The Bengali Food Festival at Trident, Hyderabad

Many of my friends ask: Why do you write about food? My answer to them is simple - I cook or I blog about food as eating has always been my most reliable way of understanding the world!. Reveling in a delightful morsel of rice or well made bread gives me immense happiness and it restores a sense of familiarity. And I truly love that feeling.  Today's post is about my experience tasting a myriad of dishes made as a part of tasting event for Bengali Food Festival at Trident, Hyderabad. This is my first time experiencing the cuisine in such close quarters. Being a vegetarian, read on to know more on what I got to taste from a land popular for Maach (fish) and Bhaat (rice)!

Well, I thought there was no better way to enjoy this tart fruit other than with yogurt. It is like match made in heaven: stewed plums + cold yogurt. Today's recipe proved me completely wrong and am so glad it did. :-) Read on to get the recipe for Plum Crisp with Dried Raisins

The Parsi Food Festival at Taj Krishna, Hyderabad

What better way to celebrate the onset of monsoons than devouring on some good Parsi food? Only once before did I taste this cuisine even though I read and heard a lot about it through various blogs, magazines and from close friends. Most of the Parsi dishes are known for their unique balance of sweetness and acidity. It is this sensuous play of flavor elements that makes this cuisine truly irresistible. So, when I got an invite to be a part of a Parsi Food Festival currently happening at Firdaus (Taj Krishna), I jumped on the opportunity like a hungry cat. :-) Was the experience worth it?

J for Jeedipappu Pakodi Recipe | Cashew Nut Fritters | Kaju Pakoda | Andhra Recipes

Today's recipe is for the letter J, picking up from where I left off for my A to Z Andhra Recipe blogging. Cashew Nut Fritters (or Jeedipappu Pakodi as we say it in Telugu) is an highly addictive, easy vegan snack that can be made in a matter of minutes. Every evening, almost every roadside shop (especially the ones beside booze shops!!) fry up a big batch of munchies like these. Though high in calorie and cost, when eaten in moderation there is nothing as delightful as a crispy cashew pakoda with a cuppa of hot chai.  :-)
