This Valentine’s Weekend, ADYA will be offering a Chai-phrodisiac Tea and specials laden with mood-boosting ingredients and aphrodisiac qualities meant to induce sensuality. The special dishes will highlight vegetables and proteins from the tandoor, finished with sultry spices like cumin, ginger, paprika, and coriander.
“Indian chai is often referred to ‘Lover’s Tea’ and has been noted for its exotic blend of spices – namely, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger – all known aphrodisiacs,” commented Executive Chef Shachi Mehra, who offers both a traditional hot chai and unique iced chai at her Anaheim restaurant. “Here at ADYA, we’re having a little fun with this holiday and encouraging our guests to explore the many rich ingredients in our cuisine known to help get them in the ‘mood’ for Valentine’s Day!”
In addition to ADYA’s housemade chai, Chef Shachi will offer the following specials from Thursday, February 12th through Sunday, February 15th:
Coconut Shrimp – ginger & saffron
Mussels Masala – fennel & tomatoes
Paneer Korma – garlic & almonds
Lamb Roganjosh – cinnamon & nutmeg
Date and Coconut Naan – dates & coconut
Chai Crème Brûlée – vanilla & cardamom
Chef Shachi urges couples to end things on a sweet note with ADYA’s selection of housemade desserts. Sweetened with aphrodisiac ingredients like vanilla, cardamom, wild honey and cinnamon spice, ADYA’s dessert offerings include a special Chai Crème Brûlée, creamy Ras Malai, warm Gulab Jamun, and a Spiced Molten Chocolate Cake. Those looking to toast to their love may enjoy alcoholic offerings, including ADYA’s selection of imported beer and wine.
