Aroma Food Junction, Hansol, Ahmedabad: Food
This restaurant has a predictable range of North Indian and Indianised Chinese starters, most of which are pretty good. The makhmali mushroom, malai paneer and pudina paneer tikka are pretty good, and the tandoori platter is a good-sized sharing plate with assorted Indian starters. I liked their tandoori aloo.
While they have the ubiquitous selection of North Indian, Chinese, baked dishes and sizzlers, this is one of the few restaurants that has a Sindhi section.The aloo tuk has well-seasoned deep-fried potatoes sliced into rounds, and for those who do not eat potatoes they also have Aarbi tuk with sliced taro root vegetable.
Seyal aloo bhindi is their house special, and they also have a seyal paneer,which can be enjoyed with their super-soft mani (Sindhi style roti). Seyal mani is a one-dish meal that has rotis cooked in a green gravy with tomatoes and other ingredients till it gets a soft and slightly mushy texture. Sometimes they have the Sindhi kadhi which is a besan-based kadhi that uses a profusion of seasonal vegetables whole or cut in chunks. This can be paired with their seyal chawal.
Since Aroma Junction opens fairly early by about 9.30 am, their breakfast special is koki a fried wheat flour flat bread, paired with curd but I did not try this as I was there at lunchtime.
If you are here between meals, they have a good choice of sandwiches – I liked the filling of the soya panini, specially as not many cafes have soya options on the menu. The restaurant also has combo meals like puri-chana. You can also have tea, coffee or one of their mocktails here.
Plus & Minus:
This restaurant is conveniently situated at Indira Bridge Circle, handy for those who want a meal or snack near the Airport or when travelling between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. They also offer packed meals for passengers to carry on board. The snacks and mains are fairly good, and this is also one of the few restaurants with a few Sindhi dishes on the menu.
