Kitchens of India Meet Streets of Italy at ongoing Food Festival ‘Go Indiano’ in Jaipur

What happens when two of the most popular and loved cuisines come together ? It’s a gourmet’s paradise ! And this paradise is currently finding its abode at The Lalit Jaipur with its ongoing food festival – Go Indiano.


One of the top luxurious 5 star hotels – The Lalit Jaipur is hosting a food festival with a menu that has inhaled the spices from kitchens of India and picked some flavors from streets of Italy to put them all together in a way never done before. You must all have had paneer on a pizza, and love it, but this menu at Go Indiano goes beyond the cliches and fuses together the most eccentric veggies of both countries to create dishes you would yearn to give a try.

Pumpkin Canneloni with Makhani Sauce

When Jaipur Beat had a word with Executive Chef Lenin Sreedharan, his expertise in Italian cuisine could be tasted in his knowledge of ingredients and spirit to experiment by mixing the most unusual vegetables, fruits, sauces and the like to form the menu of Go Indiano.
The recipes were as interesting to hear about as they were while eating. One of them was ‘Bharwan Kumb‘ – Kumb meaning mushroom stuffed with spinach ricotta and mushroom soil, fried artichoke & parmesan fondue.

Our favorite among all these was the Uttapam Lasagne ! It has layers of Uttapam because ‘Lasagne’ means layers of pasta sheets mixed with sauces, here it were the Uttapam layers topped with curry leaf pesto, loaded with cheese and served with the tri-color sauces.

The menu is a concoction of flavors of all parts of India i.e. East, West, North, South blended with those of Italy therefore giving your tongue a tour of both countries. With interesting choices like Kadai Paneer Pizza, Spaghetti with Almond Paste, Parmesan Creme Brulee (A mix of sweet & savory), the menu of Go Indiano is a well-thought and quite a daring one when it comes to experimental cuisine.

After a whole-hearty full meal, it’s time to entertain your sweet tooth, but there is no place for a simple & usual dessert in the dictionary of Go Indiano ! So last but not the least, the most creative dish of the menu – Tea-Ra-Misu was served. The popular coffee-flavoured Italian custard dessert – Tiramisu is made at The Lalit Jaipur with strong Masala tea flavors – just like an Indian likes it. Chai flavored dessert, what else could you ask for ?

The food festival is on only for 5 more days. So this week, don’t just go Indian or Italiano, Go Indiano  😀

Bengali Binge Festival at The Lalit Jaipur

It’s monsoons and this time around it’s raining food in Jaipur ! Jaipur has turned into such a melting pot of culture and food , that you name a cuisine and lo and behold, you have it.

img_3819-jpg

Just before Durga puja, from the land of “maacher jhol and bhaat” , comes the lip smacking regional cuisine of West Bengal at The Lalit Jaipur as the Bengali Binge Food Festival. Chef de Cuisine Jassi from The Lalit Jaipur and Chef Shahdeb Kamila from The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata have designed a tantalizing menu for the food lovers in town.

img_3764-jpg

We thought it would be all a non-vegetarian affair with vegetarian food as just a side show but how the chef heroes the vegetables and weaves pure magic in his menu. Keeping the preference and sensibilities of the City of Jaipur in Mind, the Vegetarian selection of the Menu has been crafted with a lot of care and creativity. Chef Jassi informed us due to the presence of a small Bengali community living in Jaipur they managed to get all the vegetables absolutely fresh off the cart. Of course, the non-vegetarians needn’t lose heart. There cannot be a Bengali Food Festival without Fish and Chicken.

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, we all sat down expectantly over a immaculately set table, laden with the spices, aromatics and chutneys of this exotic state from the east. A common love for good food connecting us all foodies and bloggers present with a palpable excitement on all the expectant faces around. Sensing the same, the service was quick and the chef narrated his travails from Digha in West Bengal to Kolkata and to finally here in Jaipur. His infectious excitement as he told us which Starter to pair with which assortment of freshly prepared Chutneys and ‘Kashundhi’. There was the delectable and famous Beetroot chop and Beguni( Aubergine in a light batter) to be eaten with the Plastic Papaya Chutney or the Khajoor and Kaju Chutney for the vegetarians. The non-vegetarians could choose between the ‘Bhetki Maach Bhaja’ or the ‘Mangsher Chop’ and pair them with Sweet Tomato Chutney or the Kashundhi.

The specialty of the entire affair was also in the freshness and authenticity of the ingredients used. Right from Jharna Ghee to Sarson Tel ,’Gondhoraj Lembu’ , Maankochu (Arbi) and even the Yellow Mustard used were sourced from Kolkata. The Rest of the main course came to us as stunning Thaalis laden with the fragrant Ghee Bhaat Rice, Luchis (impeccably soft maida pooris) , Narkal Diye Cholar Dal ( ChanaDaal with Sauted Coconut slivers) , Sorson Dhoresh ( Lady fingers cooked in freshly pounded Yellow Mustard paste and Aloo Jhinga Poshto ( potato and rich gourd in poppy seeds). For the Non Vegetarians, there was Illish Macher Jhal( Hilsa in Mustard Seeds – The fish is a staple of West bengal and expensive at 1400 Rs / Kg ) and Murgir Jhol which is home-style chicken with potatoes. The chef aptly called the menu Gram Banglar Khabar (The food from the Village of Bengal). The food was surprisingly light yet mouth-watering. The day ended perfectly on a sweet note with the decedent ‘Roshogulla’ and ‘Misthi Doi’ which was polished off in no time at all.

If your mouth is watering already, this is just right time to go grab your mouthful of heaven, now.
