Mango Fest at The Yellow Chilli


Muscat - 

Keeping up with the innovative style of Sanjeev Kapoor coupled with the summer tradition of gourmet lovers in Muscat, The Yellow Chilli, Oman is hosting a month-long mango festival until the end of May.

“The king of fruits has had the fancy of the Chef Kapoor since quite some time. So, he has developed some mouth-watering, authentic and unique Indian recipes for mango lovers. With the temperature soaring high every day, the foodies will get a chance to cool off with either the traditional aam panna or the Mango Mojito. Another highlight of the aam menu are dishes like Aam Rass Pani Poori, Amchur Papad, Nachos, Mango Salasa, Dahi Ke Kebab – Chhundo Chilli Dip, Arvi Aamiya Seekh, Achari Murgh Tikka, Karara Ambi Jhinga - Mango Tartar, Khatti Tawa Machchhi – Dhaniya Pudina Tabouleh, Khatti-Meethi Nalli Boti. To satiate the sweet tooth, there is also desserts like Mango Cool-Fi, Mango Malai Cream," says Sayan Ganguly, from the Mazaya Oman marketing team the parent company who brought The Yellow Chilli to Oman.

The festival showcases the real taste of India’s strength, diversity and culture through its authentic and mouth-watering cuisine even from the king of fruits – mangoes! This was in a nutshell of what was highlighted by several prominent figures who graced the restaurant during the festival. In his statement, Chef Manoj Radi of The Yellow Chilli said, “Indian cuisine is among the best in the world. The strong bonds of ties between India and Oman, date back to eras and the influence of Indian cuisine is more evident in the sultanate’s present day. Many traders from Oman came to India and this resulted in Arab influence in Indian cuisine too and Mango Festival was just another way to strengthen the bond.”

Tirthankar Basu, business head of Mazaya urged Omanis to seize the real taste of India by enjoying the dishes prepared by Chef Radi, and influenced by Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor. Drawing attention to the popularity of the Indian cuisine in Oman, he said, “There are numerous restaurants in Oman, and if we put together all those working in the oil industry, their number is less than those working in the Indian restaurants.”
