As all of us know Durga Puja is an incomparable occasion to Bengalis and everyone wanted to make sure that during puja their dinning menu should be grand and great. In this sacred festival people gather from different places and ethnicities who have one thing in general: ‘Their worship of great foodstuff!’. Tamara, Pipal Tree invites everyone to come and enjoy the auspicious occasion with their friends & families. Try out some authentic and delicious ethnic Bengali foods while making new friends during puja and learning about Bengali cultures at the same time.
Housed in one of the most beautiful Hotel on Rajarhat area, Tamara is the place you definitely want to bring your loved one for a romantic date or a family get-togethers or if you’re looking to impress on a business meal. It’s even more spectacular when the candles lit up at night, oozing charm and elegance. The ingredients used here are sourced mostly from local markets, with an emphasis on organic ingredients, as well as seasonal and sustainable produce, justifying its cheap price point.
Their Durga puja special menu contains Shuktoni, Jhuri Aloo Bhaja, Misti Pulao, Beguni, Cholar Dal Narkel Diye, Luchi, Shona Moonger Dal, Dhokar Dalna, Chanar Mohima, Pabdar Jhaal, Rasun Bhapa Kakra, Goalondo Mutton Bhuna, Chingri Macher Malai Curry, Barisaler Bhapa Ilish, Rabri Payes, Misti Doi, Sandesh and Papad.
Go with a hearty appetite because you won’t want to miss their Dhokar Dalna and the Chanar Mohima. The Rasun Bhapa Kakra here will leave you begging for more, especially the ever-popular signature Barisaler Bhapa Ilish. Depends on your taste buds go for the spice-kissed Pabdar Jhaal, or try the milder Chingri Macher Malai Curry and the flavoursome Goalondo Mutton Bhuna. Resistance is futile, so just dig into their mouthwatering delicacy.
The Barisaler Bhapa Ilish, a classic Bengali dish, reflects the freshness and boldness of spices and still remains delicate; no doubt one of the best you’ll come across. The Classic, Rasun Bhapa Kakra, sounds simple but will surely hit all the right spots with its genuine taste and flavours.
Tuck into another signature Goalondo Mutton Bhuna, boasting incredible flavour and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, and served with boiled egg. The Pabdar Jhaal was a crowd pleaser as well, spicy and packed with lip smacking flavours.
Do not miss their Chingri Macher Malai Curry that was delightful and tender beyond belief and slightly fried to get that golden-brown perfection.
The traditional Misti Pulao here was mild fragrant and was Free Flow with any mains you choose. The winning combo of the pulao was their two signatures Goalondo Mutton Bhuna and Chingri Macher Malai Curry they were so insanely satisfying, it almost doesn’t matter what you get it with.
Save some space to end your meal with their scrumptious desserts. Their beautifully plated Sandesh not only looks pretty, it tastes pretty darn good too. For a sweet finale, the delightfully balanced Misti Doi is bound to please every soul.
