It's a cuisine reminiscent of undivided Punjab, where cooking styles were rustic but flavours robust. The Frontier Food Festival at The Great Kabab Factory in Sector 34, Chandigarh, culls out favourites from frontier cuisine, which originated in the northwestern states of Punjab, Rajasthan, and parts of modern day Pakistan. The menu goes beyond the usual expectations and brings in the likes of Sikandri raan, Baloochi ke Tinkey, Machhi Amritsari, Murgh Seekh, Nali Amritsari, Subz Mewe ki Seekh to list a few. We would recommend the Sikandri Raan for those who like a smoky, tandoori flavour.
Frontier food is prepared with a delicate mix of spices, unlike the quintessential butter and cream-laden dishes popular in north Indian fare. Marination of the meats is the key and the presentation is rugged with large chunks of meat, seafood and vegetables marinated overnight and cooked in a clay tandoor. To add a musical element to the festival, there are live performances on the weekend with the bands Green Chorus and Guruz performing on Saturdays and Sundays respectively. The festival is on till March 10.
