Lohri farzified @ cyber hub,Farzi Cafe !!

Lohri is one of the most commonly celebrated festival in India and way of spreading joy.India being known for its diverse culture & traditions, here no celebration is complete without good food & dance 😊

This year we planned to celebrate lohri festival with family & friends at Farzi Café (cyber hub) who especially launched lohri menu for people to come and enjoy. To start with they have even scripted the menu card with lohri pics. Lohri is incomplete without bhangra dance on beats of dhol & relish scrumptious meals like we had here today.  So here is a short review about the same.We kicked off our day with delicious dishes like :

Bhuttia aur palak ke tinke

Presentation of the dish is an imp part which makes it more appealing. This worked out best for this dish as you can see in pics. It was curated well in form of lohri sticks. Skewers of sweet corn & spinach rolled on bamboo sticks. Prepared fresh make it feel smooth and soft when in mouth. Plated well with aloo chips that symbolized fire. Sauce was sprinkled well on sticks to symbolize flames and went well with the taste. It was prepared from bell peppers. Dish was amazingly delicious and mouth watering. We repeated the order.

Matka chholley with Lucchi puff

This was next dish served,& increased our hunger more as this is what Punjabi’s crave for. Pindi cholle with maida puri famous as Luchi. Cholle were well prepared with perfect blend of spices. Luchi on other hand was not at all oily adding to the beauty of festival food. Served with chilli pickle and potato fried worked as sidings. Loved this dish as it was toooo delicious.

Bathua Sarso da saag, Makai | Mooli Pide

Again Punjabi’s have to eat this traditional dish of ours to complete the Lohri rituals. Sarso da saag with makki roti is a combination of regional leafy greens cooked with ghee, jaggery & chickpeas flour. Presented in form of a ship, garnished with butter, gurr & raddish. It was a must try dish which can only be enjoyed eating with hand.

Rewari Gajjak Peanut Butter icecrea, caramel popcorns

Sweets are integral part of our punjabi’s festival. Here we had Peanut butter icecream ,which was crunchy from inside served chilled with caramel popcorns and rewari gajjak sidings. Neither too sweet neither less. Perfect blend to end your day with amazing after taste.

It was a great lohri celebration and will look forward to visit this place again!!
