It’s not frequent that we visit a restaurant whose owners have put out a lovely write up about them and their dishes on social media.
One such place we visited, breaking the barriers in our mind after reading a post on PEO from Shreya Jain was Pink Turbann.
I have never been to Delhi. But from past 2 decades I am a fan of Chhole Bhature served by a guy in Surat and for me he was synonymous to authenticity.
In Pune we have already tried Chhole Bhature from Raju Uncle k Bhature outside Bhartiya Vidyapeeth Campus, who serves them delicious indeed but then reaching there from Baner is one Herculean task.
One such lazy Saturday morning we were browsing through internet for some yummy breakfast place on PEO/Zomato. We read the post and added it to our go-to list. With turn of events eventually we went for a lunch at Pink Turbann.
We were driving down from Baner, near Medi-point Hospital, Google Maps said your destination is in right and we were surprised to see a small residential lane and thought
that this is some Map glitch; but then we remembered the post and she wrote that “it is in by-lane”. We parked our car on the main road and started walking, crossed 3-4 houses in the lane and small bungalow on the right side with Pink Turbann written was found to our delight.
It’s a small place with 2 room seating area, one room has table and chair setup and other room has Indian sitting with mattresses and tyres to sit on.
After wisely going through our options, we chose to sit down for our lunch. We had a nice little chat with Shreya and Aunty who is the owner/chef. They told us about how theidea called Pink Turbann started and how Aunty likes to cook and serve.
We had a quick look at menu and we ordered Jalandar wale Chhole -Bhature, Kadhi Chawal, Lassi and Butter Milk.
Jalandar Wale Chhole Bhature :- Chhole was perfect for us and also for one of our friend, who went after we told him about this.
They served it with 2 Bhature stuffed with paneer, aloo chaat, onion, green chilly and mint-coriander chutney.
Kadhi Chawal :- Kadhi was served the way North India likes it, sour and hot pakoras dipped in it served with steamed rice.
Lassi and Butter-milk were as usual.
We are definitely going back to try another dishes from menu but Chhole Bhature will be constant and this place is one of our favourites in Pune.
