In the core of Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk is a bustling shopping territory with business sectors brimming with flavors, dried organic product, silver gems, and striking sarees, while the limited side roads are swarmed with modest shops moving fundamental oils, stationery, and customary Indian desserts. Close-by, the huge Mughal-period Red Fort currently houses an exhibition hall complex, and the seventeenth century Jama Masjid is a tremendous red-sandstone mosque with transcending minarets. The Chandni Chowk is one of the most established and busiest markets in Old Delhi, India and is found near Old Delhi Railway Station.
Strolling around the limited paths of Chandni Chowk, one runs over endless road sustenance joints that charm guests with their overpowering fragrance and brilliant appearance. Every restaurant speaks to a rich legacy of culinary ability and old conventions that have been idealized over hundreds of years. The zone’s relationship with sustenance that started amid the Mughal time still keeps running till this day and keeps on beguiling foodies with its delectable taste and brilliant vibe.
Some of the food that Chandni Chowk is renowned for, isn’t accessible at all over whatever is left of the nation and regardless of whether it is, there’s a remote possibility that anybody will get it as perfectly fine decades-old restaurants. One of a kind dishes, both sweet and exquisite, consummated over years, served hot off the support much of the time. On the few events that I have been to Chandni Chowk, I have lamented being constrained by the amounts I can eat. From smaller than normal kachoris called nagoris presented with a luscious aloo sabzi and sooji halwa to the very famous rabri falooda at Gianni di hatti, there is nothing that merits missing.
Whenever you visit Chandni Chowk, here’s a list of top 3 Places you can’t afford to miss if you are out on a food walk through the streets of old Delhi.
1) Natraj Dahi Bhalle Wala
Natraj Dahi Bhalla has always been one of the very prominent places of Chandni Chowk. It has been one of the very rarest cases that one must visit Chandni Chowk and had missed the opportunity to go to Natraj. Talking about the history of this place Natraj has been established since the year 1940 and from that time they have been selling only two of their best selling items that are “Dahi Bhalle” and “Aloo Tikki”. Basically, their Dahi Bhallas are so famous that people keep coming back, again and again, to have their tempting Dahi Bhalla.
2) Giani Di Hatti
Over 50 years back, Giani’s opened its first outlet in Fatehpur with just three ice-cream flavours (vanilla, butterscotch, and strawberry). Today, it has turned into a multi-store ice-cream chain, including new flavours occasionally, and still remain Delhi’s old most loved for desserts. They are famous for their velvety and exceedingly liberal Rabri Falooda. They also serve Gajar Ka Halwa and Moong Dal Halwa in winters which are almost loaded with Dry Fruits. In Summers they have their Special Banana Shake and Mango Shake as well. Also, Chole Bhature and lassi is what they have around the year and trust me, you would love their Chole Bhature.
3) Pandit Gaya Prasad Shiv Charan
Parathewali Gali is the most well known of old Delhi’s eminent places and people from all over the world come specially to old Delhi just to try their old age techniques of making a parantha and the variety fo Paranthas they have. At one time there were more than 25+ shops in that lane but now they are just limited to 4-5 shops. The catch they have is that they actually fry the parantha so for all those who are fitness freak must be aware of the number of calories they would intake by eating these paranthas. Their menu includes types of parantha ranging from mint, almond, rabri, carrot, sugar, ladyfinger and many more. They also serve lassi in a kullad which is available in sweet and salty flavours.
