Experience an Evening of Colours, Flavours and Bollywood Magic at Babur’s first-ever Holi Celebration

Embrace the joy, vibrancy and flavours of Holi, the famous festival of colour at Babur, South East London’s multi-award winning culinary gem. The Indian restaurant in Forest Hill is holding its first ever Holi party on Wednesday 8th March.

The evening will be held in Babur’s Rajasthani marquee with a three-course feast. Executive chef Jiwan Lal and sous chef Praveen Kumar Gupta have created a limited-edition menu that pays homage to some of the more traditional Holi dishes you’d experience in India. The menu will be available until 31st March.

Start the evening with a pop of colour on your face as you make your way into the marquee for dinner. You’ll be welcomed with a radiant Holi Heh tipple- a combination of three cocktail shooters, each blending bold flavours that can be mixed together or enjoyed on their own! 

Menu highlights include starters of clove-smoked Welsh lamb – a dish from Lucknow, the heart of Nawabi cooking; tangy Punjabi sweet potato and pomegranate in salted pastry; and Kalaunji chicken, a popular dish in Mumbai made with black onion seed-flavoured chargrilled chicken. 

Continue the spice trail with a Northern Indian Holi dish of lemon sole rolled with spiced prawn and red pepper sauce; Punjabi lamb knuckles with green pepper and steamed rice; and Bharma aloo, inspired by the holy city of Varanasi that celebrates Holi with vegetarian dishes. 

To top it all off, tuck into the saffron malpua, a festive dessert quartet with a sweet pancake, white chocolate rabdi, orange candy and a forest berry coulis. 

Guests will be entertained throughout the night with performances by stunning dance troupe Bollywood Vibes.

Tickets to this special event cost £50 and include a welcome Holi cocktail and three-course menu.
