Punjab Grill Introduces Heirloom Recipes in Phoenix Mall’s Culinary Quest 2017
Phoenix Market City (Phoenix mall), Chennai is celebrating its 2017 edition of Culinary Quest through the month of July. The specialty of this food festival is the introduction of new items in the menu by participating restaurants and a 15% discount on the bill, a bonus at the time we are facing the brunt of GST in our food bills. We visited the Punjab Grill, a participating restaurant to check out the offering for the culinary quest.
Punjab Grill has always been specializing on Punjabi food and justifies its contribution to the food lovers with its quality and service. It was something to look forward to when we came to know that Punjab Grill is working on bringing heirloom recipes for the Culinary Quest this time. We love such food festivals happening occasionally because it makes the restaurant expand its menu and embark on identifying food that lies hidden in our age old culinary treasure. As a foodie, it gives me immense pleasure to see new items being offered to beat that familiarity with the food in their menu but it is no ordinary task to go in search of heirloom recipes and bring it onto our table with the perfection to make sure we enjoy it. Thanks to Punjab Grill Chef team, it was a job well done and we enjoyed the food at its best.
Now to the items in the Chef’s menu – we tried out the vegetarian items. In starters, we had Butter mushrooms, Tandoori Broccoli, Beetroot fig and walnut Tikki, Paneer tikka satay. Each item stood out in its presentation and taste.
Paneer tikka satay was succulent and the masalas seeped through every bite. The secret is out! Punjab Grill prepares their own paneer and probably the freshness won us over.
Butter mushrooms and Tandoori Brocolli were awesome. We were suspicious about the Beetroot Tikki being sweet because it is very difficult to hide the nature of beetroot. To add to that, there were figs and walnuts in the tikki. Surprisingly, the extra chilli in the tikki and the crispy crubs covering the tikki made it into a different dish than what we anticipated. A must try!
In the veg mains, we had dhabewali dal and roast aloo masala with melting naan. The spices were authentic and the traditional taste and aroma instantly made it clear that the items were from the heirloom collection specially curated for the Culinary Quest 2017 by Punjab Grill.
In the Desserts, we had Rabdi and Gulabjamuns. Specialty of the gulab jamuns lies in the chocolate. There were white chocolate gulab jamuns, dark chocolate gulab jamuns and cardamom ones. Do try them out.
And last not the least, the pan shot was the icing on the cake. A digestive aid and we could not resist the temptation to ask for one more. 🙂
For the non-veg lovers, in the starters, you have murgh ki chaampein, mutton boti tikka and lehsuni tandoori jheenda. In the Non-veg mains, you have murgh roast fatehwal, lamb shank and beliram, and Sarsonmacchi curry.
