Amritsari Swaad – the Punjabi food festival at K3, JW Marriot, Aerocity

A traditional cuisine specific food festival has a special place in my heart. Especially when that cuisine is from the Punjabi heartland of our country. So when JW Marriot, Aerocity comes up with an Amritsari Swaad Tadka at their famed K3, could I have said no? Absolutely no!

Starting from perfectly smoked Kandhari Paneer Tikka, juicy and tangy mushrooms – Tandoori Khumbh, spicy Highway Tandoori Kukkad (chicken cooked in hand pounded spices) and meat de tikki (chewy mutton prepared in aromatic spices), your belly does get filled after these appetizing appetizers.


And what is a Punjabi meal if it is not relished with Makke di roti, Sarson da saag, chhole and stuffed kulche? Though the chhole could have been spicier although the texture was excellent.


And for vegetarians, there is a dearth of varied options – Paneer Taka Tak (loved it!), Kadhi Chawal, Hare moong ki daal (now that is something new!) and Matar Vadiyan di sabzi.


And for non vegetarians, the Mutton Chawal is one dish worth experimenting. The mutton pieces are succulent although the rice could be more flavourful. Do not expect Biryani, this is Amritsar special.

And the best one is always reserved for the last. Ever heard of mutton keema halwa? Yes you read it right, the keema halwa. This was warm and heavenly and tasted like moong daal halwa.


So when are you visiting next? The festival is on till 25th November.

Charming Art Brunch at JW Marriot Aerocity

Delhi winters have their own appeal and what better to enjoy the winter sun than to soak it in while relishing good food and drinks? The plethora of food festivals and brunches offer a promising experience.


JW Marriot Aerocity recently organized an Art Brunch where they were many attractions. The most prominent one was the live painting on Mercedes E class by artist Jai “Zaiu” Ranjit in the playground area. It was a treat to watch the uber luxury car getting painted in myriad colours.


The customary cake mixing ceremony also happened here and for us, it was the first time. The variety of dry fruits – raisins, cashews etc were hand mixed in liquor according to the directions by the chef.



Since it was an art brunch, the desserts were according to the theme. Edible paintings and chocolates fashioned in brush strokes were one of the many culinary attractions. A live band and an extensive food menu made up our Sunday.
