Indian food is by far my favorite food, not because I’m an Indian, but because of it’s versatility. Every region has their own speciality …. like Rajisthani cuisine was influenced by both the war-like lifestyles of its inhabitants & the availability of ingredients in this arid region. Food that could last for several days & could be eaten without heating was preferred. It is also known for its snacks like Bujiya or kachori to name a few.
Coming back to my visit to Olive Roots in Al Nahda…… . they have got two sections inside the restaurant …. one which serves the traditional Rajisthani Thali & the other section is for ala carte menu, where they serve the Non veg items too. The seatings are quite sufficient for a small gathering or some party too. They also serve special breakfast ….You should definitely try that….. it costs just AED 10.
I went there to try their Rajasthani Thali, which consists of almost 20 to 25 items. The servers wore their traditional Rajisthani dress which looks very interesting & they will make you feel like a VIP guest by their hospitality.
The items served were as below,
To start with Special Rajasthani Daal Baati & Churma…. I loved it & asked them to serve me again.
Then they serve us Dahi vada, Muthiya & Batata vada….. everything was fresh & hot … which enhances its flavors even more.
Then comes the Rajasthani dal & Kadhi….. along with Jodhpur gatta, Aloo lasuniya, Palak chatpata & Paneer kadai …,
Their traditional Butter milk was also served.
To accomplish the curries … choices were Phulka, Puri & Puran poli…. I literally have all of them.
How can a Rajisthani Thali be completed without their famous Khichdi… served with loads of ghee on it … yummmm
For the desserts there was Kheer & moong daal halwa …
I also ordered for lemon mint drink …it was the best lemon mint I had … with more of mint & less sugar .. perfect lemon.
& can you believe…. all these were priced at AED 30… it’s really way more worth it.
Thanks a lot Hyperlink media & team Olive Roots for hosting us. It was really our pleasure & we can’t wait to visit it again.
