The restaurant has delicious food and the ambiance is amazing. There are so many sitting options, poolside with live musical performance and indoor. The buffet spread is elaborate and delicious. They have their own organic farms and a lot of salads and green vegetables were...fresh from the farm. Green vegetables have never tasted better, I enjoyed eating greens after so long! The desserts were also amazing. And the best was the staff who lovingly served me all the time!More

I had recently visited the Dikhala Restaurant at Aahana for a family lunch and was very happy with the experience. The place serves a varied cuisine right from healthy food to cheesy Italian. The menu catered to all my family member right from my grandparents...to the kids.The food was delicious and well prepared. The restaurant has pool side view which makes the food even more enjoyable. The staff extremely courteous and attentive. It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely visit again :)More

Corbett Tiger Reserve is synonymous with the big cats of the jungle and so is Aahana, The Corbett Wilderness resort which is a synonym of luxury in the jungles. Both of them have an attitude of their own and are a beauty to watch and...experience. Aahana adds to the natural beauty of the hills of Kumaon region in Uttrakhand and is one of the most luxurious and well designed resorts in the Corbett Tiger reserve area. I will be talking about the facilities including the Organic Farms and Spa/Naturopathy center at Aahana in a separate story. Here in this story I am going to talk about the Kumaoni food that I savoured during my stay at Aahana. For me local food has always been a must to experience when I am travelling to a place. Whether it’s the rural cuisine or a region specific cuisine, I normally venture out in the area and explore the regional culinary arts with the locals. Kumaon region is normally known for its scenic hills and its culture and traditions. The local cuisine also showcases the region’s own produce. At Aahana too, the moment a guest enters, he is offered a refreshing drink made with locally made Buransh (Rhododendron) flowers that freshens up a soul after a long drive. Aahana’s only restaurant Dhikala offers one of the best foods I have ever had in any of the innumerable resorts all over India. The buffet spread is lavish – its difficult to choose a dish from any of the counters, whether its salads or mains or dessert. As part of my travel rituals, during my stay at Aahana too, I wanted to go out and try the local cuisine available in the village Sanwalde. But was advised otherwise, and was offered to try out the Kumaoni food they will be preparing specially for me. In Kumaon Daal, chutneys and sweet dishes area must with every meal. Mustard oil is primarily used for cooking and pulses like gehet, gauth, toor, swanta and gauthare are used to make Daals. Herbs and vegetables locally grown and also wildly available provide the unusual flavours to the cuisine. Lot of leafy vegetables, even Bicchu buti saag (stinging nettle grass) is used in making the green vegetable dishes in the kitchens. Lingadu saag (wild asparagus) also is used like other hilly places in India. Bal Mithai and Singori are the most famous sweet dishes from the region and can be found in every sweet shop. On the second day of our stay at Aahana, we were treated with a few of the special Kumaoni dishes, and here they are: Aloo Kumaoni is a dish made of pahari potatoes fried in mustard oil and is a traditional dish widely available in small eateries along the winding hill roads. It is locally known as Aloo ke Gutke. The potato fries are seasoned with fried red chillies, coriander leaves, and other spices. Bhatt ki Churkani is made with a locally grown black soy bean, and this is one of the iconic dishes. Rice paste is used to blend the black Bhatt ki daal in a cast iron kadhai. The iron from the kadhai and protein from the lentil make it an extremely nutritious dish and is similar to what we know as Daal Makahni. Muli ka Thechua, is made from crushed pahari mooli (white radish) and mixed with potatoes. It is then cooked with onions, tomatoes, and roasted powdered sesame seeds. Green Saag, or Organic Green Vegetable, is made of Sisunaak or Bicchu saag. Bicchu buti which is otherwise a dangerous plant that can give you itches and rashes once touched. But when made into a dish, it can be scrumptious and nutritious. They boil the leaves and cook it over low heat and then add a lot of butter. Pahadi Raita, is prepared from curd, turmeric, grated cucumber, green chillies and mustard seeds and is a must with almost every meal they have. Jhangora Rice, is made out of a local millet called Jhangora. The finished dish looks just like the UPMA from the south Indian cuisine. The texture is quite rich and it’s a super tasty preparation. Tastes best when mixed with Kumaoni Jholi. Kumaoni Jholi, reminded me of the famous Bengali curry dishes an dmy own Kadhi from Rajasthan. Jholi is thin gravy made out of curd. The main ingredient is besan which is added with curd and other spices (by the way, I do make good Rajasthani Kadhi myself). Meat is also prepared but the recipe is quite similar to the way it is prepared in most of North India and at Aahana we were offered the Mutton Shikhar, which I couldn’t try being a vegetarian. I am sure my audience must by now be envying me to have had this fortune of savouring such a great and tasty meal from Kumaon region. But, but guys don’t envy me, plan a trip to Aahana and savour the great cuisine for yourself. I tried most of the veggie dishes, but at the end was slightly disappointed as I didn’t find any serving of the traditional Kumaoni sweets in the dessert section, so was content to feast on my favourite choco ice creams. After this sumptuous lunch, it was time for the explorer in me to go out and get pally with the birds on campus and I did return fully awarded. More about that in my next blog on Aahana The Corbett Wilderness. Chao…More
