Joining the trend of cloud kitchens and home delivery services, Ambuja Neotia – the pioneer in hospitality services in Kolkata has introduced Indie Yum, the 100% vegetarian cloud kitchen with an extensive menu encompassing most of the popular Indian regional dishes and Continental (primarily Italian) dishes.
No wonder the food platter that they sent me for tasting & review was good enough for a King’s table!
Packed in an array of secured lidded and labelled containers, they sent me – 1 Soup, 3 Appetizers, 4 Staples and 4 Main Course dishes along with the accompanying Raita, Dip, Chutney and Salad.
The total items that adorned my dining table were –
– Soup –
– Mushroom Cream: Their signature dish was a concoction of Italian porcini mushroom and button mushroom.
It was a filling and feel-good soup. A must-try dish, specially during the ongoing winters
– Appetizers –
– Veg & Cheese Cigars: It comprised of chargrilled veg & cheese rolled with rice sheet wrapper, also known as cigari borek that originated in Eastern Europe and western Asia.
It came with the instruction to be paired with the accompanying Spicy Tomato Dip.
The dish tasted yum. But it’s best to consume it immediately upon arrival.
– Dahi Ke Kabab: Made of hung curd, paneer, corn flour, onion, garlic and a mélange of spices, the kebabs though had a crispy texture, they were soft from inside.
They came with the instruction to be served with the accompanying Burnt Mango Chutney.
The combo tasted good.
– Batata Harra: It was a sauce rich and spicy Lebanese dish made up baby potatoes, coriander, garlic and chilli. It came with Pita bread.
The dish was new and tasted excellent.

The sabji was extra spicy but good.

It tasted nice.
