When it comes to food, we as Bemisaal happen to be one of the best restaurants in Amritsar and therefore, make no compromises in the world of delectable taste and eateries! Foodies who stay glued to our blogs must show a little more excitement as they scroll through this one because we are going to take a tour of the best thing happening to you, which undoubtedly is; a five-course meal!
A five-course meal is a full-fledged meal including five courses, as the name already reflects (One can also have 6,7 and 8-course meal, depending on the preference and culture).
The first and the foremost course is traditionally to be eaten in one go and usually excites your hunger even more. It can consist of small bites or dumplings, cheese cubes, if you talk of Indian culture, it can also include kababs, paneer-tikka etc.
One can also call the first-course meal as ‘appetizers’. Appetizers originally mean to increase or heighten your appetite, which they are, indeed, good at!
Course two often stands for liquified dishes, most preferably soups, including sweet corn, thick tomato, hot and sour, mushroom soup and many more. Soups lay a warm layer in your stomach, preparing you for what is to come to next, that is dinner!
If you are already craving the course even before we are done discussing all of it, you can, at any moment, hop straight into one of the best dining restaurants in Amritsar; i.e., us!
Not digressing, soups create a balance of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins in your body along with tempting you to pounce on the upcoming course. They can also keep you healthy and in good shape if opted for.
Third-course meals include salads. Salads remain to be one of the essential courses of a meal. Salads nourish your body with lots of fiber and antioxidants which further protect your body from external damage and ruptures. Salads also manage to cut fats and calories in your body. (Oh, one must add them to their list of favorites, by now!)
The third-course can also include hot and steamed vegetables, at times, depending on the culture of the place and the restaurant.
It is called as the entrèe by some, but most commonly, in layman terms, it is termed as the main course. Us being Indians have our sabzi, dal, roti etc. for the main meal while some have chicken, fish etc., again, depending on the cultures!
The fifth and last course has to be the desserts! The one we all crave and wish were the main course instead, right foodies? Dessert is derived from a French term which originally means to clean the table, depicting that dessert are supposed to be the last course of the meal.
