I am living in Punjab from more than 2.5 years now, and almost tried everything which is remarkable here. So this hit me with a ideas of the classic combinations which can’t be miss while you are in Punjab.

This is something which denotes ‘Punjab’ in a beautiful way. The name of the dish is not only a name but a proper sentence in the Punjabi language, “Makki di Roti naal Sarso da Saag“. This classic combo opens a window to the feeling of the scenario which our Indian cinema has created over the past years.

I have tried this dish in restaurants or dhabas, and it was quite decent in taste until one of my friends brought this dish made at home, which was terrific. The home taste was absolutely authentic. I tried to capture the home taste in any food because it has the real taste of authenticity, which is missing in most restaurants. Since this is a patent dish of every home in winter in Punjab, which can be tried at least once while you are here in winter.
