Bursting with flavour

We kicked off with Dahi Gujia – sweet yellow lentil dumplings stuffed with yogurt and chutney topped with colourful edible flowers – followed by Achari Murgh Tikka Kathi Roll – a spicy tandoori-grilled chicken wrap bursting with flavour.

The main course was a smorgasbord of dishes presented in classic Tiffin Boxes and included delights like Tawa Masala Fish, Murgh Madras, Pahadi Gosht for meat lovers; and vegetarian options like Tawa Baigan Methi Masala, Aloo Permal Subzi, Pahadi Paneer showcasing diverse flavors from North India.

Unique alcohol pairings added sophistication to our meal: Tanqueray Rangpur Lime Gin with Premium Indian Tonic and Heggies Vineyard Estate Chardonnay complementing the tandoori chicken perfectly. For those seeking bold flavors, Tenuta di Sesta Brunello Di Montalcino Sangiovese paired beautifully with spiced dishes.

We capped off this culinary adventure with a sweet finale featuring Makai Halwa, a sweet-corn iteration of the semolina-based sweet delight; sweet Gujia dumplings stuffed with coconut and dried fruits; and deep-fried Gur Para coated with jaggery syrup.
