Wanna b pranked..visit Prankster !!

Want to relive your college days…yesss !! So visit this college based theme restaurant is Sector 29 , Gurgaon. Its till date my fav & best theme based restaurant , with amazing decor and quite spacious. Sector 29 is the fast growing market of Gurgaon with so many restaurants. Prankster is a colossal single floor restaurant with school based theme.

As I step into the lobby, a large upside down red horse welcomes me glasses on all side. The stairs had an amazing led decoration of upside down images and a notice board just like in school days.An old camera with roll developed at the corner. Inside the restaurant they have varied sections like the Classroom, Library, Chemistry Lab, Canteen, Parking Lot,  Amphitheater, etc. Its also called the Food & Brewery campus of Gurgaon 🙂 . The interiors at Prankster are gracefully done with chemistry lab section having images emblazoned on the walls, beakers set with blooming plants, library setup done with chandelier created out of open books, table lamps set on pile of books and a high definition projector to view media, bunker beds, the amphitheater with the multi level seating & the parking lot with a line up of  Lambretta scooters converted into comfortable seats with backrest with tables settled mid & a jeepsy. The seating is appt to section and very comfortable. Library has chairs on both side of a long table with beautiful lamp shades while the chemistry lab does the same with high stools .Unlikely classroom section has seats joined to tables, taking us back to school memories.

They have a big bar section with

We has our seating inside the classroom which has a blackboard, high definition projector, a multi coloured painting of Einstein and lamp shades made by using big paint brushes. More than anything, Prankster surprises you with its unparalleled innovation serving the “nostalgic progressive cuisine”, connecting the foodies with their nostalgic years memories in modern way.

To start with in Veg, we had Nitro cooked Dahi Bhalla, Papdi (4/5) which is an ice-cream that has the exact flavor of dahi bhalla, believe it or not, its a savory dish. Basically its a bhalla mixed with curd ,chilled icecream balls, flavored with dehydrated tamarind chutney and a -20 degree nitro papri. Authentic being crunchy !!  Pao Bhaji Zinker Burger(5/5) is another innovative dish which was full of pranks & is similar to mumbai vada pao. Its served inside the Rubik’s cube where some of them are empty. It has same authentic & spicy vadapao flavor with chili chutney. Reminds me of my college canteen tikki bun. Next was Bun Cholle(5/5),  which was closed bun with chickpeas inside. It was very soft and full of flavors. In Non veg , we had Tempura Fried Prawns with Podi (5/5)– crispy fried prawns served on a stainless steel ruler diaognally with flowers around. Tender Tandoori Lamb Chops (5/5) which were scrumptious. Very tender, and at end clear bone was visible served with onion lachchas.

Must mention is the pizza (5/5) which had flakky base just like our canteen aloo patties. It was well cooked & full of crunchiness. Toppings had all fresh veggies. Must try dish.

In Main course we had, Compressed Paneer Barrels in Thai Curry (4/5)  which was thai curry having panner rolls. Very soft and authentic.Daal Makhani (4/5) was again full of flavors and creamy texture.Served with butter lachcha paranthas. You feel like binging on the food here !

In dessert we had Jalebi with Saffron Ice Cream (5/5) – Have no words to express this dish. Love it to the core. Jalebi was plated in 3 forms as in  big jalebi circles, papad and pearls (boondi ) all served with the saffron ice cream. Again a must try here ! Another sweet dish was Rose kheer. It was live presented by Chef Harangad, where he used liquid nitrogen to garnish rose flowers and served over in house kheer.

The food was totally par excellence with its creative twist. Prices are pocket friendly and must visit place house/office parties 🙂

Made in Punjab is a famous restaurant by Zorawar Kalra. It has many outlets in different cities like Noida, Bangalore. As the name suggests it serves the very famous and delicious North Indian Punjabi delicacies, which are rich in flavor with spicy preparations and traditional to the core.

I visited this restaurant with my family at Dlf Cyber city, ground floor, near Farzi cafe.Since it was a friday night, this place was heavily packed. Since we reserved the seats, didn’t face any problem. As we entered, they have beautiful, spacious ambience.Comfortable seating areas with enough space for movement. Very cozy and warmth. They have a diff bar area , family sitting area and buffet section.Punjabi tracks been played on the background.

We started with Tokri Chaat and the Popeye Paaji ki Chaat (5/5). Chaats were lip smacking, fully stuffed and crunchy served in Dahi with chutney, murmure & anaar  toppings. Paneer Barrel Tikka(5/5) – Their own version of the classic Paneer Tikka, having crispy paneer balls soft & juicy from inside, stuffed with dry fuits. We also tried honey chilli potato(4/5), which was served hot and cripsy. The servers ensured that every table has chutney, onions and papads in full. Loved the presentation.

In non veg, we ordered Lol (5/5), mutton minced patty(4/5), murgh malai tikka(4/5) and roasted chicken (4/5). Everything was properly cooked and full of juicy flavours. In cocktails, we had Nashili Chai (5/5) which is their own unique tea concoction with an vodka flavor @ d end & served with cutting chai glasses each stuffed with orange slice. 3 diff types of shots, booming with liquid nitrogen. In mocktail, we tried spicy guava (5/5), full of spicy-ness and flavor.

Since we were full, we ordered less in Main course. Daal Makhani (5/5) with  rice & Lachcha paranthas are my all time fav. Everything was served hot with amazing presentation. Dal Makhani was bang on. full of flavours , aroma and texture, how a punjabi would love and go mad for. At end, on chef’s recommendation, we tasted Guchchi Pulao (5/5).It was a medium spicy rich dish prepared as an assortment of rice, spices , veggies and guchchi (mushroom). It was lip-smacking delicious. Must try!!

From their dessert section, we tried nukkad jalebi(5/5) with rabri and stuffed gulab jamun. Jalebi was amazingly sweet and well flavoured with rabri. Stuffed gulab jamun were filled with hot chocolate and had an amazing presentation.

Sirke wale pyaaz.. dhaba style recipe!!

Hello friends,

I am back again with yet new and authentic dhaba style recipe of Sirke wale pyaaz, which are even called as Pickled Onion.If you are not aware of what  it means,let me tell you “Sirka” means vinegar and “pyaaz” is onions. Together it means pickled onions. Whenever i visit any fine dine restaurant, i start my main course with sirke wale pyaaz only. These onions go well with maximum punjabi dishes like daal makhani, paneer butter masala and so on.Every Punjabi, reading this, will understand what i am saying.

Follow the step by step guide below and learn an easy way of making Vinegar Onion recipe or Sirke wala pyaaz recipe at home.

Ingredients:

  1. 1kg small or pearl onion (easily available in shops)
  2. 1 tbsp white Non synthetic fruit vinegar /apple cider
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 small beetroot (chakundar)
  5. 1 tbsp salt (level it , dont full to much)
  6. 1 tbsp sugar (same level it..not too much)
  7. 1 elaichi (for essence /flavor)

Prep time : 20 mins

Recipe:

  1. Peel and rinse the onions properly.
  2. Using the knife, make a cross on onions but not slice them full (see images)
  3. place all the onions in a glass jar or ceramic jar . (Vinegar can react with steal utensils)
  4. Take a beetroot.peel it and slice it into small pieces (suitable for eating).
  5. Take a pan, add 1cup water. Boil it and add above cut beetroot pieces.
  6. Add 1tbsp each of salt and sugar. Stir it well. close the lid and let water boil for 5mins. take pan off the gas and let it cool. Don’t remove the lid else full flavor and essence will evaporate.
  7. Add the vinegar to your bottle or jar of onions, such that its only half filled. Not more. The Pickled onion taste better with vinegar + water combination. so make sure you don’t add more vinegar.
  8. close the lid of bottle & shake it.
  9. Now check if pan water is at room temperature (ie not too hot), pour it in the bottle. Let the beetroot pieces be added too. If you dont wanna eat beetroot with pickled onion, you can remove it from water before).
  10. let the onion + beetroot sit in the vinegar-water solution for 12-15 hours in refrigerator.
  11. Now its ready. Shake it well, when you use it.
