Pritam Da Dhaba – Review and What to Eat

Pritam Da Dhaba

I’m not a big supporter of eating proper Indian food while I’m eating out. So when I was headed for a family dinner to Pritam Da Dhaba, there wasn’t much I was looking forward to. However, the food ended up being extremely tasty and I also had one of the best Hara Bhara Kebabs of my whole life! So here’s my experience at Pritam Da Dhaba.

That was Pritam Da Dhaba! I absolutely could not resist grabbing all of that roomali roti action and I’m so glad I did.

Here’s my full review and suggestions on what to eat when you are at Pritam Da Dhaba.

Hara Bhara Kebabs

Pritam Da Dhaba

These are just perfect. The stuffing is really good, they have the right amount of crunch. You can’t not have these at Pritam Da Dhaba!

Paneer Musallam

Pritam Da Dhaba

Their version of paneer butter masala. It isn’t too creamy or too watery. The gravy has that nice tangy tomato taste with the right amount of Indian masalas. And this is the one I personally recommend over Moti Mahal’s paneer butter masala.

Chura Paratha 

Pritam Da Dhaba

Crumpled paratha with loads of ghee. Try this for sure.

Dal Makhani

Pritam Da Dhaba

Not too heavy – you don’t feel like a slouch after eating this.

Those were my recommendation at Pritam Da Dhaba. It’s one of those Old is Gold kinda places. I think the food is really tasty. The ambience is also a no-nonsense kinds. They do have some sitting place outside as well which has that dhaba kind of feel – the khaats and the lit up trees. All in all, a great place for tasty Indian food.

It’s pumpkin soup and it didn’t make me throw up. So yeah!

Watermelon Mojito

Veranda Bandra

Nothing like minty fresh watermelon with some liquor.

Contem-Beetroot Salad

This is a dahi bhalla – but deconstructed! Great taste.

Palak Bhindi Chaat

Veranda Bandra

Spinach, fried bhindi, chutneys and hung curd – it’s got everything going on.

Veranda Bandra

3 Different flavors of paneer – mild, spicy and healthy i.e. with spinach!

Vegetarian Kebabs

Veranda Bandra

A beetroot kebab with tomato chutney on top, a mushroom one and the best one – a spinach kebab with sweet mango pickle. That pickle is parcel worthy!

Banksy Bharta

Veranda Bandra

Perfect baingan bharta, tomato and onion kulcha and dal makhni that’s not too heavy.

Gulkand Chocobar

Veranda Bandra

Only thing better than saunf is saunf rolled in chocolate! That’s what I felt about this.

Review – Indi Kitchen!

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Indi kitchen delivers Indian food to your doorstep. What’s good is that you can customize your meal as per whatever you feel like having – like you can choose between rice / rotis and the veggies you want and also the gravy that you would like. In that sense I think this is one of the first few doing it for Indian food..which is good. 
Recommend:
Paneer lasooni appetizer 
This is perfection – soft paneer chunks with onion and capsicum, marinated in a very tasty green coating.

Paneer Lasooni
Aloo kulcha
Excellent aloo filling – right amount of spices. I ate it slightly cold but couldn’t stop myself from hogging on this!

Aloo Kulcha
Chocolate samosa
Mini samosas with a supremely generous amount of chocolate in between. Eat these super hot.

Chocolate Samosa
Triple teekha gravy and paneer 
This one is actually quite tasty – you can just dip some naan in as a sauce / chutney and have it. But only those who love spicy food can handle this.

Triple Teekha Gravy
Jeera rice
Not just jeera, but flavored with a whole lot of other spices. Quite nice

They also send a lovely Indian style salad – onion, carrot etc with lime and some spices.

Delhi Darbar Gastronomy is pretty easy to spot – quite close to the highway. I was recently invited to check out this place and sample the food. So let’s get straight to what I ate. 
Recommend:
Mango mania – mocktail

Crispy hara bhara kabab

Paneer makhmali 
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
Tomato mint shorba 
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
Gulab jamun

Dudhi halwa 
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
I started with some tomato and pudina shorba. I’ve not really tried tomato and mint as a combo and this was pretty interesting. Slightly on the spicier side, but this did make for some great soup.
Next I tried the kurkura hara bhara kabab – this was essentially hara bhara kabab fried along with some papad bits – another yummy dish. Taste and texture both were bang on.
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
This was followed by something called Aloo Nazakat – this was potatoes with some veggies stuffing inside. This was alright.
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
After that I tried the paneer makhmali – and this was super tasty. Paneer chunks that were marinated and had a really nice filling inside – soft paneer and rich filling. Exceptional.
Moving on to main course – I started with something called Multani paneer darbar – kind of sweet and spicy gravy and some paneer pieces. It had a very achari kind of flavor but I enjoyed this.
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
I also tried something called darbari subzi Kofta – this was mixes veggies Kofta in a sort of spicy gravy. It was alright.
Delhi Darbar Gastronomy
I ate both the subzis with some garlic naan and it was so yummy – perfect seasoning of garlic and sesame seeds.

I also tried their vegetarian dum biryani. This came covered with the roti and was quite decent. It was served with some vegetable Raita which was also quite nice and not sour or anything.

I tried 2 mocktails as well  – shirley temple which was a almost raspberry – strawberry flavored drink and the Mango mania. Mango mania was a combination of Mango and mint and it was really nice.

For dessert I tried their mini gulab jamun, dudhi halwa and some Mango mousse kinda item. Gulab jamun was perfect size and so yummy. Dudhi halwa was perfection too – topped with loads of pistachios and barely greasy. The Mango mouse, known as Mango fool was alright. Nothing great.

Review – Mighty Small Cafe

Watch the full video here 

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐ and half

Zomato peeps were really sweet to give me a voucher for this place. Mighty Small is in between all of the madness at Smashh. This place has a carnival theme to it which I think describes my previous statement! Bright colors, lots of light and awesome music.

Recommend:
Disco idli
Flame Grilled Paneer
Paneer butter masala meal
Paneer biryani meal
Amazing music!

Don’t recommend strongly – the cupcakes!

I read a lot about the disco idli here and so I tried it out. It was mini idlis tossed in ghee, curry leaves, some peppers and some mustard seeds. A very heavy ghee feel to it, but they were pretty decent. Slightly spicy though.

Then I tried the Flame Grilled Paneer – soft paneer pieces with capsicum and the Indian onion salad. The presentation for this dish is pretty interesting.

Then I tried the butter paneer and butter naan meal – the gravy was pretty tasty – not overly creamy and just the right amount of tangy.

I also tried their amritsari chole and kulcha – the chole I didn’t care much about but the kulcha was great.

I also tried their cupcakes – none of them is worth talking about! They were dry and didn’t feel very fresh.

Then I tried the paneer makhani biryani – first impression for this was that the paneer butter masala has been used to make this ? but actually it’s paneer was a bit different. Overall this felt more like a heavier pulao and not so much biryani. It came with all the taam jhaam of having the roti covering for added flavor. It was served with some raita and papad.
