60 Great Dishes To Try In Delhi!!!!

Delhi is a foodie's paradise. With extreme weather conditions, you have everything from summer coolers to hot and spicy food to keep you warm during chilly winters. During my stay in Delhi for 2.5 years from 2002 - 2004, I found a huge population from North East, India. The North East influenced the Delhi cuisines and momo's were a huge vogue. There used to be a place in Chanakyapuri where the street used to be filled with momo stalls. I hear that the stalls are no longer there :-(

Delhi is also famous for chaats from various small timers who have become famous over the years. They have consistently maintained their quality to be still very popular amongst Delhites.

If you are a Delhite or new to Delhi, or visiting Delhi for the first time and would love to try out the local cuisine, then this is a great cheat sheet of where you must head to for your food cravings. This list has something for everyone and must say, its quite a comprehensive list.

This exhaustive list was shared with me by a friend and thought it would be of great help for everyone who is connected to this blog. It does include some of my hot favorites too!!!!
