Relishus Powai | Authentic Food By Home Chefs | Food Review

We are living in midst of a food revolution,harbinger of good times for foodies and chefs alike. So why should Chefs' talent be limited to restaurants alone?

This was something I was thinking about some years ago too-if there could be a service to ensure that home chefs could present their talent directly to foodies without opening a restaurant. Well, one way is by producing products like Jams, Jellies, Cookies, Bread etc. and tie up with local grocery chains or brands like Godrej Nature's Basket to market them. Other way is to prepare fresh,authentic, home cooked food and get it delivered for lunch or dinner to hungry foodies via a service like Relishus :)

I had the honor of tasting some offerings by some passionate home chefs for lunch. Food came freshly prepared in secure, microwavable containers with stickers proclaiming which chef prepared what. Multi-cuisine dishes prepared by chefs with decades of experience, passion and traditional kitchen secrets is what we get.

We started with Matar Mangodi with Roti by Chef Nikita Agarwal = Peas and Badi in lipsmacking gravy with plain Rotis, went wonderfully together and made me remember my nani's cooking. Gravy was a bit spicier than I like, but it is because naturally I tend towards sweeter things, not because of any shortcoming in the gravy itself :)

Vegetarian Coconut Chutney by Home Chef

Vegetable Stew with Appam and Coconut Chutney + Rasa Vada by Chef Malini Balkrishnan = Stew was coconut based and it could be a bit thicker, Appams could have been softer but still somehow this worked nicely together. The chutney was amazing, my office colleagues sort of jumped on it :D I loved the soft and fluffy Rasa Vada!

Delicious Best Mysore Pak in Mumbai

Moong Dal Halwa, Kala Jamun and Mysore Pak by Chef Rajesh Kumar Daga = Delicious desserts tasting just the way they are supposed to. My boss is a big fan of Moong Dal Halwa and she actually finished it off, I got barely a spoon and it was fantastic. So dense, also overflowing with oil, calorie counters stay away :P Mysore Pak was outstanding, I have had some versions where it is too sweet or dripping with ghee, thankfully this one was restrained. Kala Jamun, again soul satisfying :)

The desserts here are so good all us office colleagues ordered for them again the very next day to take home and will be doing so at least once a week now on!

Relishus is a beautiful link between talented chefs and eager foodies, I am looking forward to trying more from their rotating menu at their Website or Zomato :)

    1. Hi Indu, this service is in Mumbai right now, I don't know if they have plans to expand to other cities or not. I don't think Kota has any such service as of now, but I am sure, thanks to the current food revolution, there would soon be :) Keep tuned!
