Let’s admit it; summers are incomplete and not using a beneficiant portion of our favorite fruit – Mango. Mangoes are harking back to our joyful childhood- with us innocently gorging on slice after slice, and the sticky mango juice trickling down our elbows and spreading throughout our lips. Just a single chew is sufficient to fire up candy recollections related to this shiny yellow fruit. If you’re a mango-lover similar to us, you might be in for a deal with at The Spice Route at The Imperial, New Delhi. Chef Veena Arora has created a particular menu referred to as ‘Mumma’s Mango Collection’ and it’s invoking nostalgia by presenting the flavours of mango an all-new avatar you would by no means fathom.

One of probably the most distinctive eating places within the metropolis by way of decor, The Spice Route exudes an aura of immense peace and religious therapeutic. The partitions are hand-painted with pure dyes, made to resemble the interiors of historical Indian temples. The restaurant has been designed to mirror the journey of spices from the Malabar coast in Kerala to international locations like Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. Thus, the particular Mango menu on the Spice Route too options curries and recipes from these areas.

We began off our meal with The Yum Mamuang from the Appetiser part of the menu. Similar to the Som Tam, this too was a signature Thai salad with grated uncooked mango, a spicy dressing and crunchy roasted peanuts. Mango-lovers would really benefit from the Pacha Mangai Rasam, a Kerala-style broth made from lentils and contemporary mango. The concept of consuming mango within the type of soup proved to be fairly the innovation. We actually loved this refreshing and lightweight broth garnished with contemporary mango chunks to resemble crotons.

The major course of the Mango menu had an array of choices from quite a lot of international locations. The Allepey Mangai Curry

was heavenly and comforting with the goodness of coconut milk and contemporary greens. The Ga Xao Hot Dieu was one other stunning preparation that we loved – a Vietnamese-style fried deal with with ripe mangoes and cashew nuts with loads of Umami.

The Pacha Mangai Katrikai Curry was the last word show-stealer. The tangy flavours of uncooked mango are completely paired with child eggplants on this Kerala-style delight garnished with curry leaves. We paired our curries with the chef-special Jasmine Rice with ripe mango cooked in coconut milk, in addition to some flaky Malabari Parottas.

In desserts, our decide was the Khao Neow Mamuang – the traditional Thai dessert comprising sticky rice served with diced ripe mangoes, drizzled with creamy coconut milk and white sesame seeds. Every chew justified the hype round this marvellous candy.
