All you foodies out there, here’s your chance to sample a cusine that you won’t commonly find in Singapore – North-East Indian Cuisine. For those of you who might not know, Indian food varies greatly as you move accross regions and states. While North-East India still remains among the lesser explored regions of India, its cuisine is renowned for its strong flavours and colourful dishes.
You now have a chance to experience the famed North-Eastern Cuisine as Yantra by Hemant Oberoi brings to you A Treat of the Seven Sisters, which is a North-East Indian Food Festival, being hosted by Yantra from 23rd to 26th November, 2017.
Anyone who loves North-Indian food, would be familiar with Yantra by Hemant Oberoi. The chic fine dining Indian restaurant in Tanglin Mall serves some of the finest Northern Indian Cuisine in Singapore. With its fine balance of contemporary and classic Indian food, Yantra presents an array of tastes and flavours in its signature dishes.
A Treat of the Seven Sisters: North-East Indian Food Festival by Yantra
Date – 23rd to 26th Nov, 2017
Time – 6:30pm to 10:30 pm
Venue – Yantra by Hemant Oberoi, Tanglin Mall
Join in as Yantra hosts a A Treat of the Seven Sisters for four nights, for dinner only from 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM, 23rd – 26th November. Promising a gastronomic delight, there are vegetarian dishes on the festival menu too, for the vegetarians out there! To stay apprised of the festival details, you can check out Yantra’s Facebook page here.
The North-Eastern region of India is a place referred to as the Seven Sisters. This encompasses one of the densest populations of tribalism and brings with it their culinary arts. This is the first time Yantra is hosting a festival such as this, taking a keen interest in making the experience as authentic as possible. Hemant Oberoi and a specialty chef from India will helm the festival.
What’s on Offer
The specially desgined menu for the festival is pork and beef-free, with vegetarian options available. Vegetarians can expect to sample dishes such as Singju which is a typical Manipur salad-type dish with Yongchak (also known as bitter bean or twisted cluster bean), lotus stem, chick peas and fenugreek leaves. Other veg dishes on offer include Petu ekung (Mustard leaves with bamboo shoot and burnt green chilli), Ahengu ngo Nappa khulo (Pumpkin curry cooked with wild lemon basil) and Yeghe kiba (Rosella flower cooked with fresh yam). Finish on a sweet note with a classic North-east Indian dessert, Chak-hao dessert or Black Rice Pudding.
In the interest of making the festival as authentic as possible, Yantra has really paid attention to details – ingredients such as the Naga Viper Pepper and Rosella flowers are being especially flown in for the occasion. While the Rosella flower is known for its health benefits (it is said to prevent cancer, and helps people with hypertension, heart disease and osteoporosis etc); the Naga Viper Pepper is known as one of the spiciest chillis in the world. So chilli lovers, get ready to challenge your spice levels! In fact, diners will receive a Naga Viper Pepper as souvenir.
As one of the restaurants on the Best Restaurants lists of Wine and Dine Singapore, Singapore Tatler, The Miele Guide and having received the notable Epicurean Star Award for the Best Restaurant Concept (Asian) in 2011, we definitely hope this should be a meal you’ll appreciate.
So dine at Yantra by Hemant Oberoi next week and go on a culinary journey accross the North-Eastern India.
