”If the smell of char-grilled murgh tikka puts a smile on your face, if a tandoor roti & a perfect saag make your day, if a glass of Patiala lassi makes you feel like heaven or if a bhangra beat invariably makes you start jumping, you are Punjabi By Nature. We don’t just cook. We take the songs from the sarso fields, lazzat from the lanes of Amritsar and spices from the streets of Lahore with all the relishes, colours and madness in between and bring those straight to your table. Everyone has a Punjabi hidden inside, all you need is some delicious butter chicken to realize it.”
Punjabi by Nature Dubai is an authentic Punjabi cuisine inspired from roadside “Dhaba” which is a popular all over India. They bring to you specially designed culinary experience that transport you to the colorful and exuberant land of Punjab.

The new summer launch was my favorite Mango Lassi served in cute shot glasses for us, it was a refreshing treat to myself after a long working day at the office. A must try at Punjabi By Nature.
Now comes Chutney Wale Machchi De Tikke, cubes of Cream Dory fish in green flavored marinated roasted in tandoor to perfection. The spices infused so well and the mint an dthe coriander marination was something i am always fond of. Served with a delectable tangy and light salad.
Arbi Di Tikkiyan, yam cutlets topped with a special blend and shallow fried crisp. I have never tasted any Arbi Tikkas before and this one was one of the best, so flavorful and served with a mustard based cream chutney, which added so much character to the appetizer. In love with the Chutney served.
Shikanjvi, traditional lemonade with a bhangra beat. The first one was in Delhi and now the same one at Punjabi By Nature. So refreshing and soothing, replica of the Delhi Road siders, hats off to Chef Vineet.
Bhatti Da Murg, Chicken in a special marinate with mustard oil, a special bhatti masala and roasted in Tandoor. The light, soft, tender meat in mymouth. Spices infused till the last bite, the bhatti masala was awesome, a delicious treat to oneself.
Achari Paneer Tikka, thymal flavored cottage cheese and the charm of tandoor, i had to ask twice about the quality of the paneer, so soft and tender. It was not even coming with the fork, so deliciously prepared and spiked with calcium and tomato.
Thandai, chilled almond flavored drink with a hint of cardamon.
The mains were as delicious and presentable as the starters, but my heart will always long to try the Appetizers over here.
Mann Sabat, Urad whole simmered overnight and finished tomatoes and dried fenugreek, butter and cream. The most lighest Dal, as asked to the Chef he said he made this only for UAE people as they are very health conscious. So they get to taste the same Dal Makhani with the lightest butter used.
Lachcha Paratha and Butter Naan, was equally soft, fresh from the kitchen.
Angrezi Chicken Tikka Masala, tandoor roasted boneless Chicken, simmered in onions and tomato masala. A flavorful and playful dish i would rather say, as it went very well with the Parathas served.
Bhuna Gosht, succulent sir fried lamb with caramelized onions.
Now comes my special part of the meal the Dessert. I tried the Special Pumpkin Halwa of the day. It was very flavorful, i actually dint knew it was made out of pumpkin as the ingredients of the butter, pistachios, dry fruits was so perfectly simmered.
This is one of those places where i would love to take my family, spent a good time and enjoy the delicious food. Everything was so perfect from the service, i must mention here a big thank you to the most chirping and smiling host Mr.Happy, he made me so happy!!
