Awadhi Food Festival at ITC Rajputana, Jaipur

It isn’t often when one sees deep, ethnic Indian food at a starred hotel that does justice to the cuisine in question. The Awadhi food festival at ITC Rajputana Jaipur is one such where you’ll find a balanced selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes on offer that are guaranteed to bring back memories (if any) of your last trip to Lucknow or perhaps compel you to visit the city that hosts this rich, aromatic and complex cuisine.

Start with a Paya shorba or Badaam ka shorba if you’re a vegetarian. You’ll find both to be full of flavor and quite satisfying. It may even be an idea to eat the kebabs and shorbas together. Try the  Kebabs, a fried patty of yogurt and reduced milk with a soft and slightly gummy texture and a mild sour undertone that’ll go superbly with your shorba. Indulge in Quorma, Qaliyan, Salan and the dishes which would literally melt in the mouth and we’re not saying that lightly.

The Awadhi Food festival is on till September30, 2012 at ITC Rajputana, Jaipur.

Save yourself a trip to Lucknow and visit ITC Rajputana for the festival.
