Delhi is ‘the’ place for the foodies. Ever ask a Delhiite what are the things that really stand out for them about the city, it would be the rich history and the mouth-watering food. This city offers such a rich diversity of cuisines that for those who live to eat, Delhi is the place to be for them!
From Old Delhi’s Chandni Chowk to New Delhi’s rocking cafes, Delhi is replete with many culinary delights. Delhi people are hooked for life with these tasty treats.
So without any further ado, I present to you my list of yummilicious junk food in Delhi 😉
If here is one thing Delhiites are craving all the time is for the street food. Eating on the streets of Delhi it’s like a crash course in the history and the culture of the place. The unmatchable chaat variety is unique in its own way like; Aloo Chaat, Dahi Bhala, Aloo Tikki, Samosa and the most favourite of all, Golgappas. No guide book can actually pinpoint the stop points to taste this mouth- watering chaat; they are available in every street.
If you are willing to travel a bit the following places are famous for the chaats; UPSC building, Shahjahan Road, Bittu Tikki Wala, Karol Bagh, Daulat Ki chaat, Chandni Chowk, Natraj dahi bhalle wala.
The perfect start to a healthy morning in most Delhi households is Paranthas with a touch of butter. Choose from a plain one or select a stuffing of your choice that includes potatoes, cauliflower, radish, eggs, keema, bananas or even last night’s left over dal-the options are galore.
The famous places in Delhi where you can pamper your taste buds with yummiest paranthas are Paranthe Wali Gali Chandni Chowk, Moolchand Paranthe Wala and Qutab Institutional area.
- Butter Chicken
It is one of the most gratifying dishes on this planet. Agree? Today this dish can be found in every non vegetarian restaurants and highway dhabas. Butter chicken is best enjoyed with rice and butter naan.
There isn’t any specific place to enjoy this fingure licking dish. still few of the famous places are Rajender Place, Ashok Vihar, Pandara Road…
- Chole Bhature
I advise you all if you planning to try this dish it is enjoyed on an empty stomach as its rich, spicy and heavy. This is the most popular dish in the list of Delhiites. No big deal if you will find this on the breakfast menu of restaurants across the capital.
- Kathi Roll
Kathi rolls are available everywhere easily but Delhi has its own delicious variants. This is one food available in frozen options, restaurants, and street stalls. Kathi rolls are best option to have on the go. This is my most favourite junk food 😉
The tasty rolls can be enjoyed at Nizams’s CP, Khan Chacha and Green Park Van.
It is the most famous and tasty snack available. Call them momo, dim-sum or dumplings it is very easy to find vendors outside every office, housing area and market place. Momos are available both in vegetarian and non-vegetarian options and are enjoyed with fiery red sauce. Momos can be served fried or steamed as per an individual’s taste!
My all time favourite momos are from Momo Mia, Dilli haat, INA, fried momos from QD’s, Hudson Lane, Delhi University and Wheat Momos from Brown Sugar, GK.
This South Indian cuisine has actually stolen many hearts. Dosa, Sambar, Idli, Vada all these have become Delhi’s favourite. This is one meal that can be enjoyed in a five star restaurant and can be delighted on streets stalls.
You must have heard “Khaane ke baad kuch meetha hojaye.”In our households having something sweet after the meal is a must. Jalebis, rabrifalooda or kulfis are all favourites. Kulfi has become so innovative that now you can find flavoured kulfi served by Kulfiano, Hauz Khas Village. My all time favourite.
