Before explaining about all the dishes we tried, which were, in fact, all lovely, I want to talk about the standout dish here, the DAHI KEBABS. The dahi kebabs there are to die for, so sinful and mouthwatering. It is soft, crispy, crunchy, sweet and savory at the same time. Paired with the chutneys, they taste heavenly.
Coming to the other appetisers, we tried the paneer tikka which was coated in a spicy marinade and roasted to perfection in the tandoor. The smoky taste was spot on. The pav bhaji there is quite good too, it’s loaded with butter and all-natural because you can get to know by the rich brown colour. It’s not bright orange or red like many places that use artificial colours in it. Here at Delhiwala, they take quality seriously and use only locally sourced ingredients and avoid using any additives. I really appreciate that!
In the main course we decided to try half portions of everything, we took a couple of flatbreads to try- the stuffed kulcha, garlic naan, chilli cheese naan and paneer naan. Everything was delicious and well made and paired well with the malai kofta (creamy and thick gravy that’s made with khoa, cream or malai and cashew), kadai paneer (it was a tangy tomato gravy simmered with paneer pieces and bell peppers) and dal makhani
To wash it all down, we had the lassi and jal jeera which were again really good. The hospitality was good and the ambience has a look of an old brick warehouse. The USP is food that’s light on the stomach and in the pocket!
