Chettinad region in Tamil Nadu has always fascinated me with its centuries-old magnificent mansions, temples, and rich culture and cuisine. Chettinad means the land of Chettiyars, who were bankers, traders, and businessmen. I love Chettinad cuisine for its immensely rich and flavourful dishes.
Nook at Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park is having a Chettinad Food festival, ‘Chettinad Samayal’ till 24th May 2019.
Don’t miss the chance to savor the feast by Chef Murthy and his team. Some of my favorites include - kuzhi paniyaram, vellaiyappam, meen varuval, vada, thenkuzhal, Chettinad chicken, sundakkai (turkey berry) vathal kulambu, pachadi, and other Chettinad special dishes. They served us ‘maapilai samba’ and ‘Manachanallur ponni’ rice along with biryani and ghee rice. It’s always best to #knowyouringredients and local products than going behind ‘firangi superfoods’.
We had Kavuni arasi (black rice) sweet, badam halwa and kummayam (a sweet made of lentils and jaggery) for desserts and everything had very earthy flavors and that’s the simplicity about this cuisine.
The fest is on till May 24th and the buffet is available for lunch and dinner
