Even a search on the net does not throw many options in Jalandhar. Last week, I was in the city for about 24 hours and explored quite a few places with the help of my local colleagues, online friends and the net. We visited some famous and some not so famous outlets and the locals swear by the food they serve. This could serve as a sort of food guide to the city.
Last Sunday, in a chilling cold, in an open courtyard with efforts to warm up the ambience with some live fire Sigree, I enjoyed an amazing dinner in a Food Pop Up curated by Chef Rajan Bedi. The three-course meal started with Amalokhi Soup, Chicken Tikka and Rampuri Seekh Kebab as starters. The main course included Lahsooni Dal, Amritsari Fish Curry, Murgir Jhol and Lal Maas. The accompaniments included Bhut Jolokia Chutney, Aloo Pithika and Khorisa (fermented Bamboo Shoot) Pithika. And the wonderful fare wrapped with Malpua topped with Moong Dal Halwa.
