One Can't Miss The Filmy Naan & Jamun Shikanji At This Veg Restaurant
What Makes It Awesome?
With the Earth facing climate changes and shrinking wildlife, veg is the way to go on most days. “Actually people talk a lot of about going out to eat non-veg but in our country, most are fasting on many days,” says SP Sengar, the man who runs Chawla Dillivala Pure Vegetarian outlet near the mall in Laxmi Nagar. This is the only franchise by Chawla Dillivala that serves vegetarian food. Delighted to see this initiative, we tried the “make the Earth a cooler place” menu. Like all places veg, there is a vast variety of paneer dishes. And the speciality is Paneer Rara. The yummy curry is laden with paneer and tastes really good with naan or roti. Of course, there are many different kinds of vegetables and dals, but our eyes got stuck on the Filmy Naan section. This is Bollywood at its height. There is a Sholay naan, DDLJ naan, Gangs of Wasseypur naan and more. What gives them this name? The stuffing! Sholay is spicy, Wasseypur is a mix of aloo, gobhi and paneer etc. We opted for the Singham naan which was stuffed with mushroomd and came with choley, chutney, raita and salad. And at a pocket-friendly price of INR 100! If you are really hungry, this might be the ideal plate, but if you are a slow and leisurely dinner, then you could easily share this with your companion. Simply because these naans are king-sized just like the larger than life Bollywood masala movies. There are many soft beverages, but we tried the delicious Jamun and Anar Sikanjis and Aam Panna. The helpings are perfectly suited for two and the food is fresh and the ambience cool. The menu leaves you spoiled for choice. The starter section is really drool-worthy. We did have a plate of Peshori tikkas before indulging in the naan. With lots of time on our hands, we also tasted the 'made in India' ice cream flavours by Cool Cut. Apparently, these ice creams are made in Bawana and quite popular in West Delhi. And we were not disappointed for their Punjabi Tadka is laden with nuts and the brownie chocolate is absolutely mouthwatering. You could have these in a cup or a cone. Most importantly, if you are around in the area during lunch hours, there is a special discount. And if you are living in the neighbourhood, then you are lucky enough to avail the option of home delivery. You can order your food online. The outlet is walking distance from the Nirman Vihar metro station and the restaurant has a seating capacity of 48 people. It’s open from noon to midnight. And it's really family-friendly. If informed in advance, for larger groups, the restaurant can make special preparations, even food without garlic and onions for the Jains.
What Could Be Better?
What I have to say is that don't confuse this with the other Chawla's which is known for butter chicken.
