Rajdhani Thali Restaurant – Celebrating Raw and Ripe Mangoes with Maharaja

IMG_3743

Rajdhani is a vegetarian thali restaurant serving meals with Gujarati and Rajasthani dishes. It is known as a Khandhani restaurant where food recipes are collected from villages just like our grandma recipes and then is explored  in the kitchen by Maharaja (Master Chef) for volume production and then gets introduced in the menu.  We were invited to taste the special dishes to be introduced this season, Mango specials.  It was awesome spread of dishes made of raw and ripe mangoes and the Maharaja stood next to us and explained the dishes and its ingredients in the way we could understand.  These special dishes would be rotated to the customers as the part of the regular thali during this season.

If you are wondering about the reach of mango in the cuisine, you are in for a surprise.  Right from salad to dessert, mango is there in each and their inclusion in the dish is so natural that we do not feel it as an obstruction to the flavor of the dish, in fact in many cases, it enhanced the flavor of the dish – one of it is the mango jalebi.

Restaurant Review : Sree Gupta Bhavan,Velachery, Chennai

Sree Gupta Bhavan, popularly known as ‘Loiee’ has opened their outlet and restaurant at 100 feet road, Velachery next to Sangeetha Restaurant , opp to Subway.  It was quite a talk around our area, we decided to check the restaurant out for dinner on a Sunday.  It was just 2 days old when we visited the restaurant. The restaurant was brightly lit and buzzing with activity.  Ground floor is dedicated to Chaat and sweets counter and more like a fast food joint.  First floor is the restaurant and was almost full with people waiting. Surprised at the reception this restaurant has got in an area filled with restaurants every few steps.
