We all love Biryani, right? Not a lot of Delhiites are familiar with one style of the delicacy though - the Kolkata Biryani. You may revolt against the thought of adding potatoes to the royal dish but believe us, it tastes really great! When the Nawab of Awadh was exiled in Kolkata by the British in 1856, potato still used to be an exotic vegetable; and the Dum Pukht style of cooking ensured that the potatoes had the perfect masala and the aroma. Head out to Kolkata Biryani House to savour one of the best Biryanis in the city!
2. Pork Momos @ Dilli Haat, INA
