The Vegetarian Bhukkad in Baroda #3 : The FOOD!
delightful experience in New Delhi, and the fact that I was travelling solo, made
my mum promise her that I’ll be having all my meals at the Hotel.
I’ll just talk about all the food that I have had; not to forget the fat that
my last dinner there was made very special by the team at Four Points By
Sheraton when the specials card on the dinner table read: “Today’s Special for
Ms. Sucheta Thakur!” How cool is that!
background research well, for I had a basket of my ultimate favourite food that
followed me to my room immediately after check in! A zillion brownie Points
just for this!
part of the on going Mango Mania Festival was the Paneer Ambi Tikka! Fresh
cottage cheese marinated in Dried Mango Powder and a Raw Mango Paste and then roasted
off to perfection in a Tandoor, the Paneer Ambi Tikka turned out to be my most
memorable dishes from my stay. I even ended up requesting the chef to teach me
how to make it and he took me into the kitchen and happily obliged!
who hates bhindi sees bhindi on the table! That is exactly what my situation
was, but the very thought of a combination of mango and bhindi had me wondering
and I knew I would not be able to sleep peacefully that night without trying this
some time for me to start liking it and as much as I enjoyed it at that point
of time, unlike the Paneer Ambi Tikka, it really wasn’t something I wanted to
go back to the next day!
Mangoes and Mango powder added to it, this was another dish that I loved and
learnt before getting back home!
evening knowing what I like and what I don’t and the kind of flavours I enjoy,
I woke up to two room service executives at my door with massive trays of
breakfast for me to enjoy! From Aloo ke Parathe to Waffles with Chocolate Sauce
and Whipped Cream and Maple Syrup to My favourite Breakfast Cereal to Toast,
Butter and Hot Chocolate!
My only reaction at seeing this was, Life is Good!
mention to chef about my love hate relationship with IndoChinese food, he
decided to make the hate turn in to love!
was nothing like what I have ever had before! Spicy, but with a hint of
sweetness but still so good.
chilli paneer that’s cooked in a soya sauce base, this one was cooked in
schezwan sauce and was oh so good! Why don’t we get any of this in Bombay, eh!
potato wedges? They are delicious and herbed and everything perfect! Add some spicy
mango salsa to it and you are on the way to potato heaven!
cooked to perfection would be the best way to describe these two dishes!
rendition of a tandoori aloo definitely was a first for me and was something
that I really did not enjoy much! Going back for seconds wasn’t an option
because the dish was a little too spicy for my liking!
Bhara Kebabs but these were just perfect! Not too creamy and with just the
right amount of spinach, this was YUM!
the subs miloni basically mixed vegetables cooked in a spinach based curry. Loved
from the first bite, this dish is something that is definitely going to stay
with me for a very long time!
Assorted Rotis also were part of the meals but the perfect ending to my stay
had to be the jalabi and masala doodh that I relished upon before calling it a
day! Masala Doodh, so good, that it took me right back to Nathdwaara and the addition
of jalebi to it was swarg!
