You can have Makki-di-Roti and Sarson-da-Saag topped with dollop of butter and served with refreshingly chilled tall glass of buttermilk. Alternatively you can try lachchedar parantha (kind of bread), dal makhani, kadhi pakoda, any paneer (cottage cheese) delicacy. Gorge on exotic Amritsari fish and butter chicken for dinner.

We recommend you the chats – spicy snacks in Chandni Chowk area and sweets of ‘Ghantewala’ shop. Then there is one ‘paranthe wali gali’ (an entire lane chock-a-block with shops selling different types of paranthas – unleavened bread brushed with butter while on the griddle). The variety is surprising.
