Chaayos is bringing back the romance to rains and the Delhi-Gurgaon monsoon scene with their latest menu. Monsoons have been reduced to impossible traffic jams, logs that make you want to boat away and an endless power cuts. But get back your monsoon mojo back (like we did!) with the super awesome Monsoon menu that Chaayos has come up with – chai, pakora and long, limitless conversations – what rains really should be like! And what’s more, those gorgeous over turned rainbow chatris that adorn the cafe! LOVE!
We started with our favourites – kulhad wali chai, kala khatta iced tea and pineapple, strawberry panna – the drinks were as good as ever. And I still can’t stop talking about their Kala Khatta iced tea!
Starting with monsoon staples – Barish wale pakode – very aptly named. Aloo pyaaz ki bhajiya, paneer pakoda and Mirchi vada crispy fried and topped with laal mirch masala and served with mint chutney. Perfect for the weather.
Bun Samosa – bun samosa happens to be one of my dad’s school time most favored snack and I never really got around to fathom the charm behind the combo. This one at Chaayos however comes in a sesame seed fresh bun with a samosa crushed and sandwiched in between, mint and tamarind chutney for dressing. Eat it when the samosa is crispy or it will lose its charm.
Kulhad Masala Chicken Kulcha – after the kulhad matar kulche mania, it is time for the chicken lovers to rejoice even more now. The thick creamy gravy with a tinge of sweetness, chicken bits and boiled egg intermingled makes for a truly delectable affair. Pair it with the soft, flavored kulchas and you are golden!
Chicken loaded open parantha – we love pizza. I mean LOVE it. And thus, were only jumping with joy (understandably normal) when we first saw this. A gorgeously prepared layered laccha parantha with a makhani chicken and tons of cheese. This is a marvelous pizza interpretation and absolutely not to be missed! (You can also check out our list of crazy pizzas here just for more yumms)
Finish off your meal with Kulhad wali Jalebi – crispie mini jalebis served in a kulhad!
What you can’t miss from Chaayos’ Monsoon love is their chicken additions.
