Food Riot


Are You a nature lover.. can You appreciate nature`s bounty?

Yes?  The Birds and the Greens with the occasional oranges and the reds!!
 How bout a Bird,

                                on a Platter, with some greens to go with it.

look below. Ain`t that a sight to behold! the Flora and Fauna, in it`s colorful best. Grilled to perfection.

Take a closer look at the portion above. The primary ingredient, the chicken is infested with the greens.  Maybe that`s what makes the dish so delectable.
The only other place where You can find  more color in a plate has to be a finely roasted, thin crust Mediterranean pizza with oodles of Cheese to compensate for the missing bird.

Take the experience to a new high with some Argentinian wine, and what better else can You ask for.

Perhaps some French red wine!
Oh.. By the way there`s one more way to have the bird. and that`s the way they do it around the Mediterranean. Some Greek, Turkish and Lebanese flavors in a platter, if You`re just looking for a starter, which has an array of cold and hot elements.

And  some bread  to prevent the flavors from flaring up over your palate . Al Perfecti!!

In case You want to avoid the pain of dipping your portion into a dip everytime You need to have a bite, then for You, there is the Moroccan Stuffed chicken. All the spices and the herbs are tucked tight into the space which once housed the internal organs of the late bird. Go ahead, just hork it down.

And if You like the stuffed chicken variety, then may I recommend "Ghazab ka Seena", which is chicken breasts stuffed with cheese and marinated in Indian herbs.

Does Your stomach now feel like a shrine for the dead of the chicken folk? It`s been the final resting place for so many of them.

Let`s talk about greens now.
 We have a fine assortment of Asian greens resting over pan fried noodles, for You. This assortment has broccoli, corn kernels and roasted dry pepper in white sauce.

While we Indians may take pride in our excusite vegetarian cusine cooked and consumed by our predominantly vegetarian populace, our neighbours to our south and east have clearly perfected the art of cooking and serving veggies. The servings that look so beautiful that You can`t resist digging into the portions.

A similar assortment of vegetables and herbs can also be floated on a pool of Thai curry over a plateau of rice

This one here is typical of the South East Asian cusine, but if You`re game enough for Fusion, then combining Pasta with Palak can be a fantastic Idea. The Greasy, Saucy nature of Palak(Spinach) combines wonderfully with Pasta to give a wonderful taste.

Experimentatiion with food cleary has it`s rewards, if You are imaginative enough.
Like serving Prawns with cherries in a cup for instance.

To be honest, my palate is conditioned to find some of the above creations a bit tricky to handle. For me the `eat street` is laid out on the spice route. A familiar spread of breads, Chicken in a spicy gravy, with ginger and coriander dressing and a modest portion of yellowed rice is my all time favorite.


Finally some desserts for You. A big scoop of icecream over a rich chocolate cake. Yumm!!

Happy Now!!


Finally, one more look at the plate which takes the Cake!
