Come summer and we dread the sky rocketing temperatures, but there’s always a silver lining in the form of the most beloved fruit of Indian sub- continent, the arrival of which coincides with summer. It brings zest, colour, deliciousness and a host of mango- infused desserts, too.
UAE’s one of the most coveted Indian restaurants, India Palace has launched the Mangolicious festival to celebrate the goodness of this king of fruits and each one is so sumptuous that we just can’t have enough of them.
I was at India Palace this time to savour the summery delights of India’s most wanted fruit. All I can say, it delights from the word go! India palace has come up with unique mango desserts like –
• Mango Falooda
A royal indulgence of traditional Indian milk-based dessert with a delectable mix of mango, rabri, kulfi & nuts
• Fresh Mango Lassi
Traditional mango lassi churned with fresh alphonso mango garnished with sliced mango
• Mango Juice
A pulpy delicacy made from the extraction of fresh mango
• Mango Lemonade
Original lemonade with refreshing mango flavor that beats the thirst
• Mango Ka Muzzafar
Fresh chunks of mango blended with yogurt; topped with cashew nuts and pistachios
Soft mango-flavored cheese dumplings, dipped in cold sweetened milk, topped with mango and pistachios
Prices of these specially curated summer special mango dishes start at AED 20. The new Mango Licious menu is available across all 12 outlets in the UAE in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah
The fact that I keep visiting India Palace Restaurant time and again is a yardstick of its great food taste and unbeatable hospitality. This heritage Indian restaurant with its traditional interiors has been delivering delectable North Indian and Mughlai food since 1997.
By the way, not just the mango desserts, but overall food at India palace tastes sumptuously great. We ordered Kebab platter as starter, Rajasthani Kadhi, Alu Gobhi and Makhani Kofta for mains along with an assortment of Naans and Rotis- all of them, yummy and flavourful. The veggie dum biryani was a chartbuster and needless to say, a tough competition to the best biryanis in town.
The food was served by Dakshina and Arpan- both very hospitable, prompt and attentive to our preferences. Their service made our lunchtime pleasing and memorable. To sum up, I would say, India Palace is one of the top most places to savour North Indian & Mughlai food with flawless service and don’t miss out on their awesome, ongoing mangolicious festival.
