The Rajasthani Food festival menu has been painstakingly created by Chef Hanuman & his team to provide a balance so that the preference of vegetarian as well as non vegetarian food enthusiasts is maintained. The vegetarian starters include Moong Dal Kebab , Sangri Ke Kabab and Paneer ke Sooley among others where as the menu for non-vegetarian starters includes Rai Ki Macchi , Charkha Murgh and Maas KeSooley et al. The main course of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian menu is a big draw. From Macchi Ramgadi , Murgh ki Mokal to Laal Maas and Safed Maas, everything has been included in the non vegetarian menu. The vegetarian main course has attractions like- Paneer Methi Dana, Chakkika Saag , Ker Sangri Achari , Tripolia Subzi & more . Apart from this, one can enjoy Rajasthani deserts – Churma, Misri Mawa, Rajbhog, Malai Ghev and Malpua. The breads are not the usual ones and these include Bejadki roti & Methi ki roti. Then the famous dishes of Rajasthan like Bati Dal, Moong MogarJaipuri and Gatta Pulao are also there in the menu.
While talking to the media, Mr. Hanuman Pratap Singh said,” The Hotel serves as an ideal place to introduce Rajasthani cuisine to people of tricity. I will not only be guiding the team in the kitchen during the festival but will also make people aware about the roots of Rajasthani food which has greatly been influenced by the wars & large expanses of barren regions. But despite all this, the love which people from all over the World have for Rajasthani food, proves the unmatched quality of its taste.”
Mr. Vivek Khanna, General Manager WelcomHotel Bella Vista said, “Under our Hotel’s plan we want to bring authentic cuisines from across India for the scrumptious taste of tricity food lovers. We recently held a Kashmiri Food Festival and after this Rajasthani Food Festival we will be putting up an Exotic Sizzler Extravaganza, a Gelato Festival & a Wine Festival. “
The classic ambience and premium dining options available in the hotel prove to be the best reasons for holding a unique event like this.
Mr. Duddi Reny Manohar, Executive Chef, WelcomHotel Bella Vista said, “Rajasthani dishes portray the rich food culture as well as heritage of the Royal state and the festival will provide a great opportunity to tricity residents to get a taste of original Rajasthani food cooked in a traditional way.”
