Made in Pun­jab, Masterchef fame Zo­rawar Kalra’s Pun­jabi restau­rant which is just a few months old in the city is at first rem­i­nis­cent of Pun­jab Grill from the same fam­ily. At its core, it is Pun­jabi food al­beit pre­sented in a fine din­ing avatar, of­ten with a pep­per­ing of un­usual flavours.

The fun be­gins with the menu and con­tin­ues through­out the meal at your ta­ble. The cock­tails with gen­er­ous lev­els of al­co­hol and their sharp kick are where the stereo­types end. The rest of the meal is un­der­stated and sub­tle. Happy Singh, a gin cock­tail laced with egg white and flavoured with or­ange blos­som comes in a feed­ing bot­tle and can crack you up al­most in­stantly. The menu is vast; you’ll find ev­ery­thing from burg­ers to Chi­nese prepa­ra­tions (with a Pun­jabi take) along­side tra­di­tional ones. Pop­eye Paaji Ki Favourite Chat with spinach pa­pdis, yo­ghurt and tamarind is eas­ily one of the best things you could try here and the tan­doori chicken with home ground spices and grilled to per­fec­tion was a re­fresh­ing de­par­ture from the usual restau­rant ver­sions. Ev­ery item on the menu is rich in flavour with­out be­ing an over­load of spices and ev­ery gravy unique. Made in Pun­jab at the end of the day is all about lit­tle sur­prises and none you’ll be too dis­ap­pointed with. MEAL FOR TWO Rs 2,500 AT Made in Pun­jab, UB City, Vit­tal Mallya Road
