There is Cape Comorin in the southernmost part of India in Kanyakumari. Then there is Comorin, a gastropub, in up north, Gurgaon, NCR. A novel concept of Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent fame, Comorin has successfully brought the rustic flavours of down south to the north and on the way, it picked up few flavours and beautifully amalgamated those to create wonders for your palate.
Then came in the much awaited Mutton Puttu Biryani. Had altogether a different look than a Biryani. My colleague, a vegetarian, explained me that Puttu is a breakfast staple in Southern India, particularly Kerala. Steamed cylinders of Rice Flour with Grated Coconut, and not rice grains, serve as the main ingredient and the dish has sweet or savory fillings of you choice. Ours had Mutton.
So, it was a variety of Poha and Jalebi, Sindhi Dal Pakwaan, Gujarati Fafda and Kadhi besides others in breakfast. A lunch of Rajasthani Thali or an ala carte order of Lehsuni Palak and Khichri. And then some Hot Dog, Khopra Pattice and Batla Kachori during evening stroll. All this followed by some Coconut Crush, Garadu, Bhutte Ki Khees, Fruit Shots and what not, including a flying Dahi Bada in Sarafa. Is this mind boggling ? Well, all this was over about 36 hours in Indore.
