We hogged our way across Mumbai’s streets and indulged in a variety of calorific treats (which, by the way, were totally worth the hype). But like every true foodie, we couldn’t stop at just one city.

The next must-visit haven for meat-lovers during the holy month of Ramzan is undoubtedly the country’s capital. And Delhi, as usual, did a swell job in this department!

Here’s a look at 8 places that made us thank God for making us humans. How else would we be able to devour such mind-boggling variety of food !?

The historic Jama Masjid is just one of the many places devotees & foodies visit during the holy month of Ramzan

Pit Stop #1: Haaji Noora

Famous For: India’s best Nihaari

Location: Bhaji Gali, Sardar Bazaar

We kid you not when we say this, Haaji Noora serves India’s best Nihaari! One look at the salivating Nihari fans that crowd this joint and all your doubts regarding this place will fade. The much-deserved fan following is the result of a tried, tested and perfected khandaani recipe that has been passed down through the generations. If delicious and succulent meat is what you want, Haaji Noora will not disappoint!

 

Khandaani recipes always work like a charm... just ask Haaji Noora Nihariwala!

Pit Stop #2: Aslam Chicken Corner

Famous For: A completely new Butter Chicken experience

Location: Near Churi Walan Gali, Chittli Qabar Road, New Delhi

If you think Butter Chicken cannot get any better, think again! Aslam’s version of this popular dish will pretty much make you forget about any other versions you’ve tasted earlier. It features juicy tandoori chicken tossed into a gravy of melted butter and tangy curd. Aslam’s Chicken Corner serves this lip-smacking ‘SPL: Butter Chicken’ with soft roomali rotis; the perfect accompaniment we say!

 

Look closely, this is where you need to halt for the yummiset version of butter chicken

Pit Stop #3: Al Jawahar

Famous For: All things Mughlai

Location: No.8, Jama Masjid Matia Mahal Road, Matia Mahal, Chandni Chowk, Opp Gate No.1, New Delhi

When hunger strikes and Mughlai is what you crave, Al Jawahar is the place to be. With a reputation for serving delicious Mughlai delicacies, this restaurant makes an appearance on every non-vegetarian’s must-visit list. Rumour has it, some of their specialties are cooked for over 8 hours to achieve the right consistency and tenderness.

Foodie Tip: Try their Chicken Jahangari; it is absolutely scrumptious.

Pit Stop #4: Karim’s

Famous For: EVERYTHING

Location: Kalan Mehal, Chandni Chowk, New Delhi

Everyone knows Karim’s, be it a Delhiwalla or a Mumbaiwalla. This iconic restaurant has found itself in food’s hall-of-fame thanks to its exquisite Mughlai creations that one cannot stop raving about! We asked locals their favourite dish and they couldn’t stop at one; Karim’s is that good!

Foodie Tip: Order Mutton Biryani, Seekh Kebabs and Tandoori Bakra

Pit Stop #5: Puraani Dilli

Famous For: Mutton Haleem

Location: 371, Main Road, Zakir Nagar, New Delhi

Puraani Dilli is where you’ll find the star attraction of Hyderabadi cuisine! Their finger-licking (nearly plate-licking) mutton haleem is something that should not be missed! What’s mutton haleem? It is a slow-cooked paste like dish created by combining spices, meat, barley and wheat, and it is absolutely sinful. Your Ramzan food crawl is definitely incomplete without the haleem.

Pit Stop #6: Changezi Chicken

Famous For: Their signature dish, Changezi Chicken

Location: 3614, N.S.Marg, Daryaganj, New Delhi

When hotel Maidah decided to change its name, it chose to christian itself after after its most special dish! Changezi Chicken is a delicious plate of roast chicken, served in a tangy gravy of yogurt, tomatoes and onion. Brainchild of the owner, this is where Chicken Changezi was invented. So, avoid having rip offs and have the real deal!

Pit Stop #7: Nawab Qureshi

Famous For: Summer time special Rooh Afza (with a twist)

Location: Nawab Qureshi’s stall in front of 1149, Matia Mahal, near Jama Masjid, Delhi

‘Pyaar Mohabbat Mazaa’, no it is not a Bollywood movie, but it is surely a massive hit! Served out of a food cart, this refreshing pink concoction is prepared with Amul Milk, Rooh Afza and freshly cut watermelon cubes. Different and nice, we like!

Pit Stop #8: Cool Point

Famous For: Mouth-watering Shahi Tukdas

Location: 973, Bazar Matia Mahal, Jama Masjid, Delhi

When it comes to desserts, no one minds gaining a bit or two. So why not gain a few at Cool Point? Their specialty Shahi Tukda might have just been the perfect dessert for the royals with its rich creamy taste and sugary goodness. Prepared by deep frying a piece of bread and dipping it in thick cream and sugar syrup, it is almost impossible to resist this creation. We dare you!

 

Shahi Tukda may look savory but it is a mouthful of creamy and sugary sweetness
