Park Plaza Faridabad is celebrating ‘RANGEELO RAJASTHAN’
While I love attending food festivals, chef tables and cooking shows, there are very few occasions when my own city, Faridabad gives me a reason to mingle, indulge or blog about. This industrial city of Delhi-NCR is a sleepy one in comparison to Gurgaon and Noida. On a usual weekend, its hard to find a good place to dine in and thus we end up driving at least 20 kilometers away, somewhere in Delhi. The gastronomical evolution is yet to touch upon this part of the world and if the restaurateurs are reading this, they must do something about it. Therefore, it would be criminal to ignore some of the genuine efforts made by those who wish to contribute to the change. One such dependable name is Park Plaza, a trend-setting business hotel located in Sector 21 C of Faridabad which keeps coming up with food festivals and gives the neighborhood a reason to indulge in good food without driving too far away.
My last experience of visiting them for ‘Chandi Chowk to Verandah’ food festival is still fresh in my mind. I was quite impressed with the flavors, ambiance, decor, services and the commitment to offer a great platter. Trust me, my expectations were not very high at the first time but I had come back happy and content. Everything that I had eaten was delightfully delicious. While the flavors and fervor of Chandi Chowk was kept intact through paapri chat, chai, fruit chaat, paranthas and other delicacies, the biryanis and kebabs were amazing. This time when they are celebrating the colorful platter of Rajasthan, I am definitely expecting much more.
Rajasthani cuisine is the flavor of the season!
Rajasthani cuisine is in many ways unique from other culinary traditions of India. Over the years, due to scarcity of water, lack of green vegetables and other problems associated with the climate, Rajasthani cuisine developed a style of its own, to suit the conditions. Just like the rich arts and crafts of the state, the food is equally considered as a distinguished form of art. Each region in India is known for its own traditional dishes and specialties, and Rajasthani cuisine too has its own unique flavours. Rajasthani cooking was influenced by both the war-like lifestyles of its inhabitants and the availability of ingredients in this arid region. Food that could last for several days and could be eaten without heating was preferred.
