Amar mahal Orchha hosted an exclusive lunch for the special guests from Spain.  The lunch was the first of a kind of mouth-watering lunch menu amid the exquisite settings in the gardens of Amar Mahal. At this jovial lunch, our Spaniard guests had the opportunity to experience local cuisines of Bundelkhand alongside continental food and spend time with the hosts. The lunch commenced in the beautiful gardens of Amar Mahal where guests enjoyed the scrumptious platter amid the refreshing weather of Orchha.

Diners were served in customized lounges with opulent décor. The tables were dressed with crisp white cloths and table tops with refreshing flowers. The entire setup was looking magnificent due to the added backdrop of historic monuments and Amar Mahal.

Each of the guests from Spain was truly delighted by the meticulous and delectable lunch arrangements at Amar Mahal Orchha.

Orchha is a slumber yet intriguing town of Bundelkhand in Madhya Pradesh that can be best explored at an unhurried pace. We suggest that you hire a bicycle and take a ride alongside  its quiet and steep roads within the woods or countryside.


Or if you are in no mood to ride a bicycle, request a car drive at your hotel and  idle by the Betwa River on Kanchan Ghat which is only 10-min walk from the main town.  Watching the sun dropping behind the 14 chattris of the Bundelas that stand proudly alongside the river is an experience beyond mesmerizing.

These multi-level chhatris, open from 10.00 am to 05.00 pm, are built on high, square platforms, that you can climb to the top of via a narrow, roughly hewn staircase and enjoy a breathtaking view of the surroundings. These cenotaphs are larger than Rajput chhatris, and in spite of minimalistic detailed carvings or decorative flourishes, they attract the beholders for their massive structure.


Even after spending hours in the city of cenotaphs – Orchha you would realize that Orchha is the land of enigma—a kind of unpredictable land caught between legendary fictions and unbelievable facts. Here, on the boulder-strewn banks of the Betwa, the wildlife of Madhya Pradesh is fascinating, and the Gods come down to meet their devouts every evening.

For a delightful stay in orchha visit


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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 🙂
