If you love paranthas (Indian stuffed flatbread), you'll adore this little alleyway near Old Delhi's Chandni Chowk. They say the oil in which they cook--ok, deep fry--the paranthas at the main stall here has never been fully changed, so that there is always a mollecule of the original oil mixed in with the rest. This famous street has some of the richest, greasiest paranthas most people have ever tried, and it's a bit of a must-see for anybody who likes their food greasy. Everyone from Bollywood Stars to statesmen have stopped here for a bite, and the parantha wallas (essentially, parantha vendors) have the photos to prove it.

A very famous street, "Paranthe wali Gali" (‘gali' means street that sells ‘paranthas' - an Indian food delicacy, sort of chapatti) has seen almost three passed centuries.
Plain paranthas, salted or sweet paranthas, dal (pulses) ka parantha, gobhi ka parantha
(minced cauliflower), radish parantha, pudina parantha (mint), popadom parantha, cashew nut parantha - the variety is endless. You name it and they have it! All one is required to do is to knead some dough into small balls, roll it on a wooden base, add
fillings ranging from cottage cheese, potatoes sprinkled with chopped ginger, and exotic Indian spices, fry it in ghee or butter and viola, it's the perfect recipe for a lip-smacking
The Paranthe wali gali caters only for the pure vegetarian - even no onion and no garlic!Recommended for:Vegetarian
