Also known as Gali Paranthewali, this is one of the most attractive by lanes of Old Delhi. Earlier kmown as the Gariba Dalan, this is where you will find old shops selling a variety of delicious paranthas. The specialty is that the stuffing put into these has unique flavors and combinations. This place was earlier a normal market place full of shops selling sarees and jewelry before the paratha sellers moved into this place. The lane is so famous that many celebrities visit this place regularly. It is said that the aroma of the yummy fried delicacies does not let you pass this lane without trying something from here. Jawaharlal Nehru and his family were regular customers here. the main flavors added to the paranthas here are of mint, different vegetables, cashew, khoya, mahwa and parat. The shops also sell yummy sweet dishes. Another remarkable development is that these shops have now partly switched on to the e-commerce world with online ordering services. Many other restaurants are trying to take inspiration from the environment of this place but the originality always serves the best.

Wondering around these lanes, I lost the sense of direction and after passing through Kinari Bazar, I reached Parathewali Gali. The last time I came here, it wasn't a very good experience as the shops were very crowded. But this time, they were inviting. I ordered Tomato Paratha for myself and it was amazing. However, the lassi wasn't that good.

It's a narrow street in Chandani Chowk, famous because of a shop selling paranthas ( a fried Indian bread) and the varieties include fillings like khoya, badaam, dal, matar.
From the entire day’s journey under Delhi’s dust and heat, we finally relieved our hunger in Purani Dilli’s famous Paranthe Wai Gali (literally ‘the bylane of fried bread’) which is a narrow food street in Chandini Chownk noted for small shops selling Delhi’s best paranthas (fried bread).
Amazing parathas at unbelievable prices!
