Aam Ki Thali @Rajdhani Bengaluru


Rajdhani needs no introduction they are masters in creating wonderful thalis for every season. Past 4 summers during mango harvest Rajdhani has been creating a mango thali. The various mango based dishes in one plate to wow their guests this thali is on high demand during summer. 

Normally Rajdhani features dishes from Rajasthan and Gujarat this year they have featured many southindian dishes on their menu. Special south-Indian dishes which were featured are Mampazham kuzhambu, Maanga pachadi, instant Maanga urugai and Maanga Chutney.

In southindia during summer i.e April to June we harvest many varieties of mangoes there are specific variety of mangoes which are meant for pickles and preserves like Avakkai, Kili mooku and so on...

Apart from the raw variety south also harvests a wide range of sweet mangoes used for desserts and many savory dishes some famous and largely used verities are Chakara kutty(sugarbaby), Malgova, Neelam, Mallika, Banganpalli, Malgova, Badami, Raaspuri and Alphonsa. 

Alphonso Mango is also largely grown towards Rantangiri located in Maharastra is considered the king of mangoes. Stepping up a notch Rajdhani wants their guest to taste mangoes from rantangiri they order alphonso mango puree from ratangiri which travels all the way from ratnagiri to bangalore via rajdhani express train. On my recent visit to rajdhani I got to know the entire operations how they procure certain produce truly fascinated me.

Mango Jelabi with Cardamom Custard
Ripe and Fleshy mango like malgova chunks are dipped in a batter and deep fried to create this dessert and served with a cardamom custard. When mango is fried the aroma and taste enhances soft centered mango and crispy shell was a winner.


Combination of two different cuisines north and southindian infused and various dishes prepared with a seasonal fruit was the highlight of this event. 

None of the dishes were oily, well balanced meal get there hungry there is a lot to taste and make sure to save some room for dessert. 

Overall after tasting...I was satisfied with the spread got to taste both the cuisines. The Aam Ki Thali will extend till June make sure you taste your share. Truly an amazing spread.
