We reached Indore and checked in into a hotel we had booked through an online portal. After doing some research we zeroed in on the South Tukoganj locality for the stay.
For the rest of the day, and the next day we were mostly eating! There are basically 2 famous areas of Indore for food, 56 dukaan and Sarafa bazaar. 56 dukaan is open throughout the day. Sarafa bazaar is a jewellery market throughout the day, which transforms into a night street food market after 9pm. People come here and enjoy the food till late night. Here is a list of food items we tried:
At 56 dukaan,
Shikanji at Madhuram sweets, banjo (bun with egg) at Johny hot dog, kobra (coconut) pattice at Vijay Chat House.
At Sarafa bazaar,
Sabudana khichdi, aloo tikki, bhutte ka kees at Sawariya stall, kulfi falooda at Agarwal icecream, dahi wadas at Joshi Dahi Wada and coconut crush.
Apart from these we also tried Laal balti ki kachori in Rambaugh locality, Ghamandi lassi at Sawrwate bus stand and poha at Prashant pohe.
You get poha at every nook and corner of the city and people here have poha at any time of the day.
