For that leisurely Sunday


IF YOU have grown up during the 70s, that Abba song `Sunday morning beautiful day', must have hoisted in you that image of an utopian Sunday morning. Such instant transportation to a leisurely yet divine feeling within the first two lines of that song!

But in today's hectic work cycle, one feels, the Sunday morning has anyway become special. Busy working during the rest of the days, Sunday morning is that special time that one gets to spend with one's loved ones. And to make it somewhat out of the ordinary, those in charge of the kitchen too roll out a Sunday lunch to be savoured leisurely even as you catch up on the week's happenings with each other.

But to turn this family soiree a bit chic, a bit impressive, or to save yourself from spending that extra time in the kitchen for that special lunch to fit in a bit of Sunday shopping in the happening Sector-18 market in Noida, then Radisson MBD can fit into your plan of things this coming Sunday. Started just a few weeks back, its coffee shop, S-18 has now an extended Sunday lunch to offer its guests a variety of dishes from kitchens around the country.

Beginning at 12 noon and extended till about 4 p.m. the menu that would meet you is a mix of Hyderabadi and Punjabi food. Chef Ajay Tyagi says starting with soups to salads to kababs to the main course and desserts, the lunch is a lavish spread coupled with juices, colas and hard drinks too.

To begin with, you have an option of having either the Tomato Dhaniya Shorba or the Hyderabadi Lamb Shorba as a soup. Nine varieties of salads including Mango and Grilled Tomato, Low Calorie Mushroom Salad with Beansprouts and Paprika spiced Potatoes can be on your plate alongside kababs like Atishi Tangdi, Tandoori Chaampein, Paneer Achaari Tikka and Aloo Mutter Tikki. For the main course, you have an option to choose from the famous Hyderbadi Biryani, Gosht Patiyala Shahi, Macchhli Masaledar Amritsari, Butter Chicken, Rajma Masala, Kadhai Paneer Kaali Mirch, Kulfa Katli, Sarson Ka Saag with Makki ki Roti, Aloo Gobi Masaledar and Subj Jhalfarezi with Paalak.

The dessert section too is alluring enough with a wide line-up of souffles, cakes, ice creams and brownies. Tyagi says, for those looking for some European dishes to go with the fare, they have Roasted Lamb with Charred Artichokes, Fish all Abuzzi, Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Ragout and Summer Vegetables Crepes with Pesto Cream. He says, since this lunch is based on the concept of "What the nation eats on Sundays", the menu card will change every week or two, thus bringing in the regional flavours and delicacies from different states. "To name a few regions, the menu will cover Anglo Indian, Punjabi and Eastern India to Central, Western, Southern and Even Gomantak," he adds. Well then, after wrapping up Hyderabadi and Punjabi menu, who knows, the next week's offering might be the dishes that you grew up relishing on a leisurely Sunday afternoon. Keep a tab on it.
