Novotel Hyderabad Airport’s Square restaurant hosts a food festival titled ‘Best of the West’, which showcases the rich and diverse cuisines from the western states of India. Over the years, these regions have exchanged flavours and evolved in their recipes and yet have remained so distinctively unique.

The promotion is on during dinner buffet where the mélange of flavours – the spiciness of Maharashtrian food; the richness of Rajasthani dishes and the goodness of Gujarati delicacies make it a gastronomical treat.

Before you begin your meal the traditional welcome drinks like thandai (saffron flavoured milk with dry nuts) or chaach (spiced yoghurt based cooler) are highly recommended.

The starters on the menu include – Fish Koliwada (Deep fried marinated fish), this Maharashtrian dish has a tangy taste, is well marinated and on the crispier side; Hariyali Murgh Tikka (chicken marinated with mint & coriander and cooked in clay oven) just melts in the mouth and Handvo, as the name suggests is a Gujarati dish which is a spiced baked cake made of rice and lentil. The buffet also has live counters which serve pav bhaji, kheema pav and vegetable thepla rolls.

The earthy khichdi and kadi on the mains is as Western Indian as it can get. The Memoni mutton biryani, which is prepared with lamb, a little food colouring, potatoes and tomatoes tantalises your palate for more. The potato in the dish is a whole new biryani experience for Hyderabadis.

The other must tries on the buffet are Ratnagiri fish curry and Paneer Kolhapuri. The Ratnagiri fish curry is a Maharashtrian styled fish curry flavoured with kokum and Paneer Kolhapuri is a spicy preparation of cottage cheese with coconut and chilli paste..
