Medley of tastes

Here is a remixed veggie fare. Want to check it out? Head for Sindoori


VEGGIES ARE boring? Not at this food festival. The Jugalbandi Vegetarian Food Festival on at Hotel Sindoori is taking good ol' veggie fare and turning it into a funked-up, remixed version that should have patrons going back for more. Cuisines from all over the country will be served up at this dinner buffet on till the end of the week. It's a celebration of the colours of India, of the spirit of varied cultures and, of course, of a range of colourfully innovative dishes.

This 100 per cent vegetarian food festival is a mixture of delights from North and South India. From Karaikudi pal kutti to kumbh hara dhania, the Sindoori chefs have got creative with family favourites, adding some jazz to their regular menu. The menu includes aalavelli masiyal, boha raita, undhia and bharval.

Even uninteresting vegetables such as rib gourd get a makeover as peerkangai paal curry and good old beans take the form of more exciting sounding karamani usli. Desserts include the all-time favourite srikhand as well as sikandari mithai, chakka pazham payasam and kaju anjeer roll.

The dinner buffet is priced at Rs. 160 plus taxes. What really adds to the festival's element of jugalbandi though, is the live fusion music by Naushad Khan and DJ Eldon, who will play an exhilarating blend of Indian and disco music.

The Jugalbandi Veg Food Festival is on till August 15 from 7 p.m. onwards at East India Company, The Sindoori Hotel, 26/27 Poonamallee High Road, ph: 52157777.
