It is immediately obvious that this street food menu is in a different class from any Indian food we’ve tried before – we first share some vegetarian plates – including a Dhal puri pomegranate, sev – lentil, spice and flour bites served alongside a puree of beetroot and yoghurt and dotted with pomegranate and herbs. Almost too pretty to eat, but delicious!
The vegetable samosa Chaat is my favourite – a flavourful combination of crushed, crunchy potato topped with chickpeas, yoghurt and herbs with a surprising kick in the tangy chutney sauce.
The wild mushroom Khichdi bonda – little mushroom and potato balls served with a tomato sauce are also to die for.
The paneer bhurji toki – are divine little baskets of scrambled cottage cheese topped with quinoa, herbs and spices.
The non-vegetarian options are equally interesting and creative such as chili fish puffs served with a spicy mango chutney, crispy curried chicken served with a heavenly mayo and a Lamb keema mutter cone – tiny little cones – like ice-cream cones – filled with a delicious lamb mince!
The last option is Amritsari softshell crab – crab fried in spices – served with mustard raita – mustard-flavoured yoghurt dipping sauce. Soooo yummy.
Even if you only order the naan breads by themselves – plain or with delicious fillings, including cheese and coriander, you’ll not be disappointed.
