Situated in a crowded market place at the Hall Bazaar in Amritsar, “Bade Bhai ka Brothers Dhaba” is an exciting eatery offering valet parking to its guests which is a great relief to the hungry souls. Pocket friendly menu and warm cheerful environment invites many to choose from their anytime dining vegetarian fare; Breakfast, lunch or dinner as well as quick anytime snack.
This dhaba is fallout of partition between two brothers where elder brother called himself Brothers Dhaba and younger one continues with the old name- Bhrawan da dhaba (Punjabi name of brothers dhaba). Hearsay is that all the old popular chefs joined hands with the elder brother.
We decided to check out this dhaba. As we enter, colorful, traditional paintings welcomed us to the family hall. The fun and festivity at the outer hall merges with the fragrant aroma coming from the desi ghee cooked food. On being seated, we were promptly offered the choice of offerings ranging from daal makhani, kadi pakoda , shahi paneer, chana masala, rajma, sarson ka saag and much more.
The thali (125) was an immediate choice as it offered the variety of food to sample. Dal Makhani had a reddish hue which only comes with the overnight slow cooking in a traditional copper utensil on wood fire. Not only was it a treat for eyes but it was certainly one of the best we ever had. The paneer was amazingly soft and the creamy gravy went very well with the crisp from outside and soft from inside laccha parathas who’s each layer could easily be separated.
The tangy besan kadhi (85) made with chatti ki lassi (not curd) had soft succulent pakodas and is another mouth-watering combo to be enjoyed with boiled rice. Though we were full by this time we still could not resist the authentic sarsoon ka saag loaded with a generous amount of butter and served with makki ki roti. It was clearly a joy.
We ended our meal with Kheer and Brother’s special Tuti Fruity Icecream.
The overall experience could have been further accentuated if the ambience was more towards rustic village with food being served in brass or copper utensils.
Amritsar is a foodie delight with almost every second place serving food to die for. But Brother’s is the place which makes life worth living.
