High Tea India style
If afternoon tea in town conjures up images of fine bone china and
dry scones, then think again. Indian afternoon tea offered at the Taj
Samudra's Khao Galli promotion is a rich and fragrant affair giving
guests the chance to sample some of the most delicious cuisine. The menu
comprises Indian street food and a choice of masala infused Chai tea or
Chaas - a buttermilk preparation.
Diners can indulge in Indian street foods such as Pao Bhadji to
Paprei Chaat, sweet Golgappe and much more. Teas come from the
traditional menus of Darjeeling, Ceylon and Jasmine, but for a chilled
beverage option, Chaas is the way forward. Afternoon tea lovers can also

a caramelized pineapple cooked with semolina to a smooth succulent
If you haven't sat for Indian high tea before, it's about time you
do. There's not a lot more pleasant than sipping a chilli chai and
nibbling on typical sweet and savoury snacks like mutton samosa and
chicken Pakoras in the afternoon. Sit back and enjoy a spectacular
Colombo sunset by the pool, while the specialty chefs from New Delhi
whip you up the best comfort foods there ever was.
This promotion is on till March 25.
