Cuisine of Jalandhar is reflective of it’s vivid culture, fertile topography and robust appetites. Punjabi food is prevalent all across North India but Jalandhar is the heart and soul of Punjabi cuisine like most of Punjab. Owing to the highly fertile agricultural belt, there is an abundance of natural produce available throughout Punjab and Jalandhar enjoys a hearty supply of grains, dairy and vegetables. The landscape is dotted with poultry farms, which leads to a heavy use of chicken in local dishes. For breakfast, Punjabis living in Jalandhar favors stuffed parathas, filled with all kinds of grated veggies and paneer. As lunch time rolls around the natives pause the day by feasting on ethnic dishes like, chole bhature, mah ki dal, rajma chawal, chicken curry, shahi paneer, Punjabi kadhi and matar paneer. In winter months natives turn to, palak paneer, sarson ka saag with makki di roti and aloo gobhi. During summer months locals are known to beat the heat with an excellent coolant, lassi. This beverage is synonymous to Punjabis and is widely consumed across Jalandhar. Jalebis, kheer, kulfi falooda tops off any Punjabi meal nicely with their sweet nutty flavor.
