"Purani Dilli"

For a long time, I have been discussing with my friends about the mouth watering

food at Zakhir Nagar. Today, I satisfied my hungry soul after visiting

Zakhir Nagar.

I visited “Purani Dilli restaurant” with one of my German friend who is a great

foodie. He is studying medicine in Munich but loves oily and spicy food without caring

about his arteries. The best way to be at Zakhir Nagar is by rickshaw from Jamia

University or Maharani Bagh. The lanes of Zakhir Nagar are engulfed with famous

Non- vegetarian eateries.

Purani Dilli has entered into its sixth glorious year in serving mughlai food. The menu starts with “cooking is an art”......and we possess the instinctive art of cooking. Our delicious andmouth watering recipes will bring back the memories of “shahjahanabad”to you. Carefully prepared using original recipes and authentic spices, food at “Purani Dilli” Restaurant is an exquisite treat for a person of refined taste like you.

It indeed was delightful to taste the food of “Purani Dilli”.It was also a pleasant surprise to see the son of the owner of this restaurant , who studies in a school,gracefully eating chicken fry with rumali roti.

We asked for half plates of nahari,haleem and chicken achari. Haleem and Nahari were of Rs 135 each..Haleem was topped with green coriander leaves, crisp onion strips and ginger pieces. They served a plate full of crisp onion strips,ginger pieces,green chillies,lemon and masala, which you can add to Haleem according to your taste. The nahari and Haleem is truly delectable. The spices were up to the mark and one can digest it comfortably without causing harm to the stomach and intestines. Moreover, the meat served over there is soft and it melts in the mouth like anything.

We rounded up our meal with one of my favourite dessert (Kheer),which was again great in taste.

Food walk @ Kamla Nagar

College is the best time of your life. Whosoever had studied in north campus,must had visited kamla nagar to hang out with friends.The second food walk organised by street food of delhi was in Kamla Nagar.During my undergrad years,i used to be a devout follower of food available in north campus and kamla nagar.

The walk started from Kashyap pakodas.There are two kashyap pakoda wala in kamla nagar, both being equally good.Bread Pakoda is fried in pure ghee on tawa and served with green and red chutney.The taste is different from pakodas which are fried in kadhai filled with oil.Kashyap pakodas are crispy from outside and soft from inside.Each bread pakoda costs Rs 30.

Next on our food walk was Brijwasi sweets.I have been here before to eat delicious kadi chawal during the day time.The food available at brijwasi do not include onions and garlic.As we reached in the evening time,we tasted gujia,ras malai,kular rabri and badam milk.Milk was exceptionally good.

After having sweets,it was time to taste some chatpata snacks.We reached at Bombay bhel house and had delicious bhelpuri.One of our foodie friend recommended Manawahar in shakti nagar for puchka and hing kachori.Hing kachori was not good but puchka was really mouth watering.The water filled inside the puchka or golgappe in delhi is of pudina but here it was imli ka paani.

Finally, we thought of having some drink It was disappointing to see that Chacha shake which was quite popular during our college days have now entered in to the real estate business.Keventers,now named as shake square was the only choice left for us.I never liked keventers shake because they mix flavours in the milk.Lastly, we had chiku shake at malka ganj chowk.

Famous eateries where one could enjoy good food are:-Mini shop,chaat street,nine75,QDs,Bon Zai,momos point,vaishnav chaat,and bille di haati.
