Murthal is a village near the Delhi border, approximately 50 km from New Delhi. It's on NH1 and connects New Delhi to a lot of famous cities. Anyone who has travelled through that route knows the significance of Murthal and its parathas. A road trip without Murthal stoppage is incomplete. Initially, there were only a few dhabas on that route but due to the increasing popularity among tourists, there are now a myriad of dhaba options for visitors. 

Most of these dhabas serve tempting parathas throughout the day. Other than parathas, you can also try authentic north Indian cuisine, including naan, roti, sabzi, chawal, kulcha, and many other things. To spice up your next road trip through NH1,  here are the top five places in Murthal to eat parathas.

1. Amrik Sukdhev

This is undoubtedly, one of the most famous dhabas in all of the Delhi NCR. People from all parts of the country come to this Dhaba to eat the tandoori parathas. It was established in 1965 and since then has been relentlessly serving people. You can enjoy all sorts of vegetarian meals here and it serves food 24/7. Other than North Indian, you can also try South Indian, street food and Chinese food. The paneer misiya paratha is worth trying at Sukhdev.

There are a lot of small eating stalls that you can try from the outside. There's also a Mercedes Benz kept in the middle of Haveli to give it that extra look. The food here, like its theme, is authentic and flavourful. You can enjoy it with the perpetual Rajasthani folk dance, puppet, show, and other entertainment activities going on outside.
