Fall head over heels for Lokahaar, the newest Bengali restaurant that has landed on our shores! This new-fangled Bengali food joint Lokahaar had organized its first Pithe Puli Utsaav at its flagship outlet between 15th January, 2016 to 21st January, 2016 to mark its inception and meet the appreciation of its esteemed customers. Situated at 533, Jodhpur Park, which is a prime Bengali locality, Lokahaar is a 30 seated restaurant stretched across 700 sqft, which also offers exotic strains of rice, organic honey and ghee. They pride in promoting artisans, handmade spices and handicrafts from different districts of Bengal.
Bongs are recognized as born foodies and the connoisseurs know how far it can extend beyond familiar Maach Bhaat. Bengali cuisine represents a fine balance between the main course, the confectioneries and the seasonal desserts. In fact, Poush Sankranti can never be complete for a true blue bangali without enjoying pithe and puli.
Mr. Basudeb Ghotok, Patron, Lokahaar believed “Catering to a variety of taste, Lokahaar takes its esteemed customers beyond the pleasures of authentic Bengali Food. Designed for discovery, their boutique store is a treasure trove.”
Now a day’s most valuable thing in a person’s life is time (except me), everybody is too hard-pressed for time and living a fast paced life. Making pithe puli properly at home requires lots of time and these traditional sweets are becoming rarities in our kitchen nowadays. Restaurants like Lokahaar in our city have taken it upon themselves to keep everyone taste buds happy and the tradition alive.
Keeping these factors in mind, the Patron thought of organizing this Pithe Puli Utsaav. The team presents a variety of items like Channar Pithe, Malpoya, Patishapta, Dudh Gokul, Dudh Puli, Narkel Chusi, Chusi Pithe, Rosho Puli and Chandana Kheer.
The Classic Dudh Puli was the simplest of the variations served here —allowing you to experience it in its true form. For something a little fancier, go for the Chusi Pithe that comes with long rice shaped pitha boiled in milk and jiggery (gur). Then, in a whimsical end, stuff your face with Channar Pithe or Malpoya and that crisp yet melt in your mouth feelings will definitely fill your heart with joy.
The price pinch for 2 is Rs 500 approx and Lokahaar is open from noon till 10pm, you’ll be able to settle your cravings long before dinner. This is a great spot for traditional Bengali lunch or dinner, especially for groups who can’t decide where to eat! It’s better to bring two or three friends so you can try more dishes!
