Scrumptious Highway Dhabas You Must Stop By On Your Next Road Trip.

In my gastronomic memory, dhabas aren't just eateries by the highway; they are bookmarks of unforgettable experiences. There is nothing that can beat the satisfaction of spooning kaali dal into a crisp naan with blobs of white butter.

The never-ending menu and variety of curries to choose from along with a combination of earthy hospitality, distinctive ambiance and spiced up comfort food, are few things that makes dhabas a great success story. Here's a list of scrumptious dhabas, you must stop by if you are travelling on Indian highways:

1. Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba

Located on NH1, Sukhdev is not your usual dhaba where you sit under the sky on charpoy with prompt service by Raju. Instead, at Sukhdev Dhaba there are uniformed servers, tables and chairs, tissue at hand and AC. Some of the must-tries are Amritsari Kulcha, Aaloo Paratha, Mix Paratha, Lassi and sweet milky tea. 

Next time you're going to Punjab from New Delhi, make sure you stop at Sukhdev Ka Dhaba.
