#AjitsNagpuriSaoji,Shivar Chowk,Pimple Saudagar.
Now Nagpuri & Saoji these two words can make me travel to moon for having dinner.(Chndrayaan 3 pochle ki janar)
On way to one of the client meeting saw this board and then dinner was fixed at this place.
Being born and bought up in Nagpur,Saoji Rassa flows into our blood. Saoji is basically made with 18 garam masalas blend together. Which makes it extremely flavourful and spicy. Saoji is also misinterpreted as TIKHAT but it’s more of Masala Wala spicy and not only the Mirchi wala.
AJIT’S NAGPURI SAOJI is prominently visible bang opposite Shivar Garden in Pimple Saudagar.Ambiance is nice..Yes I am using ambiance word in Saoji restaurant where we can take our family along.
One wati Rassa and Papad just the way we have in Nagpur. Kind of Saoji starter.
∆∆ Sukha Chicken for starters and were extremely surprised.This was the closest one could get to what we get in Nagpur. Masala was done so well.
In mains we had
∆∆ Egg Curry Thali –
Thali comes with Fulka/Chapatis and can ask for Bhakar as well, Curry, a bowl of Dahi and one piece Gulabjamun.
The balance of masalas was just perfect in Egg Curry.
#Showstopper – Khur or Paya.. Something which I was looking for in Pune for last so many years,kaha kaha nai dhunda tumhe and tum yaha Shivar Garden me chupe ho.
∆∆ Khur Curry Thali – Brilliantly roasted Khur , mind-blowing saoji curry and those garma garam fulkas. Dil jeet lia bus.Yeh mil gaya Pune me abhi sir kuch nai cahiye. This Thali was came with other Thali items – Dahi and Gulabjamun.
We ordered Lasun Jeera Tadka with it to go an extra mile for the taste.
We simply loved the food and then thanked the person on counter for serving us this delicious food and made is felt Nagpur is close to Pune. Owner Ajit Ingole belongs to Nagpur and himself is a Saoji food lover which made him get it to Pune.
A very humble guy and nice to talk to.
Separate section and arrangements have been made for BYOB and starters are served.
I haven’t seen the setup yet as it was not yet ready.
They also have Chinese menu for the one who want to miss on the opportunity to try it but accompanied ones who want to have it.
Service is nice but as they have mentioned in menu it takes about 20 mins to serve you food.
Ample parking for cars as they have empty ground behind the restaurant.
