Delicacies Made In Punjab...

Made In Punjab Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Made In Punjab is Zorawar Kalra's initiative to present the life and times, the grandeur of the Sikh Kingdom while exploring and reviving the rich culinary history of the princely state of Punjab.

The cuisine of the Punjab has not just imbibed in itself the influence of the various invasions, primarily Turkish and Iranian, but has also produced generations of Khansamahs who, over the centuries, have perfected the art for today’s North West Frontier cuisine.

The gastronomic delights at Made In Punjab comprise of dishes from the Princely State, developed after in-depth research of the region’s culinary past, focusing on the provinces surrounding the Five Rivers.

"Punjab" in Persian means 'Five Rivers' and thus the menu curated at Made In Punjab aims to bring the best of the rich agricultural regions surrounding the rivers Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Beas, and Sutlej.

The inspiration for the menu lies in tracing the cultural lineage of the region, showcasing the culinary strength of gourmet cities like Amritsar, Lahore, Peshawar and Baluchistan among other notable regions unified under the leadership of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, which were not just a melting pot of different cultures and traditions, but also are renowned for their distinguished gastronomic history.

My visit to MIP came about as a consequence of a tiring shopping spree in Mall of India and I'm glad it did the way it did. The outlet is located on the third floor and is quite a spacious one. MIP offers a wide variety in its Ala Carte and also features a buffet setting. Courteous, attentive service with a smile and delicious delicacies made the visit worthwhile.

The way their Menu has been designed is also quite unique. Have a look through their quirky nomenclature, and you're sure to smile all through while browsing the menu. The way they present their Poppadoms on a tree bark is also aesthetically pleasing.

Here's what all was savored on my visit to MIP...


Popeye Paaji Ki Favorite Chaat was the classically fried spinach leaves topped with tamarind, mint, and yogurt, as the name suggested.

Tokri Chaat was a mini potato basket platter, filled with green peas and topped with an assortment of dips.

LOL Tikki was a mutton preparation, while Legacy Tandoori Champ was about lamb ribs char-grilled to perfection and topped with a flavorful spice mix.

Masala Kukkad Bun and Bun Tikki were spin-offs on the quintessential Vada Pav.

Paneer Barrel Tikka reminded me of 38 Barracks, quite frankly. Well-prepared cottage cheese chunks with a sweet filling topped with micro-greens were what this dish was all about.

Broccoli Badam was about the most lavish veggie marinated in cream and topped with almonds.

Dahi Pataka was a flavorful spin-off on Dahi Ke Kebab.

Bhatti Ka Murg was about chicken marinated in Chef's choicest spices.

Burnt Lehsuni Tikka had a unique garlic flavor lent to it owing to the unique preparation method.

There's also the choicest selection of classic Punjabi beverages that have been modernized to suit the palate of the clientele. Their coasters also have been designed in line with the theme. A special mention goes to the milkshakes at MIP that have their aesthetics presented in a baby's feeding bottle.

Skipped the Main Course and went straight for the sweet conclusion as I was quite full. The desserts I had heard, were a must try at MIP and thus I didn't want to miss them on this visit. The visuals are enticing enough to inspire an appetite.

 All the dishes had superb, authentic flavors, and I am sure that I'll be coming back to Made In Punjab in the near future. :)
