Check out some lip-smacking snacks to try in monsoon:
Finally, after the sunny and hot days, Monsoon has arrived in the city giving a relief from the scorching heat. All of us love monsoon, obviously because of the fresh air, cloudy skies, breezy days and muddy aroma. But above all this is the lip-smacking food that we get to eat in this season.As Delhi never leaves you disappointed in terms of food options so here is a list of foods that you must enjoy this season
For me, monsoons are incomplete without eating the roasted roadside corncob sprinkled with lots of spices and lemon. Corn is something that I feel like eating every day in monsoon, the warmth and tangy flavor of it makes it a perfect snack for rainy days.
Pakodas and chai
Nothing beats the combination of assorted pakodas and chai on a beautiful rainy monsoon day. When it is raining outside the hot plate of pakodas and tea is bliss. Delhi has many places offering yummy pakodas and tea, like:
- Khandani Pakoda vala, Sarojini Nagar
- Billu’s Pakode & Chaap Express, Keshav Puram,
- Kakkar’s pakoda stall, Karol Bagh
- Pakode Wali Gali, Lajpat Nagar
Though I can eat momos anytime, but a plate of hot steam momos with chili garlic sauce is a delicious option to satisfy hunger craving in monsoon.
Places to try: Dolma Aunty momos and Deepaul’s momos.
Eating fish pakoda on a monsoon evening is a good option. You will get the best fish pakoda at Parmjeet Machi wala, they serve the most delicious fish pakoda in the city. They offer catfish, kingfish and pomfret pakodas.
There can’t be any specific season to eat chaat, but in monsoon, it is even more amazing. The hot and crispy aloo tiki and spicy aloo chaat will surely make your taste buds want more. Windy weather and hot fried tikki’s are just perfect.
Places you should try: Bishan Swaroop, Shree Balaji chaat bhandar, Nataraj dahi bhalle and Bitto tikki wala.
This typical Mumbai street food is one of the best food items to have in monsoon. The hot vadas stuffed in soft bun along with spicy chutney and green chili will give you yummy spicy feeling. This is one item that you must prefer eating on the street side.
Samosa and Jalebi
This monsoon special combination can be enjoyed anytime of the year but enjoying it with your family or friends on a rainy day is must do thing in life.
