Food is Life, But rajma chawal makes life beautiful ;D ;D
They say ”Food is Life”, well said. How often we have felt down in our life and food came out to be our savior. The link to sad mood and ice cream is eternal and so is the masala dosa to South India. The food is not only linked with the mood but even defines our very own existence.
They divide us and yet unite us in so many different ways. And with ever so trendy food walks taking place in almost every town in India, it’s great to have a place which can tell us all about the famous cuisines to try in an area.
The stereotypes linked with food are also hilarious and when you tell them that no I don’t eat it, the reaction, well better left unsaid. Something similar happened to me earlier this week when I was out with my gang on the streets of Delhi and one of my buddy had a craving for Rajma Chawal. The rest of them got excited and started searching for a place and I dropped a bombshell, “I have never tasted it”. The reactions, again, better leave it unsaid.
Anyway, we went to some famous food stalls in Delhi which serves and claims it to be “Delhi ka Famous”. Here is what to expect from them:
Parashar Food Stall
Shankar Market, Connaught Place
This is one of the most famous place for Rajma Chawal in Delhi. And I must say, I wasn’t disappointed. Though I must say waiting in the queue for so long took out a little fun out of it. Totally worth it. It was served with a boondi raita, papads and onions dipped in chutney. The only hitch is one have to stand on the pavement due to lack of seating arrangement.
Chache di Hatti
33-D, Kamla Nagar, Delhi
If you’re a Delhite, this place needs no introduction. It is a small roadside shop and is very popular among DU students being near North Campus. It is considered as one of the best in Delhi and if you want to have a bite then rush before 3-4 since they are selled out pretty quickly.
Jain Chawal Wale
P1/190, Connaught Place, New Delhi
This is my personal places and is actually the place which made me fall in love with the delicacy, that is, Rajma Chawal. Located at the ever so iconic Connaught Place, it is always filled with a huge crowd of foodies. The Kadhi Chawal is also one of the delights which will make you homesick. And all of this just under 60rs.
Baba Nagpal Corner
7/25, Gupta Market, Lajpat Nagar IV, Delhi
This place is though more famous for the Chole Bathure but their Rajma Chawal, Chole Bhature, Chole Chawal and Palak Paneer Chawal, are simply top notch and comparing one would be a crime. It’s a paradise for foodies who are just obsessed with Punjabi foods.
Sitaram Diwan Chand
Paharganj Market, Delhi
Though more famous for Chole Chawal, the Rajma Chawal served here with onion and pickles could give any famous food chain a run for their money. A little on the steeper side of cost but you get full value for money.
Meal for 2: Rs.100
Lajpat Nagar Market
I heard about this one a lot but sadly couldn’t find it at the first go as it’s located in between a sea of vendors and small shops near Khaatu Shyam Chowk. They also provide complimentary chick pea curry *read win win situation. If low on cash, this is the go to place since they serve it at a mere 50rs per plate.
New Punjabi Khana
35 & 36, G 7, Aggarwal Bhawan, Nehru Place, Delhi
A completely veg outlet for those in need which offers delicious North Indian cuisine at giveaway price. What makes it different from other joints in this list would be the papads they sell at an unbelievable price of Rs.5
Sona Sweets Sri Udipi Restaurant
G3, Saraswati House, Nehru Place, Delhi
Yes, you read that right. Though it being an orthodox sweet shop from outside yet it has made a name in serving out and out street foods over the years. And one should make a trip just to taste their yummy Rajma Chawal at least once (and you will be hooked).
Well, there you have it so go ahead foodies make some memories while enjoying the bliss of Heaven, that is, Rajma Chawal.
