Eating Out ~ Flavours of Malaysia, Okra, Marriott Hyderabad

I am partial to Asian food, not that I have eaten it all, also since I am nothing but honest, maybe not the most authentic either. On the whole I do feel that Asian food, especially east Asian, is multi layered. There are so many flavours and ingredients, each one treated differently in each of … Continue reading Eating Out ~ Flavours of Malaysia, Okra, Marriott Hyderabad

Whole Wheat Carrot Cake with Garam Masala

PS: This post has been in the writing since Easter.........Yes it has taken me that long! And it isn't even a spectacular post! The long weekend of Easter was spent mostly in sloth.

Hosted by Bidri at the Marriott in Hyderabad, curated by home chef Sherry Malhotra, the festival … Continue reading Eating Out ~ The Himalayan Pop-up, Bidri, Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre

Eating Out ~New Set Menu, Bidri, Hyderabad Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre

Last week on a Friday, I found my way back to Bidri at the Hyderabad Marriott. Living on the other end of town, I am always a little lazy to make the trek across town. By the time I reach my destination, I am usually dizzy and cranky (not sure which is the chicken and … Continue reading Eating Out ~New Set Menu, Bidri, Hyderabad Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre
