Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi is famous for these deep fried snacks. Sweet Thekua, namakparas, samosas, kachoris, besan kaju and what not, with at least 5 varieties of each.
They are equally rich in taste and oil. The containers have holes in bottom and are placed on top of canisters for draining off extra oil.
They always use paper bags to pack and within a minute those bags are fully drenched in oil !!
My visits to the place are not complete unless I buy kilos of them ! Yes, whenever I happen to go there, there is a huge demand to bring these fresh crispy yummy items and I have to buy them by kilos and not by grams !!
No wonder when I asked the shopkeeper about his daily sale, he said anything between 200-250 Kgs per day. And this was just one of the many such shops.
A trip to Chandni Chowk and coming back without these goodies ? No way !
