Puri Bahji

Everywhere in Delhi there are little chai carts – I noticed them more in the morning and it’s an appropriate breakfast stop. A lot simply serve chai and hard-boiled eggs. You can get a little more extravagant if you like some spice and get some Puri Bahji. It’s a a hollow thin fried flour bread and served with curry. The gulab jamun is a soggy sweet bread made out of milk solids. Not too sweet and perhaps my favorite of the fried foods. Aloo tikki is perfect drinking food. That is of course if you could find a real bar here. You can find beer, but don’t get your hopes up for a local bar. There is a lot of good street food in Old Delhi. And by good I mean tasty. It is by no means hygenic or safe. If you’re willing to take the risk it could be worth it. Hopefully for your sake, that snack doesn’t try to fight it’s way out of you later on when you’re in the 4th class section of a 3 1/2 hour train ride to Agra.
