Rains And Pakoras: These Places In Gurgaon Remind You Why It's A Perfect Pairing

Vatsala posted on 08 July

Come monsoon and most of us think of going to the nearest dhaba or roadside stall for deep-fried pakoras and hot tea poured in small glasses to wrap our hands around. The formerly go-to Indian snack is now only remembered when you need comfort food, so head to these places in Gurgaon to indulge some nostalgia {and paneer, aloo or bread pakoras}.


Chaudhary’s is your go-to halwai on a monsoon evening – walk in to buy just pakoras, but you will undeniably get tempted by all the other sweets he has to offer. You just know you’re going to go home with a box full of assorted mithai, so wave bye-bye to your diet plans!

Tea Halt

With kulhad chai and desi pakoras, Tea Halt is great for monsoon evening get-togethers. You could also go for something like their pizza samosa, if you’re in the mood for a change.

Sit in this adorable cafe that has an amazing array of chai, perfectly accompanied by their aptly named Baarish Wale Pakore and your best friends. For more street food feels, try the Bun Samosa. Basically, Chaayos should be your go-to on any rainy day.

Nukkadwala, with its cute interiors and outdoor seating, is all about happy simplicity. It offers clean, hygienic street food for those who love the style but hate the germs. Their Chicken Pakodas are great but, in our opinion, nothing can beat the classic paneer pakoras.

You can munch on pakoras and fried fish at TriBong which offers both North Indian and Bengali food. The open seating and friendly servers make for a great experience, so you can enjoy the monsoons with your friends and family.

Pakode Wali Aunty

We know you’ll agree when we say that the absolute perfect way to eat pakoras is on the roadside. Recommended by Gurgaon locals, the pakode wali aunty sits in Sector 56 at the far end of the HUDA market and serves up freshly-fried delicacies. Stand around her or sit in your car with loud music, these are best eaten hot.
