Parathe-wali Gali in Old Delhi – A Must Visit

If you’re visiting Delhi for work or travel or otherwise, one of the “must visits” is the Parathe-wali Gali in Old Delhi (aka ‘the Parathe Lane’). Absolutely mouth watering “parathas” to devour on.

See the clip below to have a complete virtual tour of the area.

Gali Parathe Wali or Parathe wali Gali, (literally “the bylane of fried bread”) is the name of a narrow street in the Chandni Chowk area of Delhi, noted for its series of shops selling paratha, a fried Indian bread, and now a popular culinary destination. The food is old fashioned, strictly vegetarian, and cooked dishes do not include onion or garlic, since the owners are Brahmins, and traditionally their clientale has included Jains in the neighborhood. Varieties include exotic fillings like Kaju, Badam, Matar, Mix Paranthas, rabri parantha etc. This small by-lane in the middle of Chandni Chowk has surprisingly a big VIP clientle too and the evidence of this can be found in the paratha shops with photos on the walls, waiters serving to the likes of Pandit Jawaher Lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi.

Did you find time to visit this place? Make sure you do; you’ll love it.
