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.
There is Cape Comorin in the southernmost part of India in Kanyakumari. Then there is Comorin, a gastropub, in up north, Gurgaon, NCR. A novel concept of Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent fame, Comorin has successfully brought the rustic flavours of down south to the north and on the way, it picked up few flavours and beautifully amalgamated those to create wonders for your palate.
And then a North Indian Punjabi in me made Shorshe Diye Ilish Maachh Bhapa (Steamed Hilsa in Mustard Sauce) and Ilish Maachh Bhaja (Fried Hilsa) and enjoyed it over at least four meals. If you are able to lay your hands on this Wonder Fish which is full of flavours, do try these simple recipes in your kitchen.
