Andamental, Various Outlets Across Mumbai
Andamental; this home delivery brand opened their doors a couple of months ago and as the name suggests, their menu was all about eggs cooked in various ways.
A lot of my friends fell in love with the food they offered and then, suddenly, Andamental was a hot topic of discussion across WhatsApp groups and when foodie friends got together.
Well, Andamental finally introduced a vegetarian menu to their already existing, large variety of eggs and I finally decided to try this place when a few guests came over for dinner. After all, too many evenings were spent hearing about it!
What we had:
Broccoli Achari Tikka (INR 210++): The largest disappointment of our meal was this and we honestly were worried about how the entire meal would shape up. Super soft broccoli whose marinate was strong on mustard; this was bitter beyond expectations and was rendered in edible!
Paneer Lababdar Roll (INR 160++): What a relief compared to the broccoli; this was a generous portion of paneer lababdar wrapped inside a roomali roti. Creamy, soft paneer and not very spicy, as delicious as the stuffing was, the roti remained the highlight of the dish. Unlike the usual roomali roti’s that are made of maida, this was a combination of wheat flour and maida and you know what, they had not gone dry and chewy on delivery!
Masala Taka Tak (INR 180 ++): Another disappointment, this apparently was supposed to be finely chopped vegetables in a vegetable gravy, but they gravy was as god as not there. In terms of flavours and spice combinations, this one was a total confusion and something that didn’t make us want to go back for a second bite.
Dhaba Style Chole Masala (INR 195++): YUM! That’s all I can say, Paired with a generously stuffed masala kulcha, this one is true blue heaven for lovers of Punjabi food. Not very spicy, not very sweet and kabuli channa that’s just perfectly cooked.
Dal Tadkewali (INR 150++): Okay, so dal tadkewali; unlike the usual recipe, this one was a combination of moong dal and tur dal! And what delicious dal I tell you! Not too oily and not too garlic-y, I fell in love with this and how! I haven’t had such a good Dal Tadkewali in a very long time! Am sure I must have ended up eating half the portion of the dal itself, leaving the others to enjoy the rest.
Our meal also had The VeggieMental Biryani (INR 180++), a couple of Masala Kulchas (INR 70++) and Tandoori Rotis (INR 35++). The Kulcha was yum and the biryani was decent!
Overall a great meal and I can’t wait to dig into the dal and paneer lababdar wrap, again!
