Last year in November, I visited India for my cousins wedding. We all know wedding in India can be a lot of fun but can get a little overwhelming at times. So before all the celebrations started, we planned a small getaway trip to Amritsar (a city in the state of Punjab -India)
Amritsar, big on the tourists list of places to visit in India, is home to the famous GOLDEN TEMPLE. A city with history, a vibrant culture, and lots of good food.
Because the golden temple is a holy shrine, none of the eating joints in its vicinity serve non vegetarian food. But one doesn't need it. All that one needs is a good appetite, for some good, rustic north Indian food.
We entered the place and it was bustling with people, more so tourists. We couldnt wait to order the specialities........AMRITSARI KULCHA, DAL MAKHANI, MAKKI KI ROTI SARSO KA SAAG.........oh my goodness. Everything was sizzling hot, and full of flavour. the butter on the dal, the soft kulchas melting in the mouth, the crisp tandoori roti with melted butter glistening on top.....it was just too good. and to add to all this, my brother ordered for rice pudding or kheer. hummmmmm, was it good or WAS IT GOOD...
Dinner was at MAKHAN MACHI WALLA (literally translated to fish with butter). Located in the central part of the city on Lawrence road. this place is famous for its soft, succulent fish,coated in a batter of gram-flour and egg, and then fried. for all those who love to snack with there drinks this is an awesome snack. our dinner ended with the most famous dessert, the fruit cream. served in ice cream cups, it simply soothed out taste buds, with its cool and creamy texture.
