Darjeeling Food Festival at Four Points Sheraton, Vashi

India is a country rich in culture, heritage, and food. Every state has its own cuisine with unique flavors. Trying, understanding, learning, and experimenting with various cuisine is something that I am passionate about and enhances my knowledge too. So yesterday I had a fantastic experience trying Darjeeling cuisine curated by the Chef Mirage at Four Points Sheraton at Vashi.

Basically, Darjeeling cuisine has a reflection of Tibetan, Chinese, and Bengali cuisine. Unlike other cuisines of India, you will not find a lot of spices and oil in their food. Their dishes are simple, flavourful, and cooked with very little oil. The preparation, usage of spices and vegetables slightly differ and that is what makes Darjeeling Cusine a unique one.
Vegetarian Dishes that we tried:
1. Veg Momos with red chutney, the vegetable stuffing was so delicious and the momos were steamed to perfection. The chutney served was tangy, spicy and just had a perfect balance of flavors that paired well with momos.
