One of the things that excite us about Fairfield by Marriott is their food festivals! It’s celebrating “Padharo Maro Des”, a Marwari Food Festival covering all the popular dishes and desserts of Rajasthan.
Rajasthan being the largest state in India, is known for its traditions, majestic forts, royal sense of clothing and the Thar. It is no less when it comes to food. Rajasthani cuisine has an array of delightful recipes which is a blend of spices and sweet. Ghee, Besan, Bhajra, Wheat, Milk, and spices are few of the main ingredients.
The dinner was arranged on the ground with lay back cushions, leaf spread on the miniature silver table, decorated with rose petals. The staff in the traditional attire and Marwari songs in the background made it more appealing.
On the menu,
Gulabi Sherbet, an appetizer. Though the drink was light, yet strong of rose essence. Mirchi Bhajiya, spicy green chilli’s filled with aloo, was perfectly fried and had the right amount of crispness. It was served with Lasoon Chutney.
Dal Baati Churma is something we’d love to eat over and over! Fresh Baati’s deep fried in ghee, mixed with dal and topped with Churma which gave spice-sweet hints!
Bajre ki Khichdi is one of those dishes prepared with least number ingredients but has great flavors. A divine dish by itself 🙂 Gatte ka Pulao got us thinking if it was sausages but it’s besan blent with rice! Sangri ke Sabji is made up of two special types of beans which are available only in Rajasthan. It went well with the pulao and khichdi.
Malai Ghevar is a dessert where only a handful of people pull it off. Aromas of ghee and Rabdi leaves anyone speechless! Jalebi with Rabdi, Mini and sugary, topped with Rabdi left us mouthwatering. MoongDal Halwa one of the richest dessert. A person with the sweet tooth would love it for sure.
Overall we had a royal experience at Kava, Fairfield by Marriott. Scrumptious food, good hospitality, and innovative decor sums up the food festival. Three cheers to the entire team and to the happy helpers who served us 🙂
