Savour the Flavours of Malvani Cuisine at Match Point, Taj Wellington Mews Chennai

Malvani food festival at Taj Wellington Mews Chennai

Malvani cuisine from the South Konkan region is celebrated for its bold flavours and coastal charm, and provides the essence of Maharashtra and Goa’s coastal cuisine. This feast of fresh seafood delights, enticing spices and coconut-infused dishes is a culinary voyage like no other! At Match Point, the multi-cuisine restaurant at Taj Wellington Mews Chennai, Executive Chef Bharati and her team has curated a menu that offers a unique culinary experience that showcases the rich flavours of the Konkan coast, where every bite is a celebration of coastal tradition.

From the tantalizing aroma of coriander seeds, peppercorns, cumin and dried red chilies to the tangy touch of kokum (Amsul), tamarind, and raw mango (Kairi), each dish is an ode to the culinary tradition of the South Konkan region. Start with the refreshing Kokum Shot, a tangy drink prepared with kokum juice, followed by an array of starters including Shenga Fry (Deep fried drumstick coated with semolina); Alu Vadi (Colocassia leaves smeared with spiced gram flour); Fish Fry  (Fish shallow fried with spices); and Kolambi Sukka (Stir fried prawns cooked with coconut).

Complement your meal with classic accompaniments like Tandalachi Bhakari (Flatbread made with rice flour); Amboli (Savoury pancake made with fermented lentils and rice); and Masala or Kolambi bhaat (Rice cooked with vegetables/prawns).
