The Rajhasthani Food as we all know is more inspired from life’s of nomads who used to carry preserved(last longer) food during their travel journey. Here at the “Rajhasthani Food Fest” this cuisine has been reincarnated with some authentic and lip-smacking dishes. All thanks to the Brother duo of Chef Bhuralal & Chef Pannalal for such wide display of this authentic cuisine. From the renowned Dal Baati to sumptuous Ghevar the fest is presenting an array of Rajhasthani food. The menu changes on a daily basis with some dishes like Dal Baati will be displayed in the everyday’s buffet.

The Starters..

  • Mirch Pakoda

The mirch pakoda had a thick batter coating form the outside, the spicyness of the chillies was just apt and went smoothly with the freshly served mint chutney.

  • Dahi ke Kebab

Delight for a curd lover this Rajhasthani starter was super soft and used hung curd, paneer and bread crumbs in the making.

  • Chatpata Paneer

Tender pieces of mix grated cheese made marinated with coriander, pepper powder, green chilly, onion & ginger. A melt in the mouth with a succulent feel in every bite.

  • Jasandi Machi

The only seafood starter on the list. This one was again a melt in the mouth from the very first bite. Being tender the fish is shallow fried with some Rajhasthani spices & has a thin yet delicious coating over it.

  • Laal Maas

The star of the evening was the Laal Maas which had a perfect chewy consistency with a thick juicy gravy covered over it. Must for a mutton lover.

  • Moong Dal Pakoda

The Moong Dal Pakoda is a live counter specialty at the food fest. The small pakodas made with mashed moong dal were topped with Indian chutneys(mint and garlic chilly). The additional tamarind chutney gave the dish a tangy-sweet combo.

The Mains…

The mains had an array of vegetarian as well as non-veg delicacies. My favorite from them were the Ker Sangri which i thoroughly enjoyed with some kulchas. Other Lazeez dishes form the menu were the Panchmel Sabzi, Papad Paneer Ki Sabzi & Gatte Ki Sabzi.

The Dal Baati needs a special mention as the Baati’s were not made in tandoor and still carried the authentic taste. The Baatis had been partially broken, soaked in desi ghee & were ready to be served with the Dal.

The Saffed Murgh & Laal Maas were the two non-veg mains for the day. The Saffed Murg was the chicken cooked in gravy based of poppy seeds, cashew nuts & yogurt, had a strong flavor of clove as seen in Rajhasthani dishes which majorly use this Indian spice.

The Laal Maas is a traditional Rajhasthani recipe which has thick gravy consistency cooked thoroughly to tenderize the meat.

The Desserts…

  • Live Jalebi Counter

The live counter at the dessert section gave this dinner a royal touch. I saw few foreigner guest equally enjoying this Indian sweet with some Rabdi & sharing their experience with the chefs too.

The next things which i tried were the Ghevar & the Moong Badam Halwa. Heavy use of butter and Dal is what went in the making of the authentic halwa.

The Rajhasthani Food Festival is on from 17th July-27th July, priced at Rs 1050 plus taxes & held at dinner only.

At last a big shoutout to Miss Arundhati & team Courtyard by Marriott, Hinjewadi for hosting us.
