The Great Indian Khichdi Festival, Good Punjabi food! Hello @Neel

IMG-20180803-WA0097

We absolutely loved this place as the food taste and quality is standard .

I love the Mahalaxmi outlet for its beautiful decor and being by the racecourse .

The Powai outlet is more like an all day place with modern ambience and gives you best of both worlds – Indigo Deli and Neel. You can order from what you like.

We were craving for good punjabi food .

Cost would be ₹2000 for two.

We loved their Khichdi .
It is absolutely a Bowlful of soul !
Rediscover regional khichdi and what not.
There was more than our imagination. There was from Kathiyawadi Khichdi to Maharastrian khichdi to Bisi Belle Bhaath to Kolumbichi Khichdi to Karnataka to Bajre ki Khichdi .

We tried Pahadi Khichdi ₹400
Unpolished short grain rice cooked with red kidney beans
Served with roasted papad, onion curd, red pumpkin raita, butter milk, mustard chutney .
We found it really wholesome and devoured on it.
