Mt. Bread Pakora

It is amazing how people are able to get away with building pandals on arterial lanes in Lajpat Nagar, blocking traffic for up to several hours. But since it was a festive occasion, I forgave easily and photographed this huge and growing pile of hot bread pakoras.

Parathas all sorts.

A staple of the North Indian breakfast (and more), the variously stuffed parathas can fill you up in less than twenty rupees. This mooli (radish?) paratha, I came across in Manali. Pickle of indeterminate origin.

INA Market has four or five specialty Malayali eating joints. I didn't eat this fried fish. I was on the way back from some satisfying appams, fish curry and beef fry that I saw this and wished I was not so stuffed.
INA: Ivide Nursummar Alayunnu. (Nurses roam here.)

Chilli Chicken

Apart from being a decent place to drink, 4S, in Defence Colony is also a good place for reasonably priced (think Delhi) Chinese and Thai food.

The Chilli chicken goes well with some Old Monk and coke.

The 4S style mixed fried rice is also quite good.

Kakori Kebab

App Ki Khathir is near Nizamuddin, and I have not seen it open before sunset. During the day, some kind of garage operates there. Forget the chicks, these kebabs are probably the best thing about South Delhi.
A touch expensive for street food, two of these come for sixty rupees. I was told that the lamb would be marinated for three days with curd and papaya - among other things, to get the meat this soft.


Nizamuddin. Near the Dargah. I wasn't really a great fan of the biriyanis in Delhi. Hyederabad, Bangalore and Kozhikode seemed to offer much better. This plate, costing a grand total of fifteen rupees, changed my mind. As you can see from the scales in the photo, it is sold by the kilo.

Those hands belong to the Media Baron. The meat was very tender.



Lajpat Nagar. Central Market Road.

Boiled eggs. Same guy who is usually near the Axis Bank ATM.

Melty halwa stuff.

Nizamuddin. These stalls come up at every Urs. Or so they told me.
