DELHI DHABA

This Sunday we were looking for a good north Indian joint on ECR as we like to drive thru that road,but now that road has become a total concrete.such fast development though its a sore to the eyes.I was searching the net, asked few friends and then zeroed on Delhi Dhaba..Its opposite to VGP Beach and there are three restaurants together..one Malgudi,one Delhi dhaba and one for fast food.

We went to Delhi dhaba..it has a retro bollywood ambiance with old heroes pictures everywhere. Bamboo legs of tables are fine but otherwise it looks very old. Outside it was looking good with village look but then the weather was hot and I wanted to sit inside in airconditioning.

The one who took the order looked like an old fat clerks you see in offices..nothing pleasant about him.On the table there was a card telling us that they have two chef special..paneer kabab and vegetable kababs platter..we ordered tomato soup and veg.kabab platter, as we tgought we will order pane


er in main dish.But what he brought was quite big for two and had more paneer than vegetables, they charged also whopping 750/ for that..here i like the places where while taking orders , waiters tell us that its too big for two.Anyway platter was good and we were almost full after that...

So we ordered stuff kulcha and curd...it was ok, not good, not even good pickles.

Rates are reasonable, like most vegetables are in 220/ range..

I missed the mocktails there, they have lassi, etc

I wouldnt say it was bad, but it wasnt very good even, they could make the experience so much better with a little consideration for decor and uniforms and all.

1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp salt or as you like it

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…
