Café Delhi Heights is renowned for its innovative food festivals, this time, they have come up with another unique culinary adventure, “Rice Above the Rest”. Don’t be guiled into underestimating this humble staple of our country. According to Café Delhi Heights founder Vikrant Batra, rice is the most cherished grain in the world due to its adaptability. Cafe Delhi Heights is conjuring up an unparalleled feast, from dishes like Khichdi Pulao to Biryani, the fragrant pots of rice and spiced meats. 

The corporate chef at Café Delhi Heights, Chef Aashish Singh, goes on to say that the menu was created while keeping in mind that different states have varied tastes for rice. Rice is regarded as the most nutritious grain despite having a high glycemic index because there are a lot of varieties available, including fibrous varieties like red rice. He further stressed how they’ve added dishes from several regions to the menu, including West Bengal, Maharashtra, Assam, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh. One can savour rice variants from the Andhra/Karnataka belt, such as Hyderabadi Biryani, Bisi Bele Bath, and Curd Rice. 

Savour the specialities of different regions such as Masale Bhaat from Maharashtra, Payesh from Assam, Gian Pilaf from Goa, Tehri from Lucknow, Yakhni Pulao from Kashmir, and Jadoh from Meghalaya. Aside from the Indian specialities, the menu includes favourites from other international cuisines, too, such as risotto, paella, jasmine rice with stir-fried greens, and a chipotle burrito bowl. An array of rice varieties, including Musk Budij, Goan short grain red rice, Ambe Mohar, Joha, Rajbhog Arua rice, Dehraduni Basmati, Illupai Poo Samba, and Musk Budij, have been sourced to ensure that every dish is prepared to the highest standard possible, incorporating the ideal amalgamation of flavours, spices, and the chef's magic.
