Indulge your taste for rich fall flavors with this autumnal menu that draws inspiration from the changing season but still manages to be bright and colorful. We’ll have a silky cauliflower velouté served with fried lentils, toasted hazelnuts, and pomegranate seeds to start, followed by crisp lentil croquettes studded with fresh fava beans and served alongside a herbal and piquant chutney made out of the skins of ridge gourd. As a nod to fleeing summer. we’ll have pan-roasted cherry tomatoes served with creamy fresh ricotta, khakhara, and a vibrant ginger chutney. Next is pan-roasted salmon perched over grilled summer squash and a savory yogurt sauce spiked with curry leaves and warm spices. And for dessert, save room for our version of kesari bhath, which we turn into a warm polenta pudding mounted with creme fraiche and served with roasted fall fruit.
