Jalsa Gold – India’s First Gold Themed Restaurant

“Nothing brings people together like good food” but Jalsa Gold is one step ahead by setting the ambiance right! The first Gold themed restaurant in India and happy to say it is in Namma Bengaluru! I was mesmerized just by the sight of it. Lunch like a king, feel like a king and live like a king while you’re at Jalsa gold. Glasses to Cutlery, everything is 24K Gold plated! Not to forget, even the smallest details are taken care of 🙂
Jalsa Gold (16)-2

Jalsa Gold is a North Indian restaurant with few continental options. A couple of days back, I was here with few of my friends for lunch and this is how it went;

As we sat down, we were welcomed with cucumber-mint & watermelon drink. Just the refreshment I was looking forward too after riding through Bengaluru’s traffic! Their buffet spread is huge and not to forget the interesting Ă€ la carte menu. I’m a light eater myself unless there’s biryani in the menu.

I haven’t been a fan of bitter gourd until I savored Karela Salad at Jalsa Gold! The preparation doesn’t even make you realize it’s made from bitter-gourd! A shout-out to Bhatti Ka Phool and Kajun Fries for making me think veg appetizers can also be interesting!
Jalsa Gold (2)-2

On the non-veg side, I loved Murgh Kasturi Kebab and Fish Amritsary. I happened to go for another serving for Fish Amritsary – crispy on the outside, and soft well cooked on the inside. Not to forget the Chicken Pizza, super thin crust with a layer of cheese and chicken tikka.
Jalsa Gold (5)-2

For the main course, I choose Butter Naan along with Railway Mutton Curry & Mangalore Fish Curry. Railway Mutton Curry is one of the best mutton preparations I’ve had in a long time. Loved everything about it!

As I said before, I have a special corner for Chicken Biryani and when they got in Biryani – there was nothing else I needed! Perfectly cooked with long grain rice, just the way I love it!
Jalsa Gold (11)-2

I was pretty stuffed by then, but couldn’t resist myself from having Rasgulla and Gulab Jamoon with Ice Cream. They also have continental desserts.
Jalsa Gold (13)-2

The service is quick and staff doesn’t rush food onto the plate like elsewhere. While there are many buffet options, I recommend you try Jalsa Gold once for a complete dining experience altogether.

Ps: Perfect place to dine with your loved ones 🙂

Cost: â‚ą1400 for two (without alcohol). ~ â‚ą2000 for two (with alcohol).

Experience 7 course meal at SAMAROH!

‘Samaroh’ being a pure vegetarian restaurant, serves authentic north Indian cuisine. Food is served in specially designed brass (Kansa) dishes, which adds up on to the nutritional value of it. Pink and yellow themed interiors with bright lights, fancy hanging lamps, royal touch on the walls, comfortable pink-yellow wooden fabric sofas, make up the ambiance of Samaroh.

The seven-course meal kick-started with Moti Choor Ladoo. This will be our all time favorite recipe. Every spoon of Moti Choor was excellent in terms of sweetness.

Happiness is a tray full of wafers. Yes, up next was a tray filled with yummy wafers. Not to forget the accompaniments such as salad, pickle, Tamarind chutney, and Chili-Pudina chutney. The happy helpers’ refilled and refilled the tray, we just kept munching on them.

Tamatari Shorba, soup made of tomatoes, was over-tangy and barely had any flavors. It was definitely on a disappointing note, but the relishing flavors of Aam Panna made it up!

Tongue tickling Sev Batata Puri and Pani Puri were simply great. A four-part platter with Sandwich Dhokla, Tandoori Apple, Kathi Roll and Peeli Sarson Ka Paneer Tikka were other appetizers on the menu. We enjoyed feasting on these starters.

After the quick bites, it was time for the Rich Thali, the big picture. The gravy section had Dal Makhani, Paneer Tikka Masala, Videshi Sabzi Desi Tadka, Samaroh Kofta, Channa Palak Sarson, Dal Pakwan and Palak Raitha. Under the Roti section, we got to try various rotis’ like Makki ki Roti, Phulka, and Tandoor Roti. Not to forget the tasty and filling Tawa Pulao with raitha, Curd Rice, and Steamed Rice.

All gravies were distinctive in terms of taste, color and texture. Tender and soft Cottage cheese cubes made in-house added on to the quality of the food.

No meal is complete without desserts, and Samaroh had Kesar Pista Shrikand, Rabdi Malpua, Kulfi, Akhrot Halwa and Indian Pan. Being a lover of sweets, I enjoyed every bite of it.

A perfect place to spend some time with family. Overall, we had a wonderful experience of Veg Indian cuisine. Thank you, Little App and team Samaroh  for having us! This is one of the best places for North Indian Thali any day.

Note: Jain food is also served on request.

Cost: 1,200 for two people (approx.)

Experience the Royal Cuisine of Rajasthan at FAIRFIELD.

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.

Chef Bhuralal Prajapathi is the man behind this festival, who flew from Pune to put up this fantastic show. He spoke about the dishes through the course of the meal.

The ambiance has vibrant shades, decorated with umbrellas, colorful Holi , Matkas, wall hangings and tiny toys. A Potter at the entrance who makes Matkas added up to the lively atmosphere.

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.

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.

Lal Maas, something straight out from meat heaven! Tender meat cooked perfectly with spices, exude great flavors.
Fairfield (15)

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.

There’s also a live chaat counter which has many Rajasthani chaats to savor from!

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 🙂

Zzungry

Zzungry is a new ‘delivery only’ startup with a great concept of catering Royal Indian Cuisine. The food which was only served at five-star hotels & palaces is now being delivered to your doorstep at an affordable price. They’ve a main kitchen at HSR layout and a processing outlet in Indiranagar. They’ve experimented with royal dishes from all over the country and is brought under a single menu. The menu changes every week and all prices are inclusive of taxes, so what you see is what you pay!

Tandoori Malai Broccoli – A great dish to start off a royal meal! It is cooked in creamy malai mixed with few spices, and light fried in tandoori. The floret of broccoli is crunchy, packs spices and malai adds a cheesy texture to it.

Malai Paneer – Fresh paneer cooked with malai, cheese and ground cardamom. To make it tastier, it is topped with partial cheese dipped onion. The softness of paneer is carried by the creaminess of malai and cheese. A must try if you are a paneer lover!

Makhmali Murg Seekh – Finely chopped chicken mixed with herbs and spices, put on skewers and cooked in tandoor. After it’s cooked, the central space is filled with cheese which just melts once you eat it.

Murg Sholay Kebab – A boneless chicken leg piece marinated in special cream, cooked in tandoor with Indian spices for perfect taste. Chicken is tender, filled with flavours and spicy to eat. The dish is topped with finely chopped coriander that enlightens the aroma.

Lamb Kebab Gorkhar – This dish is similar to Makhmali Murg Seekh, except for it’s made up of lamb and doesn’t have a cheese filling. The dish is said to be originated from Gorkha, a tribe of Nepal. Mince lamb, combined with spices and herbs, cooked in tandoor. The dish goes great with green chutney.

Nachini(Ragi) Bhutta Paratha – You got to try this even if you don’t like ragi. Ragi paratha stuffed with a mixture of potato & corn and cooked to perfect softness. A dish which can be consumed without any gravies but tastes great with all gravies they serve.

Flavoured Phulka – The ideal accompaniment to any main course is phulka and try it with all gravies for a royal experience. Phulka is of two varieties, combined with the tangy kick of tomato and spinach.

Ajwaini Hing Paratha – The paratha made up of whole wheat flour and a hint of Hing. It is soft & layered and goes well with all gravies they serve.

Dum Murg Nizami – Names just keep getting crazier. This is certainly one of my favs! Chicken leg cooked in spices, onions and cashew. The gravy has a lot of Hyderabadi flavours. It goes great with phulkas.

Murg Burrani – A garlic flavoured chicken leg piece marinated with spices and cooked in tandoor.

Mutton Kolhapuri – Kolhapuri mutton is one of the few mutton dishes that I like. The meat is perfectly cooked with onions, garlic gravy, a few poppy seeds and coconut. This curry fills you up easily and goes well with all bread. It accompanies Shimla Pulao even better!

Veg Sabnam Curry – Cubes of cottage cheese, baby corn, mushrooms and corn cooked in tomato onion gravy which gives it a soft and crunchy texture.

zun (15)

Kofta E Gulmarg – Stuffed cottage cheese balls mixed with Kashmiri apple and dry fruits dipped in flavorful gravy, which was a delicacy during royals of Kashmir. It gives you a hint of both sweetness and spice.

Veg Shimla Pulao – Mild flavoured basmati rice cooked with bell peppers and garam masala. It tastes good with Mutton Kolhapuri/Veg Sabnam Curry.
