Delhi Food and Tour

8 Feb

Delhi in particular is blessed with a mind boggling of street food from all over India as well as some from abroad. The list of just Indian food available here can easily fill a page or two, but listing some of more popular traditional Indian snacks are Gol Gappe, Aaloo Tikki, Chole Bhatoore, Dahi Bhalle, Poori Kachori, Chaat, Pakode, Samosa, Bhel poori and many many more. Momos (dumplings) along with some other Chinese food like Chowmein cooked in an unique Indian style has gained some popularity too.

Almost every locality in Delhi has it’s own claim to fame in form of a good street food vendor. In fact, many people will give directions or identify a locality on basis of a famous eating joint.  Hard to believe ? Well, you should ask someone, preferably a local about Paranthe Waali Gali, Matke Waali Gali, Pan Mandi and a few more. Their only claim to fame is the delectable street food served there. Even after opening of countless branded food chains in prime locations and truckloads of money spent on promotion and advertisements, Indian street food has retained it’s popularity and is infact getting popular in other countries. A visit to India is incomplete if you don’t have Indian street food at least once.
