Masala Trail Serves Street Food From Across India & Bottles Of Keventers

Navni posted on 29 December


Food critic and consultant Osama Jalali has been working towards restoring the city’s food heritage for years, and has finally come up with a restaurant of his own. Masala Trail brings us street food from all corners of India.

All Under One Chaat

We started our street food journey with a warm Tamatar Ki Chaat from Benaras. Spiced tomatoes topped with nuts; it was tangy and refreshing.

We strongly recommend ordering the Bihari Puri or Litti with Chokha {there’s baingan and tamatar} next, followed by the Gujarati Panki with green chutney and green chilli. The Tower Chaat is a must order, too; a tall glass filled with bhallas, paapdi and aloo tikki with plenty of dahi, tamarind chutney and masalas.

One thing we noticed was that nothing’s too spicy, which could be a negative for some but also means you can keep gobbling up more without rushing for water {well, Keventers milkshake is here too}.

Sweet Creams

There’s no better way to end a meal here than the ice cream, fruit and cream-infused Haji’s Fruit Cream. But first, try the ghee dosa which has all the spices embedded in the batter, and is served with a stellar coconut chutney and tomato chutney. The mini chilli idlis are worth a bite, too, if you’re looking for a hint of spice.

So, We're Saying...

Give the gol gappas and bhel puri a miss and head for some alternate chaat from a different part of the country.
