These Are Our Favourite Pakora Places For A Rainy Day Binge

Monsoons in Delhi aren’t really the most enjoyable, but then as Delhiites, we know how to turn that around, right? A pakora and chai combo can fix those monsoon blues right up. So, check out these pakorawalas in Delhi if you haven’t already (you can thank us later!).

PS. If you're a Gurgaon dweller, we have a list for you as well. Check it out here

Khandani Pakodewala

Always crowded, this place makes crazy sales throughout the day. What makes it so popular? The sheer variety of pakoras, and all of them prepared hot for you. Be sure to try out the gobhi and pyaaz pakoras (we love the paneer ones too).

New Vishal Corner

If you want more out of Nehru Place than just Epicuria and all its fancy food, head to this place. The pakoras don’t feel too oily, and are just as delicious as any of the other places on this list.

Paramjeet Fish Pakodewala

No one does fish pakoras better than this place. Sole, Surmai, Sungara; you name it, and they have it. The pakoras taste great, and so does the amazing mint chutney they serve with them.

Vinod Snacks, Central Market

 This small pakora shop is so popular that this entire corner of the Lajpat Nagar market is known as Pakode Wali Gali (ask any vendor and they’ll point you to it). Take your pick from their aloo, palak, paneer, pyaaz, mirchi and gobi pakoras (we can vouch for them all).

Pakode Ki Dukaan

A Karol Bagh favourite, this place has pakoras starting at INR 7! You'll generally witness people lined up for the pakoras and we hear the chutney is out of this world.

Jaipur Namkeen Bhandar

When in Daryaganj, don't miss out on Jaipur Namkeen Bhandar. They serve a ton of yummy pakoras with a delicious, and spicy aloo ki subzi,  which adds to the charm of it.

    Ghaseeta Pehalwan Pakodewala

    On the Tiraha junction of Gali Parathewali, Nai Sadak, and Kinari Bazaar, there's a tiny pakora stall (also commonly known as Rajesh Pakodewala) that witnesses flocks of people gathered around to try their famous Kalmi Vada Pakoda, which is probably the second most popular (and not half as overrated) street food on the block.
