Adda recently launched their new menu across both outlets and after a stellar tasting at the Pimple Saudagar outlet a couple of years ago, I was really excited when we were invited for their new menu launch as well. Here’s a brief summary of my experience at the tasting.
We started off with the Chicken Ghee Roast with Kerala Parotta was an absolute delight. The chicken was succulent and juicy with the traditional touch of South Indian spices and went well with the flaky Kerala Parotta.
The Biryani Arancini – biryani rice stuffed and deep fried served on a bed of raita and fried onions. Interesting twist to the humble arancini, but I thought the arancini was too dry. The Orange Chicken tossed in orange zest and sesame sauce was a bit too sweet for our liking.
The Cajun Potato – deep fried potato discs with Cajun spiced sauce & Garlic Chana Fry – whole garlic petals with chana were perfect accompaniments to our drinks. The Corn Chili Pepper – golden corn tossed in bell pepper and onions served in a wonton basket was quite addictive. We couldn’t help but fight for the last few bites.
The star of the night was clearly the Chicken in Mat Kha sauce – a sauce so spicy that it left my lips burning. It is basically chicken lollipops tossed in a spicy sauce and they serve it to you with water and their best wishes, how nice of them right? Well, I must say it was totally worth it because I downed three of ‘em lollies and put some ice to my lips to ease the burning.
The Thai Fries – poutine with peanut saue, fried onion, garlic and crushed peanuts had a subtly sweet flavour. This one’s a must try for the Thai and fries’ lovers. The Tandoori Momos too packed a punch of flavours.
The Chicken Seekh Kebab served on a bed of naan with onions and green chutney, were really good. The only thing I felt missing here was some raita. The Hari Bhari Achari Tikki was a bit sour for me.
For mains, we had the Veg Biryani and the Butter Chicken. I was a bit sceptical to try the Veg Biryani but I must say it was a really good flavoursome preparation. The Butter Chicken came with breads and jeera rice but the gravy was a little too sweet for my liking. A special mention to the jeera rice which lifted my moods because there are very few places that get it right – sticky and perfectly cooked.
I skipped desserts since I was too full but they were enjoyed by my fellow bloggers. A big shout out to Chaitanya, Ramma & Team Adda for inviting and hosting us.
