Travel musings – Alchauna

We often become so engrossed in our worldly and comfortable pleasures that we forget the boons a simple life brings.
While on a digital detox retreat organized by @transformingtravels , I was able to re-connect with mother nature sans my cellphone. We were also given a tour of the organic farms and were invited to taste the fresh fruits and vegetables right from their source. Needless to say, I had never tasted peas which was so fresh and sweet.

These are the organic greenhouses that grow cabbage and spinach in the Silent Valley, Alchauna.

Thok – The House of Kakori, Lajpat Nagar New Delhi

Seldom do we get to indulge in delectable Mughlai cuisine in the comfort of our homes. And when the class apart dishes are delivered right at your doorstep, the happiness is fourfold. So when Nom Nom Desi managed to prepare a lovely assortment of appetizers in a short span of two hours and achieve on time delivery, we were pleasantly surprised to say the least:

Chicken Tikka: No compromises on this staple starter of Delhi NCR. The boneless chicken pieces were tangy, spicy, juicy to the core and adorned with freshly chopped coriander. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken Malai Tikka: Tender boneless chicken pieces drenched in a creamy sauce and grilled to perfection – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken steamed dimsums: These do look like regular road side momos but have a bite and you will gauge the difference. The exterior is neither too thick to the point of being undercooked nor too thin to the point of disintegration. The minced chicken mixture is flavourful and the whole ensemble is topped with chaat masala. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Mutton Kakori kebab roll: This actually got spoiled on the way and hence no pictures. Talking about flavours – excessive use of cinnamon in the kebab marred the taste of this item.

Overall rating: 4.5/5

Would we try this again? Yes, of course!
