Delicious Guajarati cuisines will be served to Japan’s PM and his lady!
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of bringing Bullet trains in India will soon turn into reality soon. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and his wife Akie have already received a warm welcome from PM Modi. When you visit Gujarat, indulging in a large Gujarati thali is a must. And that’s one thing the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and his wife Akie, might have in their wish list too.
Our PM Narendra Modi, who hails from this state, is making sure that the Japanese leader and his entourage gets a taste of the brilliant flavours that Gujarat offers.
After the day’s tour is over (which includes the Gandhi Ashram and Siddi Sayeed Ni Jaali Mosque), the group will head to Agashiye, an iconic terrace restaurant in Ahmedabad.
Authentic Gujrati food with rich India flavours will be served to the International guests!
This restaurant is well-known for serving authentic Gujarati dishes, and while the dinner menu has not been revealed, we can just guess what might be served to the prestigious guest!
1. The dinner will be purely vegetarian keeping in mind the preferences of both, the Indian PM and the state of Gujarat. Anybody familiar with Gujarati cuisine can tell you just how delicious its dishes are, despite the absence of meat. For the Japanese guests, this promises to be a unique meal, because they are, after all, used to eating rice and fish as staples. Indians are more vegetarians, they have their own culture so might be food that will served to the guest will be vegetarian.
2. PM Modi’s favourite Gujarati dishes are sure to be on the menu, especially since he is playing the host tonight. Handvo, the savoury and super-healthy cake–which Modi has claimed he is particularly partial towards–will definitely be a part of the meal. Modi’s other favourites, Khichdi and Gujrati Khadi, might make it to the platter as well, especially since they are usually served in a traditional Gujarati thali.
3. Gujaratis love their farsaan or snacks. Can a guest have a meal in Gujarat without indulging in khakhras and dhoklas? Of course not! It won’t be a true representation of the state if these snacks are missing from the diplomatic dinner table tonight.
4. Bajra or millet flour is a staple of Gujarat, just as much as other flour varieties. Apart from puris and rotis, we can expect some theplas on the plate, along with rice.
5. Gujarati cuisine boasts of a number of sabjis and dals, but there are two that stand out. Undhiyo is a mix-vegetable dish that is considered auspicious by Gujaratis, and second is tuvar daal is a must on a thali. We’re sure the Japanese PM’s meal will also include these favourites.
6. Gujarat was the birthplace of the White Revolution, and for good reason. The drinks as well as desserts in this state celebrate milk. Buttermilk, famously known as chaas laced with cumin and coriander leaves, is served to guests. And no meal in Gujarat can end without a taste of the famous shrikhandl, the hung curd dessert flavoured with saffron, pistachios and seasonal fruits.
We don’t know exactly what type of dishes will be served to the guests but we are pretty sure PM Modi has plan something very special for them. As these are Gujarat’s famous dishes so might be it will be served!
