Twigly, Munirka, New Delhi

Finally, I got an opportunity to taste the jaw drawing delicacies from Twigly which has captured the palates of many NCR dwellers. And after a long time, I was pleasantly surprised to give a 5/5 rating to every dish that I tasted from a delivery joint.

Beirut Chicken Sandwich: Firm loaves of multi grain breads enclosing shredded chicken, chopped onions, tomatoes and beetroot drenched in a creamy white sauce with the prominent flavour of black pepper. The chicken pieces are lusciously mellow and the freshness of the ensemble can give you a major food coma. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Twigly Signature grilled Cajun Chicken: I expected the grilled chicken pieces to be tangy and spicy but nonetheless, their juiciness took my heart away. Moreover, the Cajun herbs had penetrated to the insides of the chicken pieces.  These succulent babies, served with a creamy caper based sauce having a runny texture and freshly baked pita bread is a wholesome meal in itself. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Veg chlorophyll pesto fista: It is tricky to prepare pesto sauce because the characteristic bitterness of the pesto sauce can mar the dish. But the sauce in this dish was perfectly balanced with the pasta cooked al-dante and fresh crunchy vegetables serving as the icing on the cake. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Unexpected

Seldom I was looking for you
And seldom did I think about you
Never knew how you came to rest
In my erratic thoughts
And random dreams

Our rude conversations
Had their own charm
And now these short sugar coated talks
Make my day

You, with all your flaws
Somehow hold your sway
Over this silly little girl inside me.
How did I begin loving
To laugh at your antics?

My wild, untamed soul
Hidden beneath layers of silence
And strata of poise
Craved your inner tranquility
Shrouded by your superficial savagery

No no, it’s not love
For I have loved before
This emptiness your absence will bring
Is just working it’s sorcery on me

You know it is you
Take me away with you
Forever and ever

Travel musings – Lakshwadweep

The dooming sun will set
The clouds will hide the blazing sun
The ships will return to the jetty
The waves will recede
The crabs will move out of their sand holes
This rustic wooden chair will wear out
And I shall carry this souvenir of a scenery forever in my heart.

Hauz Khas Social, Hauz khas Village, New Delhi

So when Social Offline, one of my favourite restaurant chains in the Delhi NCR launches their special Summer Menu, could I keep my hands and palate from relishing their well thought dishes? An absolute no!

Unkiller/ Abra Kebab-ra veg kebab platter: Highly unlikely for me to go for a full blown vegetarian kebab platter? Yes, well, I have outgrown my choice for the meaty dishes and a once in a while platter “in which no animals were harmed” does sound appetizing. The mellow paneer tikka drenched in pickle like spices did tantalize the taste buds but could have been grilled more. The Achaari soya chaap was amazingly grilled and had a thin crust with a tender chewy interior. The tandoori momos were good and had a hearty filling of finely chopped mushrooms, beans, onion, broccoli, carrots, cabbage and baby corn. The spicy Malai mushroom was grilled well and was melt in the mouth with the lovely cream adorning it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Celebrity Bhelpuri: Let us move over from our usual bhelpuri prepared with puffed rice to the one fashioned with puffed Amaranth, quinoa crisps, flaxseeds, granola, pomegranate, peanuts, freshly cut kiwi and oranges. The crunchy texture of the ensemble coupled with the sweet and peppery flavours bursting on your palate does transform you into heaven. Moreover, it is healthy too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Shiitake and mushroom pizza: Special mention – The chef specifically doubled the quantity of mushrooms when he came to know about my love for the chewy fungi. The pizza was what an ideal pizza should be like – thin crust with no charred remains, optimum quantity of cheese that stretches but is not overwhelming, flavourful tomato sauce topping and well grilled shiitake and button mushrooms. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Anda mutton seekh paratha: Why did they serve me this? Because I can not get over the food coma experienced while gorging on this lovely dish. The firm yet tender and heavily spiced mutton seekh kebabs were paired with the bland and flaky Malabar paratha which had a thim omelette on the other side. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_143938-01

Summer fruit pavlova: Finally someone here knows how to dish out a pavlova which does not taste like our humble “batasha”! The crispy and airy pavlova was baked to perfection with slightly caramelized edges and topped with fresh cream and fruits – a layered dessert exuding the summery charm. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_151847-01

Peanut butter fondant with vanilla ice cream: Well, well, yours truly finished this combination on her own with no qualms at all! How could I stop myself from feasting upon the moderately sweet, warm, melt in the mouth chocolate fondant topped with melted peanut butter and peanuts? And when I got slightly exhausted from the warm sweet and salty ensemble, I gorged upon the cool and creamy vanilla ice cream. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Colours of life – Part II

When the browns of your eyes
Meet the chocolates of mine
The reds of my heart
Turn an unusual shade

So come here, come to me
And see your colours on my demeanor

Your greens have enveloped me
And so have the fawns
You have stolen my jet blacks
And paired them with your crimsons

So come here, stay with me
And let these colours linger on me

You are enveloped in my blues
And snatched away my scarlets
The way you took my heart
And are slowly seranading my soul

So come here, live with me
And throw these colours into my world
My life

Your colours have mesmerized me
But why my colours have engulfed you
Have you fallen for me?
The way I secretly fell for you…

So come here, marry me
And let our colours mingle
Fashioning a palette unseen
Unspoken
But real……

The Pepper Kitchen, Malviya Nagar, New Delhi

Vegetable toasties: Crunchy toasties slathered with a very fine layer of cheese and chopped vegetables does entice you. The extra salt mars the dish, however. RECOMMENDED.

Cheese baked potatoes: A very simple dish fashioned into a delight! The warm running cheese baked in the mushy potatoes with skins does capture your heart. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Alfredo pasta: The penne was cooked al dante but the quantity of white sauce could have been better – it was sticking to the pasta and not in a very good way. RECOMMENDED.

Makhani chicken pizza: Another pizza on a wheat base and the effort is highly appreciated. The chicken chunks are flavourful but pizza base could have had a more appetizing and creamier version of the sauce.
