This place truly lives up to its name ” Masala House” – Home of spices. Located near the Bird sanctuary ( Delhi Zoo), in Sunder Nagar market. Undoubtedly, just couple of spots in Delhi which fill in as perfect nourishment as this one brings to the table!!! Each dish is curated through a procedure that is oversimplified yet makes it more delightful. So whether you are an entirely vegan or a non-veggie lover you will undoubtedly make the most of your sense of taste in an alternate way by and large!
There was summer special cocktail/mocktail menu was going on and tried some drinks which were more on the sweeter side with extra ginger in it which I got replaced afterwards with less sweet and no ginger.
Started with the famous Dahi Ke Kebab ( have heard about them a lot) – The kebab was flash fried with a crispy coating of breadcrumbs ( panko crumbs), tasted heavenly. They were flavoursome with a rich taste of curd and light masala in it, which was perfectly going with the curd.
Asparagus Paddu – This is a South Indian dish made of rice and generally filled with veggies, the veggies were replaced with fermented asparagus and this combo blown me apart.
Khumb Luqmi – A dish made up of mushroom and covered with filo pastry sheet and baked in open. The dish was perfect but the serving was very less as compared to the price. Must try dish for mushroom lovers, though I didn’t get much taste of mushroom in it.
Avocado Bhel – A simple Bhel with Avocado in it is what describes the best. It consisted of all the ingredients for a proper Bhel should have with extra Avocado which was going well with the chaat. A healthy touch to the street side Bhel.
Dum ki Daal – which was basically our normal Dal Makhani, not much rich and average in taste. The Dal was rich in taste and was appetizing.
Amritsari Wadi Tarkari – Full marks for the presentation – and equally good in taste had lotus chunks in it and the curry was of a pumpkin.
Our gastronomical journey came to an end with the two desserts – Gajar Halwa Kunafa & Baked yoghurt. Both of them were again a masterpiece of their own sorts! The usual Gajar Halwa was rolled inside a light crusted vermicelli and baked served along with pistachios and icing sugar!!! The crispiness of the top made the gajarela, even more, tastier than the usual!!!
I loved the Starters more than the main course. The important part is the presentation of each dish which was class apart and tempts you to eat more, but on the other hand, I found the serving was less but considering the place is upscale one can neglect these things. Though truly welcome the delight of having such a decent time at the eatery and anticipate spend exceptional family events here in future as well!!!
