I visited this place on a weekday for dinner along with a friend. We were welcomed with a smile on the face by the manager. Appealing ambiance along with elegant lighting adds charm to this wonderful spot. Soulful punjabi music being played on that evening was the feather on the cap.
We started with the snacks and first thing which came to our table was Popeye bhaji ki favorite chat. Perfect in flavor chat was too delicious. It had the dahi and chutney toppings which was really yummy. Samosa Golmaal was very tempting and was very beautifully presented. Loved it.
The liquor licence was pending at the time when I visited it, so we tasted few of the mocktails. Guava Mary was a balanced mix of guava juice with some black pepper.
Next on the table was Jau Mushroom Chakli which were served along with superb mustard sauce. Flawless blend of mushroom and sabudana gave it a nice binding along with the stunning flavor.
Barrel paneer tikka was a masterpiece by the chef. Crisp from outside whereas soft and juicy from inside. The stuffing was fantastic and the texture was mind blowing. Lol Tikki was actually the mutton tikki which was well prepared by the slow cooking. It was served with lip smacking mint sauce which was a deadly combination.
Burnt Lahsun Tikka was the next thing which we tried. The burnt garlic flavor was phenomenal and this went really well with the chutneys.
We headed towards main course after tasting these alluring snacks. Sarson ka saag along with makki ki roti is my all time favorite and after seeing this in their menu, this was the first thing in the table from their main course menu. Saag was superb with the nice blend of punjabi spices. It went really well with makki ki roti. Another gem from their menu is Fauji Chowk di Chicken Curry. One of the best chicken curry I had till date. Bang on with the flavors and is highly recommended to all the chicken curry lovers.
From their dessert section, we tried nukkad jalebi and stuffed gulab jamun. Jalebi was amazingly done and the presentation was excellent.
Stuffed gulab jamun was a surprise in the first bite. Filled with hot chocolate, this was the pick of the day. Loved every bite of it.
Verdict : Made In Punjab has opened its door for the people loving the Punjabi food. Fantastic flavor and really unique preparation is their USP. It’s a perfect destination for trying the authentic Punjabi food in Noida. Recommended to all fellow foodies in the town.
