I was invited for this blogger event to experience the taste of Purani Delhi. As we speak about Old Delhi, the place that comes to our mind is Chandani Chowk which is considered the hub of authentic food. This was my first time in Zodiac and must say that the ambience is very nice with zodiac signs on the walls.
As we are all aware that ITC hotels are known for its quality food, in continuation of this legacy they have brought the taste of Purani Delhi right here in Gurgaon. Bringing the authentic taste to the place was made possible by Chef Inder Dev who has done an intensive research of the food items before putting it on the menu. We started with lassi along with kalmi bada, bean mathri and pyaaz bhujia which were nicely cooked.
More snacks were served such as bhalla papri, chhole bhature and gol gappay. Among these my favourite was bhalla papri which had a tangy taste.
We started the main course with non-veg food like Goli kabab and dora kabab. Both of them tasted out of this world! I had also tasted biryani with chicken korma and chengezi chicken. I am a die hard non-vegetarian so could not experience much of the veg course. However as per others bloggers, veg items were equally awesome. Out of the entire main course I liked Matka Ghost, Goli Kabab, Dora Kabab and Biryani. All the dishes were cooked in the same way as you will find in Purani Delhi and the best part is after a long time I have tasted authentic Biryani.
After eating all the mouth-watering dishes there was very less scope of sweets. Yet, I believe every Indian will agree with me that we all have a secret space in our stomach which opens up when we see desert. We were served with Rabri Jalebi, Rasgulla and Phirni. The Jalebi was good and tasted great when mixed with Rabri. The Rasgulla was also good and the Phirni was excellent with less sweet content.
Overall below are my ratings.
This is a must visit place and do not miss the food festival “Purani Dilli ki Galliyan” at Zodiac,
