The capital of India, Delhi, isn't just a political centre of the country, and it is much more than that. The colonial architecture, lush green gardens and wide roads surround a melting pot of art, culture and food that isn’t seen anywhere else. There’s a reason why it is known as the food capital of India, after all! So if you are a foodie, a trip to Delhi should be on your bucket list. And if you are wondering what all it has to offer that isn’t anywhere else, we’ve got you covered!

1. Kulle Ki Chaat

Think chaat, think Delhi! That’s how synonymous chaat is with Delhi. But while you can get gol gappe, Aloo Tikki and paapdi chaat anywhere today, there’s one thing that people outside of Delhi, and even many from the city, might not know of! Kulle Ki Chaat is a bite-sized snack from Old Delhi that is perfect for tantalising your taste buds. Loaded with fruits or vegetables along with heaps of spices, you have to try this the first thing.

2. Daulat Ki Chaat

If you are in Delhi during the winter season, you are in for a delight. Apart from the chilling Dilli ki Sardi, one thing that you have to experience is the frothy, creamy, cloudy dessert- Daulat ki chaat. No, it isn’t your chatpati chaat but a bubbly sweet treat made with churned out milk, frothed and skimmed with sugar, cardamom and sugar! It is an experience you don’t want to miss.

 

3. Havemore’s Butter Chicken

Delhi’s love for butter chicken isn’t a secret, but its love for the famous butter chicken place Havemore is a story you would only know post a visit! No wonder it has repeatedly been awarded the best butter chicken on countless occasions.

4. Dal Bukhara

Dal Bukhara at ITC Maurya’s Bukhara restaurant has won the hearts of not just us but even the who’s who of the world. From politicians to actors to world-renowned chefs, the Dal Makhani and family-size roti at Bukhara has won everyone over and is an experience of its own.

5. Parathe Wali Gali’s Parathe

Dilli aye aur Parathewali Gali na Gaye, toh kya khaakh Dilli aye? Loaded with oil and stuffed with just anything and everything you can ever imagine, parathewali gali’s parathe have been around since time immemorial and continue to treat us with the same zest.
