We were invited to taste the Christmas and New Year eve special anglo Indian delicacies at the Sonnet ( 20/12/16).
Anglo Indian cuisine developed during the British Raj era and gradually flourished overtime. We were welcomed with fresh lime soda , which was enjoyable.I was lucky enough to taste the following items –
1) Chicken cutlet , which was crunchy with good fillings and was nice.
2) Egg in the nest , which looked very nice, tasted good too. It’s a hard boiled egg coated with spice and mashed potato mixture, crusted with vermicelli .
3) Mulligatawny soup, made of lentil and rice was thick and good and healthy too.

12)Live roasted Koyel, I tried for 1st time, it tastes like chicken but softer with thin bones. It was a surprise item, pretty decent and enjoyable .
13) jalebi, kesariya of apple and pineapple were unique and enjoyable.
