Here were my Appetizers, Bharlela Paplet, Talleli Mandeli, Kotimbir Wadi, and Kelyachi Kaap. I loved Kothimbir Vadi, made with cilantro, chickpea flour and spiced with garlic, chili, and turmeric.
The main course were served in earthen pots reflecting the rustic beauty of the cuisine. Here were my Mains – Kurlya che kalwan, Halwa che Saar, Sukhi kolombi, Kombdi vade, Walya cha Birda, Bharleli waangi, Jhunka bhakar, Kolombi bhaat and Ghavne (Neer Dosa). Aromatic Vangi Bhaat and a Brinjal dish were simply amazing. The aroma of ground masalas from these dishes was fantastic. The two-course meal was topped with a pink-tinged Kokum drink which was made with coconut milk and kokum fruit.
I loved the Desserts. Modak and Sev boondi were just awesome. The Modak is sweet flour dumplings stuffed with coconut, jaggery, nutmeg, and saffron. The cosy ambience of was a bonus to the dining experience.
