Chicken Cutlet, Lamb mince with potato patty, Corn
croquette, Kachori (vegetarian puff) all served with mint chutney. Fruit
salad bowl. Mango shrikhand dessert.
Catered by "Veeraswamy of Piccadilly",
the leading Indian restaurant in Britain. Extremely tasty and a perfect
snack prior to a midnight arrival. Only drawback was the plastic cutlery
used on all USA routes because the flight had started off in Chicago.
A shame because everything is served on elegant custom-designed Royal
Doulton bone china.
Coconut water, followed by mineral water, and
Delightful meal. The fruit was really fresh
and the papaya was ripe and sweet. Bread roll could have been fresher.
The butter was refrigerated and a bit hard, but nonetheless tasted of
typical amul butter. Chicken tikka overly heated, therefore got a bit
dehydrated and lost a bit of its' flavour in the bargain. The vegetarian
kebabs were regular, and were more potato than vegetable based. The prawns
were terrific. This preparation has always been an Air-India original,
and prepared/catered only from Mumbai. The accompanied chutneys were good
too. The mango mousse the best I've had on board. Wasn't too sweet and
tasted of real alphonso mangoes. It was sprinkled with chopped pistachios,
which gave it an all the more exotic look. I have always been impressed
with Air-India's on board service, and they didn't disappoint this time
either. One small observation, their designer tea cups have become smaller,
and now resemble a slightly oversized espresso cup. Cost cutting??
