With cricket becoming the name of the food game, a prominent hotel in this Gujarat city, which hosts an India-Sri Lanka one-dayer on Wednesday, has put on its menu Sehwag sandwiches, Murli burgers and even a Dhoni Daal Tadka.
Rajkot's Imperial Palace Hotel, which is hosting the two cricket teams, has also innovated with cakes in the shapes of balls, bats and stumps.
"We have named food items after cricketers so it adds to the appeal. We have also made a ground-shaped pizza and named it after the city's cricket ground. It is called the Scindia Cricket Ground Pizza," said hotel manager Nepaal Singh.
"Dhoni is a hard hitting batsman and very popular among youngsters. Looking at his bombastic batting, we have an item named after him, Dhoni Daal Tadka," he added.
As cricket has an appeal that goes beyond just a single match, the hotel management is also planning for some lasting memorabilia - it has decided to get cricket symbols painted on its crockery used in the dining room.
