On this recent episode of Tere Gully Mein, Karan Kundrra joined our anchor, Arohi Thatte, for a fun-filled food exploration of Sion. They went on to seek blessings at Sion Koliwada’s Gurudwara Shri Dashmesh Darbar and then ate and drank at Chawla’s Fast Food and Sadguru Juice Centre. We were visiting Gurudwara with the Punjabi-est lad, so we couldn’t miss out on eating langar. While having langar, he told us that the langar food is like no other food and we agreed.
Karan Kundrra Says The Blissful Langar Is Like No Other Food
Karan Kundrra and Arohi Thatte started this episode of Tere Gully Mein by seeking blessings at Sion Koliwada’s Gurudwara Shri Dashmesh Darbar. He is a proper Punjabi munda, so visiting a Gurudwara was mandatory. There is a calmness that enters your body as soon as you step into a Gurudwara and they both experienced it. Karan said that coming to Gurudwara means you leave your pride aside and come and “seva” people.
Gurudwara is a place where everyone is treated equally and Karan said that this treatment of equalness helps to realize that everything in life is temporary. He continued, “All of this is temporary and all of this is very fake.” To this Arohi replied, “If there is something real, that is a langar.” Karan immediately agreed and urged Arohi to go for langar now.
Both of them took their plates of langar, sat and indulged. While they were enjoying the hearty meal, Karan Kundrra said, “Langar jaisa khaana kahin nahi hota.” He went on to say that the langar food tastes the same in every Gurudwara, the taste might differ in the slightest manner but overall it remains the same. We agree, having a langer at a Gurudwara is one of the most wholesome things in the world and that it tastes almost similar at every Gurudwara.
He Recalls The Farm Life Back In Jalandhar, Punjab
Karan Kundrra is a perfect mixture of Punjabi and Malayali genes because his father is Punjabi and his mother is Malayali. When we asked him about his life in Jalandhar, he recounted a childhood incident. He has lived both the city and farm life in Jalandhar. His family has farms but they live in the city. In addition, he informed us that there were tube wells and tractors everywhere on their farms. He went on to say that these tube wells act as refrigerators and would chill beer bottles.
Punjabis love their food and they take pride in their cooking skills. Karan told us that his family would plan and cook desi chicken or mutton once a fortnight in an extremely traditional manner. Right from all the desi masalas to using desi butter and desi chicken. Oh, we are just assuming it was lip-smackingly good as it is made with love in a proper Indian way.
