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 producing a glut 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.

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. Finally India’s version of fudge, pistachio barfi flavoured with green cardamon.

I have been using the spicery for 2 years now. They have all been exciting to try and we always look forward to our next Date Night package. They also make a really good gift.
