Food Festivals

Hyderabad Food festival at Leela 

Last month we have seen the Delicacies from the kitchens of Awadh – hosted at Dilli32  in the first leg of Dine like Maharaja’s over Diwali at Leela Ambience Hotel East Delhi. Now November gets merrier with loads of delicacies from the Hyderabad city raising the chill before winters at Leela Hotel.

The best food is relished under the stars and some are the experience of leg 2 of “Dine Like a  Maharajas – Hyderabad Food Festival at Leela hotel.

Get in open with Keema- Kabab being rolled out right on the open air barbeque not only lits up the place with the flavor of the Hyderabadi food but also announces it’s winter and time to dine out in open.

While most of us look at Hyderabadi food as food for non-vegetarians. This festival has no less options for Vegetarians either, while it’s definitely a treat for non-veg lovers.

Let’s Start with Starters.

Being a Tea Lover,  I preferred picking up chai in place of a cold beverage. And they had a detailed Tea counter too.

The Tea Stall

The Vegetarian options had the following

#Valligudda Pakode

#Aaloo ke garlay

#Hyderabadi Sabj sheek

#Paneer 65

#Varqoi Lukmi

Everything Vegetarian from Hyderabadi starters at the Fest

While the main course had an extensive range of veg and Non-veg dishes. Being vegetarian let me take you through my plate. And here goes the Vegetarian menu on my plate, in the Bowls it’s is Kaddu ka Dalcha and besan ke nimbus while on the plate Churan ke Karele, Nafeez Palak, Paneer Tamater ka kut, Bhagare baigan, Diwani Handi which is a kind of Hyderabadi mix veg.

Everything Vegetarian and too much to Handle

and what I loved the most was Besan K nimbu made in tamarind with a classic sweet and sour taste, also the Nafeez Palak a very palatable Palak dish that had minced Paneer,  dry fruits and lots of cream to add amazing taste to this. A must try for vegetarians.

Moving on to the most irresistible part of the entire buffet was the desserts, and what’s so special about the food festival is Chef Ashwani Singh always keeps the customer in mind and curates the menu accordingly that there is enough and more options for everyone to pick and choose from. A delectable range of desserts that was simply breathtaking with a feeling that you have entered a Sweetshop.

Sahi Tukda & Double ka Meetha
Desserts – best of the lot
Halwa & Gulab Jamun 

On my plate I tried having everything and trust me it’s a task to satisfy the sweets craving in you if you have the sweet tooth.

Desserts on my Plate 

A must try items are Dates ( Kajoor ) Kasam halwa and since it’s winters you can’t say no to Halwa. Khubani ka Meetha and Gir a firdaus.

A self proclaimed storyteller who loves food and is a health freak to the core. A person who has got a sense of humor to lighten up the most serious stuff. i love the life as it comes, planning is not my cup of tea since i am coffee lover. I brew my own jokes in all situations and love being my own audience. Happy go lucky is the attitude that i carry around. and i stay away from people who throw attitude(cant understand why they carry the weight of their attitude when all they can do is to throw it on others )
