Punjabi food @ Punjabi by Nature

My search for great Punjabi food in Dubai has taken me to many places. Punjabi by Nature @ Oud Metha is one of them. Did my search end there?

Ambiance: Nicely done up with Punjabi quoted everywhere. The cutlery also is “Punjabi by nature” with the tall Lassi glasses & earthen colored plates.

Service: Very good. Prompt & suggestive. It was a first when for a chicken kebab I was ever asked ” Juicy or well done”.

Food:

Pedewaali Lassi: I have had lassis & I have had more lassis in all my life. But never have I been more “wowed” by a Lassi. It was mixture of your traditional lassi with Peda/Khoya that made it irresistibly lip smacking good.

Chicken Tikka Platter: This had 3 skewers of boneless chicken tikkas. The Malai Boti one was my favorite, the Chicken Tikka one was okay… Would have preferred more punch of flavor in it. The Green one was lacking in any kind of flavor, be it mint or coriander or chilli. But all 3 kebabs were juicy as promised by the staff.

Achari Murg: Tangy pickle flavored curry with soft pieces of chicken. We were told it would be spicy but it wasn’t too high on the spice quotient.

Roti was ok. But we ordered the Gobi & Pyaaz( Spring onion) Parathas & the filling was minimal & didn’t give a Stuffed Paratha feel ( forget comparing it to Parathe waali gali ke Parathey as mentioned on the menu).

Pricing: 100 Dhs for a meal for 2 makes it a reasonable affair.

Final verdict: They need to be more bold with their flavors. Really appreciate the fact that they don’t overload their food with Ghee/ Butter like other Punjabi restaurants.
