy of the original somewhere in North Delhi. Plus there was never feedback exciting enough for me to visit the original one as well.
However all that changed this weekend when a friend told about her father being fan of Gullu’s meat and knowing how much of a meat eater and lover he is, it was difficult for me to curb my excitement.
Landed up at their Malka Ganj outlet which apparently is right next to North Campus of Delhi university. Google maps here would serve you very well, just in case its barely 100-200 meters from Bungalow Road.
The menu looked simple enough – Keema Meat, Keema Kaleji, Chicken Keema, Meat Keema Rice along with Tikka, Tandoori etc. In vegetarian it has Dal Makahni, Mutter Paneer, Raita, Pulao and Mutter Paneer rice. All dishes came in 3 sizes – priced from Rs. 150 to 360.

Abundance
We ordered a medium sized Keema Meat curry which in their menu would be ‘regular’, along with a portion of Keema Meat Rice which come in a single size. In breads ordered a Masala Parantha and couple of Tandoori rotis.
They do not ‘serve’ you at this outlet, its a takeaway joint with no provision to dine, not even a solitary table to stand and eat. I guess its more to do with a booze shop right next door, the guys at Gullu have to stay clean unless they want to invite trouble from authorities.
But that does not mean you cannot park and eat there, infact that is how lot of patrons get their fill – in their cars or on their bikes, just like we decided to roll.
First thing I noticed in my package was abundance of Chutney and Pyaz. Just taking them out one after the other set the mood right and left a great impression.
Coming to the Keema Meat Curry – It was not oily at all with keema being hand grounded which means a chunky meaty gravy. The mutton pieces were well cut, cooked in a way that they were not falling from bone but were still tender & melt in mouth, which is unlike many places that serve fibrous and chewy meat these days. The spices were perfectly balanced and should suit all the palettes. No overpowering or strong flavors – just a light, flavorful infusion.

Roti and Parantha
Same Keema Meat curry was used in rice as well. Rice were perfectly cooked and there was good quantity of gravy seeped till the deeper part of the container.
Masala Parantha that we ordered was surprisingly unique and well made. I was expecting a normal laccha parantha which would have some masala on top, but this one turned out to be different, very different. The parantha was stuffed with some masala that seemed to be mix of various things but dominated by methi. Tasted very nice with the meat curry.

I guess we would all agree that in such meals chutney and pyaz play a very important role, and the quality of these two things from Gullu made an already tasty experience into a superlative one. The chutney was thick and thankfully was not curd based.  The onions were well cut, fresh and crunchy – just what was needed to complete the meal.

It all costed us Rs. 484 which does not seem to be much for the kind of experience that we had.
Surely goes in the list of gems of Delhi. The closest competition would be legendary Ashok meat from Sadar Bazaar while Deena Meat of Gurgaon would be like a poor cousin of this kickass place!

  1. Waah.. maza aa gaya parrkar.

    Was Lucky to have Gullu ka meat at the Rajpur Authority too where he started many years ago.

    I vividly remember going with my father there and in Huge Rush he would get a Plate of mutton and then the Rotis kept coming. Meat was for a price Roti's were not.

    And then Raj pur Road wala Closed down and opened in The place you went abhi.

    During one of my visits to Old Subzi mandi I dropped in here and was not impressed b what they served. probably a bad day for them or for me.

    And then never went back.

    When GMW was opened in Netaji Subhash place… I again went there as Some how the best Combo for me for food is Meat Chawal. But yahaan bhi nirasha hi haath lagi.

    very recently I tried the same combo at Rajdhani Restaurant (Red Dhaba) in Daryaganj and loved it.

    But seems now its again time to Visit Gullu meat Wala at Kamla Nagar.

    The Pyaaz and Chutney indeed look tempting… just the way it should be.

    Thanks for sharing this Gem

    1. I never knew that he started from Raj Pur road, thought this was the original location. And I can totally understand your response to Malka Ganj outlet, you would have eaten the real stuff before it all became a 'package'. And I am sure the modern package would be much different from the old taste..

  2. I have been having AUTHORITY wala meat (thats what we have been calling it since eternity) since my school days..
    The keema mutton is like drug for me..
    I was in bangalore for 6 yrs doing my graduation n d only thing I craved there was this keema mutton..
    Standing under the tree shades keeping all the stuff on the bonet of the car n having this keema mutton with both the rotis n chawal is a food memory that wil stay with me forever..
    The mutton has become a bit chewy for my liking since a long time now, but it does see a few gud days in between here n there..
    The hero for me is always the keema gravy that saves the day..
    P.S. gotta go in d afternoon now…
