Retiring after a long day of paying homage, you ought to feel hungry. And that’s another feather in the cap of Amritsar: the toothsome delicacies that will make you fall in love with the place even more. You ask what’s on offer? While the Guru ka langar at Golden temple and the kadha parshad captures the essence of the city, Oh! we won’t keep you waiting any longer.  

  • Chole with Tandoori Kulcha  

A staple breakfast for most locals, it will be pretty hard for you to miss, given that every corner of city is brimming with these food stall and shops. And who can do kulchas better than the ones who created it, right? The first time you dip that flaky, tandoori Amritsari kulcha stuffed with aloo, paneer and what not into a bowl of chole accompanying it, you won’t be able to stop at one.

  • Fish Tikkas  

It’s hard to picture an Amritsari who’s not a foodie. That’s how deep is their love for cooking, particularly tikkas and tandoors. Whether you like fish tikkas or fried fish, you’ll find everything fresh, crunchy, spicy and with some masala and chutney always!

  • Sarson ka saag and Makki di Roti 

Now we know why Punjab has such widespread Sarson ke khet; to offer you with the best ghee wala saag and garam garam makki di roti in winters!  

Where to eat: Bharawan Da Dhaba  

  • Tandoori Chicken  

Did I already mention about how much Amritsari people love their tandoors? Roasted tandoori chicken with a dash of lemon zest and some onion rings and coriander chutney on the side, is the perfect way to start your evenings in the city.

Also, good luck finishing that gigantic glass of lassi you saw Katrina Kaif struggling with in Namastey London.
