There are Andhra style meals and there are Andhra style feasts. This one is definitely the latter, with a massive menu that just goes on and on, all for Rs. 169, tops. The Dakshina Mandapam is throwing open this banquet today, between 7 pm and 11 pm, and it is served with both Andhra tradition and modern convenience in a fake, plastic Artikai leaf. If that doesn't suit you well enough, you have the option of the real leaf waiting by the side.
The fete commences with a welcome drink of Aam-ras, followed by a buffet of the following, today:
Starters: Mirapakai Bajji, Murukulu
Salads: Cucumber salad, Green salads
Pickles: Avakai, Maagai, Gongura, Nimmakai
Dry Vegetables: Totakura, Birakai, Dosakai
Wet Vegetables: Pappu Chaaru, Nimmakai rasam, Dosakai Pulusu, Kakarkai Kura, Bagaara Baingan, Artikai Kura, Kandagadda Massh Ki Dal.
Rice: White rice, Pulihaara, Curd rice
Dessert: Bandar Laddu, Khubaani Ka Meetha, Jahaangiri, Pirni, Ice-cream (Pista, Licchi)
Now here is a meal you can do justice to, only if you starve yourself off the first two meals of the day. So make your preparations, and turn up at Taj Tristar for a bonafide pelli bhojinam.
