We always love to dine out and dig into our favourite dishes. But at times, it comes a bit of a problem for the health-conscious ones as they always look for healthier versions. Recently, THN was invited to visit Tamra, the multi-cuisine restaurant of Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel, New Delhi.
The restaurant draws inspiration from the initial years of culinary revolution, the time when copper (tamra) vessels were key components in making a perfect meal while retaining its nutritious values. The rustic and earthy interiors are inspired by the trading markets when Indian spices, jute, copper, silk, leather and other items were appreciated all over the world. Tamra’s open and interactive kitchens are a tribute to the early marketplace, where Chefs showcased their skills and produced culinary delights to sell them to traders and visitors.
Tamra offers one of the best and most scrumptious buffets in the city. We bring to you some healthy vegetarian options you can easily gorge on without worrying about the calories.
Take your pick from this healthy buffet counter which has roasted and grilled options to offer.
This is how my plate looked like. Roasted zucchini, grilled bell peppers with cheese slices, cottage cheese, sesame seeds and broccoli.
Here is one of the busiest counters of the restaurant, the live Sushi counter. Here you can see your sushi in making or you can also make your own sushi with the help of the Chef.
Rajma Khichdi with Urad dal wadi. This was the best rendition of this Indian dish I have ever had. So next time you go out, make your child eat this one.
I know what you are thinking, Chocolate and healthy. Well, after so much healthy food, a dessert is a must and moreover, dark chocolate is also good for health. Presenting the Tamra chocolate.
The restaurant also has a variety of teas and coffees. We tried the old-favourite Masala Chai.
