Even though Baisakhi is well past us,festivities continue to mark this month of harvest. Looking to offer a culinary treat of traditional fare,Baithak,the rustic-style restaurant in CITCOs spacious property Kalagram,has put together an Amritsari food festival. The menu brings in all that the food capital of Punjab is known for with a visiting team of chefs from Amritsar to steer the feast. Given the fact that the Navratras are receding,the menu brings in a smorgasbord to non-vegetarian options apart from signature vegetarian dishes. Here,you will find the likes of Amritsari Fried Fish,Chicken Tikka, Kalmi Kabab,Masala Tandoori Chicken,along with Gobhi Tandoori Grill,Bharvan Aloo and Vegetarian Seekh Kabab. The main course brings in a predictable line-up of Murg Tawa Masala,Murg Karahi,Mutton Champ Masala,Handi Meat and Dal Makhni. But we recommend you sample the dishes that the holy city is truly known for such as Lahori Chole,Lachha Parantha,Amritsari Kulcha with Channa and Paneer Kulcha with gravy. The range of desserts include Kesri Kheer,Jalebi Rabri and Malpua Rabri. To add to the culinary mix,there will be live performances by a Punjabi cultural troupe every evening. The festival is on till April 21.
