Delhi runs on all kinds of street food like tikkis, kachoris, samosas or better still the king of fried street food - Bread Pakoras that will NEVER go out of trend *phew*! So for those of you who still haven't visited these places (our deepest sympathies go out to you!), take a mental note of this list and make your way to the following places RN!
Having been around for almost 55 years now, Khandani Pakodewala is super popular to say the least! From a basic aloo bread pakora to varieties like paneer, palak, gobhi - they've got almost 15 variants and so are one of the best vendors to go to for your BP fix! Also, an added bonus is the chutney they serve which is out of this world so go and get drowned in some fried awesomeness y’all!
Location | Khandani Pakodewala - Ring Road Market, Nauroji Nagar, Near Sarojini Nagar
Price | Rs 12 Onwards

Another legendary establishment in Kamla Nagar, the crowd at Gopal swears by this age old shop, a childhood haunt for many. Although, this place is famous for its Bedmi Poori, Gopal’s bread pakora is nothing less than spectacular! A huge chunk of paneer is sandwiched between a flavoursome bread with a besan batter lathered all over it. They provide a plate of chola along with the pakora which takes it to the next level - go try!
Location | Gopal Foods - A-43, Kamla Nagar
Price | Rs 30

There is no name for this particular shop but it's one of the most sought after street side joints in the area surrounding Bangla Sahib in CP. This guy sets up his stall for the entire day and night so you can't miss it, serving his loyal customers till as late (or early) as 4 AM! Find fresh pakoras with fillings like onions, paneer & palak etc. paired with a spicy and sour chutney and juliennes of a daikon radish!
Location | Behind Bangla Sahib, Ashoka Road, Next to Grand Post Office
Price | Rs 20 Onwards
One would not find much of a mention when it comes to Saini Poori Wale in Old Delhi but his shop has been here for the past 60 odd years as claimed by the owner of this shop! Specialising in Bedmi Poori and Aloo Curry this guy also does some heavenly samosas and bread pakoras and the huge crowds outside is a testament to that fact! The best part about this place is the flavourful Aloo Curry he serves along with the bread pakora and a heavenly chutney too! SCRAM!!
Location | Saini Poori Wale - Kinari Bazaar, Chandni Chowk
Price | Rs 30
So head out and enjoy Delhi’s very own favourite street food!
