With the Make In India week beginning at the MMRDA grounds, BKC Mumbai, the Sofitel hotel at a stone’s throw from the venue is leaving no stone unturned to showcase India and its culinary diversity at its restaurants Tuskers and Pondicherry café.
Tuskers, Mumbai’s only vegetarian restaurant in a five star hotel is hosting the Mewar food festival from 10-21st February 2016. The head chef of the place Maharaj Jankidas Vaishnav who hails from Mewar grabbed this opportunity with both hands laid out an array of Mewari specialties. Our favourites from the elaborate menu were the Shakarkandi tikki, Paneer Kalmi, ker sangri ki subzi, Bharwan bhindi and their Bharwan bati. In the dinner session the guests are sure to experience the magic of Mewar come alive with a Rajasthani bangle maker, traditional puppet shows and dance performances.
For those who want to go try more from India, Pondicherry café their all day diner is the place to be. The café has planned a special menu for the week with a different regional cuisine every day from 13th -19th February, Punjabi, Kerala and Karnataka, Maharashtrian, Hyderabadi, Goan and will end with Gujarati on the 19th. We are certain the ‘Make In India’ Week will see success and on the culinary front I hope the world will look beyond ‘Chicken tikka, curry and naan bread’ when it comes to Indian cuisine and Indians would beyond North-Indian and South Indian!
