Remembering Majestic India

After a long pause.......I am back. We all enjoyed a rather short trip to Chennai, India  (about 2 weeks), and the multitude of emotions, the infinite colors of its existence and the experience is one that cannot be put in writing- neither is it my goal for a food blog post. 

On the culinary level, is there another place on Earth that caters better to vegetarians? I sincerely doubt.  Every nook and corner is blessed with food stalls, and grand restaurants that tantalize your taste buds in a way to be remembered for long. 

Here are a few highlights of my love affair with food in India- a few restaurants me and my husband went to ( Taj Hotel, Sheraton Park Hotel, Barbecue Nation ....few others that the names escape now)- all offering amazing ambiance and food.- let the shots speak for themselves!

Waiting for the menu- perhaps!

A rather unusual starter- spiced baby corn...

Barbecue on each table
Barbecue on each table- and lots of marinades!
Chef cooking some delectable patties and snacks!
At Sheraton's- the aplams and deep fried chilies were a real treat!
At Sheraton's- the aplams and deep fried chilies were a real treat!- do not forget the chutneys and pickles!

The Thali- one I will not forget- and neither will my stomach!

Had almost forgotten it was March 8th- until the waiter brought this exuberant dessert- compliments of the restaurant!
