Got invite for AMBARASARIA – Amristari food festival from Hyatt – Pink Poppodam, Bangalore from July 8th till July 17th.
About Ambarasaria – Ambersar commonly known as Amristar, is the most well-known place in Punjab for their Dhabba style foods (street foods). This food festival is based on the Dhabba style food of Amristar and so called as Ambarasaria. The food was too good right from the lassi till the dessert. A must for Punjabi food lovers in Bangalore.
Every time I would reach the place on time or would be little late due to Bangalore Traffic. But this time I was early to meetup as I don’t want to get struck in the traffic.
We got seated when few of friends came, we had munches like pappad, mathri, chutneys and gudpara with my all-time favorite Malai Lassi and Mango Lassi. The Lassi was awesome, I could feel the aroma of the saffron and the nuts when it was placed on the table.
Then comes the starters both veg and non-veg including Spicy Bhatti De Jhinglay (prawns), Amirstari mutton chaap, I felt the masala was little loaded for my taste buds, Tandoori murgh which was too good and then Fish fry – fish got melted in the mouth. In vegetarian I liked the satpura puff, layered puff served with their authentic chole masala.
Followed by the main course which includes the gravies likes chole masala, sarson ka saag, Butter chicken, Rara Ghosht, Keema Kaleji, Aloo wadi and few more which was accompanied with Indian Flat Breads like Amristari Kulcha, Makki ki roti, Pitti wali poori (stuffed poori), biryani and pulav.
Last but not the least – Dessert. We were completely full and thought of leaving the dessert, but when we got to see the dessert, all of us started digging it. We had Beetroot Halwa, phirni and one more forget the name.
Any Punjabi food lovers would visit the place @ The Pink Poppadam, Hyatt, and M.G. Road, Bangalore from 7.00 p.m till 11.00 p.m.
Thanks for the invite Hyatt – The Pink Poppadam.
