Here is your chance to taste the flavours of delicious dishes that are prepared during Baisakhi festival. Celebrated in Punjab, the northern region of India, it is an important festival which is observed with much enthusiasm and enjoyment. As food plays a major role during this fiesta, India Bistro has decided to treat its customers to the best traditional food from the Punjabi households in both their outlets by hosting the Baisakhi food festival.
A perfect place for family dine out, you are welcomed with dhol and complementary Panipuri, which is very appetising. The à la carte has equal varieties of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Kick off your meal with either Mutter pudina shorba or Murg Nimboo shorba. Personally, I enjoyed the latter as it had more flavours, not very thick and the layer of citrus was refreshing and appetising.
For starters, vegetarians can go for Dhingri aloo, which looks like Sushi rolls and has a slight sweet and sour taste. For seafood lovers, Patiala fish tikka is a must-try. It is considerably tender, flavourful and is a melt-in-your-mouth dish.
For the main course, try something like Diwani handi, Paneer Patiala shahi, Saag murg and Bhatinda de tamatar wali macchi. They are all packed with flavours; yet they have a distinctive taste and are deliciously chatpata. To go along with it, ask for Makai ki roti, Missi roti or you can go for aromatic Vadi tawa pulao and NH1 da murg biryani.
Desserts like Kada Prasad, Dry fruit kheer and Moong dal halwa are available. Out of the three, I felt their Dry fruit kheer was prepared to perfection.
A complete meal course would approximately cost about Rs 1,400 for two people. Mind you, the quantity they serve is comparatively more than what other restaurants would usually serve. The festival is on till May 7, so do not miss out on this culinary treat!
