Has the coronavirus pandemic disrupted your plan to take that long trip? Is the ongoing lockdown making you crave going off-road? Fret not. If you can’t go to the highway, Rocky, Mayur, Prashant, and Abhinandan – the team behind shows like Highway On My Plate, Vital Stats of India, Jai Hind, and Rocky and Mayur's Food Xpress – will bring the highway to you!

So, here goes the newest offering from Newslaundry: Highway On My Podcast. The creators of the much loved TV travel show revisit their travels across India, sharing stories, anecdotes, trivia, and — for when the roads are open and inviting again — recommendations on food, culture, people, and much more.

In the second episode of Highway On My Podcast, Rocky, Mayur and Abhinandan are joined by Prashant Sareen, co-director of Highway On My Plate, as they take a trip down memory lane on their travels across Punjab. They discuss the finesse of the Amritsari kulcha, which everyone absolutely loves except Abhinandan, who finds it overrated, and the unparalleled delicacies of Kesar Da Dhaba and why it has achieved its iconic status. The team waxes poetic about “Atta Chicken”, a little-known gem of a dish from Kotkapura, and why you shouldn’t miss the lassi in Amritsar’s Ahuja Lassi.

Bonus: They also talk about how they played a tiny role in catalyzing better Indo-Pak relations. Want to know how? Tune in.
