The irrepressible and indomitable Travelling Gourmet TM goes to see my friend Chef…

MILIND who is the Corporate Chef for Rang Mahal and Table at Naumi boutique Hotel. The occasion? To taste his delectable dishes for the…India Street Food Fiesta from 9 to 18 August 2019. The fiesta features all vegetarian dishes (but not Vegan) to celebrate Singapore’s National Day on 9 August, and India’s Independence Day on 15 August. Naumi is Sanskrit for 9th Day which has an auspicious meaning.

I was most pleased to taste typical Street Food dishes like Pink City Raj Kachori, Kutchi Dabeli, Tad Deo Pao Bhajee and more! The special al fresco tasting was done at Cloud 9 which is on breezy level 10 of the hotel by the infinity pool. The India Street Food Fiesta will be at level 1 in Table restaurant of Naumi HOtel. The dishes were flavoursome without being too spicy. Those who appreciate Indian cuisine know that not all Indian food is chilli-hot! Chef Milind and I go back a long way and he explained with a chuckle, “Eighty percent of Indian cuisine is vegetarian!” I liked the Chandini Chok Ram Ladoo big Poori filled with yummy beans from Delhi.

I also relished the Elco Pani Poori. This is mini crispy Poori which you fill up with Bean Sprouts and then pour some emerald Green Mint Herbal Sauce from a test tube on it before eating! Poori is a balloon like hollow crispy pastry. They look like crystal balls!

A typical Indian dessert was Indian ice cream made to a Delhi recipe, namely Kulfi with shredded Coconut. Only Kulfi from New Delhi has coconut in it.

Cloud 9 is on the top level of Naumi hotel…Apart from enjoying the food, my eyes also feasted on marvellous panoramic views of Raffles and Raffles City, J W Marriott, the Singapore Flyer and the majestic Singapore River and shimmering Skyline of the Financial District in the sunshine.
