Places To Eat In jalandhar

Places to Eat in Jalandhar

How can you not sample the local food, when you are in a state like Punjab?! After all, it is among the most flavourful and popular cuisines in all of India. A city like Jalandhar, which is still seeing urban development; hence is still connected to its cultural roots, promises you the real taste of Punjab. A lot of people are picking Jalandhar packages specifically to taste the local food. Here is an overview of the best dishes to sample in Jalandhar and places that offer these.

Overview

Though the food at the restaurants in Jalandhar is cooked on gas, people in villages still use traditional masonry stoves, fired by wood. The local food is rich in carbohydrates as the state produces huge amounts of grains like rice and wheat. Dairy products are again rooted deep in the local cuisine as all rural households have cattle. As with all of India, the food here too is infused with a range of spices that also add to the colour.

How Punjabis begin their Day

The people of Jalandhar and Punjab in its entirety are extremely passionate about food; hence, each meal is a tasty affair. A widely eaten breakfast dish is Chhole Bhature; chhole is chick peas cooked with spices, and bhatures are flat breads, made by deep frying fermented maida dough. Chhole can also be had with kulche, in which instead of frying the bhatura dough, the rolled balls are baked in a clay oven or tandoor. Another Punjabi flat bread that starts the day of many locals is paratha, made by shallow frying flattened wheat dough balls on an iron girdle or tawa in ghee or refined oil. It is common to see parathas being smeared with freshly made butter just before serving. These parathas can be stuffed with cauliflowers, potatoes or paneer. Halwa, made by cooking semolina in water and ghee, and then flavoured with almonds, sugar and green cardamoms, is also had for breakfast.

What Punjabis have for Lunch and Dinner

Paneer Tikkas, prepared by grilling marinated cottage cheese pieces in a tandoor, is a hugely consumed appetiser, served in parties all over North India. A dish, which is an icon of the food culture of Jalandhar as well as the main course staple, is Sarson ka Saag with Makke ki Roti. Sarson ka Saag is a dish of mustard leaves, made into a thick soupy consistency, topped with butter, whereas Makke ki Rotis are maize flour flat breads. Dal Makhani, a black lentil preparation, is yet another famous Punjabi entree. Punjab also has its version of Kadhi, which is spicier than in some other parts of India. Kidney beans or Rajma are usually had with plain rice. Shahi Paneer, in which cottage cheese is cooked in a tomato-based gravy with fresh cream, is also popular.

Among the popular non-vegetarian delights of Punjab is Tandoori Chicken, which has taken the whole world by storm. Chicken pieces are marinated in a yoghurt, red chilli and spices, and then grilled in a clay oven to make this famous delicacy. Other delicious dishes, using Tandoori Chicken as the base, are Chicken Tikka, Malai Tikka and Hariyali Tikka. Butter Chicken is made by poaching chicken pieces in gravy, similar to that of Shahi Paneer. Fish is marinated in gram flour batter and then fried till tender to make the renowned Amritsari Macchi. These meaty dishes are best enjoyed with naan, a flatbread, in which rolled maida dough, is grilled in a tandoor; it can be smeared with butter.

What else Punjabis Eat

One of the most famous accompaniments to a Punjabi meal is Lassi, a drink made with beaten yoghurt. You should really try lassi, topped with lots of fresh cream. Chaas or buttermilk is another great accompaniment to delicious Punjabi dishes, especially considering the weather of Jalandhar, which is quite warm in summers. Gajar ka Halwa, in which shredded carrots are flavoured with green cardamom and sugar, and layered with almonds, cashews, resins and khoya, is a popular dessert in Punjab. Other tasty desserts to have in Jalandhar are Ras Malai, Kalakand, Jalebis, Imarti and Kheer.

Haveli, Rangla Punjab, Lucky Vaishno Dhaba, Eat Well House, PB08 Garden Grill, The Maya Hotel, Kurry's And Kabab, Baba Chicken, New Zaffrani Zaika, Punjabi Rasoi and Bukhara are some popular city restaurants. With such a scrumptious meal on offer, Jalandhar will keep all foodies satisfied.
