Maharaja Bhog – Indulge in the Royal Feast

Maharaja Bhog located in Hurontario St, Mississauga is the place to go if you think about indulging in an absolute Indian feast and this place would probably need no promotion. This place serves authentic Rajasthani and Gujarati Thali, which will delight your taste palates with flavourful and tasty food.

This place is a newly opened restaurant in the GTA region and is located in a rather small complex. The decor and the interiors do not give you a traditional Rajasthani ambience but are rich enough. We were greeted with a smile by the staff taking our names for the waitlist. We waited for close to 45 minutes for the seats to be assigned but trust me every second was worth it. We went on an empty stomach and travelled quite a few kilometres after an intense session of Badminton, so the 45 minutes did not matter much.

More than the food, the star of the show according to me was the people who prepared the delicious food and the people who served it with no sign of tiredness despite being thronged by the crowd there. What I saw in those close to 2 hours of the visit was the enthusiastic staff who wanted to serve the patrons which according to me is an encouraging sign for a restaurant.

All the dishes were fantastic and filled with heavenly taste. This is a treat for Gujarati and Rajasthani food lovers. The menu in this restaurant keeps changing. Some of the standard options on the menu would be Roti, poori, Daal Khichdi, Rice, Rajasthani Dal, Dhokla, and Gujarati Dal. One of the softest and fresh Dhoklas that we have had. The rotis and pooris were served hot and straight from the kitchen. The masala chas ensured that the digestive juices kept flowing and the icing on the cake. None of the food was too spicy or overladen with masala. Here is a list of dishes we enjoyed.

Vada Dahi Chat: This stole our hearts. This is an appetizer consisting of deep-fried soft lentil fritters soaked in Dahi (yogurt) with chutneys and spices to make it a chat. This seems to be a rather simple dish but it was sumptuous.

Rajma Masala: Rajma masala is a popular Indian dish made from kidney beans, onions, tomato, herbs and spices. This is a healthy and hearty dish. This was something we repeatedly filled up. It went really well with both rotis and rice.

Rajasthani Dal: The Rajasthani Dal was packed with flavour and proteins. This was the perfect comfort food for a cool rainy day. To enhance the experience, we paired Rajma Masala with rice and a side of crunchy churmuri papad.

Compromise Vs Satisfaction

At last…. Yes At last I am blogging on the most interesting battle that’s being fought so ferociously among the human race. There have always been one conflict or the other in the world like

1) Ram Vs Ravan

2) Peace Vs Terrorism

3) Non Violence Vs Violence.

In each of the above mentioned battles there is a clear differentiation between the good and the bad. But this battle between Compromise and Satisfaction is quite unique. Here, there is no clear demarcation about what is wrong or what is right. In this case, it is more about which is of lesser good or rather what aligns with the situation? This battle is pretty huge and something that needs a close attention is what i feel.

To what extent we can compromise to satisfy one’s need is something that has never been defined. Don’t you think that Mother Nature has compromised enough on her part to satisfy us all? How long she gonna bear all our torture. She has been removed of all the greens and covered with full of dirt and plastics. Have we not realized her fury even after she has expressed it through different means like Tsunami, quakes, famine etc. Don’t you think it’s high time we wake up and address these burning issues.

I was so much impressed with a particular segment in Avatar where Jake tells Eywa “These sky people destroyed all the greens in their world and has come now to do the same here.” bang on Mr. James Cameron. Well said. There can be no better insult to these greedy creatures. Someone said, “The world has enough for everyone’s needsbut not everyone’s greed,”. It’s so straight on our face. yet we continue to sleep rather hibernate.

Better late than never, the corporates and the educational institutes can play a bigger and better role in this mission. It is only through them that we can get back at least 10% of what we have lost so far. They have to understand that these humans can never get satisfied and get straight into action to save the earth for our future generation. Its already getting out of our hands . I hope the readers of this blog spread the need to go green and to plant few trees.

Few Compromises that we can do make our Mother Nature hale and healthy.

1) Use more of public transport.

2) Plant more trees

3) Use renewable source of energy.

4) Carry cloth bags to shops and avoid plastics.
