Bold and bright café specials

Enjoy a first-class duo of seasonal specials in our cafés this year. Chef’s special dish, Dahi Batata Puri is as well-loved in Bombay as Diwali itself. Tangy and moreish puris filled with batata (potatoes), dahi (fresh yoghurt), liberal mint chutney and tamarind drizzle are rubied with pomegranates – it is a constant pleasure. And to drink, Thandai (cooling), a refreshing tall drink of almonds, fennel, black pepper, cardamom and milk. Blended with ice and strewn with rose petals. 

Both are available from 17th - 30th October at all cafés, giving ample time to devour on many occasions!
