Finally, I visited Masala Library a place which I was planning to visit since a few months. Located near International First financial building in BKC. It's a regular lookout for corporate folks. Known for it's specially curated menu and heritage of Mr Jiggs Kalra. A gastronomic journey to the world of Indian cuisine is what I define Masala Library with. Starting from ambience to the plate arrangements everything was dapper and to the point. We tried the chefs special tasting menu which is an extensive 5-course meal. Here are some finest dishes which we loved. Snack ▪️Pea Pearl Puchka: This was the tastiest Puchka I have had in a long time. Pea puree was dropped into calcium water & pea pearls formed, were then added to our Puchka ▪️Dahi Bada: It was a deconstructed & baked vada served with yoghurt foam & presented beautifully. ▪️ Jhaal Moori Cookie: Jhaal more originating from Kolkata baked as a cookie and topped with amazing sauces and popular mustard sauce. Soup ▪️Mushroom Chai: Most amazing & innovative mushroom dish, where mushroom broth represented black tea. Dehydrated black button mushrooms & truffle powder were added to mimic tea preparation. So fancy! Starter ▪️Braised Lamb Chops: The Lambchop was marinated with maple syrup & kokum. It was finger-licking good. ▪️Patthar Ka Murg: In love with this table side appetizer. The Chef cooked thin chicken breast on coal right in front of us. It was amazing. ▪️ Caviar Malai Prawns: Being a Bengali I have tried malai curry prawns. But, Malai prawns with a touch modern caviar was a killer combination. Main Course ▪️Rajasthani Mutton Curry & Shell Kachori: The mutton was really soft & well marinated. The Kachori was different, colourful & complimented the curry well. ▪️Chicken Tempered Iddiyappam: Iddiyappam were so soft & I loved how well the dish tasted together. The chicken curry was full of flavours. Dessert ▪️Mango Halwa: The mango Halwa was delicious and the crackers added a crunch to it. The nuts & cream complemented the dish well ▪️Jalebi Caviar: Jalebi shaped in the form of Caviar served with rabdi & saffron water. It was delicious. ▪️Levitating Chocolate: This dish combined physics & molecular gastronomy in the best possible way. I loved the experience. I loved the chocolates. Must try. Not to forget, the sorbet & the explanation of each dish by the chef & the servers added to the experience.
