To begin my journey in to the tastes and aromas of Chandni Chowk's delicacies I started with Natraj's Dahi Bhalle. Dating back to 1940, the shop is patronized by powerful politicians and famous film stars. Here, one plate of Dahi Bhalla costs Rs.15. Dahi Bhalla is a concoction of yoghurt, masalas or spices and fried dumplings soaked in water (to soften them). The dish lived up to its reputation and was a real treat. Natraj's Aloo Tikki's are also famous in Chandni Chowk. Tikkis are like burger patties made of mashed and seasoned potatoes and stuffed with either dry fruits or ground seasoned dals. These tikkis were stuffed with moong dal and were spicy. Not only were they delicious they also made my eyes water with the strong spices!! A definite no-no for people with sensitive taste buds.
