Don’t-Miss Dishes in New Delhi

Don’t-Miss Dishes in New Delhi

India’s capital is known for its delicious, rich food, much of which is heavily influenced by the city’s large Punjabi and Muslim populations. Street food (known as chaat ) is particularly popular, and it’s hard to walk more than a few feet in Delhi without coming across a hawker offering cheap and delicious treats. Here are a few dishes you won’t want to miss on your next trip to Delhi.

Paranthas: A classic North Indian breakfast dish, paranthas are layered, fried flatbread, often stuffed with potatoes, cauliflower, or other hearty veggies and served with yogurt. Try the deep-fried version at the Paranthe Wali Gali in Old Delhi.

Butter Chicken: Delhi’s beloved take on chicken curry, this dish consists of chicken cooked in a rich sauce made of cream, potatoes, and plenty of butter. The recipe was actually invented, accidentally, at Moti Mahal Restaurant in the Daryaganj neighborhood.

Pani Puri: Also known as gol gappe, this beloved street food consists of crisp, thin balls filled with mashed potatoes, spiced water, and a little tamarind chutney. A safe bet to try this unusual snack is Prince Chaat Corner in Greater Kailash.

Samosas: A popular item on Indian restaurant menus around the world, samosas are triangular puff pastries stuffed with savory fillings (potatoes and peas are the most common). Those served at Bangla Sweet House in Central Delhi’s Gole Market are famous around the city.

Aloo Tikki: Another classic North Indian street food, this dish consists of fried potato patties, often served with spicy chickpeas and a mix of mint and tamarind chutney. While you can get aloo tikki at roadside stalls all over the city, one of the most famous places to try them is BTW in Kamla Nagar.

Chole Bhature: Another popular breakfast item, this dish features spiced chickpeas served with huge, deep-fried puffy bread. One of the most famous places to sample them is Bhogal Chole Bhature Wala in the central Janpath area.
