North Indian food owes much of its popularity to Punjabi cuisine. It’s this colourful cuisine that has lent North Indian menus the crowd-pleasing classics like dal makhani, butter chicken, chicken malai tikka, palak paneer and tandoori chicken, which have become an essential part of any North Indian selection. These North Indian staples have a tremendous fan base and no curry house is complete without the inclusion of wholesome Punjabi curries. They add to the menu a vibrancy, a zing that beats any platters of kebabs or mutton curries any day of the week. For North Indian expats living in Chennai ‘Bhatinda Xpress’ takes care of any homesick feeling through their wonderful North Indian menu. Those closer to Thuraipakkam will find an outlet of Bhatinda Xpress at MRK Arcade. Drop in to get your curry fix.
