Shinzo Abe in Gujarat: 'Sushi-Dhokla', 'Sushi-Khichdi' might be part of hospitality menu
The finest and delicious varieties of traditional Indian and Japanese cuisine are expected to be part of the hospitality platter which would be served to Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe in the most unique style.

According to the food experts and chefs, the Indo-Japanese fusion dishes such as 'Sushi-Dhokla' and 'Sushi-Khichdi' will be served to the VVIP delegates apart from authentic cuisines of both countries.

To create these interesting fusion food items, the traditional Gujarati dishes would be given a Japanese twist. Kathiyawadi khichdi will be rolled as sushi and served with a Wasabi Espuma dip to make ‘Sushi-Khichadi. Like wise, for preparing ‘Sushi-Dhokla’, the traditional dhokla batter would be steamed in yaki nori sheets (made from seaweed and used for wrapping sushi).

“Miso soup, noodle soup, teriyaki fish, chicken yakitokri (a variety of skewered chicken), pork katsu curry, jasmine rice, sticky rice, tofu served in a variety of sauces and kappa maki sushi, among others, will be part of the menu at our hotel. Special Japanese bento boxes have been created for the delegates,” said a spokesperson from Courtyard by Marriot.

“Chef Yasuhiro Ohara from our hotel group in Japan, is specially visiting Ahmedabad for ten days to personally look into the delicacies prepared for the delegates,” said Sanjay Kaushik, general manager, Crowne Plaza, Ahmedabad.

For Japanese PM’s grand welcome, a finest range of non-vegetarian items such as caviar, red meat, lamb, varieties of fish, lobster and blue crab, among other sea foods have been imported from countries such as Australia, Dubai and New Zealand, among others.

Along with Japanese PM Abe, around 700 business delegates from Japan will be visiting Ahmedabad, where the 12th Indo-Japan Summit and business meet will be held.
