Made in Punjab- Truly Punjabi…!!
Made in Punjab is another fine dine, class apart restaurant by none other than Zorawar Kalra. His restaurants have a different kind of niche which is almost unmatchable and Made in Punjab also stands true to the benchmark. Fully Punjabi in terms of decor, ambience and even music which is played, this is a place for food lovers in the truest of sense. This is a place where you fully indulge in food without thinking of calories, think only taste and you will love it.
When Mr. Bhalla Met Ms. Papdi (quite an interesting name, isn’t it) and Tokri Chaat were the first two things we ordered, along with Guava Mary and Mojito for drinks.
When Mr. Bhalla Met Ms. Papdi was as inserting in taste as its name, nice and soft bhallas with kurkuri papdi and tanginess of tamarind chutney and green chutney, made it all together a nice dish. The Tokri Chaat too was good, but the tastes were almost similar because of the fact that they both belonged to the chaat family.
Next we ordered, Legacy Tandoori Champ, Meat Te Seekhan, Lol Tikki and Gabbar Prawns. The Tandoor Champ was outstanding, such tender mutton chops with excellent tandoori marination, done to perfection, this one is a must try. Lol Tikki, very different and unique, just like the name, it was a mutton cutlet made from mutton legs slow cooked for over 10 hours and it was extremely delicious. Gabbar Prawns and Seekh were good too, but nothing exceptional about them.
Chicken Chilli, Broccoli Badam and Kalmi Kebab along with Creamy Seekh Kebabs were another set of starters we ordered. The Broccoli was excellent and so was the Chilli Chicken, Kalmi Kebabs as per me had a scope of improvement, as chicken could have been more tender, it was a little hard for my liking, the winner here was the Creamy Seekh, topped with cheesy and creamy sauce these were really amazing and definitely a must try.
Coming to main course we tried Luxury BC ( hey what are you thinking..??? Its just Luxury Butter Chicken ;)), Maa ki Daal, Lehsuni Palak Chenna, Nalli Hard Kaur and Paneer Lababdar and must say that each and everything was delicious. I specially loved the Daal, Lehsuni Palak Chenna and Nalli Hard Kaur the most. True authentic Punjabi flavours at their best!
And then one of the best things happened.. we tried the Guchchi Pulao, aka mushroom pulao which was mind blowing. Guchchi by the way is one of the most expensive kinds of mushroom and it tasted amazing.
And now coming to another delightful and sweet part, the desserts which were AMMMMAzing… really each one of them was better than the other. Goushalla Di Kulfi, Mango Rasgulla, Stuffed Gulabjamun, Nukkad Jalebi and Ras Dates Malai. All of them should definitely be tried and the ones not to be missed at any cost are the Mango Rasgulla, Nukkad Jalebi and the Chocolate Stuffed Gulab Jamun. These are truly heavenly delights.
In the end all I can say is that this is one place worth every minute and every penny you spend.. so just go for it..!
