Tuck into Khasi and Malwa specialties at these pop-up lunches
This Sunday, tuck into two unique pop-up lunches, where you can either savour dishes like Gulab Ki Kheer, a dessert made from rose petals or try Tungtap, a fermented fish chutney, among other fare
From Malwa’s kitchens
FROM slow-cooked mutton meatballs to a dessert made from rose petals, indulge in some royal tastes at home-chef Anuradha Joshi Medhora’s food pop-up. Hailing from Indore, she will be dishing out some unique recipes from the Malwa region in Madhya Pradesh.
Pyaaz Ka Pulav with Kofta Narma Dil and Banjari Dal
The menu includes Shahi Dahi Barra (lentil dumplings in thick, sweetened yoghurt), Kofta Narma Dil (soft and succulent mutton meatballs slow-cooked in an aromatic gravy), Do Peeaza Narangi Ka Soola (smoked and beaten mutton cooked with oranges) and Mawa Mutter (peas curry in khoya gravy, a quintessential MP dish). End the meal on a sweet note with Gulab Ki Kheer, cooked using fresh rose petals.
Hit the Khasi trail
Did you know that some of the most delicious fare in Meghalaya isn’t found in fancy restaurants but at tiny Jadoh stalls? Learn about Khasi culture and its cuisine at home-chef Rebecca Ranee’s pop-up, where she will be serving authentic dishes from this North Eastern state.
