view of hustling Chandni Chowk

As I entered the busy chaotic narrow lanes of old Delhi,Chandni Chowk I could see numerous wires hanging across,cycle rickshaw wallah’s just rushing and making their way in the narrow lanes.Street food vendors serving you with some amazing food served and garnished with traditions,recipes which is passed from generations.It just inspires one to be a shutterbug capturing the various sights.

Our food walk was completely a guided one as our close relative residing in Delhi  had accompanied us,so the feeling of getting lost in the crowd was ruled out.Our first pitstop was the  historic Paranthe wali gali renowned for the famous Indian fried bread(Paratha).I was completely taken away by the varieties of paratha they offer,comfort food and budget friendly.
