Paranthe Wali Gali, Chandni Chowk
Paranthe wali gali’s history goes back to the 1650 when it was the Mughal era. But only the silverware shops were operating. From the 1870s, the Paratha shops started to flourish here. You can still see some jewellery shops operating in this narrow lane.
The Paranthe wali gali is famous for its authentic and mouth watering paranthas served with chutney. Notably, most of the store owners are Brahmin so they don’t cook parathas with garlic & onions. But you will see dry fruits like cashews & nuts mixed in paranthas.
Moreover, you can also have some tasty drinks like Kulhad lassi as well.
Kuremal Mohan Lal Kulfi Wale, Chandni Chowk
Kuremal Mohan Lal Kulfi Wale- the name who has given Delhi the taste of real healthy ice-cream. Unlike the commercialised brands, the Kuremal is still authentic to their values and offers organic fruit Kulfis to people.
Kuremal started his small business on a small stall in 1906. He used clay pots filled with ice to keep kulfis cool. Later Mohan Lal, his sons introduced a whole line of diverse kulfi flavours to their business and moved to the big lane.
Today they sell a variety of fruit kulfis like apple, pomegranate, orange, jamun, aam panna, and mango, and don’t forget about the traditional puffed milky kulfi.

Karim’s Jama Masjid is run by the great grandchildren of royal chef of Mughal Era. The chef Karim used to cook for the royal Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Jafar. Later he started his food place and became Delhi’s food king. We must say that ‘Karim’s’ has quite a history as well.

The unique taste of chhole is a secret recipe that only the family has access to. Their secret recipe has some unique flavours or maybe it’s a secret ratio of spices they use. The only extra we noticed is the Amchur chutney that they serve on the chhole that makes it extremely delicious and adds a layer of uniqueness.
