    What Makes It Awesome

    Popularly known as the High Court Jalebi, this stall — Jai Maajisa — is quietly tucked away on the High Court Road. If you are seeking hot samosas and jalebi when you are in Old City, High Court Ki Jalebi is an answer to all your gastronomical prayers. Originally a tiny kiosk in front of the High Court, it grew to a significant size over 50 years but is still known as High Court Ki Jalebi (a name it gained because of its location. Its actual name is Jai Maajisa!). But what’s in a name! When Pradeep Nath’s (current owner) father was working with a caterer in Hubli, a Hyderabadi caterer loved his cooking so much he took him back with him. Then, Pradeep’s father opened a little kiosk which we now know as the High Court Ki Jalebi shop. 

     The samosa and kachori , served on a paper plate with two kinds of chutney —green chilli chutney and a red (sweet and tangy) one. Both the dishes aren't oily or greasy which is a total win if you ask us. The stuffing is filling, and the taste of the red chutney is good. But honestly, it was the green chutney that wins hearts. Spicy, slightly minty, and full of flavour — it gets an ecstatic nod from us. Moving to the jalebi next, it is love at first bite (cheesy but true). It's thin, crisp, and not too sugary. We bet you'll want to get some packed for home and enjoy it as an evening snack.

    What Could Be Better

    We wish there was a basic seating area.
