Pan Asian Cuisine - Newly Opened Asia Central in Shahpur jat

Asia Central, a new restaurant, located in Shahpur Jat, opened its doors in Mid January. The name itself calls for authentic flavors from all over Asia, like Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Malaysian.

Suggested by some foodie buddies, I gave it a shot and ordered some food. Being a home delivery, the only thing that may give worry is the packing. However, Asia Central's food containers are ensured to be packed in such a way that they do not spill. Each container is packed with zero spillage, stacked in a cardboard box which also has a brown paper envelope with two sets of chopsticks and tissues.

Get Farzified in CP

The word "Farzi" has many meanings, but at Farzi Cafe it has just one - creating an impression / magic with its food

Main focus is the gourmet diner as well as the youth of Delhi. A place where people can enjoy food from the finest and the freshest ingredients, catch up with friends, conduct meetings and spend some time away from their crazy day to day lives. With its quirky yet chic, modern Indian cafe concept, people experience food that uses elements of molecular gastronomy. The generous dose of flavours where culinary art meets molecular gastronomy is sure to absorb you into a gastronomic magic. The chefs here will show that you have been cooking like cavemen all your lives but the foam, powders and fumes from their lab kitchen is a complete surrender.

Apple Fritters Fry

Yes, fried. I understand how the thought of frying can be scary for all calorie conscious people. Yet I did experiment, going against the trend set for 2016. I have been there and back (of disliking myself for doing so) :P

Shall share a Recipe soon that does not involve frying.

Though this is the shortest Recipe, there are Tips to make sure that you move smoothly all along.

Lets start with Apples. Slice apples from the center and cut in ring shaped. Do not peel the skin. Make sure to de- seed them with the help of a cutter. Submerge these apples in ice cold water with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. You can also do this a night before so the apples are ready to go when you fry them.
