Pyaz ke pakode and its super, of course home cooked. What really makes the diffeence is topping/sides and that chutney is special, preparation is very simple…lahsoon, tamatar and haree mirch, all raw, need more flavour…add kacha aam!

Sunny Side Up with Garlic Toasties

 

Weekend Special Breakfast, ok not so special but i made a portion hence its special. Sunny Side Up (For Tushan)/ Half Fry (Desi) sprinkled with black pepper to make it little spicy along with usual suspects of Green Chill, Corriander Leaves and Onion (reduced quantity, keeping the cost in mind). Additional flavor by Garlic Toasties, this is awesome..it has oreganos as topping!!!

Paneer Kulche at Rajiv Chowk, Gurgaon

This was another accidental found, had gone for some work in District court, actually if you live in a rented accommodation and want to save some money, you need to visit this place every year. The alternative is; you can connect with property dealer, anyway, I was lucky to find this place in 2011 and since then I have been a regular visitor.

The stall is run by three generations, majority of the times you will a young man running it and at times, the grand old man with his grandson.  From the looks, it wont attract you so keep that in mind. They serve two three varieties of Chole Kulche; Paneer Kulche, Dhania Kulche and Plan Kulche and actually there is no difference between Dhania and Plain Kulcha and at times stall owner would hesitate to discuss about it.

There is no space to sit or they offer any shadow, its on the move. The strategy is to have customer move immediately after eating, customer is good, specially from dadajee, he is always smiling, the young boy is very aggressive 🙂

Preparation time is not more than 2-3 minutes, everything is ready, the Kulche just need a layer of butter on Hot Tawa and simultaneously the Chola is prepared.  I didn’t find the Chola to be exciting, but the Paneer Kulche takes all the attention.

The Chola, almost ready to be served!

Probably summers are not the best time to try, you will be sweating and fighting heat and no time to enjoy your Paneer Kulche but for a foodies, these are small issues.  The final product is below, Paneer Kulche will cost you Rs 40/- and Plain Kulche Rs 30/-, enough for your breakfast.

The Final Product, Paneer Kulche & Chole!

The Burger & Gol Gappa Point, Sec-15 (Gurgaon)

Probably majority of Gurgaonties know about it  but for me its a new discovery, actually the discovery happened during house hunting last year.  In search of house, it was quite obvious to get hungry and these two outlets turned out to be a perfect place. Although, I didn’t  get house in that locality but I have been frequent visitor to this place now, reason quite obvious, The Burger Point & Gol Gappa!

The Burger Point – Probably one of the best available in Gurgaon, I would exclude the international brands here although from quality perspective, its nothing less. They use have all those the ingredient and paste which is found in top quality burger and its always added with fresh vegetables as the layer.

I usually settle down with Chicken Maharajaha, its big…really big!

Special Chicken Maharaja!

The price is as decent, I would rather term it cheap, Chicken Maharaja is the costliest one here at Rs 75/-, they have the Maharaja option in Veg as well. I still haven’t tried everything, have huge collection in Burger and Sandwiches!..More to come..

Gol Gappa – Also known as Paani Puri, Puchkaa and by many other names, I just love to call it ‘Gol Gapp’a.

This Gol Gappa was found accidentally, I have this habit of trying it at every possible location and it lead to this found. I will be little biased when I speak about this, in NCR you would find Suzee Gol Gappa taking central stage and I cant simple understand this. Suzee Gol Gappa is completely NO for me, this may be because I was brought up in UP and their is nothing as Suzee Gol Gappa, its always Aatta (Wheat).

The Atta Gol Gappa!

The Aatta Gol Gappa!

The presentation is exactly what you see on the streets of Kolkatta, unique for Gurgaon & NCR.  The puchka isonly available in Aataa (wheat) flour and the water is completely made from Imlee (Tamarind), pure authentic touch. Priced at Rs 20/- for 5 pieces.

How To Reach: Direction from IFFCO Chowk to Sec.15 Market
