Luchi, begun bhaja, kasha mangsho, chingri maacher malai curry, bhapa ilish and a lot more! During the five-day Durga Puja extravaganza, if you are looking for some authentic mouth-watering Bengali delicacies, look no further beyond than Mist – The Park, Delhi.

 

luchi with aloo dum

 

Located in the heart of the city on Sansad Marg, near the Parliament House complex, The Park kick-started from Friday its Bengali food festival, Kolkata’s Adda, that will end on Navami, next Sunday. The buffet offers a wide range of authentic Bengali cuisine and will be available both for lunch and dinner.

The showpiece restaurant Mist with its serene surrounding offers some of the best settings to enjoy the food festival. The ambience at Mist is cool and calm and the outdoor pool heightens the fluidity of the menu. The ever-smiling staff made it an ideal environment for a family lunch.

Executive chef Abhishek Basu is new in the national capital. For him, the Bengali food festival during the Durga Puja was the best way to impress the foodies of the city.

“I am new to the city. And since this is the time for Durga Puja festival, I felt it would be great to have a Bengali food festival. We have tried our best to serve the traditional and old forgotten Bengali fare. We promise to rustle up innovative recipes using age-old ingredients like mango-ginger and kasundi (mustard),” Basu told IANS.

True to Basu’s words, it is the smell of mustard oil, one of the main ingredients in Bengali cuisine, that hits you first when you enter the Mist. It is time to dig in. While the main course is authentic Bengali, the restaurant offers a wide range of Indian and Mediterranean salads. But I won’t be wasting my time.

 

bengali-food-festival

 

I headed off to the fry counter. The aloo bhaja was crisp while the beguni (batter fried aubergines and onions) were juicy, perfect to start my ‘Adda’. Keema ghugni (hand chopped mutton mince with green peas) and kathi rolls, two street food favourites, were the surprise package.

It was then time for the main course, which will be rotation-basis during the festival. I started with stuffed luchi and cholar dal. The cholar dal was sweet and had bits of coconut and raisins, while the luchi was delicately soft. It reminded me of the Ashtami morning breakfast that we generally look forward to after offering the ‘Anjali’. The smell of ghee bhat (rice with butter) was tempting, so was the chicken pulao.

 

Ghee bhaat with Rui Macher Jhol food

 

What followed next were aloo posto (stir fried potatoes with poppy seeds), rui macher kalia, chingri macher malai curry (prawns in coconut milk) and kosha mangsho. It was lip-smacking.

 

Kosha Mangsho with Mughlai Parota

 

My tummy was almost full, but like all food-loving Bengalis, I have a sweet tooth as well. Misthi doi, chanar payesh, chomchom and patishapta (pancake with cocunut filling) — and the plate was overflowing.

 

mishti

 

Chef Basu made sure that I finish it off with noten gurer icecream. It was time for me to leave and the restaurant was overflowing.

M Cafe, the restaurant at Bengaluru Marriott has organized a ‘street food festival – The Streats‘ for the food lovers in Bangalore. The event which started on Aug 19, 2013 will continue till Aug 31st.

 

Bengaluru Marriott food festival

 

When we talk of street food, several things come to mind. On one hand you think of mouth watering gol gappas, bhel puri, dosa, pav bhaji, vada paav and on the other hand we would be worried about the quality of oil and other ingredients used by the hawkers. The idea behind Marriott’s street food fest is to provide the same street food with authentic taste but with the quality and hygienic environment of an international hotel.

 

The Streats – Street Food Festival at Bengaluru Marriott, Whitefield

 

As soon as you enter the hotel premises, you get a warm welcome by the ever courteous Marriott’s staff. We were personally received by the GM Mr. Matthew Cooper, a veteran in the hospitality industry. After a brief introduction, Matthew spoke about Indian street food, New Delhi in particular; giving a vivid explanation of his experiences with the streets of New Delhi. Being a foodie himself, Matthew spoke at length about the various Indian foods he’s loved all these years and how they have tried to bring the same to Marriott as part of this food festival and entertain the taste buds of Bangalore’s foodies.

 

Street Food Festival at Bengaluru Marriott, Whitefield

 

The street food stalls were set up in the open lounge area.

 

chat station

 

The first stall was Gola Counter. The stall had its front area designed to give a touch of the dhaba. The posterior of a truck was nicely painted on the counter with the memorable words ‘Horn – ok’ Please giving you the highway feel. The stall had various colored bottles nicely placed in line with matkas on either side. Ice golas are a hot favorite with kids and adults alike and anybody who has had it in their childhood will remember the good old days licking on a icy cool gola from a street hawker. And when was the last time you had a perfectly healthy ice gola made using mineral water?

The next stall was named Sharma ji ke aloo tikki.

Freshly cooked Aloo tikki mixed with chole was an instant hit among the present crowd and it received very good reviews by then present journalists and bloggers.

The next stall had kathi rolls. Delicious veg and non veg kathi rolls freshly prepared and served hot. The kathi roll stall had a cutout of an auto rickshaw with Bollywood film Heroine poster on it.

Next in line was the Chat Station. It was named Pappu golgappe wala. Chat station served Gol gappe, Bhel puri, Sev Puri and other chaats. The chaats were in huge demand among the guests and the attendant staff had a tough time catching up with the beeline of people waiting for some chaat. One of the hotel staff was actually moving across the hotel lounge on a bicycle with a huge sack carrying ingredients for chaat.

The last counter was Satya Sai dosa center. Real South Indian style Masala Dosa, Uttappam, Mysore Dosa and several other dosas served fresh and hot.

The cuisines were street style but the chef had tweaked the taste a bit and added their own touch to it. Extreme care was taken to ensure the food was not too spicy or unhealthy. The hotel staff was extremely warm and on toes to ensure none of the guests felt unattended.

If you are missing the street food and are afraid to eat outside this monsoon, Marriot Whitefield is the place you should be. This event is a must visit so miss it at your own risk!

For most people the word dosa conjures up vivid  images of wafer thin, crisp and perfectly golden dosas served in South India. We will introduce you to it’s thinner and fairer cousin…

Steam Dosa…

neer dosa or Steam dosa in Bangalore

The Neer Dosa or steam dosa is icy white, extremely thin in texture and appears porous to the eye. This classic Udipi dish on the Mangalorean menu is a hot favourite purely because it is so easy to make. The batter (unlike dosas) does not need to be fermented and neer dosas can be whipped up in a jiffy!

 

Watered Down Crepe…

Neer in Kannada means water, which refers to the watery texture of this dosa batter. 2 cups of raw rice is soaked in equal proportions of water for about 3 hours. It is then ground with a cup of water and (3 tbsp) grated coconut till smooth. Another 2 cups of water is then added to the batter and set aside for an hour.

 

Technique…

Heat a non-stick pan and pour a ladle of the batter, swirl and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads thin. Sprinkle a few drops of oil and cover the dosa with a plate  allowing it to cook in steam. Traditionally the Mangaloreans make it on a thick iron griddle called henchina kallu.

 

Serving Suggestions…

neer dosa recipe

Neer Dosa is served folded like a handkerchief. It goes best with piping hot sambar and chutney (either coconut, coriander or tomato). For die-hard non-vegetarians neer dosa is the perfect accompaniment to spicy mutton, chicken or fish curry. It can also be stuffed with powdered jaggery and coconut to give it a sweet twist.

If your mouth is already watering, follow us on the neer dosa trail: where you can  find the best dosa places in the Garden City of  Bangalore ?

  • Sana-Di-Ge restaurant is tucked away in Goldfinch Hotel, on Crescent Road and ranked as one of the few restaurants serving the best neer dosas in Bangalore. The soft, pliable dosas are complemented with rawa fried Bolanjir (silver fish), kori (chicken) stew or bangude (mackerel). Sana-Di-Ge is almost plush in setting.
  • Maiyas restaurant in Malleswaram rolls out the signature Udipi Neer Dosa with a flourish. Service is quick, and the ambience is far from posh, but clean. The piping hot filter coffee served in silver plated tumblers and makes for a good finale to the neer dosa feast!
  • Another restaurants known for its delicious Mangalorean fare is Pingara Family Restaurant in Koramangala. Far from a “family” restaurant, there’s a dimly lit bar in one corner. Attentive service vies with reasonable pricing and long, hungry queues.
  • Check out the neer dosa served at Swathi restaurant (west of chord road in Rajaji Nagar) . 5 pieces are priced at Rs 70 and it is served with their in-house specialties like chicken kundapura, chicken sukka, tawa fried chicken or seasonal seafood like fried pomfret, anjal or kane.
  • Coconut Grove Grand in Malleshwaram’s Mantri Square serves neer dosa with a choice of mutton curry, chicken gravy, prawn curry, seer fish (approximately Rs. 150) or a veg curry (Rs. 60) swathed in coconut milk.
