The mainstreet..Residency towers

I had heard about a little on this restaurant so yesterday we gave it a try.we tried lunch buffet on Sunday


Its location is perfect as it is on Thyagraya road..bustling market and as soon as we entered we said..wow...ambiance is very good, they have a british theme.so it is decorated in Victorian style.

In the drinks they..had fruit juice and butter milk.......both Ok

The soups..there were veg and non veg both, we had tomato cum vegetable soup..again just ok.

Starters...fried,idli and somne gobhi manchuria and pakora..all were soaked in oil and I didnt like at all.
There were Panipuri and papdi chaat also,but no good.

Now the main menu...in the salad as usual there were 7-8 varieties including pasta and lobia etc, then bread varieties with cheese.
Side dishes..sambhar,daal,paneer makhanwala,fried potato and few regional varieties.
Rice.plain steamed,lemon rice and curdrice and dahi vada
In the bread section, there was nanof different variety.
North Indian preparations were just not good , like we dont like dahi vada without tamarind chutney.

Desserts..This section was really good, yummy and lots of variety..all types of cakes,pastries mousse, strudel, fresh fruits, 3-4 typews of icecream,kheer,gulabjamun,sugar free sweets and other Indian sweets.

Entertainment..there was live crooner and he was good.

 Service wasnt very good as it was too crowded....they need to improve their main section instead of having so many varieties of salad and all.

All this came at the price of Rs. 650/ person inclusive of taxes.
If one wants to just enjoy the ambiance its a good place,but not for relishing food.

NAMKEEN DALIA

This is a very healthy breakfast for me and I like it also, almost no oil is used and it has lots of vegetables. and not much cooking even.
Ingredients:-----
1cup broken wheat
250 gm cabbage..julienned
1small capsicum..julienned
1 carrot grated
1 tsp. oil 1tsp. mustard seeds.
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp salt or as you like it
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp. roasted peanuts.
Green chilli(optional)
coriander leaves..finely chopped for garnishing.
Dry roast the broken wheat, till it is golden.
In a pan put oil, and when it is hot add mustard seeds.
When they start spluttering add all the vegetables.
saute them for 5-8 minutes, till they get shiny or loose water.
Keep them aside.
Now cook the broken wheat with 2 cup water, turmeric and salt, slow the fire and cook till all the water is absorbed.
Mix the vegetables in this.
Now while serving spread some peanuts and then sprinkle lemon. TIPS:.....even you can roast the wheat in microwave also, you will have to stir it once or twice. Some people add tomatoes also, but I dontbecau…

URAD DAL kHICHDI

This was the staple diet in winters in my childhood. Actually we started making this only from GangaDusshehra and stopped it from Shivraatri. My mind found this logic in this ritual..its considered hot...gives heat, so once the winter is gone..its not good to eat ..may be.
Ingredients: 1cup Uradcchilka (black urad) 1 and half cup rice. 4 cup water. 1tsp. turmeric 1+1/2 tsp. salt or to taste. green chutney, curd papad Radish..cut into long pieces and sprinkle salt and lemon juice on them. Desi ghee Put daal, rice, water, turmeric and salt together in a cooker and put it on the gas. After one whistle slow the the fire. keep it for 3 minutes and switch off. let it cool for 5 minutes. Now open it , and serve it hot with dollops of ghee and accompaniments. I love it with radish and curd. My dad always used to like it after a little shallow frying...for this take a fry pan, put some ghee and add khichdi, and shallow fry it, till its a little crisp. Its like Indian fast food...cooks in a jiffy and healthy to…

Roast And Grill..Green Park vada palani

I bought the groupon coupon for this and found that this was my best deal.The restaurant is on the roof top with a pool..and ambiance is very good....infact I loved sitting poolside..looking over the lighted Forum Mall...much better than sitting inside.

Then the service was excellent, they were polite and very attentive to our needs, before we finished even one started, another came on the table. In the mocktails we ordered kiwi cooler and it was perfect.Then in the starters they had corn cob,paneer tikka,onion capsicam with herbs , potato with cream, soya patties etc, all grilled or roasted. He asked us whether we wanted any repeat of the starters, but it wasnt possible for us, we were full..so much that we picked a little from the main food.There we had 4.5 vegetables and daal, veg, pulao, curd rice, and naan..baiagan ka  salan, shahi paneer and daal were just yummy..Only thing I miss in chennai is that rarely they have dahi bhalla in menu..but here they compensated with starters.I…
