Lost recipes found in Gurgaon@ magadhandawadh

Food matters to us, infact it matters a lots.

All of us have some FOOD MEMORIES. This probably ignites the senses or reminds us of our childhood and gives us a complete satisfaction and happiness.

Food is an indicator of cultural identity. But even the strongest culinary traditions get diluted with time, due to changes in our life style, lack of ingredients & developments. More over, now a days we are having options from different part of the world, but there are still some recipes that always have a special place in our heart. Unfortunately, we cannot enjoy them as the person who used to make these delicacies are not with us or the ingredients are not available or we don’t have time to cook. The point is, we all have recipes we loved. How serendipitous to rediscover them here in the best restaurant in gurgaon.

Gurgaon. Mr. Vijay Gautam and Mrs Nishi Singh(sibling) a foodie, who have brought some lost recipes here in Gurgaon.

Mr. Gautam has always relished the Fish Fry (particulaty Tengra), Tissi Paratha, Machli Chokha, Khati doodh wali chai, itchna fry, bachka, ratoba, besan ki subzi, sarson wali machli, ole ki subzi, rasia, makhane wali kheer. But now when he is staying away from his parents & grand parents eating these delicacies is like a dream come true. He tried to find out his favorite delicacies in various restaurants in Gurgaon and Delhi. But he could never get any one of these delicacies.

I believe this is not just his story, most of us crave for our favorite dishes.
