Delhi is the national capital of India. The city is known for its historical monuments, vibrant culture, political power, and the delightful food that savor all your taste buds with ultimate pleasure. Parathewali Gali is one such place, which is highly recommendable to the travelers coming to Delhi. Once the food lover in you reach this street and taste the stuffed fried paratha, you will never like other kinds of paratha in your entire life than this. Chandani chowk is the heart of Delhi. Situated at the old Delhi, it is one of the busiest and famous tourist destinations for various reasons. The place houses famous monuments and numerous narrow lanes. Pulsating ethnicity resides in its by lanes. Chandani chowk is a wholesale market; it is crowded with foodies as well as shop alcoholics. Parathewali Gali is the name dedicated to one of the narrow lanes because of the numerous specialized paratha shops in that lane. It is one of the famous gourmet destinations across the globe. The varieties offered at much lesser price suits every pocket even that of students! I remember my visit to the lane and the first time when I savored the unforgettable taste of Parathas there. Kind of Parathas: The people living in India or neighboring country know how to make paratha as this is one of the famous bread in the region. If you are a native, you must have tasted the various kinds of stuffed parathas. But, one cannot imagine even the exotic varieties of parathas fried in big wok that you can taste in the parathawali gali. From the familiar potatoes, peas, regular vegetable stuffing to the unusual almonds, cashew, Khoya, Rabri (Indian sweet delicacies) are some of the popular version of parathas available there. In the platter: The lane (gali) offers only vegetarian foods without onion and garlic. The rich Indian bread is served with tangy mint chutney (a kind of mint sauce), sweet tamarind chutney (tamarind sauce), a special mashed pumpkin sauce which has a sweet and salty blend of flavor, Paneer (Indian cottage cheese)curry with potatoes, dry potato and fenugreek curry and mouthwatering mix pickles. It is said that once you indulge yourself to the paratha platter, you cannot stop yourself to taste every flavor and will come repeatedly to the lane to satisfy your taste buds. The visit of parathawali gali is a journey of Indian history from Mughals to Indian independence and great leaders to the common people of India. The history of the place is attached with the mogul emperor Shah Jahan and the historic Red Fort. Pd. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, Indira Gandhi, and Jai Prakash Narayan etc. were the regular visitors of these shops. You can see the old memories of them at the Pandit Dayanand Shivcaharn Shop of paranthas. Notwithstanding, from the popular culinary destination to commercial hubs, the shops of parathas are now shrunken to only three or four, but the traditional taste is still preserved in the artisan hands of the exclusive chefs there from generations to generations.
