Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

The Baishakhi Meal at J W Marriott, Bangalore

Baishaki spells home for me, though I am an out and out Delhi girl and not the pure blood punjabi but festivals always tend to bring out your roots. Unfortunately in Bangalore nothing happens for Baishakhi and when J W Marriott, Bangalore called me saying they are having a Baishakhi special with Chef Jolly, I wad delighted to accept the invitation. The terrace of  J W Marriott was done up like a typical Punjabi village and there were stalls of lassi, desserts, tandoor, tawa chaat and more.

With chef Jolly enthusiastically explaining and taking us through each of the elements he had put together, I truly felt that I have transported myself back to Punjab. To the lush fields of sarsoon, to the tall glasses of lassi, to the fish tikka and ghar ka kukkad, to the slowly simmering milk, the fresh and hot jalebi, to the tandoori kabab both chicken and mutton, to the tikki and kheema, to the taste of nostalgia in roofahza… It truly was a celebration of Punjab day that. Here is a picture tour for you (which being night pictures, don’t do 100% justice to the food)

The mango lassi being made, this took me back in time when my granny used to make the lassi with meva and jaggery. Sinful but yumm

Chicken Pulao (punjabis don't make biryani, we make pulao), dal makhani, fish curry all of them were fab. The fish curry was a special surprise since it is so uncommon to see one in Punjab menu
