If there is one thing you are sure to find in Jayanagar, it is a vast range of vegetarian food. And in this particular case, we are looking at some good North Indian Khaana at Punjabi Raswada. If you want to start with some nibbles, then the 'Aloo Chaat is a good one to begin with. There is also a range of 'Papad' and an interesting 'Mixed Fruit Raita' that you can try. The 'Tandoori Gobi' has large florets of cauliflower in a marinade that will leave a telltale sign on your fingers but which is really nice. For the main course, you can opt for the 'Garlic Naan', 'Laccha Paratha' and the 'Butter Naan' and pair that with some 'Paneer Takatak', or some 'Ma Ki Daal'. The 'Punjabi Bhatinda Kofta' is also a great pick. 'Bhindi Do Pyaaza', 'Punjabi Chole Masala' as well as a 'Kadai Bhaji' all make for great mains. If you are feeling a bit under the weather, then the 'Dal Palak Khichdi' is what you should order and ask for a dollop of ghee or butter. Desserts are all the usual suspects – the 'Gulab Jamun', 'Rabdi', 'Kulfi' and of course 'Gajar ka Halwa'.
North Indian food has many fans, no matter where they belong to. Not many people can pass on a chance to gobble up a buttery flaky naan and a good bowl of curry to dip into, the ritual is just too delicious. Although Bengaluru prefers its share of regional Southern fare, the city has a special fondness for North Indian food. The love is evident in several North Indian restaurants standing proudly against the city skyline, appealing to the diners with its rich creamy amalgam of flavours and textures. ‘Punjabi Raswada’ goes back to the original roots of the cuisine by keeping things simple and classic. The restaurant works well if you don’t want to experiment with all that modern Indian hoopla and stick to the standard North Indian stuff. It’s located in SM Towers, near Cosmopolitan Club in Jayanagar.
