Tresind’s 2016 Winter Menu is a Christmas Gift for the Entire Family

By now all those who know me or follow me, they know how much my family and I love Tresind! We have been here over 20 times since it has opened and it has definitely been an important part for all our celebrations. So when I was invited to try their Winter Menu, you can imagine how much I was looking forward to trying their new dishes.

I will save you all the long descriptions and get straight to it because every dish we had was A – star! By now we all know, Chef Himanshu and his entire team have magic in their hands. Whatever he cooks up is unique and has the most mouth-watering blend of flavors and these new dishes were as amazing as all his previous creations. This time however, a LOT of the dishes were half made live in front of you which made the experience even better. So getting right down it it, below is all that we had.

We were greeted with the Aroma Cleanser which is a nitrogen smoke whiffing up a velvety scent and I think relaxes you completely. After that came the famous Deconstructed Pani Puri which is made live in front of you where their chef puts dollops of mint and sweet chutneys in nitrogen cold water so they become bubbles which are served on spoons with a few puffed gram flour balls and are supposed to be had in one gulp. It honestly is one of the most delicious Amuse Bouche’s I have ever had!

Pav Salsa ย (complimentary) – 2 mini lightly toasted buns come on a tray which is full of smaller condiments with which an Indian styled Salsa is made right in front of you. The ingredients are ground while your hungry eyes watch and once the process is done you can top the buns with the salsa and it’s the most beautiful burst of flavours. A bit spicy, it tastes like a Mexican salsa puree would with a burst of Indian flavors.



Ragda Pattice – Banarasi Aloo Papad, White Pea Guacamole โ€˜Ragda Pattice’ ( V ) AED 90 – What a unique idea! Potato papads served on a ragda instead of the traditional pattice. This blew me away and i was more than happy to find chunks of potato inside. It was absolutely delish and i could have never imagined there was another way to have a Delhi favorite any other way!


Vegetable Lamb Chops – Lotus Stem Kebab Chops, Raw Mango & Green Chili Chutney ( V ) AED 110 – Woah! HOW! Perfectly delectable, this “chop” of vegetables had a lotus stem at the end of it and was served with an insanely delicious chutney.


The Burrata – Baked Burrata Salad, Coriander Pesto, Tomato Shorba Essence ( V ) AED 105 – What a combination! It was one of the finest burrata’s i have ever had and that tomato essence sprayed on the salad was ingenious! The pesto was not at all overpowering because i am not a big fan generally and the luscious burrata was light and can be a light meal in itself.

Paneer Sizzler – Tandoori Paneer Tikka Sizzler, Smoked Paprika Sauce ( V ) ( J ) AED 110 – The softest paneer chunks marinated in a delectable manner came in a small sizzler pan. Smoked Paprika Sauce was poured over it to further enhance it’s flavour. All paneer fans need to have this!


Beerbal Ki Khichdi – Beerbal Ki Khichdi, Several Accompaniments ( V ) ( J ) AED 120 – Made with 50 ingredients, this was the BEST khichdi I have ever had! It comes as a pre-made masala khichdi but the condiments are all put and stirred in front of you and all you can think of is, OK SERIOUSLY! IS THAT EVEN GOING TO TASTE GOOD? And guess what! It tastes AMAZING!!! Every bite brings in a burst of a new ingredient making it taste out of this world!

Grilled Baby Corn – Remember the cold in India and standing in front of a cart that serves hot bhuttas?ย Known as ‘bhutta’ or ‘Makkaai’ in Hindi, corn is a winterย time favorite in India. “Bhuttawallah’s” or the corn vendor goes around the streets of Mumbai with his wooden cart stocked high with fresh bhuttas. He has a coal stove atop the wooden cart. And that experience is exactly what Tresind had brought to you in a miniature form. A mini coal stove on which baby corn’s are grilled in front of you and once done are plated with the most beautiful lemon butter sauce. It’s an experience you have to witness and the end result will blow your mind!

For main course I had a Mixed Vegetable Gravy with Zaatar Naan and it reminded me of my mother’s cooking ๐Ÿ™‚

For desserts we had Jalebi, Sweet Paratha, Mille Feuille, Pannacotta. Each and every dessert will make you only wonder how the combination of so many little ingredients are whipped up to create magic!

Cheeni ka Paratha, Salted Caramel, Scrambled Milk ( V ) ( J ) AED 70 – This is one heavy dessert and for those who love sweet paratha’s they will love this!


Ghevar Mille Feuille, Pistachio Mousse, Rose Sorbet ( V ) ( J ) AED 80 – Just look at how beautiful that looks! When French meets Indian, love is born! The tanginess of raspberries with the sweet mousse was mouth watering and theย Ghevar was not too sweet.ย Ghevar is a Rajasthani sweet traditionally associated with an Indian Festival. It is disc-shaped sweet made with all-purpose flour and soaked in sugar syrup. There are many varieties of Ghevar, including plain, mawa and malai ghevar.

Ghee Roast Kataifi Pastry, Dulce Panna Cotta, Saffron Gel โ€˜Sheer Kormaโ€™ ( V ) ( J ) AED 75 – I really don’t know how to put the deliciousness of this dessert in words. It was the softest kind of pannacotta I have come across and I loved how it looked like a fried egg.


Traditional Jalebi ( V ) ( J ) (per 100 gm) AED 50 – Simple but amazing jalebi’s were served in a weighing scale and you can actually measure how much you want and are charged accordingly ๐Ÿ™‚ Brilliant!


For drinks we let the bartendar decide and he came up with the 2 most delicious looking and tasting drinks! Mine was non alcoholic and my husbands was with alcohol.

Each and every dish is a treat and a true culinary experience. Your tastebuds will be taken on a joy ride and will not be disappointed even one bit!

Tresind offers a one of a kind experience, that will tease your taste-buds, engage you visually and change any preconceived notions youโ€™ve ever had about the Indian cuisine.
