The Punjabi Dhaba – Tandoori Taal
Taandoori Taal is an authentic Punjabi Dhaba and an iconic outlet in Indiranagar, Bangalore / Bengaluru. With the grand success of its first outlet on the Double Road, the newest outlet is on the 12th Main Road. The new outlet is much larger in terms of space and creativity on the walls. The ambiance is typical of an Indian Village with large portrait of a roadside highway scene. The interiors are made of different items from the past like the radio which is more than 50 years old and so on. Small cart in the form of trucks keep on moving around the outlet. The whole experience of food and music comes so well together at Tandoori Taal.
We tried the Tomater ka shorba, the taste was delicious with an aftertaste of pepper. The soup has a mild flavor of dhaniya or coriander. Love it and a perfect start to a much awaited experience. We also tried a couple of drinks like the Sikanjee and the Aam Panna. Both the drinks are quite popular here and perfect with the starters. The Lassi was of medium consistency and was silky in texture.
Next we tried a couple of house specialty appetizers like the Cheese kurkuri, Peshawari paneer tikka, Tawa mushroom and the Tandoori Do Khele Ke Phool. The Cheese Kurkuri is a deep fried roll with cheese stuffed in it. The Peshawari Paneer Tikka had soft chunks of Paneer with light marination. The Tawa Mushroom was spicy with large pieces of mushrooms prepared over tawa. The Tandoori Do Khele Ke Phool had broccoli and cauliflower marinated in spices, the taste was amazing.
For the main course we had the Subz handi, Corn Methi Malai and the Dal Makhani. The Subz Handi was a amalgamation of different vegetables and cooked in a semi rich tomato gravy. The Corn Methi Malai was an excellent preparation and was quite creamy. The Dal Makhani is cooked over night to give it excellent flavor and the aftertaste of garlic. We tried these curries with the Roomali roti, Makai ki roti and the Chakori Warki. Don’t miss the Chakori Warki which is a fried paratha. The Tawa Veg biryani was made with mild spices and was one of the best items on the menu. An excellent preparation and a must try!
For desserts we had the Pista Gulab jamun and the Malai kulfi. The Pista Gulab Jamun was slightly warm and was filled with flavors and topped with almond pieces. The Malai Kulfi was made inhouse by slowly cooking milk for hours until it is only left with malai.
The experience at Tandoori Taal is of a typical road side highway dhaba. The food and ambiance here is nothing less than a perfect setting. The Manager here Mr.Bapi Sen made sure everything was perfect.
