What Is It?

Chow down on some Nepali cuisine, which will be prepared by home chef Gitika Saika on the occasion of Dashian Durga Puja with a five course meal at her home in Juhu this week.

Who Is It For?

For those looking to try something new, and meet new people while they're at it. Gitika's Dashian pop-up will be serving the Nepali cuisine of Assam, all cooked by her personally, to mark the Durga Puja celebrations. Curated by the home chef revolution in Mumbai, this is a sit down home-dining experience.

Why Should I Go?

With a host of delicious dishes, you can expect for a food inducing coma with her five course meal. The course starts with a round of sel roti - which is basically crispy fried doughnuts made from rice flour, with wo - shallow fried pancakes made from lentils, alu ko achaar, gundrak {a special chutney made from the fermented leaves and beans} and saag {a Nepalese leafy stir fry}. Along with this, you will also be served succulent khukura ko maasu {which is a Nepali chicken curry} along with dhindo - a porridge made of millet flour and corn meal. The meal ends with Khasi ko maasu, accompanied with rice and ends on a delectable sweet note of kheer made out of makhana.

You'll also be served Po Cha which is a Nepali butter tea for an authentic taste of the chai served in the hilly regions of Assam.

Anything Else?

Durga Puja is all about festivity, pandal hopping and gorging on delicious food. What better way to celebrate this festival than a five course meal of home-cooked food? We say, go on and book it already.
