Aaha!! - r

2 weeks due since I had to write down the feelings of my tongue then on that day.

Got to visit Aahar, the new veggie dining option added to the authentic veg crowd of Mylapore along with the fellow folks of Chennai Food Guide.

The long list of menu varies from South Indian to North Indian and overseas to the Indo-chinese options. The dinner started with a rich spicy Mulligatawny Soup and then a platter of salads and starters running through all varieties of the cuisine.

 Noodles salad

Paneer Tikka

Paruppu vada

 Podi Idly

 While every one of them stood good by taste a couple of items stood longer on my taste buds. Noodle salad and Podi Idly. True that the restaurant had a special recipe for the 'Podi' used and the one of the signature dishes they claimed, the 'Podi Dosa' is a treat when you crave for hot spices.

Podi Dosa

The North Indian  name of the restaurant has no disappointment across the Bread Basket or the accompanies Rajma Dhaal, Paneer Shahi Korma or Mili Juli Subji.

Many of the long tongued friends across the table felt that the Veg. Biriyani was as good as a well made Chicken Biriyani void of the chicken. I loved what ever it was as is with no other Biriyani in my mind to compare.

Nishanth and couple of others who had been already there kept on talking about the 'ghee floating' carrot halwa they had during their previous visit. We tried out Carrot halwa and Gulab Jamoon - warm to to warm up the dessert course and cooled down the evening with Basunthi.

The quality of service and challenging pricing in the menu card will soon put Aahar as a place of choice over just being another option for veggie food lovers of South Chennai. 

The place also offers South Indian meals for lunch and open from 7 AM to 11 AM. The banquet hall is already busy with a lot of parties and functions and the biggest plus of the building is full exclusive space for parking in the ground floor.

Location: Just opposite to Sathya furniture and adjacent to Scientific publishers on the road from Luz to Royapettah.

Not to miss: Podi Dosa, Podi Idly, Veg Biriyani and Carrot halwa.
