If you think that Punjabis are obsessed with chicken, you are probably wrong. As you can the best fish dish in the bylanes of Amritsar. Amritsari fish is a lip-smacking dish in which fish is first pre-marinated in gram flour batter with spices and then, fried in oil. Served with coriander and mint chutney, this dish has kept us hooked for a long time. 


Saag Chicken 

Winter is the season of saag and it is totally fair that we talk about this dish. Made with seasonal leafy greens, this dish is not just delicious but healthy as it has the goodness of green vegetables. It has basic spices but thanks to the chicken and greens, it keeps you warm from within. Do try it this season.

Meat cooked in dal, can there be anything better? Also known as Dal Ghost, this dish is not just not a specialty from Punjab but from also other North Indian regions like Jammu and Kashmir. Usually made with chana dal and mutton or lamb, this dish is cooked in a base of onions and other spices. This is delicious and perfect for winter days.
