The start to my social dining experience couldn't have been better than this! What I loved about the experience? Everything. From the word go. The hosts, Harsh & Chandana Advani along with Harsh's sister are such wonderful hosts. Warm, friendly, relaxed, they made all of us feel at home. Priti, Lalitha, Abhijit, Seema and me, we all got along like we knew each other from before. We shared delicious stories from the pages of our lives as heartily as we shared the awesome food prepared by Chandana. First came the masala chaas, which was totally refreshing with just the right amount of masala and mint. Then, the Katchallu was served, whose tangy flavour was heart-winning. The next appetisier which was made of rice and gram flour (oops i forgot the name) was also yum. The mint chutney accompaniment was delicately sweet and different from the mint chutneys I've had before. Gular Kebab was served next and it was tasty beyond words. Melt- in-the-mouth chicken mince balls, deeply fried and stuffed with onions. I went on to have 4-5 of these, despite the fact that more food was yet to come. Irresistible and how! The next item to be served made a grand entry, the signature Bihari dish, Litti Choka. Wheat balls stuffed with sattu and served with baigan ka bharta. Though it was undoubtedly delicious, I found it too heavy and honestly, I am not too much of a mustard fan, so a second helping didn’t happen. We were almost full, so Chandana gave us a small break before she served the main course and we all chit chatted some more. The relaxed pace (we were there for almost 4 hours!) really helped us enjoy the meal to the fullest. Full marks to Chandana for being so patient. The main course had the Dehati Mutton, Ghugni, Rendua served along with peas-stuffed puris and a raw mango pickle. The Dehati Mutton had succulent pieces of mutton dipped in yummy gravy. A bit spicy, yes, but that didn't stop any of us from relishing it. The Ghugni and Rendua had well balanced, delicate flavours. I was too full for the pulao so had just a small spoonful of it, with the Dehati Mutton. That was a good combo! Chandana offered us fresh lime juice to accompany the food, which was off the menu. Sweet of her. For dessert, there was Malpua, which was soft, not excessively sweet or oily, and served with fresh cream. Just perfect! We all had eaten way beyond our usual limit, and the Jaljeera served in the end was a tummy saviour. It was the first time I had Bihari cuisine, and thanks to Chandana I am always going to rank it high in my cuisine preferences!
