Hear the word “PUNJABI” and you cannot but think of PUNJAB and its people who believe in good food and needless to mention unlimited masti (enjoyment).
Siesta Hitech is hosting a Punjabi Food Festival at Qube Cafe from 17th February 2017 to 26th February 2017. The cuisine of Punjab has an enormous variety of mouth watering vegetarian as well as non vegetarian delicacies. The patrons of Hyderabad would get to experience a spectacular exhibition of authentic Punjabi cuisine.
The earliest references to Punjab’s food are found in the Vedas, which documents the life of the Aryans in this region. Amazingly, the elements mentioned over 6,000 years ago are still extant in their cuisine. The elements include dairy-Dughd (milk), Ghrit (ghee) and Dadhi (curd), Shak (leafy green vegetables) and a variety of grain.
Even today, the staple in the Punjab are the grains and vegetables in their basic form. Punjabi cuisine has always been strongly influenced by the Mughal invaders who had brought with them the tradition of the great Tandoor and now the Tandoori cooking is celebrated as one of the most popular cuisine throughout the world.
The chefs of the region make liberal use of Desi ghee, butter and cream to make the food lip smacking and finger licking. Punjabi cuisine consists of varied kinds of breads; some are baked in the Tandoor such as Tandoori Roti, Lachha Paratha, Naan and kulcha, while others are dry baked on Tava like chapatti and Jowar ki roti. There are other fabulous varieties of bread such as the Rumali roti, which is larger in size as compared to the normal one and is also easily absorbable as well as there are breads which are shallow fried such as parantha and deep fried such as Puri and Bhatoora. Makki ki Roti with Sarsoonka Saag is the special combination food. The ingredients of Punjabi cuisine are easily available throughout country and the cuisine is just as varied as the aforementioned breads.
The non-vegetarian treats include the famous Rarah gosht and Macchhi Amritsari . While there is a whole list of mouth watering dishes one should not forget that traditional dessert like Ganne Ke Ras Ka Kheer and Pirnee will also be available.
