With the arrival of winter season, restaurants and Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) are gearing up for the winter menu. It is that time of the year when the appetite naturally increases and the demand for the deep fried fritters and warm hugging cups of chai or hot chocolate rises. Seasonal vegetables and fruits also make a comeback to the menu.
Rooh, an international Indian restaurant and cocktail bar has launched a special winter menu with selection of dishes that can provide much needed warmth and comfort to the soul in this season. Curated by Chef Sujan Sarkar, Rooh’s new menu celebrates seasonal produce and authentic and traditional winter delicacies. Delectable dishes such as Sarson da saag with polenta bread and Nolen cream, Tomato and Burrata with Heirloom tomato and Persimmon Khatta, and Lambo mole with Chocolate Nihari are some of the must try at Rooh this winter. End the meal on a sweet note with Chef’s special Cashew Phirni Cake Mousse.
Along with tantalizing winter warmer dishes, Rooh has also introduced a range of house fermented beverages to derive maximum flavors from ingredients available in the season. Techniques such as fermentation, pickling and dehydration have been used to minimize usage of synthetic flavors, sugar and preservatives. Signature range includes Fermented Chai, Fermented Spiced Apple, and Fermented Milk Whey, to name a few.
