The dingy lane, originally known as the Dareeba Khurd was almost barren, spotted with a few sari owners and silver shops when a Brahmin family from Gwalior gave it a new meaning. They started a legacy that has continued for generations. Back in the day, there were about 10 to 12 Paratha shops – all owned by the same family. You could see and smell them at every corner. The Paranthe Wali Gali became the word around the neighborhood.
“In MP, it’s traditional to serve aloo-puri and kaddu Ki sabzi at most functions and weddings. As per the shop owners when they moved to Delhi in search of work, this seemed to be a viable business. Borrowing from the concept of puris, They created stuffed Parathas which were deep fried in desi ghee and served them with the same sabzis like aloo-methi, Kele-sonth ki chutney, and kaddu ki sabzi.They started out with four varieties – Aloo, Dal,besan-methi Parathas With locally sourced ingredients and spices, these parathas are made with whole wheat flour, stuffed and then deep fried. Unlike pan-frying, deep-frying is a process that renders surface treatment. The oil turns the outsides brown and the steam produced during this process cooks the insides.
How to reach: You can take the metro to Chandni Chowk Metro Station. Walk out of the station and head to the lane on the opposite side of the road. All shops remain open from 9 am to 11 pm. Sunday is closed for the shopping.
