When I saw the presentation of this appetizer, it took me back to an era. Chuda Ghugni is a staple snack from Bihar and It is made with flattened rice (chuda) and a curry of dried yellow peas (ghugni). The crunch of the Chuda and the spice of ghugni just water my mouth just by thinking of it. It is a must-try when you visit Jugni. 

2.Avocado Mathri Chaat:

Moving on to the next appetizer, using avocado in a chaat is an innovative take on classic street food was a spectacular idea for me. It brings a modern and healthy element to the dish, while still staying true to the spirit of chaat cuisine. The combination of crispy mathri, creamy avocado, and tangy chaat masala creates a delightful interplay of textures and flavors. 

3.Beetroot Peanut Chop

4.Murg Mango malai

6.The Chicken Butter Masala

Now coming to the main course, my first choice would be this dish! And yes it was cooked and served to perfection. To counter the richness of the spices and cream in the Chicken Butter Masala, the dish was garnished with fresh herbs, adding a pop of freshness and vibrancy. 

7.Veg Seekh Masala:

For all vegetarian food lovers, this one is smooth and velvety gravy infused with cream for richness, balanced by a touch of a delightful tang. 

8.Hemp Heart Roti:

Surprised by the name? Trust me, you will spiral down the sweet memories of your life with every bite you take. To end the delicious journey of my lunch I ordered up this one! It is made with chenna dumplings steeped in sugar syrup, infused with the rich and robust aroma of coffee. The soft and spongy texture of the rasgullas is accentuated by the silky smooth caramel sauce.
