Dalcha Dinner


During the medieval times, the Muslim rulers were intrigued by the rich regional cuisine and were inspired to incorporate the local dishes into their own cuisine. Predominantly meat eating, they modified recipes which were originally vegetarian to satiate their taste buds. Our hero dish for this popup is a fine example of reverse influence of Indian cuisine into the cuisine of the invaders. 

Dalcha, is a tangy, spicy stew of meat and lentils cooked together and was inspired by ‘sambar’ – a vegetarian dish made in every household in the region. It is served with either naan or Bagara (tampered) rice. We chose to add a salad to complete the meal. The dessert is Baked Yogurt with mixed nuts.
