Food is usually not our Tuesday feature, but when we are starting your fave series " Women at Their culinary Best" who really cares what day of the week it really is. After all, some yum preparation, by someone who is a President awardee is more than enough to revive you from your Tuesday tasks at your workstation!

" I was born and brought up in Thailand. Right from childhood days I had enjoyed the street food thetr. And, since I myself was a foodie, I did not mind experimenting.Post my marriage, I shifted to India, and that to in Delhi in early 80's. That was the time when eating out in India was going through changes. Chinese and Thai were the new flavours then. In fact, Thai was known to just a few, who had been to Thailand."
So, first in the line was Yum Mamuang. We will simplify it for you, it's a quick mango salad for summer season. Quick for Arora, not for a laywoman, we guess. When you see Arora at work, you realize why culinary art is a gift, and how this art transforms an ordinary-looking mango, onion, lettuce, and peanuts in a dish that looks so mouth-watering!

Later, we had a look at the restaurant where we had our lunch with their PR head. It was interesting to know that the restaurant took good seven years in getting ready. Don't wonder because you see the reflection of the hard work, and above all the beautiful concept - Thai and Oriental food, in each corner. And, guess what? You are after all in good hands, as Chef Arora is there to satiate your taste buds!!
