Hello Foodies 🙂
I was recently invited to the Private Launch of the new Summer Menu at Punjabi by Nature which is located opposite Lamcy Plaza in Oud Metha. This proudly Punjabi restaurant will win you over, even before you think of how hungry you are, by its funky posters, table mats with quirky quotes and a glass window full of funny Hindi sayings.
Our welcome drink was a shot glass with Pede Wali Lassi which is buttermilk made with Mathura Peda! This drink is originally served in a big typical Dhaba (roadside restaurant) style glass and can be a meal in itself! Thankfully we were given smaller portions just to taste which made it possible to get through to the rest of the meal.
After this we were served some pretty delicious appetizers along with another drink called Ambh Ka Panna (knows as the Tang of Punjab with a taste of Mango).
We started off with Arbi Ki Tikki which is basically Yam cutlets. These were pretty Chunky and delicious. Served with a wasabi like Indian version sauce, they went well with the same.
Then came the Paneer Tikka and Stuffed Mushrooms. Considering I am not a big fan of Mushrooms, these were pretty good and unique as I have never seen Mushrooms stuffed with a vegetable mixture.
Then came the main course and no Punjabi Meal is complete without Sarson Da Saag This was delicious and did just to its Punjabi tradition.
Along with this we were served Wadiyan Wala Paneer, a typical thick gravy with Paneer chunks in it, the traditional yummy Black Daal, flavourful Vegetable Pulao, and a Bread Basket.
My delicious Punjabi affair ended with this Dessert Platter consisting of Ras Malai, Gulab Jamun, Phirni and Gajar Ka Halwa of which I liked only the Gulab Jamun.
To add on to the humor, even the packet of wet wipes had something funny on it and so did the back of the menu.
Since Indians like to add a rhyming Hindi word to an English word, I must agree, this Diet Shiet is really all Naan-Sense! To which I trot out hoping someone will shout out, Kithe Chali Hain Gobhi da Phool Banke (Where are you going looking like a Cauli-Flower) *LOL*
Oh well, unfortunately nobody shouts out, but I leave with a Happy Stomach and remind myself to EAT OK PLEASE.
