Got an invite for Garhwali food festival at Kava, Fairfield Marriott, Rajaji Nagar, Bangalore. The name sounds very different and new to me, later came to know that it was based on the individual community Garhwali who lives in and around districts of Uttarakhand, India. Much excited for the review, as the cuisine was new to me.
This Garhwali food festival at Kava, Fairfield Marriott, Bangalore happened only for a week from (11th Aug – 20th Aug). The restaurant was well decorated, and two ladies were dressed in Garhwali attire, which gives us the feeling of Uttarakhand. Not only with the ambiance but every time Marriott would bring their authentic regional Chef of the particular region and this time it’s Chef Kripal Adhikari, who came from Uttarakhand for this food festival. Along with him, Head Chef Aniket Das, prepared this delicious feast and all the dishes tastes yum.
Also the most impressing one was the menu was written out in a leaf plate and then the food was served in a thali. Being a non-vegetarian, First Comes the chutney – had 4 different chutneys – Bhang ki chutney (name sounds different and good right? Must to try over there), Bhatt ki chutney, Amla chutney, Batuwe ka raita and Amchuri.
Thali holds – Jakhiya Paneer, Akrot Kebab, Phannu (I have come across this dish through my fellow food bloggers from north but the very first time got to try it, it was awesome – made of mixed lentils), Pahari Rajma, Kafuli (made spinach and fenugreek leaves ) – the color of this dish was more inviting and so it tastes (yum), Chakhor Kebab, Pahari Murgi Tamatar Jhol (curry), Ghanuo Jhol (Lamb Shank), Teetar Biryani, Jinnu ki roti, Pahari Lal Chawal, Mandua (Finger millet) kit Rotti – It was yum, when I tried it with Ghanuo Jhol (must to have), Gahat Ke paratha and Makki ki Rotti.
Coming to Desserts, Kheer (prepared with rice), Coconut Barfi and Bal Mithai (Barfi made of sweetened khoya and coated with sugar balls) – must to try.
The Dinner Buffet is priced at INR 949 + Tax. Wishing everyone a Happy weekend, do not miss the food festival, give a try and enjoy the food festival.
