Andhra Pradesh is a Southern coastal state in India, and one with a very strong food influence. With a dearth of Andhra food in London, we decided to put together an elaborate feast covering all the must have delicacies from the region.

Whether you are missing your mum's gongura mutton, or if you are intrigued by what Andhra cuisine is all about, our carefully crafted menu is sure to take you on a culinary journey through Andhra. 

MENU

Starters:

Mirapakaya Bajji -  Whole green chillies stuffed with tamarind and spices , we dare you!! 

Chiken Pakoda  - Boneless chicken and a special mix of Andhra spices make this an unusual and flavourful starter

(Vegetarian option: Aritikaya Bajji- Plantain and a special mix of Andhra spices make this an unusual and flavourful starter)

Mains:

Chepala Pulusu - A famous fish preparation from the coastal parts of Andhra Pradesh, this is cooked with tamarind and onions, hence giving it a distinct taste and aroma.

(Vegetarian option: Bendakaya pulusu- An okra curry cooked with tamarind and onions, giving it a distinct taste and aroma).

Gongura Mamsam - Closest to the Sorrel leaves in UK, Gongura is something that the locals go crazy about. We are cooking these greens with mutton!  

(Vegetarian option: Gutti Vanakaya- Mini aubergines stuffed with spices and cooked whole)     

Dondakaya  Vepudu - Nicknamed gentlemen's toes, these gherkins are fabulous with grated coconut and some red chillies. 

Rasam - Simple but significant, rasam makes it to the dinner table every other day in an Andhra household. A soup of sorts with tamarind and tomatoes, it soothes your palate.

Tomato Pappu - Lentils & tomatoes tempered with mustards and garlic, this is  a great accompaniment to steamed rice 

Perugu Garelu  - Savoury doughnuts made of lentils and soaked in flavoured yougurt - you have to eat it to believe it.

Appapadalu  - No Andhra meal is complete without some good 'ol papodums

Annam - Hot steaming rice topped with ghee is all you need to polish off that fish pulusu and mutton curry 

Kodi pilau - A regional preparation of rice and chicken and no, it is not a biriyani. 

(Vegetarian option: Veg Pilau- A regional preparation of rice and veg and no, it is not a biriyani).

Desserts:

Boorelu – Sweet lentils with coconut and cardamom, battered and fried, served with ghee - We bet you can't eat just one! 

Payasam - Vermicilli cooked in milk, cardamom and topped with nuts, a common celebratory treat in most Andhra houses.

Filter Coffee with Gulabi Puvvulu -  Sweet and crispy, this flower shaped snack is a treat to your eyes as well!

Authentic Andhra

When it rains in London, the only thing my Indian heart craves for is, steaming hot "Bajjis". Oh Yes!!! My Sunday was that perfect. Watching the rain, savouring the spread of Bajjis, Pakoras and sharing a good laugh with some wonderfull people over a glass of cool buttermilk. Someone once said ~ Eating is one of the great beauties of life ~ and to compliment that, the setup of the place you are eating, equally matters. ‪#‎chaiparty‬ made me feel as if I have walked into a house in Andhra Pradesh. Each detail was taken care of so beautifully. And then arrived the king sized "Thalis" with a mix of every flavour your tongue can recognize. The Perugu Garelu battling with the Tomato Pappu and the Chepala Pulusu trying to make it's way through the Kodi pilau and steaming Annam. Frankly I cannot be biased to one dish as they all were equally scrumptious. Just when I thought I am done with my lunch, there come the deserts and steal the show. The Boorelu sitting on top a mouth watering Vanilla cream, the Payasam with just the perfect flavour of cardamom, the pretty Gulabi Puvvulu and a "Meter Coffee" to sum it up all. Guy's thanks a lot for an authentic journey of Andhra. Keep more coming!!!
