Tadka Talk – Velachery

17 Feb


This new post is all about the Punjabi Restaurant – “Tadka Talk – by Chef Arora” located in Velachery.  This was yet another CFG Showcase.   And it is “all – veg” restaurant!!!  As part of this blog, I am using the photographs clicked by “Fotographer YesDee”

Having heard good reviews about this place, was quite excited to be here for the Showcase.  Reaching a bit earlier than the expected time, gave us time to explore the interiors and here is a quick view of the interiors.





As part of welcome drink, we tasted Kiwi & Aam Panna – which tasted sweet & spicy.   Chef made a twist to Aam Panna by adding some kiwi to it.   This drink was made with Raw Mango, Sugar & Herbs and is claimed to be one of the best drinks for Summer.

Kiwi Aam Panna

One of our team members asked for a different drink and what he got was yummily tasting“Kesar Pistawale Lassi”


Then it was time for Chole di Rassa” — a shorba made out of Channa with channa pieces to bite into.  This was a bit spicy but tasted damn good!


With that our tables were getting ready for starter course

Our starter course included – a plate with :
“Panneer Amristari” –— Panneer dipped in gram flour batter with Ajwain & deep fried in Mustard oil.  This was a yumm Dish!  Panneer was super soft.

“Lahori Sheekh Chollia Te Khumbwalli” –  This had green gram, paneer, cheese, almonds etc. mixed and made as kebab.

Corn based Kebab (not sure of the name!).  These started tasted good with the “Mango Chutney” (see pic above on 3 chutneys).

Mango chutney needs a special mention here as it tasted so nice that we were literally drinking on it 😉


As part of main course we had Tandoori Roti, Butter Naan & Pulao — Breads were soft and Butter Naan was rich with butter that we could even smell the butter 😉

As side dishes we were served :  Rajma, Aloo Gobi & Paneer – all 3 dishes tasted good.

With all dishes tasting so good….it was also filling our stomach fast! 🙂

Now with time for desserts, we had two options — One was Hot Gulab Jamun — this was super yummy just that I missed my Vanilla Ice cream combo with it

& other was “Rasamalai”  — this was good; it had a bit of strong rose flavour which wasn’t giving some of us a good feeling but nothing to complain majorly here! 🙂


One of our team members also tried Kajar Halwa during one of his visits and was raving about it.  So you can also check that out 🙂

The whole experience was super yummy I should say!  And the chefs behind these yummy dishes are:


The menu that we were served was part of “Tasting Menu” — which includes 1 Starter, 1 soup, unlimited main course, 1 dessert – costing only Rs. 385/- (as of today).  Check this menu out if you want to get an overall feel !

Though located in Velachery and some of us could feel that it is far away….I should say this place is worth the effort to travel.  We had our team members coming from Anna Nagar & Mogappair…so yea…go for it!
