Regional Specials at Park Balluchi:

Just as in culture, geography and climate, diversity can be found in India’s food as well. The delicious Indian recipes, as rich and diverse as its civilization, have been passed on through generations. At Park Balluchi, we endeavor to present to you different strokes of regional Indian cuisine – authentic delicacies and street food as they are relished in India.

This month, we are showcasing two such dishes. Amritsari Kulche Chole and Mumbai Pav Bhaji.

In the holy city of Amritsar, nobody can go hungry. For pilgrims and the poor, there’s the divine langar at the Golden Temple. For tourists and the locals, there are dhabas  –  a hole-in-the-wall eatery that dishes up the most flavorful food at the humblest of prices. The Amritsari Kulcha is worth devouring, certainly  –   it’s this plump, yet flaky flour flatbread, soft with potato and onion, spiced with pepper, chilly, cumin and dried pomegranate seeds on the inside and crunchy with oodles of butter on the outside. It is served with ‘chole’ and tamarind chutney, jaggery, onion and green chilies.

Pav Bhaji is almost synonymous with Mumbai Street food. It is said that the origin of this dish can be traced back to the rise of the textile mills in Mumbai. The impoverished mill workers preferred to have a cheap light and nutritious lunch during their short lunch break, so a vendor created this innovative dish. Initially, it remained the food of the mill workers. With time the dish found its way into central Mumbai and other parts of the city, and then to the restaurants all over the city. It’s popularity grew and Pav Bhaji is now available in almost all Indian fast food restaurants across the globe. Enjoy this melange of spiced vegetables topped with chopped onions, lemon and cilantro served with soft buttered pav at Park Balluchi.

March 8th is Women’s Day:

Women’s History Month highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. This March 8th, we are celebrating International Women’s Day by offering a complimentary Mango Lassi to all women who visit Park Balluchi on this day.

Holi Specials at Park Balluchi:

Holi is the festival of color celebrating the beginning of warmer weather, the triumph of good over evil and the importance of love and of happiness. The festivities of Holi bring thousands of people out onto the streets in a dazzling display of color and good cheer. And how can food be far behind? We will be serving Holi specials on our Lunch Buffet on Wednesday, March 23th. Come, celebrate with us and enjoy Pakoras, Jalebi, Gujjiya, Puri and many other traditional foods.

Biryani – even the word sounds exotic, smells aromatic and promises a yummy treat. So what is the basic biryani? It is a one pot dish – a mixture of marinated mutton, chicken or fish with special spices and yogurt, cooked well before being added onto half cooked long grained basmati rice with a touch of saffron and other garnish like raisins, mint, cashewnuts and caramalized onions.

If we were to describe Biryani in one word, it would most certainly be ‘Royal’. The aroma wafts to reveal the richness and spices that this concoction is known for! It manages to mark its place in every ceremony and occasion throughout the seasons. The biryani in India is prepared in different ways in every household. However, the biryani of Hyderabad, Calcutta, Kashmir and Lucknow tend to be more popular in India.

India is a land of rich history, whose culture is varied and strongly influenced by the many invaders in the past. Biryani is said to have got its origin in India during the Mughal dynasty. This aromatic dish was at first specially prepared for the royals. With changing times, slowly this dish gained popularity and started spreading to many parts of India. Taking in the many likes and dislikes of the regional cuisines and availability of spices, Biryani metamorphosed and thus many regional varieties of Biryani came into existence.

banner-biryaniThe world famous Hyderabadi Biryani is more of a Mughlai origination and is prepared with a lot of spices, soft mutton pieces, yogurt, rice, and saffron as the special ingredient that takes it over the top. The authentic Hyderabadi biryani is meticulously prepared in the ‘Kutchi’ (raw) biryani style, in which raw rice and raw meat are cooked together in a ‘handi’ (earthen pot) with spices and a little bit of water. It takes meticulous planning and a lot of time to prepare Hyderabadi biryani. The richness of Hyderabadi biryani is due to its unique cooking style.

The city of Lucknow is home to some of the finest recipes of biryani. The biryani here is cooked differently, with the meat and rice at a slow flame to make it more tender and aromatic in flavor. Then there is the biryani which is from the valleys of Kashmir in North India. Here the biryani is prepared with a touch of sweetness imparted by raisins and dry fruits that are added in. The Calicut biryani is prepared with the least of spices and is considered to be a very subtle dish, making it simple, yet rich, bland yet delicious, for those who prefer a light but captivating meal. The vegetable biryani has its mouth watering effects too, with the spices and richness intact minus the meat.

Biryani is one of those dishes that is diverse and satisfying enough to be the only one on the table. Some like to embellish it with a raita (a yogurt-based dip of cucumber, onion and tomato) that balances the heat of the biryani or just garnish it with a few onion rings and lime wedges.

A delicacy, savory and must try, indeed. Dig into a variety of tongue tantalizing Biryanis and Savor India’s favorite rice preparation at the Biryani Festival at Park Balluchi.

Curry is any dish which is part gravy and part meat, vegetables or lentils. In India, a majority of what we eat comes in a curry form, but the word itself probably doesn’t. Traditionally, the word curry was not used by Indians who called their dishes by specific names like korma, rogan josh, vindaloo etc. India has many different kinds of Curries to offer. To help break down the Indian curry chart, we’ve drawn up a list of some important ones available at our Curry Fest!

MAKHANI
A delicious creamy tomato curry with fenugreek leaves and cream commonly used in north Indian cuisines. It is an all time favorite Indian curry on almost all restaurant menus!

KORMA

This creamy, cashew nut based curry is one of the mildest      Indian curries. It has its roots in the Mughlai cuisine of modern-day India and Pakistan. The term Shahi, meaning ‘Royal’, used for some kormas indicates its status as a prestige dish, rather than an everyday meal.

curry festKADHAI
Kadhai style curry is a mouthwatering combination of onion, tomato curry with bell peppers, red chili, garlic, coriander leaves and traditional Indian spices cooked in ghee. It is one of the most popular curry recipes of Indian and Punjabi cuisine.

NILGIRI
This curry gets its name from the famous blue mountains of South India- the Nilgiris. The exotic flavors of coconut, tamarind, ginger, curry leaves, mustard and coriander combine into a refreshing new taste and intoxicating aroma. The perfect mix of Indian spices make this dish extremely delicious.

maxresdefaultSAAG

Saag is a North Indian leaf-based curry cooked with a delicate blend of Indian spices. Saag is actually just a generic word for greens, but since mustard leaves, fresh fenugreek, collard greens, etc. are harder to come by, Spinach (palak), is generally used.

 

KOLHAPURI
This spicy curry has its origin in Kolhapur, a historical city in    south Maharashtra. Kolhapuri cuisine is known for its hot, spicy and pungent flavors. Onion, tomato, red chilies, sesame, poppy seeds and a blend of half a dozen Indian spices give this curry it’s unique flavor.)

VINDALOO

A curry of Goan origin, vindaloo is a fiery, hot “sweet and sour” style curry made with garam masala, chilies, ginger, vinegar and sugar. Great for chili lovers, but if you don’t like spicy food it’s definitely best avoided!
