UTTERLY BUTTERLY CHICKEN
BABA CHICKEN, LUDHIANA 135 KM FROM CHANDIGARH
The story so far Originally started in the year 1962 near the railway station in Ludhiana, Baba’s Chicken, so named because of the flowing beard of its founder Harnam Singh, is one of the most successful
dhabhas in the region. Now spread across Punjab in its modern avatar, it still serves the traditional famed butter chicken. As history goes, it is the lack of ready-made dry
masalas that prompted Harnam Singh to grind his own, thus adding that mouth-watering touch to the chicken. In 1991, the small set up shifted to Model Town in Ludhiana with a dine-in option and the rest as they is history.
What's different What sets their butter chicken apart from all others is the specially prepared yellow gravy. Creamy and rich with flavours, the thick gravy makes this butter chicken fabulous.
Family Run Harman's son Kanwaljit Singh, 56, helped build the brand, expanding it to four more outlets within the city and his son Avneet Singh, 32, armed with an MBA is now helping run the place.
Beyond Chicken Baba’s Chicken has a lot more to offer than just butter chicken. It has a vast menu for vegetarians; the lemon mushroom and grilled pineapple are the must-haves.
Future Wise The brand name has been legally patented and next on the agenda are express joints across the region, which will serve a limited menu of snacks and of course the butter chicken. Meal for two `1,800 Where Canal Road, South City Tel 9863450000
