From 2 to 16 March 2023, Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel has put together a multi-course vegetarian and non-vegetarian menu to celebrate Holi. The menu is inspired by India's Festival of Colours so one can expect a colourful menu showcasing plenty of flavours.
The celebratory experience starts with a welcome drink in a form of a cold concoction of almond, fennel seed, black peppercorn and rose petals.
Bharwa Puri Chaat, tandoori chicken chaat paired with a series of sweet, sour, and spicy flavours.
Gulabi Macchi Tikka, grilled tandoori black cod, served with yogurt and sweet rose petals. Adoring this tasty mess - delicious! Both a treat visually and taste wise too.
I love the presentation of food in tiffin carriers, and this has to be Tiffin Room's signature.
Look at this mouthwatering spread.
Gucchi Pulao a delicacy made using long-grain basmati rice, this was fluffy and light and very flavourful too. I'd eat it on its own, without any accompaniment.
Murgh Badami Korma, boneless chicken leg, prepared with fresh Indian spices. I enjoyed this tremendously, the spices and tender chicken - based on outlook I wasn't expecting it to taste so good!
Lobster Coconut Masala, deep-fried lobster infused with aromatic spices in a coconut based curry. Creamy and I thought the curry would over shadow the lobster, it was the opposite with the curry accentuating.
Sarson Wala Gosht, a staple North-Indian dish made with tender lambchop, served in a mustard and spinach paste, and I'd have mistaken this for Palak Paneer with eyes closed. The wonderfully tender lamb chops made me head for thirds.
Both menus are served alongside Butter Naan and Laccha Parantha with a selection of colourful chutneys and achar. This carb battle is always lost in Indian cuisine, and I do not bother putting up a fight either. Embrace them carbs!
For the perfect sweet ending, I'd expect no less of a selection of popular Indian sweets. Gujia, a deep fried pastry filled with with coconut and dried fruits.
Moong Dal Halwa, a delicious bright yellow lentil pudding that is a popular confection enjoyed during Holi was also served. An interesting first-time experience for me, would love to have this again!
Mithe Samose, a sugary rendition of the classic street snack to round things all up. A refined version I've been told, I thought it went well with the puff pastry.
A limited selection of the regular Tiffin Room ala carte menu will be available as well during this promotional period.
