Exclusive vegetarian restaurant Royal Vega presents seasonal menu based on Ayurvedic principles Shishir Ritu Menu

Kolkata/NITN: Royal Vega, the exclusive vegetarian restaurant located in Kolkata's premium luxury hotel ITC Royal Bengal, specialises in recreating food from the former royal kitchens of India.

These kitchens were known to use raw ingredients, such as crops, fruits and vegetables, which were available round the year and those which were available seasonally.

To ensure that the food was both tasty and helped in immunity building, the cooks would refer to the principles of Ayurveda (ancient India's body of knowledge on health); they would also keep the prevailing season in mind.

With Kolkata now experiencing the 'shishir ritu' or the season marked by cold and dew, Royal Vega is offering a special menu which contains dishes that draw upon seasonal vegetables.

Menu highlights include Kadali Kofta (raw banana marbles simmered in fresh tomato gravy delicately spiced with dry fenugreek), Gucchi Pudina (a combination of fresh Himalayan morels and fresh mint ), Shahiphal Sandesh (a layered sandesh) and seasonal fruits wrapped with rabri.

The Shishir Ritu Menu is available until March 14 this year as a set menu pegged at Rs 2,250 plus tax; a la carte portions are available on request.

Royal Vega is open for dinner from 77.30pm to 10pm.
