Now Food Review Time!
Bread Pakora Poha – Syna Heritage Hotel (Khajuraho)
One of the favorite street foods of India, Bread Pakora, is a yummy snack. A hot and tasty pakora made of beaten rice and mixed with mashed potatoes, peanuts, and various masalas. These Bread pakoras use Whole wheat bread, and stuffed with spicy sweet potatoes and Tofu! I enjoyed having the poha too!
Butter Chicken – Safari Regency Rewa
Butter Chicken probably the most preferred Indian chicken dishes popular with all because of its moderate taste and pleasantly delicious gravy. I loved this one. I couldn’t believe that these smells were coming out of my bowl! It was super simple and delicious. Trust me when I say it was finger licking! The spices included garam masala, ginger, garlic, lemon, pepper, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and chili. It’s offered in the moderate curry sauce which included butter.
Fish Steak – Raja’s Cafe Khajuraho
What a tasty way to serve fish. The lemon butter sauce was TOO good! The beautifully delicious sauce is a perfect complement to the spicy fish. The mixture of all of the spices was just divine. An excellent and flavorful dish that you can choose a variety of fish such as flounder, cod, trout, snapper, etc. Great served with fresh steamed veggies and steamed rice. It made a perfect meal and put me in an excellent mood!
Gulab Jamun and Rasgulla – Syna Heritage Hotel
Both Gulab Jamun/Rasgulla are traditional Indian sweet dishs which are very popular and can found anywhere in India. The Gulab Jamun made from khova is deep fried and then soaked in sugar syrup. Rasgulla made from soured milk and mixed with little maida and pressure cooked in some water. Later it is soaked in sugar syrup.
Gulab Jamuns and Rasgullas are far away cousins. Not very far, but distant. Both are juicy dumplings doused in sinfully sweet but delicious treacle; both are popular Indian dessert items.
Poha & Poori – Parsilli Resort
A plate of hot poha or pohe is one of the best breakfasts ever. Poha is a simple amazingly flavorful dish for breakfast or snack. Made with pressed rice, boiled potatoes and plenty of onions sautéed with a little tempering of mustard seeds, turmeric, green chilies, and jeera, finished off with a sprinkling of fresh coriander.
Pooris were crispy, golden deep-fried bread. Pooris are fried wheat bread, very common in Indian cuisine served for breakfast or with other meals. They have perfectly puffed up pooris a real joy to the eyes and taste buds. I loved it.
Poori – Jungle Camp
Aloo Puri, fresh potatoes with gravy and puffed whole wheat bread (puri). It was simple and made a complete meal. Served for a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner. You must surely try stuffed aloo paranthas as well. It is also hard to forget the taste of Aloo puri made with dough prepared by kneading aloo and ajwain together. Lip-smacking for sure!
