Gol Gappe

Also known as puchka or Pani Puri, these are spherical crisp ball stuffed with chickpea, mashed potato, served in spicy water… Ummm… So mouth-watering… So, gol gappa is on the top of our list of famous must try street foods in Delhi everyone should try. Why, because of their popularity and because of their taste. You will find them almost everyone. The carts often remain crowded and people keep gluing to the cart holding the paper bowl in hand, waiting for their turn to come. Back in my childhood, I remember a plate of pani puri would cost Rs 1 and that would include 3 pani puris. These days, a plate costs Rs 30 on average which contains 5 to 6 pieces. Now, the water flavour has also been changed. We used to taste only two types of pani puri water but now we have 6+ flavours.

Anyone up for Pani Puri? Among the best street foods from childhood, pani puri or gol gappa still tastes so nostalgic even after so many years. Few years back, I used to eat to much, there was one guy who had his cart near to my flat and I would eat every day. I would pay him once a week and he would credit every time I used to eat. Well, most of the sellers knew me on the college road even few in my hometown. Now I cut down the consumption but still I can't avoid… #food #foodie #Foodlover #Foodlove #foodie #DelhiFoodie #instafoodie #foodporn #FoodRavel #foodgasm #panipuri #golgappa #puchka #letseat #streetfood #streetfoodlover #foodstory #foodtale #foodphoto #yumyum #delicious #gastronomia #nomad #foodblogger #foodgram #instafoodporn #ilovefood

Pav Bhaji

Originally from Maharashtra, this spicy street food has become everyone’s favourite in Delhi as well. Served with thick veg gravy along with pav buns, butter and salad, this is perfect evening snack. One of the famous must try street foods in Delhi, pav bhaji is often enjoyed along with cold drink. Avoiding this dish is seriously a gastronomic sin. I remember Bombay Best Pav Bhaji which was near to my hostel in Sector 4 Gurgaon. And so far I have not tasted anything better than that. Quality and quantity, but are totally unmatched.

If you are talking about must try street foods in Delhi but missed out chholye bhature, are you even talking about Delhi’s street food? Usually known as a Punjabi food, chholey bature has mushroomed almost everywhere. Deed fried bread made up of maida flour (purpose floor), served with chana masala or chickpea, chholey bhature is also combined with pickle and salad. During college days, there used to be bunch of guys who used to have their cart near by my college in Gurgaon and that used to be our lunch. The price back then was Rs 20 and then they increased Rs 5 more. Now the average price is around Rs 50, lucky if you get at Rs 20.

Chinese Food Nah, it's no chinese food we know. The name of this place is Chinese Food and you will get both Chinese and Indian street food dishes. So, I was craving for some real taste of chholey bhature and visited here this morning. So the place comes with two soft, little crispy bhature and hot spicy chholey, with pickle, pudina chutney and ring onions. Chholey bhature plate is incomplete without a cold drink. The taste was nostalgic, the one I tasted years back during hostel days. Yummmmmmm What I loved, less oily and the taste was perfectly balanced with every spice and ingredients they had used. The perfect way to start your morning… #food #foodiegram #foodie #foodlove #foodstory #foodphoto #instafoodie #FoodRavel #indiancuisine #chholebhature #streetfood #foodgasm #foodporn #foodporn #DelhiFoodie #morningmenu #breakfast #breakfastgoal #foodies #foorlove #foodstory #foodtime #foodblog

Soothing rain and some lip smacking chaat. Had a wonderful moment yesterday. Back when it used to rain, when I was a child, when I was at home, the weather used to get amazing and beautiful. And I remember every house would make pakoda post rain. The perfect combination of chai pakoda. Though I am no more child, I don't drink tea. I am not at my home, but the nostalgia is fresh. The memories smell and taste the same it used to be some two decades back. It's almost all the same and it brings the same feelings back from childhood. And I still cherish and relish. Every moment and every bite. #food #foodie #foodlove #FoodRavel #foodphoto #instafoodie #foodies #Delhifoodie #foodstory #foodlense #foodlife #letseat #eat #foodblog #gastronomia #nomnom #yummilicious #delicious #indiancuisine #chaat #streetfood #foodlover #foodfreak #foodclick #foodfun #yummy #foodporn #foodgasm #foodgram
