Indian gastronomy (and a bit of cocktails)

04 Mai 2015 | Tastes & Fragrances| 0 Comments | Postat de: ColoredIdeas

It is said that Indian food is like a classical Raga: it takes time to reach a crescendo. Or, at least, they say so. In my opinion, the Indian gastronomy emanates such a big fusion of tastes, aromas, smells, mixes, dishes, unique spices, that there is no longer a crescendo, but the impact with the senses, which is great. From the very beginning. Since the very moment you taste a baati, biryani, chapatti, dal, gajar, pani puri and other interesting and appetizing strange dishes. Many Indians are vegetarians, and the combinations of vegetables and herbs which they cook are at least, surprising. The chilly peppers are in power (you have already seen them in piles and stacks in the markets), but the bread ranges are absolutely magical, simple flat loaves of bread or with butter, filled with potatoes, cheese, coriander, milk or almonds, or sprinkled with spices.
I whet your appetite, so, off we go!!

Colored list of restaurants:
   • Zyia – gold, gold, gold, splendor in gold!! With a gorgeous design, wonderful ocean views and an interpreted Indian cuisine menu, of Michelin stars, chef Vineet Bhatia invites you to a seafood chatka, a dilli chat (where you experience many tastes at once, hot, sweet, sour,and salty), a moti biryani, a grilled lobster with ginger and chilly, or a delice with caramelized nuts and chocolate…And you feel as if you were in paradise!
