How It All Began!
Years ago, on the streets of meerut, chef sanjeev kapoor chanced upon a yellow chilli amidst a plethora of green and red chillies. As food connoisseurs are aware, meerut is the melting pot of unique chaats. The special yellow chilli spice mix the chaatwalas use here adds that extra zing and brings together a confluence of flavours, aroma and colour. With one bite of the yellow chilli, an idea was born. His restaurant, the yellow chilli came into being! The first yellow chilli was launched in 2001, and today there are around 80 (functional and upcoming included) outlets spread across india and abroad too.
Interesting aspect of The Yellow Chilli is that, it celebrates every major Indian festival with a unique, complimentary dessert and boasts of a Maharaja Meal – a special 6 course unlimited menu served during working lunch hours. It’s incredible India all the way here!
Be it the signature Tomato Basil Shorba (Westernised desi tamatar ka soup), Shaam Savera (spinach koftas stuffed with cottage cheese on a bed of luscious tomato gravy), Lalla Mussa Dal (kali dal simmered for 36 hours) or Gulab-e-Gulkand (rose petal compote stuffed gulab jamuns), the dishes are simply delicious and innovative!
