Our food walk was completely a guided one as our close relative residing in Delhi had accompanied us,so the feeling of getting lost in the crowd was ruled out.Our first pitstop was the historic Paranthe wali gali renowned for the famous Indian fried bread(Paratha).I was completely taken away by the varieties of paratha they offer,comfort food and budget friendly.

Daulat Ki Chaat this sweet confectionery found in the dew months of winter is said to be prepared and consumed by the Mughul emperors in Delhi and hence the name Daulat.One can only find this only in parts of Chandni Chowk.
