Sunday, September 26, 2021, 15:21 Hrs  [IST]

Banjara Restaurant at Goldfinch Hotel, Mumbai is set to take the food lovers of Mumbai on an exotic culinary trail with The Grand Trunk Road food festival which has started from 22nd September 2021. Aimed at capturing the diverse and rich culture of Grand Trunk road by taking patrons on the trail of the specialties of the cities, you can relish the dishes from Chittagong & Kolkata to Kabul via stopovers at Amritsar, Delhi and Allahabad. The historic Grand Trunk Road is one of Asia's oldest and longest highways spanning across an impressive 2,500 km running through the parts of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. The food festival is inspired by the culinary extravaganza of the journey through this food festival. The GT Road food festival makes the discerning foodies savor the flavors and authentic dishes from gastronomic regions like Chittagong, Kabul, Amritsar, Allahabad, Delhi, and Kolkata. The food trail on the oldest and historic GT Road will offer its patrons street-style cooked delicacies from Amritsar like Sarson Ka Saag with Makki de Roti and Pindi Chhole Kulche. The menu also features the Crystal Chowk Ka Tandoori Chicken, a dish that borrows its name from the popular street in the heart of Amritsar. Kunna Gosht, a Punjabi delicacy, different from the other meat delicacies is its distinct flavour and aroma, owing to its slow cooking method in earthen ware. Patrons can also look forward to enjoy the cuisine of the Pashtun people living in Kabul & Peshawar including Kabuli Palaw (national dish of Afganistan), Qorma-e-Gosht (lamb stew), Qorma-e-Lubia Shaljam (kidney beans stew), to the street foods of Kabul like Chapli Kebab (patty of lamb mince), Bolani (stuffed thin crust bread) to Mantu (meat dumplings) and Ashak (vegetable dumplings) served with tomato and yoghurt sauces. We shall also feature popular Pakistani specialty Raan-e-Musallam, wherein a spice-marinated lamb leg is slow-cooked overnight. Some of the recommended must-tries, helmed by Executive Chef, include Patay Tikka, which is liver of lamb covered and cooked in its fat. Another specialty is the Peshawari Charsi Murg Karahi, a speciality of Peshawar, and the saying goes “when someone smokes one joint of hash in Peshawar (which they do openly), they eat around two kilos of meat., thus the name. Guests can revel in irresistible delicacies like Gobi Ameenabadi (mildly spiced wok tossed cauliflower), Langarwali Dal, Patrani Machi and Mutton Burra Kebab and most famous Delhiwali Chaat which shall include Kuliya Chat of Purani Delhi. Also, not to forget Saddi Dilli de Chhole Bhature, an all-day Delhi specialty along with sweet and crispy Jalebi with Rabdi. Going further you have traditional Awadhi cuisine from Allahabad which includes succulent Galouti Kebabs or try its veggie version, Suran Ki Galouti, skewered by their Masterchef Bapon. Some other must-tries from the region boasting of a royal, culinary heritage include Zaffrani Paneer Tikka, Machi Begam Bahar (mildly-spiced slow-cooked fish with caramelised onion and cashew nuts) and of course, Awadhi Biryani, a dish brought to India by Persian travellers and merchants. “There is a misconception that Bengali cuisine is largely a meat eater’s delight. Kolkata is also known for its hearty vegetarian specials,” says chef Surjit, who will dish out Begun Bhaja along with Bhapa Paneer that features paneer, flavoured with mustard, coconut and green chillies and steamed in pumpkin leaves, and Patishapta, a decadent rice-flour crepe filled with coconut, khoya and jaggery. Seafood lovers can relish Katla Macher Kaliya and Chingri Malai Curry. For Meat lovers chef is dishing out Mejbani Mangsho, Chicken Chaap & Murg Rezala. End the meal with Muktogachar Monda & Rasogolla or Mishti doi. To make this festival more vibrant, the hotel staff of the restaurant will carry the look and feel of this festival and will be dressed in traditional attires. Furthermore to entice the guests there will be cultural performances during the festival representing the cultures of the regions the G T Road is passing through. The festival aims to offer a unique experience with an expansive selection of popular dishes having originated from various cities on the GT Road. Guests can enjoy this festival starting from September 22nd, 2021 to 6th October 2021. Banjara Restaurant Goldfinch Hotel, Mumbai will be offering different flavors and varieties for this festival.
