REVIEW FOR PADHARO MHARE DES - A FESTIVAL OF CULTURE & CUISINES OF MARWAR
Ista is organizing a Marwari festival called Padharo Mhare Des, from 10th July to 26th July. Every evening, from 7pm, you will now be treated to colourful traditions and cuisines of the region of Marwar.
‘Padharo Mhare Des’ is a unique collection of recipes from the royal region of Rajasthan that features very prominently on the food map of India. Marwari food is known to be primarily vegetarian and is prepared in ghee and other milk products.
The menu - both ala carte and the traditional thali - features a wide vegetarian selection of exotic dishes from the Marwar region. The magnificent and popular Rajasthani Dal-Bati-Churma is supplemented with the Mawa Kachori from Jodhpur, the Alwar Ka Mawa, Malpuas from Pushkar, Rasogullas from Bikaner, and Ghevar from Jaipur.
Ista has also brought in some non-vegetarian dishes from the Gharanas of the Rajputs of the region to cater to the liking of the meat lovers. For one, there's the unique dish of the Maharaja of Salwar - the Junge Maas - a favorite among the Maharajas of the medieval period of Rajasthan.
Each of the dishes has been prepared with patrons' sentiments kept in mind, with separate cooking sections for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.
The festival is being helmed by Ista's Executive Chef, Amit Wadhawan, a specialist in Indian cuisine. He has 2 visiting Maharajas - Sawai Singh and Prakash Kumabath - specially flown in from Marwar, in order to give an authentic touch to the food.
‘Padharo Mhare Des’ also has some entertainment for guests, including traditional Rajasthani folk music and dance, and a puppet show, amid a colorful set up.
