K19 to cater Jain Friendly Food
For a Jain, eating outside is sometimes a challenge, since you can never be sure of what exactly has gone into your food. Just be sure to inform them about your preferences and they’ll curate a delicious menu and will ensure that only Jain suitable dishes reach to your table.
Jain friendly food that was served:
Tomato Shorba & Veg Sweet-Corn Soup
Tomato Soup was made of fresh tomatoes which was tangy in taste.
Veg Sweet corn soup was prepared with carrots and beans which was of right consistency which allowed the taste buds to enjoy the flavors.
Clay Oven Roasted Tangy Pineapple Sticks
This Pineapple salad can also be eaten as an appetizer, too. I loved this dish.
It was tangy with a tinge of hot spices, yet a bit sweet. Flavoring of the dish was up to the mark and worth a try.
Spiral Cheese Baby-corn
It was well crisp and tasted fine with the dips served along. Both the dips added different zing to the dish.
Hare Mattar Ki Tikki
Tikki was great to eat, wasn’t much crunchy yet it was giving all the needed tinge with the dhaniya chutney.
Spinach and cheese rolls
who can resist these dainty luscious rolls? Indeed Spinach and Ricotta are great combination. Plus the way it melts in mouth despite the outer side being crunchy. I loved it.
Stuffed Green Chili Fritters
Chili Fritters had stuffing’s of marinated cottage cheese and tinge of hot spices. Try it with mustard chutney; it gives tang-so taste.
For Main Course:
- Laccha Parantha – Was served hot and ghee was well spread.
- Malai Kofta – Pretty soft and flavorful
- Pindi Chana – The added pomegranate earned the brownie points. It was great.
- Gatte Ki subzi – The gatte were soft and the gravy was just right to taste.
- Curry Pakodi – Pakodi’s were well dipped and curry was sour and sweet to taste.
- Kurkuri Bhindi – Best to have with rice and dal.
Italian dessert consisting of layers of sponge cake soaked in coffee and cream with powdered chocolate and mascarpone cheese.
The best dessert I ever had! Basbousa is a popular sweet cake made of semolina or farina soaked in syrup. The syrup may also optionally contain orange flower water or rose water.
An apple pie is a fruit pie (or tart) in which the principal filling ingredient is apples.
