Savour the different avatars of the popular food roll at the Wrap and Roll festival on at Hotel Trident
It is a wacky combination of flavours from around India. From the North Indian, to the Nawabi, to the Malabari, the Bengali and even the thrilling flavours of India’s favourite street food.
Head to Hotel Trident, for it is unwrapping a special surprise for foodies this month.
Selection of styles
The ‘Wrap and Roll’ festival brings a classy selection of styles. You could create the wrap of your choice with the ‘wrap-a-kebab’ on the menu! It could be a Victorian Calcutta style chicken tikka wrap with ‘kasundi’ or the creamy, soft murgh malai kebab wrapped in a roomali roti. Or indulge in the typical Delhi style spicy roll with double egg or replace it by lamb gilafi seekh.
If it is seafood that gets you going, try the rustic fishy flavours of the Amritsari fried fish roll with carom seeds, complemented with crisp spinach and onion pakoda rolled with sumptuous chutney and spiced in a missi roti.
Chef Eeshan Kashyap says he has tried to use various marinades with different selections of Indian breads like missi roti, Malabar paratha, home made ajwain paratha or roomali roti. “The idea was to create something which everyone loves and is a complete meal. And when it is complemented with a lassi or a bottle of beer, it certainly would take you on a nostalgic trip,” he says.
The spicy beef pepper fry wrap in a Kerala paratha is the ultimate culinary dream come-true for fans of Malabari cuisine. Or the ‘Malabar taramutta appam wrap’ is a contemporary twist of the traditional appam—appams poached with country duck eggs and folded with spicy ginger shrimp pickle.
Other attractions on the menu are grilled tortillas and Mexican burritos. The crisp corn chicken grilled tortilla with jalapenos and English cheddar are enough to entice you to the pool side. The ever-so-popular Shawarma is available, too. If none of this packs enough punch for you, go for the ‘London mix grill wrap’. A heavy meal by itself with fillet mignon, grilled chicken sausages, streaky bacon rashers, thyme and garlic crusted chicken breast, sage and pork sausages and English mustard along with French fries with a big sip of beer!
Vegetarians can try the Mexican chimichangas. The hot enchilada chilli sauce with paprika and re-fried kidney beans makes the roll filling. It is rolled along with spicy Mexican fried rice, avocados and sour cream. The tandoori paneer pudina tikka with roomali roti or the tortilla wrapped with grilled vegetables and horse radish sauce is another option. Or how about a desi ‘Koon ulli thyeel wrap’? A must try mushroom dish with a rich infusion of Kerala spices. The wraps are priced at Rs. 450 to Rs. 600. The festival is on through July.
