On a warm Monday afternoon, I decided to go check out the newest Punjabi restaurant in Bangalore called Made in Punjab on the fourth floor of UB City. Hidden in the corner is a massive 4000 sqft restaurant open for lunch and dinner only.

I've stopped eating at buffet tables as I overeat and do not enjoy a restaurant's speciality dish.

On offer to choose as I walked past an army of staff, was a buffet offering over 45 dishes of food or an A La Carte menu.

The menu showcases the cuisines of gourmet cities in Punjab like Amritsar, Baluchistan, Lahore and Peshawar that were unified under the leadership of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

It's easy to figure out what I chose (the A La Carte menu).

It's been a hot week in Bangalore and when I got there I  tried the Minty Apple ( Fresh Apple muddled with mint, lime juice and house made apple soda, the staff obliged my request of no sugar).

 

THE FOOD! Every restaurant has their share of Appetizers & Entrees.

On offer is a mouth-watering mix of Tikkas & Kebabs.

Vegetarian

Paneer Barrel Tikka (Marinated cream cottage cheese with cheesy pickle stuffing and roasted in the tandoor) - The best ever Paneer, I've eaten yet, it had been marinated really well and took me to a very happy moment.

Main Course 

Rawal Pindi Chole (On special request - Tempered chickpeas with onions, tomato chana  masala). Most of what I ate that afternoon consisted of this dish. It was really yum and I cannot wait to go back and eat it again.

Nalli Hard Kaur was scrumptious for Non Vegetarians is truly heaven.       (You can almost instantly taste the bone marrow in the gravy as you taste this dish. It consists of Braised lamb shanks mixed with bone marrow onion and yoghurt gravy).

MY OPINION - This place calls for an occasion - If anybody had to eat here everyday - I think somebody in the fitness industry could survive the rich food.  I personally preferred their starters more than the mains.
