Few things bring people together like festivals. After all, it creates shared moments between people as they celebrate together. Along with fun and food, festivals usually promise a good time for everyone. And Deepavali is no exception.
When one thinks of Deepavali, aside from their eye-catching decorations and dances, the festival food is what jumps to mind. It’s rare to enjoy the tasty morsels that only seem to be available during the celebration. Well, do we have a treat for you. This Deepavali, enjoy selected feasts as you celebrate with friends and family!
1. Mandarin Oriental
It’s time to go back to the roots of India with this feast! Mandarin Oriental presents the regional cuisines of India, prepared by Chef Rajiv Vatsyayan and his kitchen brigade. Each authentic dish and drink allows visitors to indulge in the taste of India embodied by their seasonal spices and ingredients.
Some dishes that stood out were the Sikandari Khush Ran and the Tandoori Champein. Both dishes are made with lamb, just cooked in different ways. Sikandari Khush Ran is a leg of lamb marinated in the chef’s special blend of spices and air cooked in a steamer with root vegetables. The Tandoori Champein is made up of marinated lamb chops cooked in the tandor oven. But, if you like fish, the dish to try would be the Meen Moilee which is a specialty fish dish from the coastal region of southern India.
However, for dessert, we highly recommend trying the Fruit Pani Puri Shooter. It’s flavored water served with a fried crispy flatbread. Plus, it’s fun to eat because you can add your favorite ingredients to the flatbread before washing everything down with the flavored water. Tasting this popular Indian street food was definitely an experience!
This festival will take place in Mosiac from October 20 to 24. India’s regional cuisines priced at RM188+ per person for lunch and RM228+ per person for dinner or Sunday brunch.
