The restaurant consists of a premium dining area, a bar serving redefined Indian tapas dishes, along with a unique cocktail selection made from cutting-edge techniques. Simply put, be prepared for a gastronomic voyage.
WHAT’S THE MENU LIKE?
The cuisine, a synthesis of over 40 years of research and exploration across various Indian kitchens by
Jiggs Kalra himself, revolves around showcasing the diversity of our traditional fare, in a progressive way, with vibrant colours and a captivating blend of flavours. Using the freshest ingredients and spices the dishes are prepared from recipes originating from all across India. To retain authenticity, Kalra collaborated with renowned artisans from each region, ensuring every dish is meticulously prepared with traditional methods. Additionally, the menu also offers a separate, specifically designed vegetarian offering.
Incorporating post-molecular gastronomy as an integral part of its menu is one of the ethos of Masala Library. While the focus will always be on taste and authenticity, aspects of molecular gastronomy have been used to enhance the overall experience. The restaurant’s signature 12-course Tasting Menu is a must-try, involving sampling small portions of most dishes, accompanied by grape pairing. Some signature dishes include Deconstruction of Samosa, Chicken Tikka prepared three ways, Rajasthani Mutton Curry, Mushroom Chai and Jalebi Caviar, just to name a few.
