Devraj Niwas- Home for delightful choices of breakfast for our guests

26 09 2016

Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. In India, some eat parathas or poha with curd and pickle and some prefer going for fruits, juices and cereals. At Devraj Niwas, we serve various kinds of breakfast ranging from Indian to American to our in-house guests. The breakfast hours are, however, fixed from 7 am to 10 am.  So, let’s take a walk to see what all kinds of breakfast we offer:

1. Continental Breakfast

Right after you wake up, take a stroll around and enjoy the morning with some scrumptious continental breakfast. From juices to sandwiches, morning continental breakfast can be taken up in many ways. At Devraj Niwas, you can choose between various juices like Orange, Pineapple or Tomato and toast with jam or marmalade (fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits) applied on it. Doesn’t it sound yum?

2. Indian Breakfast

If you would love some light Indian breakfast then Poha is a must try with maybe curd or tea. But if you are one of those who want the breakfast to be really heavy, then stuffed paratha with pickle or curd would be great for you. And adding some Punjabi touch to it by having a glass full of lassi would also do. And trust us, after this your stomach would have no hunger pangs till lunch.

3. South Indian Breakfast

As we all know that South India is famous for its coconuts. So, how can we not have yummy coconut chutney in breakfast? Having idli and vada with sambhar and mixing the coconut chutney in it changes its taste completely. You have an option of going for Uppma which is again a great option for a comparatively lighter breakfast.

4. American Breakfast

How do you like your eggs, Monsieur? Boiled, fried, poached, omelette or scrambled; choose from these and we will get you the tastiest of your favorite egg dish. You can also add it on the toast. Just in case, you are not a fan of eggs then you can layer up the toast with jam or marmalade; have juices or cereals with hot/ cold milk.

Having your favorite cocktail but are you having it in the right glass?

23 08 2016

Through old times, cocktail has been served in a particular manner. There is always a right glass for the right drink but with changing times of mix and match, this trend has also changed.

Come let us help you identify some of the glasses that are commonly used although now alternatives come in various shapes and sizes.

1. Wine glass As the name suggests, these glasses are typically made to serve wine in them. The long stick at the end is what one is supposed to hold so that the drink doesn’t warm up quickly. This holds a typical volume of 250 to 300 ml / 8.8 to 10.6 Oz.

2. Margarita glass– This Margarita bearer is also called as a “cocktail glass”. These glasses carry a volume of 250 ml / 8.8 Oz which are again to be held from the stick.

Cosmopolitan

 

3. Champagne flute– The slim elegant glass holds a capacity of 200 ml / 7.0 Oz of best quality champagne. The tall shape of the glass prevents the drink from going flat too fast. Also, it prevents the bubbles from rising upwards giving the best visual effects.

4. Martini glass– Also called as “Martini Saucer” makes the drink look royal. Martini can be poured in it easily due to the broad opening but this may even cause you problem on the dance floor where it can easily spill out. It can carry a volume of 250ml / 8.8 Oz.

Blue Lagoon

 

5. Shot glass The drinks in these glasses are supposed to be swallowed in a single gulp. They are small glasses with a little capacity of 25 ml or 50 ml / 0.9 to 1.8 Oz.

6. Brandy snifter– Known by other names also such as goblet or balloon due to the shape of the glass. Fine quality brandy is poured in to the widest area of the glass. Large surface area allows the aroma of the contents to rise and be concentrated at the narrow mouth for maximum effect. It can carry a volume of 350 ml / 12.3 Oz.
