IMG-20170311-WA0008

Holi is the most awaited Indian festival celebrated throughout the country with lots of zest and enthusiasm. Revelry is no less in Madhya Pradesh and same level of enthusiasm can be seen among the citizens of this state as in the rest of North. Of particular significance the festivity of Holi is rather special in Bundelkhand! The fervor of colours and merrymaking remains continuously for five days at Ram Raja Temple. The last day is called Panchami Holi. The tradition has its historic roots. It is said that the Maratha Holkars who conquered the state brought with them Marathi tradition of Rangpanchami- where the colours are played on the fifth day.

“Pause and take a Deep Breath

Walk where the life is slow but offers plenty of peace”

While visiting Orchha, there is something for all; be it an adventure enthusiast, a foodie, a pilgrim or a leisure traveler, Orchha is a fabulous destination to enjoy vacations. But despite so many options at hand, the search is on where could one get that feel of true essence of India?

Real India can be witnessed only by visiting the various villages that even today give the glimpse of age-old culture and traditions in utter tranquility.

If you are still wondering where to go to experience Village life and want to witness it from the close corners then there is no need to worry anymore as when you stay at Amar Mahal Orchha, we take our guests to a half day tour to none other than but our own village where our roots still exist.

Situated around 26 Km from Orchha, the village JER is the right place to experience the life of India’s villagers. As you pass through the green verdant land to reach the place under the vast open blue skies; you realize that you are heading towards your dream destination that will take you back to the good and old memories of the rural India read in books or seen in Bollywood movies. With clean and clear rows of houses and streets; this village will give you a lifetime opportunity to feel the aura of Indian rural life that are even today preserved by its locals with a promise of future as well.

Just before you enter into the village there is Garhi- a beautifully renovated farmhouse where our guests can sit and relax amidst the green oasis against the backdrop of a hill. Roam around, enjoy the beautiful garden, witness the charming and uniquely painted temple, give your ears to the melodious chirping of birds and finally allow yourself to leave behind the chaos of city life. And then get refreshed before you head to experience the real rural like at its most pure.

The beauty of traveling through the world is to enjoy things that bring you joy. For some, it is adventure or an excursion or may be shopping or some just want to hit the town and get lost, especially, when the place is like Orchha! I is one destination where you want to forgo your maps. But there are many who savor local flavors while travelling and focus on exploring traditional and authentic cuisines of the place, Isn’t it? While travelling to this region of Budelkhand it is obvious for us to learn about people’s taste and what they eat.

img_3232

Typically to taste local cuisine of any region, street stalls and markets are the best way to go but the food safety is a major concern for many. But relax, when you are at Amar Mahal, Orchha there is a way for safe, delicious and authentic Bundelkhandi feast served right on your table without hunting anywhere else.

We are glad to introduce to you our Master Chef Tulsi Das who has designed a tantalizing Bundelkhandi menu for the food aficionados in Orchha.

chef

Allow us to share some unexplored flavors of Bundelkhand directly from the kitchen of Amar Mahal 🙂  Though there are plenty of delicacies in this region but these few stand apart.

Bada– Bada is made up of soaked and grind lentils with added salt, red chilli and cumin seeds to it. The batter is tapped on hand before it is deep-fried. The crispy thin bada’s are then soaked in water for some time. Unlike north Indian Dahi Bada instead of curd here buttermilk is used to put Bada’s giving it a liquefied look.

bada

Baigan Ka Bhartha– Though a common preparation in every household Bundelkhandi Baigan Ka Bhartha is special with its smoky flavor. This simple and tasty preparation of mashed aubergines cooked in less oil tempered with cumin seeds, bit of onion, garlic, green chilies, and tomato tastes really amazing.

img_5106

Mattha Ki Arvi– Yogurt and buttermilk is the major ingredient of Bundelkhandi food. In a hot country like India where stomach bugs were easy to pick up, yogurt acted as an ancient antibiotic.

matte-ki-arvi

img_3253

Dahi ki arvi tempered with cumin seeds, whole red chili is an awesome, delicious and healthy recipe.

KadulaPoori is one such dish that has travelled the length and breadth of India and we all enjoy this without any guilt. There are many different kinds of Pooris and Kadula is its Bundelkhandi version, which is prepared on special occasions. The dough made up of flour, urad dal powder and salt is used to make the dough. The dough is then made to small balls and rolled out in small flat circles with a rolling pin, and then fried in hot vegetable oil. These deep-fried kadulas taste out of the world.

img_3237

Pulao– Basically a rice preparation Bundelkhandi ’Pulao’ is made up with added vegetables (Potato, Carrot, onion, beans) but no spices except salt and Tej patta for aroma. The uniqueness of the entire affair is in the freshness and authenticity of the ingredients used.

With just the look of it one would want to have it immediately 🙂

Non-vegetarians don’t lose your heart, Bundelkhandi food is never complete without Bundelkhandi Gosht/Chicken.

img_5064

Bundelkhandi Gosht- This is a local Bundelkhandi delicacy of tender lamb pieces cooked in a thick red onion gravy and coarsely ground species.

Bundelkhandi Chicken – A light chicken curry cooked with tomatoes and fresh coriander.

If your mouth is watering already, this is just right time to go grab your mouthful of heaven at Amar Mahal, Orchha 🙂
