My experience of Relishing Finger-licking South Indian delicacies at Hyatt Regency Kathmandu

3rd May, 2019 | Tourism Mail Crew

KATHMANDU: Whenever the idea of a 'South Indian Food" popped into my mind, I always thought of the items like Idli, Dosa or Sambar until I attended South Indian Food Launch at Hyatt Regency. Kathmandu.

I am sure Chef Arun Prashad has a magic in his hand because the food was too delicious and You should have been there to see my goofy "this is heaven" face. During the launch I was already enchanted with the pleasant smell of the food and later we all sat together to taste the foods.

Attending South Indian Food Launch at Hyatt regency was a turning point of my relationship with food. When I was talking each and every bite slowly and gradually, the experience forced me out of my food comfort zone in a big way. In the South Indian Food Launch, We started off with Milagai porichatu, Long chilly stuffed with cheese busters. Taking about my personal experience, I am not a person who adores the concept of chilly but after having Milagai porichatu I can say that I would really love to try it again and again as it tasted marvelous. The another food item that I loved the most was Thalappa Kattu Chicken Biryani, traditional chicken cooked in Dhindugal style. The biryani just melted inside my mouth and made me carve for more and more! The ingredients used in the biryani made me wonder why this biryani was so much fresher and more flavorful than the other biryani's I ate before.

Each and every dish presented in the table was praise worthy. Some signature dishes like dhanedarshunti, hand-pounded spiced lamb meat balls, chappa pulusu, fish cooked in the Andhra style, traditional tamil nadu style chicken, chemeen polichathu, slow-cooked prawns in a tangy and spicy coconut sauce wrapped in banana leaf (signature dish of Kerala), chinna urali vendhiya keerai peratal, baby potatoes tossed with fenugreek, onion, tomato and curry leaves, malabar paratha, Kerala-style layered Indian flour bread and elaneer paysam (a tender coconut pudding) is something everyone must taste to give a new experience to their taste buds.

If you want relish finger-licking South Indian delicacies which are beyond Idli, Dhosa and Sambar, you can join 10 day long South Indian food festival starting from 3rd May- 12 May at The Cafe of Hyatt Regency Kathmandu.
