One thing that Amritsar can promise you is good food around any corner! Even for just a weekend, visiting Amritsar can be one of the most heartwarming experiences. The city is colloquially known as Ambarsar and is the holiest place for Sikhs, with over 30 million people visiting it every year for pilgrimage. Amritsar is also home to Harmandir Sahib, which is globally known as the Golden Temple. Although a Guwahati to Bagdogra flight can be much shorter, it will definitely be worth your time once to fly to Amritsar to try their special Amritsari Kulcha.
Here’s a look at the must-visit Amritsari Kulcha shops in the city.
Pehlwaan Kulche Wala is located in Nimak Mandi and serves one of the best Amritsari Kulchas. The kulchas are stuffed with different vegetables and are made only to order. The kulchas just melt in your mouth. They are loaded with pure desi ghee and complemented with chole, which together combine for a heavenly gastronomic experience.
Jaan Nutri Kulcha
This eatery is located near DAV College and is one-of-a-kind. These kulchas are made with nutri-nugget, which is a form of soyabean. Loaded with butter, homely herbs and spices, the dish is usually paired with lassi or chaach for a more wholesome and rustic feel. Your mouth will be left with a buttery and velvety texture after.
Instead of getting those flight tickets from Mumbai to Kochi, why not visit Amritsar this time? Kulcha Land is located right opposite a major shopping center, which makes it one of the most visited kulcha places in Amritsar. The kulchas here are baked and filled with flavorsome stuffing, complemented with a tall glass of lassi.
Monu Kulcha Hut
Located on Lokhara Road, this eatery offers kulchas that are amazingly crisp and have a thick coating of butter all over them. What makes these kulchas even more appealing are the additions of chana curry and onion chutney. At Monu Kulcha Hut, the kulchas are paired with mango lassi instead of chaach, but is flavourful nonetheless.
