Flavours of the Nation at Aloft

The wow factor is always high at Nook, the fine dining venue at Aloft Cessna Business Park, Bangalore. This month, Nook is celebrating the 'Flavours of the Nation' by offering a delectable assortment of Biryanis and Curries from across India. The festival will continue till the 25th of November. Here's a photo tour of the splurge night...



My journey of flavors start with baby potatoes with mustard mayo, sev puri chaat and Rajma Corn salad. All of them served in small helpings to whet the appetite for the incredible fare ahead...


Papdi Chaat...


Raspberry, Lychee and sprite infused cocktail...


Dahi Bhalla, lentil dumplings dunked in yogurt...


A variety of impeccable starters from around India are served.
Dahi ke kabab is a north Indian appetizer made from hung curd...


Tandoori Prawns...I like prawns in any form...


Fish Podimas is a South Indian scrambled fish dish. The right spices and the shredded coconut makes this absolutely exquisite...


The Podimas was quite inventively served in banana flower petals...


Kalmi Kabab...


Vegetable Seekh kabab...


Keema Kaleji originated from the Hyderabad region and further evolved in Mumbai streets. Minced lamb and chicken liver is combined in exotic spices and served with soft bread roll called pav.


Melt in the mouth Rajma Galouti kababs...


This is similar to the good old fish and chips...


Vazhakka Meen Varuval comes from the Chettinad cuisine of south India. Raw banana fried in fish masala...


The options for the main course made my head spin. A wide variety of Biryanis from around India. Biryani is a mixed rice dish which is very popular throughout the Indian sub-continent. Different regions of India have perfected the Biryani recipe in their own unique cooking styles... 


Dindigul Vegetable Biryani from Tamil Nadu...


Gatte Ka Pulao from Rajasthan...


Hyderabadi Kachche gosht ki Biryani...



Alapuzha vegetable biryani from Kerala...


My favorite Biryani of the day was the Scheherazade biryani, an Iranian style fish biryani perfected in Pakistan...





Ambur Chicken Biryani from south India...


Out of the curries, a special mention goes to Methi, Palak, Papad ki Subzi. This curry is a delectable combination of Fenugreek leaves, Spinach, lentil crisps and Indian spices...


Guddu Ka Do Pyaza is a tasty lamb meat curry...


Tandoori Roti and Kulcha with the right amount of char...


You might need two stomachs to savor the outrageous fare that actually tastes exciting. The festival continues till the 25th of this month. Have anything and you will love it all from start to finish.
