Indulge in the richness of authentic Amrtisari cuisine as Dilli 32, the Indian Cuisine restaurant at Leela Ambience Convention Hotel takes you on an on delightful culinary journey through the Grand Trunk Road.
With the first stop as Amritsar, Dilli 32 has created a special menu and ambience that celebrates the traditional flavours of the city. Starting from February 19th, 2016 the fun and indulgent festival will offer authentic Amritsari cuisine with delicacies like Fish Amritsari, Palak Paneer, Sarson da Saag and Makki di Roti, Mutton Chaap, Tandoori Kulcha and Chholeand many more dishes to choose from. End your meal on a decadent note with desserts like Gur kaHalwa, Balushahi, Pinni and more.
Recreating the magic of Punjabi food and culture, their Chef de Cuisine, Ashwani Kumar Singh at Dilli 32 personally travelled to Amritsar to bring back the authentic flavours using the local spices and recipes to create this lip smacking menu. The food can also be paired perfectly with the finest range of spirits available at Dilli 32.
I attended the preview of the festival and was more than impressed with the authentic taste of Amritsar that was beautifully presented in saddi Dilli! Also brownie points to the team of The Leela Ambience for recreating the Amritsari vibe in the middle of their huge 5 star property.
My favorites from the menu are- SAAG, RAJMA KE KEBAB, AMRITSARI DAAL and PHIRNI. For drinks they are serving- BANTA, SHIKANJI, KALA KATTA ICE LOLLIES AND KAANJI.
From the lamps to the chaarpayi, the servers dressed up in Punjabi outfits and the Truck standing at one corner was a job well done. Can not wait for the next stop of the Grand Trunk Journey.
Will surely keep you guys updated. Stay tuned!
