The rich and satisfying cuisine of Amritsar, Punjab...

Amritsar is the 2nd  largest city in the state of Punjab, whose name translates as ‘land of the five rivers’. The rivers, as well as providing an abundance of freshwater fish produce lush, fertile lands that are fantastic for farming wheat and dairy.

To begin we’ve got one of Amritsar’s popular street snacks of fish coated in yogurt, flour and spices then fried until crispy, served with a simple salad, green chutney and raita. Next up is one of the area's most famous exports - a true favourite of tandoori chicken with a buttery makhani dhal and breads topped with nigella seeds, known as kulcha.

The amritsari fish, the tandoori chicken and the kulcha bread were all amazing! But the dhal makhani was pretty disappointing, as it didn’t really taste anything like the real thing. Overall was really good.
