PREVIEW FOR THE CHETTINAD FOOD FESTIVAL
What do you do if you want to have an Antarctican food festival in Hyderabad? The Taj would just fly down the chefs from its hotel in Antarctica. Okay, possibly that's a little exaggerated, but these folks appear to have it all over the place. Here's the latest display of another arm of their amazingly spread-out culinary prowess.

Chettinad (Karaikudi area of Tamil Nadu) is a place where most of the Chettiyar community lives, and the ladies of this geography are famous for their excellent culinary skills. And for its Chettinad food festival, the Taj has flown in two of the Taj Connemara chefs who specialize in the Chettiyar style of cooking, Jaya Kumar and Mahesh Kumar. And the two chefs are all set to offer the very special items for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

The Chettiyar style of cooking has spices used in higher than normal amounts for the special taste. And the range of dishes is so vast, the hotel claims that in this 10-day food festival, there will be different items everyday, with absolutely no repetition.

For non-vegetarians, the chef's recommendations are Kari Kozhambu, Kozhi Melegu and Meen Varuval, and for vegetarians they are Paruppu Urundai, Kolambu (lentil dumplings with gravy) and Veendakai Malagu. In the desserts section, Semiya Payasam, Aval Puttu (puff rice with sugar, coconut and cardamom) and Vazthandu Kootu (made with banana stem) are the special items.

Of course, if you are interested in knowing the prices then these folks aren't targeting you, but here it is, anyway. The buffet at lunch and dinner can be had for Rs. 345 plus taxes. This price includes 2 bottles of Sand Piper or 2 large Bacardi for the alcohol consumers, and for the non-alcoholics there is Pineapple juice.

To add to the southie ambience carefully recreated, there will be live performances on the mridangam and the ghatam by "renowned" artists everyday.

Please contact Vishal Dilling Patkar, Restaurant Manager, at 339-3939 for further details.
