“All great achievements require time”-Maya Angelou
The soft steps, that i took so carefully to ascend the stone stairs rung in, like melody to my ears. The hints of art strewn across, called me yonder to maybe hear of the stories of the hand that painted them.
I, was in the haven that “M.F. Hussain Sahab”, had once called home.
About Banjara Melting Pot :
Banjara isn’t an establishment that has been unheard of. Before the boom of restaurants in every possible “nukkad” (corner), it had been a name well known and loved by all, for their marvellous coastal cuisine.
Decor & Ambiance:
The decor is a beautiful amalgam of finesse & sophistication. The paintings that are hung methodically are a mix of eclectic and beautiful. You will find the colour scheme of the restaurant to be very pleasing, perfect for a cosy meal.
The ambiance, is relaxing and calm with that diffused lighting and the warm glow.
The servers are efficient and cordial.
The Grub Story :
If you presume, even before me starting, “what can be in it for a vegetarian?” Then you’re wrong. I, was pleasantly surprised at the extensive options.
- Palak Shorba : A very light and flavourful shorba, made with spinach. An instant warm feeling guaranteed.
- Paneer ke Shikanje : The cubes of paneer are marinated and tandoored. The results are fantastic, the flavours are more earthy and you can always have another one.
- Hara Bhara Kabab : The chopped & blended veggies, made into perfect round dumplings were just right. A little spicy and a lot delicious.
- Mushroom Pepper Dry : The mushrooms were tossed in your typical South Indian pepper sauce with curry leaves & chillies. Great with naans.
- Paneer Ghee Roast with Neer Dosa : Match made in the kitchen heaven, I may say. The paneer just transforms into the most silky and soft cubes of flavour, with the pungent aroma of Ghee & Roasted Spices slathered on. Worked like a charm with a plate of 3 Neer Dosas.
- Phalguni Subzi : A brilliant innovative way to make sure that you eat your veggies and eat them with delight. The half & half combination of green leafy Subzi& red paneer muttar Subzi married into one.
- Rice variants : I’m never a rice eater, so I couldn’t sample what my friends ate, but boy! They looked delish.
A top shot of our dishes :
- Gajar ka Halwa : The Gajar ka Halwa was done well, with the right amount of sweetness.
- Kulfi : Lived upto the expectations. The Kulfis were the perfect way to end your dinner.
Verdict : Banjara Melting Pot, happens to wow me over with its signature dish “Phalguni Subzi” & their wide selection of dishes for the vegetarian & non-vegetarian sides. They specifically are well known for their heart warming coastal cuisines, where there is an extensive use of seafood.
It truly is a Melting Pot, of so many cultures here, that you will always find something for yourself.
