Turmeric, as a spice, is an instant representation of the Indian kitchen. More so because it has brilliant healing skills as a condiment. So when we got to know about Talli Turmeric, a restaurant in Worli's Atria Mall, serving all things turmeric, we obviously were gobsmacked. We tell you why you should pay it a visit.
This turmeric-centric restaurant serves up dishes that are nothing but an explosion of taste, flavour, aroma, and color. From smash-hit Indian delicacies to juicy charcoal-grilled tandoori kebabs, they serve it all. If you're stumped on a particular cuisine they serve, let's just say that it is a marriage between North and South India.
We started off with what's known as a GW Amrit, which is a concoction of some gin, whiskey, local masalas, lemon chunks, and Coke. It's refreshing, and sour, and is for INR 475. Our main course was all about a piping hot plate of Dum Ki Nalli for INR 495, which has lamb-shanks dipped and tossed in a lot of Indian spices. We moved on to our all-time-favourite seekh kebabs, that have won our hearts. They were succulent, juicy, and everything awesome. For INR 395, its one of the many good starters they offer.
Their signatures include gunpowder potatoes, an Andhra delicacy for INR 250, and if you're a sucker for Mangalorean cuisine, don't miss out on their Mangalorean kozhi ghee roast for INR 295. This recipe comes from the regions of Karnataka, where the chicken is roasted in ghee with spices, and served on a bed of crunchy bean sprouts.
Talli Turmeric takes cultural diversity to another level with signatures like paanch foron maach (fish cooked in authentic Bengali spices); massor tenga (an Assamese version of fish curry) and laal maas from Rajasthan. In case you're looking to fix your sweet-cravings, go for their hot jalebis with rabdi for INR 225 (this combo never ever fails.)
This fine-diner is all about great music, good vibes, awesome-sauce food, and having a great time with friends, colleagues or family. If you're planning to go there anytime soon, make sure you don't miss out on their North and South Indian thali lunches. Bon appetit!
