Indian Food Festival
Aug 15, 2012

The exotic tastes of India will come alive at the Café Ilang-Ilang of Manila Hotel on August 17 to August 30, 2012 as Indian Head Chef Kiran Singh retraces his roots and re-creates the authentic dishes of his country. Chef Singh, together with Chef Nazruel Sekh, will cast his magic spell as he showcases the diversity of India’s culinary tradition.

The secret in creating a truly wonderful Indian cuisine is the proper use of the classic mix of spices with the essential blend of cumin, chili pepper, cloves, and coriander, says Chef Singh. Guests will be treated to signature dishes like lamb roganjosh, murgh makhani (butter chicken), tandoori gulanar (spicy grilled prawn), chicken tikka masala (roasted chicken in spicy sauce), dal makhani (creamy black lentils), and aloo jeera dry (cumin flavored potatoes). Traditional Indian desserts are also available including gulab jamun and rasgula, both made from milk and sugar syrup. A different set of dishes will be served for lunch and dinner.

On the opening day, diners will be treated with traditional Indian music by sitar players. Held in partnership with Philippine Airlines and Shroff Travels, the Indian Festival at Café Ilang-Ilang will give diners a chance to win a holiday getaway for two to India.
