The best way to savour a wide variety of their exclusive dishes from the cuisines of the southern Indian states is to opt for the 'Maha Virundu' Thali. In this blog I try to catalogue the Thali which was paired with exquisite french wines by the Chefs and the Someliers of the Taj.
We were welcomed with a glass of Champagne from Moet & Chandon. When your Evening starts of with such a delicious 'bubly' you know your evening is likely to be special !
The starters were then rolled out one by one..
The Veg starters were a mini idly, melagu adai, banana Dosai (served with the Chutneys) followed by the Injipuli Koshambri, which was a salad
The Wine with the starter course
We were then served Plain Rice with parippu podi.
This was followed by another Biryani called the Bhejwada Kodi Biryani, from Vijayawada, which is like the Hyderabadi Dum biryani but has green chilly paste with yoghurt.
How would I rate this meal ? I feel that this particular meal should be on the 'Bucket List' of every foodie who likes south Indian food. Wah Taj !!!!
