Here’s some news for people working or living in Lower Parel area. The Barking Deer Brewpub has come up with a great offer for the next few weeks. Chef Parag and I tasted some of their hottest selling dishes and paired it with one beer. This combination of one main dish and one beer will be available at a discounted price at TBD for one week only. So make the most of it and stop by for lunch or dinner to avail this offer. Trust me, the food is amazing!
This week you will get to try…
Three Cheese Madras Chilli Risotto and Hoegaarden
The food: This dish is wholesome and really flavourful. The highlight is not the three cheeses (Parmesan, cheddar and ricotta) used but little Madras chillies that act as flavour bombs. The chilli imparts the flavour of chilli without the heat which is great for people who can’t handle too much spice. But if you’re like me, then you can just squeeze the tiny chillies to release the seeds and oils to mix with your risotto. Risotto is a little tricky to make and I insist on making it al dente. But to suit the Indian palate, Chef Parag said they have to cook it completely. I suggest you eat it al dente and let the chef prepare it the way it is supposed to be prepared.
The beer: Hoegaarden is a beer which is brewed with coriander and orange peel. It is an unfiltered beer which makes it slightly cloudy. To enhance the citrusy flavour in the beer, it is always served in a hexagonal glass with a slice of orange.
Match made in heaven: Pairing this Belgian beer with the Three Cheese and Madras Chilli Risotto is absolutely perfect because of how the flavours complement each other. The coriander flavour in the risotto and the coriander hits in the beer go hand in hand. Also, Hoegaarden is a light beer which helps balance off the rich risotto. So this pairing definitely works.
How much: Rs.799 plus taxes
Offer valid until: 11th August, 2013
