Kolkata, May 8 IBNS | 2 years ago

Designer Rohit Bal's uber-chic eatery Veda Restaurant unveiled Nouvelle Menu from the Royal Kitchens of India, a specially designed menu for the food connoisseurs of Kolkata, on Tuesday.

The menu, which boasts an extensive range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes, was launched by Veda Franchise owner Mohit Sancheti and actress Mimi Chakraborty.

The restaurant also had its signature recipe book launched, that includes all of its popular dishes.

"The city of Kolkata has witnessed a change in the taste buds of the foodies and has become a melting pot of various cultures as far as cuisine is concerned. Keeping the same in mind, the menu comes with a completely different look and feel with some of Veda's specialities like Gilafi Seekh Kabab, Bhatinda Murg, Paneer Harippa, Rawalpindi Chole and other such delicacies," said an official spokesperson.

"We are keeping the core recipe intact, only adding a twist to it. The recipes that our customers will find in this menu, have undergone a trail-and-error period of about a year," said Chef Debasish Saha.

He said, "You will find dishes like 'Khattey Aloo', which is potatoes boiled in cream and served with a pomegranate reduction, and desserts like the Veda brownies, which is made from curd cheese unlike the traditional brownies."

"Veda's food is rich, and people love it. For the calorie conscious, I suggest they hit the gym after a sumptuous meal at Veda," he quipped.

The recipe book includes favourites like Lamb Galouti, Kurkure Bhindi, Paneer Kaliyan, Chutney Pulao, Fig and Honey Kulfi, and many more.
