Old Delhi Food

Old DelhiTaking a walk in Apni Purani Delhi, can certainly give you an idea of the food Dilliwallas love!

You have heard of North Indian Food, South Indian Food, Chinese Food, Italian Food, etc. Now it is time you get acquainted with the ‘OLD DELHI FOOD’. It is a mixture of all the cuisines that you can imagine, but still offers it in its unique, spicy and delicious style.

Just turn around and you will find a Tikkiwalla with mouthwatering Tikkis, then take another turn and you will find the Bedmi wala sitting with his fellow, Halwa Nangori Walla with an inviting presentation of fare.

The point is, that once you enter the Purani Dilli (Delhi 6), you will be surrounded by people and by the food vendors. You will get baffled by the number of food venders in this place. This is because the people of old Delhi are real foodies. No matter how many numbers of vendors start selling their food fare on the streets and shops, they can never suffice the food lovers!!

The delicacies I am now mentioning are worth trying because…. they are worth trying!!!!
