United Flavours of India - 40 Day Journey at the Lalit Ashok Bangalore

We craved for Punjabi Food with the non vegetarian dishes and rotiyaan, the 24/7 multi cuisine restaurant at the Lalit Ashok made our bellies delight.

L-R- Chef K.P Singh, Bhuni Hui Chaatein Kheema de Naal,Meat Waale Chaawal,Kheeme Koyal ke Masala

  Chef K.P Singh brings to you robust and rich flavors from Punjab all present at the buffet for the next 40 days. I had a long chat with Chef K.P Singh and learnt that he had the opportunity to spend a good one month in the villages of Amritsar to learn the cuisine, to learn the way the Punjabis make their food at home, or at the Dhabas "Food to the Punjabis is important, it is translated as brotherhood, togetherness and happiness", Chef KP recalls in his expedition at Punjab. Keeping that in mind he has wanted to bring forth those experiences and tastes for the event at the Lalit Ashok all this month.
I asked Chef for his recommended options to try in the buffet, so for starters I tried the Stuffed Gajjar Ka Parathas with Kheeme Koyal ke Masala, a whole quail cooked in Mutton Kheeme along with some spices,rendered down in tomato and onions based gravy cooked over a prolonged period for the burst of flavors. Next up we tried the Bhuni Hui Chaatein Kheema de Naal, which are mutton chops cooked in a spicy and robust masala, with the tender meat simply coming off the bone.

Punjabi Kadhi Pakoda
The Meat Waale Chaawal is also subtle and flavorful with the soft Punjabi Kadhi Pakodas which I strongly reccommend. One cannot miss a meal with the ubiquitous Sarson Ka Saag and Roti with some Gurr and Safed Makhan and of course the Dal Makhani, Paneer Wale Chole with Puri. To end the lunch I tried the Urad dal ka Halwa and  Malpua soaked in sugar syrup which are heavenly.

Ural Dal di Pinni
By the end of the whole ordeal I was overloaded, but happy! All the reason to go back and try some more of the upcoming culinary dishes from the Bundelkhand Jugalbandi which is the Khajuraho Cusine ( 21st to 30 Oct ) and the Shaahi Mewad the Rajasthani Cuisine (11th Oct to 20th Oct). All this only at the Lalit Ashok till the 30th of Oct at the 24/7 Restaurant.
