Surinder Ji’s Chole-Bhature

Surinder Ji's Chole-Bhature By Anubhav Sapra Hudson lane, the most iconic lane for all college students, is the food hub for Delhi University attendees. During my time at Ramjas College, for all celebrations however big or small everyone would crowd at the renowned Zee Chicken (for those who lived in the north campus) or the famous Pehalwan Dhaba to remind oneself of home. When one closed the other opened, ACP dhaba and Friends Dhaba are the best examples. Here you were served a never ending tower of chapattis and the traditional Indian sabzi,…Read more

Koyla Kebab

When One Door Closes another Opens By Anubhav Sapra In the past couple of years I have taken refuge in Old Delhi. The waft of the meaty fragrant kebabs draws me in to the alleyways of Matia Mahal. But this time I decided to explore, skip the hustle and bustle of ‘purani dilli’ and traverse across the city. The rain gave me an excuse to flee from the old to the new. I landed at one of the upscale markets of South Delhi- Defence Colony, which for me has always been synonymous with…Read more

Daulat ki Chaat

THE INEXPENSIVE WEALTHY CHAAT By Prakriti Bhat As Delhi’s winters give way to the scorching summer heat, we are all left to reminisce about the chilly months that went by.

However, come winters and Delhites venture out of their homes to gorge on seasonal delicacies like Kadhai ka Doodh, piping hot Jalebis and Gajar Ka Halwa. But what I, as a foodie,…Read more

Baldev Dhaba

Keema Mutton at Baldev Dhaba By Anubhav Sapra Where – GTB Nagar Bus Depot Sweden se aaya mera dost! My foodie friend, who is also a neighbor, runs an Indian food truck in Sweden. Ever year, around Diwali, he visits his family in Delhi. However, more than this, I believe his visit is more about experimenting at newly opened eateries and catching up with the old ones. The other day, we met and discussed the food in Delhi at great length. After a brief question-answer session, he took me to ‘Baldev Dhaba’ at…Read more

Kashmiri Kebab Wala

Kashmiri Kebab Wala By Anubhav Sapra Where - T-point Phatak Teliya, Turkman Gate The raging debate on ‘intolerance’ in the country has taken the country by storm.

A family from East Pulwama, Kashmir has been selling buff kebabs for the past 74 years in Turkman Gate, at a temporary set up, near the scrap market. Every winter, towards…Read more

Ashwini ji ke Peepey wale Chole Kulche

Ashwini ji ke Peepey wale Chole Kulche By Anubhav Sapra I remember, once while reading the newspaper I came across this article which said that there are almost 250 cafes and restaurants in Connaught Place.

One of them is Ashwini’s chole kulche (Mob. 9953085746) at the corner of MCD’s Anti Malaria office. The location might not sound attractive but his chole indeed…Read more

Ghaseeta Pehalwan Pakodewala

Ghaseeta Pehalwan Pakodewala By Anubhav Sapra It has been my observation that Pehalwans are generally obsessed with food. And due to this inclination, they turn out to be real food entrepreneurs. Majority of them have opened restaurants and food joints across Delhi. I remember, Pehalwan Lassi Wala in Vijay Nagar, who offers their patrons a big glass of lassi with a thick layer of cream on the top, at just Rs 25.  I used to rush to him after examinations at Delhi University. The Lassi was the only respite from the hangover of reading political…Read more
