Made in Punjab – Aamantra

Made in Punjab was one of the few restaurants which opened in Cyber Hub which focused mainly on the food from North India. The highly anticipated venture from Jiggs Kalra has satisfied patrons since the time it has opened up. The food, in every sense is Punjabi which is rich in quality and taste. To celebrate the season of Mango a special menu has been designed by MIP named Aamantra which will have dishes not limited to desserts made from Mango.

In all the dishes the black and yellow aam papad has been used exceptionally well which provides a texture and depth to the dishes.

Desserts

The ‘phalraj

The ‘phalraj

 

The ‘phalraj’ – Rice & mango phirnee topped with crushed mango candy,mango jelly,sweet mango papad & fresh cut mangoes. Phirni is a staple dessert of Amritsar and just the phirini alone would take you back to the small shops in the lanes of Amritsar. This is what I called honest food , nothing too much done to change the authenticity of the phirini

Mango ‘crunch’ narangi – Mango & orange kalakand stuffed filo parcels served with duo of mango & berry creams – There are few people who like high notes of sugar in their desserts and this is the dish which they will love . There is mango and berry cream  to cut the sweetness though

The menu is on for a limited period of time – Ek baar aam ka season gaya to Gaya “
