If you always thought that the best part of a bus journey was the halt at a dhaba
on the way, you are still thinking right - for, this dhaba here is not going to
cost anywhere near that.
The Kebab-e-Bahar restaurant of Hotel Taj Banjara is organizing a Dhaba Food Festival for a period of 10 days. This has been one of the popular festivals at the hotel for several years, bringing the Dhaba ambience right into the middle of the city.
Live counters, kitchen baskets containing onions, strings of lemons and green chillies, the highway milestone, petrol bunks, a grass-laden bullock cart with a filmi poster of One Two Ka Four, a few charpoys and lanterns with Daler Mehndi's numbers perfectly create the Dhaba ambience here.
Special Dhaba cuisine such as Khewema Mutter, Gurudakapoora Kaleji Masala, Baingan Bharta, Sarson Ka Saag and Maa Chole Ki Dal can be chosen for dinner. Chef Chamanlal recommends Tandoori Chicken and Paneer Tikka for starters, with the Paya Soup of Lamb Trotters as a rich appetizer. For the main course you can choose Aloo Wadian (dumplings of urad dal with potatoes, brain masala, kheema mutter and tandoori aloo), traditional Sarson Da Saag (made with mustard leaves served with dollop of butter), Makki Ki Roti, Missi Roti, Paratha, Mutter Pulao, Wadian Chawal and the exotic Lobia, and Rajma And Chole from the menu.
As for desserts, one can give a try to Malpua (made of maida soaked in sugar syrup) and hot jalebi made with rabdi and kulfi-faluda. One interesting drink is the dhaba chai - overboiled milk with spices, ginger, cardomom and mint leaves to leave that lingering taste of the Dhaba - to round up.
