Stop for a second and imagine India without the contribution of the Mughals. Apart from dotting the country with architectural marvels such as Taj Mahal, they also had a strong influence on our cuisine. What we call Indian food today is heavily influenced by Mughlai food. Recipes that they brought with them and adapted using local ingredients, spices and craft have been kept alive over the years. The food is rich, aromatic and full of flavour.
To offer Vizagites the best of Mughlai cuisine, Hotel Green Park is organising a Mughlai Food Festival at its Tulips restaurant.
There will be a range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies to choose from. To start things off snacks like tandoori malai jhinga kesari, machi chutney kebab, laziz makhmali murg, shahi tirangi paneer tikka and bhawra mushroom are on offer.
