How Many Of These 10 Famous Delhi Dishes Have You Already Tried?

    Delhi is famous for a lot of things, but one thing that Delhi is primarily identified with is food. A true-blue Delhiwalla will know their food {and where to get it from} better than anyone else. Be it street-side golgappas or the fancy food available at iconic cafes, a Delhiite has tasted it all. Check out these dishes to see if you qualify as a pure Dilliwala.

    Golgappa from Prabhu Chaat Bhandaar

    This is a city favourite that attracts hungry souls from all over the city. In front of the UPSC building, the golgappas {not paanipuri or puchka} here are a hot attraction and only available for a few hours before they’re sold out!

    Butter Chicken from Gulati's

    Veg Gulati

    Available Online

    A Dilli oldie, you’ll find a long waiting line outside their outlet at any given point in time. One bite of the butter chicken {rich, thick and just the right amount of yoghurt} and you’ll see why.

    Chur Chur Naan from Sanjay's

    Every nook and cranny in the Amar Colony area has some great food to offer, and one of them is Sanjay Chur Chur Naan. This spot serves some super-stuffed chur chur naan, along with a killer range of lassis to go with them. The naan is the clear winner here; it’s not just stuffed well, but are also served with daal makhani, chholey and raita. The service is insanely fast, too!

    Chhole Bhature from Sita Ram Diwan Chand

    Possibly the most popular joint for Chhole Bhature in the city, Sita Ram Diwan Chand starts its day early, and by 9am, is already on the verge of crowded, with a herd of regular customers. Their paneer-laced bhatura and spiced channa served with pickled carrots is something else.

    Kachori from Nagpal

    Baba Nagpal Corner

    Lajpat Nagar - 4, Delhi

    Crispy kachori served with spicy aloo sabzi is what we love at Nagpal {apart from their chhole bhature, of course}. The kachori combined with the simple but delicious aloo sabzi keeps us coming back for more.

    Aloo Tikki from Ujala Tikki Wala

    Aloo tikki snobs who don’t like slushy aloo drenched in chutney to make up for the lack of crunch, this is the place. The chutneys have a really good balance, perfectly sweet and sour served with kaccha pyaaz {another winner} to add that extra crunch.

    Aloo Chaat from Pappu Chaat Bhandar

    Situated on KG Marg, Pappu Chaat Bhandar is a favourite for many when it comes to delicious and spicy aloo chaat. Portion sizes are substantial here {bigger than most places} and never do you come across soggy pieces {since everything is prepared fresh}. The two-man team here keeps making fresh batches of the aloo chaat, which is tossed in a spicy and tangy chutney with masala and served hot.

    Chicken Tikka Roll from Rule The Rolls

    Rule The Rolls

    Khan Market, Delhi

    The menu is pretty straightforward with the usual tikkas and rolls. We say you opt for the chicken tikka rolls, because they’re going to be unlike anything you’ve ever had before. The rolls were juicy {to say the least} and tasted divine! From the marination on the tikkas to the softness of the rumali roti, the food here is a pure 10/10.

    Biryani from Anand

    Anand Restaurant

    Connaught Place, Delhi

    The biryani here, unlike the ones we’re used to, isn’t orange and spice-laden. Served in steel plates, you get a generous portion of the rice with a side of gravy and onions dusted with masala and green chutney. It’s the kind of biryani you can have every day without feeling full to the brim.

    Momos from Dolma Aunty

    Dolma Aunty Momos

    Lajpat Nagar - 2, Delhi

    Dolma Aunty Momos is one such outlet that has been serving the city their momos for a long while now. A trip to Lajpat Nagar’s Central Market isn’t ever complete without a plate of the steaming momos that comes with the spiciest chutney that clearly has a secret recipe we want to get our hands on.
