All happiness depends upon leisurely food… Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba
Speaking of leisure and pleasure of food Nothing can substitute the place of North Indian food in our hearts.
Even the variety of cuisines cannot replace the endearment and craving of North Indian food.
And to satisfy the longing of Desi food Rang de Basanti urban dhaba in HKV is the ultimate destination. Contrasting with the mushrooming culture of cafés and bar Rang de Basanti is a hideout from all fancy theme cafés to Indian dhaba theme. The decor is quirky and interesting, with the yellow walls and a tractor in display emitting dhaba vibes followed by two hypothetical characters – Basant Singh and Beautiful billo which are painted on different walls with whimsical one liners like : Hass mat pagli pyar ho jayega, keep calm and eat naan..

Well before that let me tell you that not only the décor but even the menu is designed in a very chill quirky style.
Starting with the food now(finally!!)
I started with,
SAWA FUTTIYA MUTTON SEEKH
The giant succulent mutton seekh kebab is surely the hugeeeeestt kebab I have ever witnessed. The taste was scrumptious, a perfect fit for king kinda starter.
TANGRI OYE HOYE
The perfect starter to kick start your whole meal as this includes tandoori chicken leg infused with special tadka and rang de basanti also got an amazing surprise for you as they accompany this dish with the special in house drink, interesting right?
ALOO MOTI KARARE
The kadak, masaledaar crisp potatoes and sago balls are delicious. It is crispy, crunchy and very filling. I found the fillings very tasty, oh! I am still drooling over them.
And here comes my favourite vegetarian starter,
The tempting and extremely luscious paneer tikka is surely like ‘aaj khao kal tak yaad karoge’.
I am impressed by the quantity of each and every starter they offer and not only quantity but quality of the dishes is also appreciable.
Anddd it’s time for the main course now,
My main course included,
Chuski nalli meat, this is their most famous main course dish and their specialty too. The dish is well-prepared in a flowing gravy with their special flavours and served with long nalli pieces which can surely make anyone drool over it; BHAYANKAR KEEMA KALEJI, the utterly tasty keema kaleji have my heart, though I was so much into nalli meat that I didn’t eat it much and now while writing this I am craving for this, bad luck eh! Next is MACHLI- JAL KI RANI HAI, this punjabi style fish curry tasted delish, this surely needs a try.
The dishes were accompanied by chicken pulao, raita and garlic naan which were very well-prepared.
The dishes surely had some magic spell, one knock and it bounces the spoon back.Well, I literally can’t stop appreciating the quantity and taste of the dishes of this restaurant. Buttt I need to continue as I have introduce you to these amazing, outstanding and superbly made DESSERTS which are
Hot G-JAM FUDGE
