Chaat for all season Choopati Gangotree

 No one can say no to some hot and tangy Chaat and Pakoda’s. Though Chaat is for all season but rainy season is the perfect excuse to indulge in some fried goodness. And if one get a chance to pair them with some exotic tea mixes prepared from Srilankan Tea leaves then it turns out to be the perfect pairing. So your search for perfect Chaat and Pakoda’s ended with ‘Gangotree – The House of Designer Sweets,Chat and Caterers’  situated at lower ground floor of Mantri square mall, Malleshwaram.

 I visited them just in time for their ‘Rainy Treats’ festival which was going on during 13th June to 28th June. But overall you can find most of the newly introduced item’s even after this festival. The ‘ Rainy Treats’ menu had a total of 25 varieties of pakoda’s , 17 types of Hot teas from Srilanka, 8 types of Tea Shakes / Tea Mocktails.

On a daily basis the standard menu has Chaats, 13 varities of Paratha’s served with curd and pickles, Sandwiches, Pav, Puri Sabji, Pulao served with curd, cool beverages and  Icegola’s to keep you company when you are in a mood to gorge on chatpata snacks, short eats and quick meals.

I started with the Pani Puri’s which is stuffed with spicy potato masala and hing wale khatta pani as well as sweet pani. My recommendation would be they should add more of tamarind pulp and Mint leaves for added taste in their sour pani for the Panipuri’s.

Then I tried the unique Jalebi Chat which is basically hot, crisp and thin jalebi’s topped with chat masala and a green chutney. The interesting thing was the jalebi’s retains their crunchiness throughout .

Then the unusual Rosgulla Pakode and Gulab Jamun Pakode which is basically Rosgulle and gulab jamun deep fried after a coating of besan or chickpea flour after discarding the excess watery sugar syrup. So one can really enjoy the crisp salty outer layer and soft spongy sweet inner. This two in one combo is just fabulous.

Then the Kulfi Pakode is nothing but Kulfi coated with the besan batter and deep fried to be consumed at once. It’s the same version like fried icecream but here chickpea flour is used rather than Cornflour. It’s an altogether different experience of enjoying hot and cold in a single mouthful.

The Masala puri’s were great with the boiled potatoes stuffing along with the chopped Onion’s and chutneys.

The Alu Tikkie Chola Chat turns out to be the best as one can really enjoy the hot and crispy alu tikkies with the boiled Chickpeas.

The Bread pakoda is simple yet favourite among the kid’s as it was non spicy.

Don’t miss out on the Bread Cheese Pakoda with a filling of three types of cheese if you are a lover of cheese like me.

Moong Dal Pakode turns out to be my personal favorite and really goes well with the masale wali kulhad ki chai.

Again Mini Dal Pakode was crisp and with some whole sabut dal was very tasty.

The Stuffed Green Chillies were really addictive with a flavourful Spicy mashed potato filling ,batter coated and deep fried and served with both red and green chutney.

The plain Hari Mirch ke Pakode was lovely with no filling.

The Tawa Pulav was spiciest and served with curd and pickle and was very filling as that was loaded with so many vegetables.

IMG_20160619_143256

The Pav Bhaji was just okay as it lacks the punch of the tangy bhaji. According to me they they should use finely chopped vegetables and boiled mashed vegetables in a ratio of 30:70.

The Cheese Pav Bhaji was almost similar and served with some grated Cheese.

The Paneer Paratha was lovely and filled with some grated paneer and masala.

The Aloo Puri combo with subtle flavoured Aloo curry with puffed Puri is absolutely fantastic.

The Best thing was one can customise the spice level of all these item’s according to own’s choice. Not to miss the pungent flavour of raw garlic chutney in most of the items.

The different flavour’s of Ice Gola’s paired very well with the spicy snack’s.

Then comes the time for quirky yet refreshing Tea’s prepared from Srilanka Tea Leaves. One can’t miss out on trying atleast ‘Devil’s Angel'( Tea, Curd, Crushed Ice and Honey) which is a refreshing Tea mocktail prepared with curd.

Then ‘Simply Divine’ (Tea, Apple Juice, Mint, Cinnamon and Clove) is a fruity connotation which will instantly add an zing in your mood.

Not to forget the ‘ Spice Ice Baby’ (Tea, Black pepper, Green Chilli and Brown Sugar) which is sure to give relief to one’s sore throat.

The Kulhad wali Masala Tea ( tea with ginger, green cardamom and bayleaf)  is the perfect accompaniments with all the chatpata sncaks.

IMG_20160621_105659

Lastly I ended up with the Gangotree Sweets which tasted amazing with a taste of pure ghee. Later I realized it’s very difficult to share these with any one.
