Mast Kalandar,  the North Indian quick
service restaurant is celebrating its significance of six years by having a great ‘parantha festival’. And we just had to try out their specialities, so we decided to go there on a sunny Saturday afternoon.  And when we stepped in we realized that Mast Kalandar doesn’t boast of an opulent ambiance. The one floored space is definitely a quick bite destination amidst the mayhem of your hectic work schedule. While we seated ourselves on the red couches and looked throught the menu we were amazed at the variety of choices that this place offers.

And instead of tasting just the specialty of the day, we ordered all the six different varieties of paranthas, which is offered throughout the week. It was a 'tandoorful' of choices and we were truly spoilt. We were flabbergasted when the food arrived as portions of stuffed paranthas seemed large. Realizing our folly, we decided to take small bites of the paranthas that were laid in front of us. 

There was takatak mooli parantha which was stuffed with mildly spiced mooli and tasted simply delicious with pindi chole , the healthy doodhi parantha was well, just healthy,  but however paneer-e-gobhi parantha; ranga rang gajar matar and achaari paneer parantha were the star dishes of the day. And with helpings of daal makhani, Punjabi paneer and paneer do pyaza, we were completely lost in a world of authentic Punjabi khana. The paranthas were scrumptious and it was an extreme delight to bite on to them. Each paranthas came with dollops of butter and great stuffing.

The curries were cooked well and were not exaggerated with spices which made it easier for us to enjoy the flavours. We definitely recommend the achaari paneer parantha with dal makhani and paneer do pyaza. By the end of this tasting session (which seemed like a never ending journey) we had become true parantha connoisseurs. To end our gourmet experience there were delightful desserts. The gulab jamoon was piping hot and we savoured every juicy mouthful of it.  The jalebi was crispy and it palpated our taste buds even more.  So, if you are a die-hard parantha lover and love everything that’s over the top then this is a place to visit. The parantha festival ends on May 15.
A hearty meal for two will cost Rs. 250-300

I have been a regular customer of Mast Kalandar since over a year now and I personally feel their food quality is going down day by day (atleast at Marathalli outlet). The adorable home made taste is slowly vanishing. Mast Kalandar better try to retain that as taste is the only factor that drives their popularity.
