All of them will be served high tea and dinner after the ceremony at 7 pm. It is expected to be the biggest –ever event at Rashtrapati Bhavan, as per reports. Amid all this, the one thing that caught our attention was ‘Food’ that is going to be served in the Oath ceremony.

The event will include vegetarian and non- vegetarian dishes. A number of head states,  heads of governments, diplomats, Senior Political leaders and media persons are scheduled to attend the event.

Let’s take a look at the drooling menu of PM’s Oath Ceremony:

  • Soup

  • Vegetables Lemon Tarts
  • Dal Raisina ( Variant of Maa Ki Dal)

This all will be available for the guests. Notably, Dal Raisina is a variant of Maa Ki Dal which takes around 48 hours to cook.  Interestingly, Dal Raisina was introduced by  Machindra Kasture who became the first chef for the President of India in Rashtrapati Bhavan, after he was chosen by former President Pratibha Patil.
