Are you tired of the usual bhalla papdi and chaat? Are you looking for the traditional taste with a twist? Then think no more and head to Bhalla King situated in Aggarwal sweets, Lajpat Nagar central market.
The owners Ankita and Kartik are very warm and cheerful hosts and are doing their bit to reduce non biodegradable waste. You’ll notice wooden and paper cutlery at their store and in their delivery orders.
Palak Patta Chaat: The spinach leaves are densely coated with besan/chickpea flour and fried to crispy perfection. The blend of sweet sonth or red sauce, fresh cold yogurt and green mint chutney tastes good although their quantity can be reduced so that the flavour of spinach leaves comes out better. The use of banana in their red sweet chutney adds more density to the chaat.
Chaat platter: That was a huge platter! The humongous and crispy rajkachori had soft & spongy Bhalla, boiled chickpea, sev-moth and the lovely blend of yogurt, red and green chutney. The sev puri was hassle free with crispy & fine sev sprinkled over boiled and finely chopped spicy potatoes. But the best of the lot was the masala golgappa. The golgappase were of good quality – thin, crispy and airy and the green mint infused water was spicy but not too overwhelming.
Paav Bhaajhi: The paavs are well buttered and soft and the bhaajhi has a very different flavour – slightly tangy at times.
