Punjabi Cuisine in AjitgarhIf you truly want to sample the best Punjabi food in Ajitgarh, you should look for an invitation in a Punjabi home. There is indeed a difference between home cooked food and restaurant meals. At the restaurants, chefs often deviate from the original recipe; but at home people generally tend to stick to tradition, especially when there is a guest coming.
It is to be remembered that Punjab is a major producer of wheat and milk. That is why by tradition Punjabi dishes have good dollop of clarified butter in them. However, today many health conscious people have started using sunflower oil instead of clarified butter. Another point to remember is that, though Punjabis are predominantly non vegetarian, they also prepare many vegetarian dishes. Their Sarson da Sag and Makki Di Roti have almost become a cliché. Rajma and rice is another of their popular food made famous all over the world.
Another point to remember is that although Punjabi cuisine is more famous for its chicken and meat dishes, fish is also used extensively in different preparation. Most fishes used are fresh water variety.
