Delhi, the capital of India, also reigns supreme as the culinary capital. Let's find out what's in store for food lovers by exploring the street food in Delhi.  

Delhi served as the political capital for several empires and dynasties throughout its rich history. In addition to maintaining its position as the political hub, the City of Rallies has also emerged as the epicentre for street food. 

From Parathas to Chhole Bhature and Kebabs, Delhi is a paradise for street food lovers. If you’re planning to visit Delhi, here are some of the best Delhi street foods you must try-

1. Paranthas- The Stuffed Delight

A favourite among locals and visitors, Delhi Paranthas is a culinary masterpiece encapsulating the city’s rich culinary heritage. Available in a wide range of fillings, like the classic Aloo (Potato), Paneer (Cottage Cheese), and Keema (Minced Meat), there is a Parantha to suit every palate. 

If you’d like to enjoy the scrumptious Paranthas, the Paranthe Wali Gali, Moolchand Parantha, and Not Just Paranthas are some of the best places for street food in Delhi. Murthal, around 60 km from New Delhi, is also popular for its Dhabas, which serve a wide range of Paranthas

2. Kebabs- The Grilled Goodness

Kebabs, too, have become integral to Delhi's rich gastronomic legacy. Renowned for their aromatic spices and succulence, these flavourful delights will transport your taste buds to culinary bliss. 

Seekh Kebab, Galouti Kebab, and Shami Kebab are some of the must-try street food in Delhi. You can enjoy these at joints like Qureshi Kebab Center, Karim's, and Ustad Moinuddin Kebab. 

3. Momos- A Tibetan Delight

Momos, a mainstay of Tibetan cuisine, has become a street food phenomenon in Delhi. Entrenched in the city's love for experiments and innovations, Momos have evolved into various unique varieties, ranging from Tandoori Momos to Paneer Tikka Momos and Kurkure Momos.  

Hunger Strike, Yeti- The Himalayan Kitchen, and Dolma Aunty Momos are popular spots in Delhi where you can relish Momos to your heart’s content. 

4. Chole Bhature- The Punjabi Feast

A staple in local eateries, Chole Bhature beckons food lovers with its enticing aroma and bold flavours. The soft and fluffy Bhature paired with spiced Chole and served with pickles and freshly cut onions are the perfect way to kickstart your day of exploration throughout the city. 

 Chandni Chowk, Chawri Bazaar, Connaught Place, and Sarojini Market are some of the best food streets in Delhi, where you can find several food joints serving piping hot Chole Bhature.  

5. Soya Chaap- The Protein Goodness for Vegetarians

The smoky and aromatic Soya Chaap is a vegetarian alternative to meat-based Kebabs. Derived from soybeans, it is prepared by marinating and grilling the vegetable protein, resulting in delicious, protein-rich street food. 

Food hubs like Karim’s and Chandni Chowk serve some of the best local food in Delhi, including a plethora of Soya Chaap varieties, including Tandoori Soya Chaap, Malai Soya Chaap, Pahadi Soya Chaap, and more.
