Punjabi people in south Bangalore, happy news! Some good Punjabi food in your neighboorhood. Bathinda Junction has many outlets now, and I have loved going to the Koramangala outlet for some lip-smacking food. So I didn’t pass up the opportunity to go to bloggers table at this newly opened outlet. My first event after a long unwanted break, and rightly a Punjabi restaurant.
The setting is very similar to the other outlets of Bathinda Junction. Milestones on stairs, rooftop open setting with khats as well. and funky Punjabi quotes all over the place. peppy Punjabi songs playing in the background. A lovely dhabha kind of experience setting up the mood for the Punjabi food.
The started were delicious. We started with Honey chilli potatoes, Paneer chilly and veg bullet. Everything was delicious. Masala papad became soggy by the time we took pictures though. Amongst non-vegetarian starters, I liked Honey chilli chicken, good texture and good flavour. I also liked Afghan Chicken. But, I felt fish tikka was a miss.
Amongst non-vegetarian starters, I loved the honey chilli chicken, good texture and good flavour. I also liked Afghan Chicken. It was slightly bland, but good job with the creamy texture. However, fish tikka was a miss.
The main course got even better. Amongst vegetarian main course dishes, I loved the Malai Kofta in white gravy and daal makhani. Malai Kofta was very very well executed and very flavourful and I think it’s a must try in the vegetarian main course. Bhaigan ka bharta was a miss for me. It just wasn’t Punjabi enough.
The non-vegetarian main course was an equally big hit. I am a fan of Rara chicken here. Must try!! I also liked Butter chicken and Homemade chicken in the order.
Needless to say by this time I was already full!! But, you can’t pass up on desserts. So we had Kheer, which was good, but I thought it needed a bit more cooking time to reach there. Gajar ka halwa tasted good but again need a bit more carrots. I felt that the taste of Khoya was overpowering. But the star dessert of for me, and very unexpected was “Teri souhh Churi”. The jaggery and ghee flavour was so authentic. An instant reminder of home, I think you shouldn’t miss this amazing delicacy.
Highly recommended items
Honey chilli chicken, Malai Kofta, Rara Chicken and of course, Teri souhh Churi!
