Ashok & Ashok Meat Dhaba, Sadar Market
Delve into the bustling streets of Sadar Bazar for Ashok & Ashok Meat Dhaba. As the name suggests, the place is famous for its meat preparations. The place has no seating arrangement but the food is so good that you won’t even care. With everything prepared in pure desi ghee, some of the heavenly things that you must try here are the mutton biryani, mutton curry and chicken curry.
Old Famous Jalebi Wala, Chandni Chowk
There is no complete celebration of a festival without sweets. The Old Famous Jalebi Wala in Chandni Chowk should be your last spot for a sweet taste. The jalebis here are iconic and hard to find anywhere else in the capital. So stuff yourself silly while you’re at it!
**Long post Alert*** This jalebi shop in Old Delhi deserved a post of it own. Aptly named, 'Old Famous Jalebi Wala', this place has been around since 1884; having been in operation for the past four generations of the family now. Based in Chandni Chowk, this shop is enormously famous for the piping hot, thick and juicy, freshly made jalebis that they offer. Their USP is that they use desi khandsari sugar for making the syrup instead of regular sugar, and the jalebis are prepared using desi ghee, cooked over coal-fire. The view of the jalebis being made is a visual delight as they make small batches all the time, depending on the crowd coming in. So , if you are not in a hurry...stay for an extra 10-15 mins and watch them beauties being created live. My video was too too long, hence this pic collage. The halwai takes the cloth bag filled with the batter and artistically squeezes it in circular loops into the boiling hot desi ghee for deep frying. Sooner you'll witness the mushy, white coloured swirls transmuting into crispy, golden-coloured jalebis, which are then immersed in rich sugary syrup for a few minutes. This syrup is what that makes the jalebis lusciously delectable. This syrup is a mix of khandasari shakkar, spices, a hint of saffron etc. Take a bite of that hot jalebi, imagine the crisp surface breaking open into your mouth to release that divine sweetness. That divine taste just lingers in your mouth....I am salivating writing this post, almost a week after eating those tantalizing JALEBIS. Ain't they drool worthy? These jalebis are thicker than the ones available at other mithai shops. So have 1 plain and the other with some rabri....best of all worlds... guaranteed!! and enough to keep you going for a couple of hours. Peeps, it's worth the journey to take to reach here... . #oldfamousjalebiwala #puranidilli #jalebis #chandnichowk #yummy #foodgasm #foodtalkindia #foodie #delhidiaries #streetfood #streetphotography #storiesofindia #thefeedfeed #trellfood #sweettooth #tastingtable #beautifulcuisines #dessert #incredibleindia #instayum #foodphotography #trellingdelhi #mithai #tasteofindia #whatsonmyplate #vegetarian #buzzfeastfood #food52 #
