Royal Cuisine from the kitchen of the Peshwas: “Thali Lunch”
Start Date
07 September 2021, 12:00 am

Dear Member,

Over the years, IIC has brought to its Members a range of Royal Cuisines from the kitchens of the Bhonsles (Nagpur), the Gaekwads (Baroda), the Holkars (Indore) and the Scindias (Gwalior).

From Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s coronation in 1674 until 1818, the powerful Maratha Confederacy dominated a large part of the Indian subcontinent. The Peshwas, the prime ministers of the Confederacy, were its de facto rulers and, under Peshwa influence, Maharashtrian food developed into an elegant, delicious, wholesome and extremely healthy cuisine.

This year, as part of the Ganesh Chaturthi Festival, IIC serves the Royal Cuisine from the Kitchens of the Peshwas of Pune. Specially curated by Smt. Hema Devare and Shri Suhas Borker, members of the Maharashtra Sanskritik ani Rannaniti Adhyayan Samiti, this sumptuous meal has been prepared by the  former Executive Chef to the President of India, Machindra Kasture, and  IIC Executive Chef Vijay Thukral.

To maintain social distancing protocols, a special lunch will be served as Pre-plated Thali, with one serving of dessert, during lunch hours (1230 hrs to 1445 hrs), on Friday, 10th September 2021.  Interested Members are requested to make an advance booking with the Dining Hall (011-24609374, 24609472 or WhatsApp at 9910333937). Members can also email their booking requests to  Please note that reservations will be made on a first-come-first-served basis. Restrictions on the number of guests accompanying a Member have been eased. Special arrangements will be made to accommodate large groups. All necessary arrangements for social distancing and sanitisation will be strictly adhered to.

Please note that the cancellation of bookings after 1700 hrs on 9th September 2021 will not be entertained.

Thanking you,
yours sincerely,

Kanwal Wali
