Food Lover's Guide to New Delhi

Food Lover's Guide to New Delhi

The Indian capital of New Delhi is as rich in its cuisine as it is in its culture, and the city's cosmopolitan nature means there's a melting pot of culinary influences and flavors to draw from. Whether dining at a high end restaurant or hitting the streets, New Delhi is a city made for eating. Here are a few foods and activities you won't want to miss.

Must-Try Dishes

Eaten for breakfast or as an afternoon snack, paranthas are among Delhi's most beloved foods. This pan-fried unleavened flatbread can be eaten plain or stuffed with potato, cauliflower, paneer, or a host of other vegetables, and they're often served with chutney or pickle for dipping. The word chaat refers to several potato-based savory snacks, most famously found in Chandni Chowk, Delhi's main street food destination.

Got a sweet tooth? Try some kulfi —Delhi's version of ice cream—or jalebi, a bright orange coil of fermented and fried batter soaked in warm, spiced syrup.
