Maggi Tarian : Much more than just maggi

Kamla Nagar can be referred as a big treasure box with lots of treasures and gems, I can assure that no hungry person can walk out empty stomached from this place which is full of food . If you take walk down the main market in kamla nagar you’re bound to quickly come across a small pop shop which goes by the name ‘Maggi Tarian’. It is located in front of Spark Mall or else the bada gol chakkar as the local people address it.  This tiny shop almost resembles a food truck where  you place your order and can also see the food being prepared, having the food on high tables or you can also have your seat on the stairs of the mall as people usually do here.

The menu at this place is much more than what its name suggests. It serves pasta, shakes, wraps, fries, sandwiches and of course maggi. It has a versatile variety when it comes to pasta and maggi  and also various types of shakes. According to me the most recommended dish here is the all time classic white sauce pasta and tandoori cheese pasta. I would also suggest the fries which are the classic salted ones , but the good thing is that you can choose your own dip out of a huge variety of the tangiest and mouth watering dips.

Although this place does not provide any seating but I strongly feel that everyone should try having their delicious gulps of the snacks while sitting on the low boundary of the mall and observing one of the busiest market of Delhi.  This place opens at One O’clock in the afternoon and serves their delightful snacks till 10 o’clock in the night. The most busiest hour is notably the evening hours and between 2 to 3 in the afternoon when the north campus colleges have their lunch timings.

Maggi Tarian is the best option one can go for if he or she is in a mood of having good food in a reasonable price.

Aslam Chicken: Age old romance of the Butter and Chicken.

What comes to your mind when you think about ‘Butter Chicken’?  A dish from the Indian subcontinent, of chicken in mildly spicy curry sauce? But, have you ever imagined the same dish in a 500 gm slab of melted butter along with some lip smacking marinate of the secret spices? Well, if this sounds tempting enough to you. You should surely try dining at a hidden gem in the chaotic streets of Old Delhi that is the ‘Aslam Chicken’ , a book whose first page was written in the late 90’s  is an age old legacy that has winged up ‘Butter Chicken’ as its specialization, which still amuses the hearts of gourmands from across the country.

Finding this wonder in the busiest streets of Old Delhi won’t be a big trouble for you because of the fame which this place holds proudly due to its year old serving of happiness in the form of most appetizing comfort food. At it’s earliest it was a double storeyed shop which later developed as a 4-storeyed restaurant, even which is not enough to fetch seats for all the customers sometimes. You can see the mouth watering sight of the ‘Butter Chicken ‘being prepared at the entrance of the restaurant. It is a unique combination of chicken cooked over coal pierced through the barbeque rods which are then dipped in a curd like mixture and a massive amount of butter along with a touch of secret spices  which indeed is chose to be kept a secret by the owner and the Aslam’s chefs.

Although, this place offers a limited number of dishes including the famous butter chicken and butter fish tikka which is prepared in a merely same way. It has various branches which are spread all over the city so that they can deliver the happiness at every corner of the capital. This joint works some kind of magic which even melts the hearts of the most health conscious and calorie restricting people to gulp up the fine pieces of chicken dipped in rivers of melted butter along with a whole basket of roomali rotis (thin flat breads made up of atta and maida flour).

The journey that started years ago has come through a great adventure and competition but it still stands tall and proud to quench the thirst of foodies with love hospitality and every ounce of dedication to make their butterly experience as creamy and smooth as their chicken.

AJMER FOOD TOUR

Ajmer food tour

By Anubhav Sapra

 It is always fun to interact and explore the city with a local food enthusiast. In Ajmer I met Shikha, a dentist by profession and food instagrammer by passion. She runs an instagram account Ajmerfoodie. Together we explored the lanes of the city, with her being an excellent guide.

We started with Dhanna ki Kachori in Vaishali Nagar– a super spicy dal kachori with kadi. She remarks that this unique combination of Kadi and Kachori was invented in Ajmer and spread to other towns slowly. But the kadi is made in a different style without buttermilk or curd. Having been in existence for 20 years, the shop is run by two brothers Durgesh and Kanahiya. The kachoris are topped with mashed potatoes and coriander. To add a tangy flavour to the kachori, lemon wedges are served along with it.

From here we reached Akbari Museum. Next to the Akbari museum in Ajmer are two shops facing each other – Shankar chaat and Anant Jain lassi shop. Shankar shop is famous for kachori and saakhe. As we already had the kachori at Dhanna, we ordered saakhe with kadi. Saakhe is just fried maida dough with ajwain. Curly in shape, saakhe is also known as namkeen or matar in different cities of India. I had always enjoyed it with a cup of sweet tea. This was the first time I tried it with kadi and chutney. A great combination indeed- the crispy saakhe went well with the smooth and spicy kadi. Next, we tried lassi at Anant jain lassi shop. The thick and creamy lassi is served in a clay glass topped with malai, rabri and saffron water. In the heat of Ajmer, it was a perfect refreshing drink.

Ajmer is known for Sohan Halwa and karanchi halwa. I am sure there would be some historical relevance to the sweets in Delhi and Ajmer. In Old Delhi, sohan halwa is available in selected sweet shops like Chainaram and kanwarji. I simply love this caramalised crunchy chewy sweet biscuit. It is made up of wheat, ghee, sugar and nuts. One small bite of halwa and the mouth is literally filled with ghee. Slowly you get the flavours of nuts. Moolchand Buddhamal in Purani Mandi is the oldest sweet maker of ajmer. Established in 1870, the shop has the best sohan halwa in the old city of ajmer. The sweet is also available in dargah market at all the sweet shops.

The story of bhutia halwayi (ghost sweet maker) is interesting. One story is that the ghosts used to make sweets whole night and when the owner used to open up the shop next day in the morning, all the sweets were made. Second story is that the sweet shop was in an isolated lane on Alwar gate road. No one used to visit that lane at night because of the rumour of ghosts living in Alwar gate road. But lala ji used to open the shop inspite of rumours of ghosts in that area. That’s why the locals started calling it Bhutiya halwai shop. Whatever the real story, the sweets are really good specially doodh jalebi and gond ke laddu. We tried doodh jalebi. The sweet and sugary jalebi is crushed in a steel jug and then half a glass of thick milk is added. Both of them are mixed properly and served in a clay glass with cream on the top. The mix of soft and crunchy jalebis makes it special.

It is not easy to find authentic homestyle Rajasthani delicacies in restaurants. Mahadev dhaba is one of the local eateries in Ajmer where some of the Rajasthani dishes like gatte ki sabzi, ker sangri, sew tamatar, papad sabzi are on the menu. The dhaba is at Nasirabad road in Ajmer.The owner specially cooked sew tamatar and papad ki sabzi for us and allowed us to oversee the preparations in the kitchen. The recipe of both of the dishes was similar- first, in hot oil, onion is sautéed and garlic water is added to it, then curry gravy, some garam masala and finally sew or roasted papad are added. In my opinion, what makes it special are the two ingredients – garlic water and the curry gravy made up of malai. The malai in the gravy leaves a smooth creamy texture to the sabzi. A bit spicy for me, but It went well with the fresh tandoori roti.

On the way to our last stop for faluda, near madar gate, we spotted probably India’s biggest kachori weighing 650 gms.

In the end we decided to stop for some dessert.  Kesar pista kulfi with kesar pista ice cream, rabri, dry fruits and rose syrup were layered and served in a glass bowl. It was the perfect sweet way to end the Ajmer street food journey.

The evening was spent in the Dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisthi. Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, popularly known as Garib Nawaz (helper of the poor), is a giant figure on the Sufi map of the sub-continent. Situated in the city of Ajmer in Rajasthan, the shrine is open to all faiths. It is an old saying that people who visit Ajmer Sharif and pray with pure faith and loyalty at this Dargah, are granted their heart’s wishes.

In the Dargah there are two huge degs i.e., cauldrons – for cooking Niaz (purely vegetarian food); cooked with rice, ghee, nuts, saffron & sugar. The system of cooking food in cauldron was first introduced by Emperor Akbar. And Ajmer sharif has the world’s largest cauldron with the capacity to cook 4800 kgs of food in it.

I participated in the langar with the locals and the devotees. In a big plate, fresh and delicious biryani and sweet rice were served. People kept sharing the food from the same plate. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!

MILKSHAKE AND CO: Where the creamiest shakes meet the cutest glasses

On my recent trip to Chandigarh, I found myself bored and craving for some sugar rush on a hot lazy afternoon. Since I was back in Chandigarh after a long time, I was in an exploratory mood and wanted to try something new instead of my usual haunts. However, I also was looking for something budget friendly. I had heard a lot about the inner market of Sector 8, which has in the last few years evolved from a quiet part of the town into a fun and bustling market. The USP of this market area is its concept of takeaway food, that is co-related to the fact that it lies on the famed ‘gedi route’ of Chandigarh. While the market is relatively serene during the day, it buzzes with activity in the evening with a lot of youngsters coming in their cars to enjoy the variety of food options this market offers.
So when I finally reached this market, I was overwhelmed and confused with the presence of so many good cafes and restaurants here, and was having a hard time picking one. Finally, I went for Milkshake and Co. because I had heard some rave reviews about this one. Like most of the other eateries in this place, this one also has no seating as such and there’s a small space inside for you to stand and place your orders. And while the space is a bit cramped, it certainly is very pretty with the menu painted quite aesthetically on the left side wall, and the right side wall filled with quirky and cute emojis. The theme of this adorable quirkiness also continues into the jars and glasses in which they serve their fries and shakes . The glasses especially are super cool with animated faces drawn on them that vary depending on the flavour of the shakes you choose, with each flavour having a specific design on the glass.
Now coming to the main part, ie. the food and the beverages served here. The menu is very intriguing with the milkshakes occupying the centre stage (not surprising at all considering the name of the shop) with their interesting flavours and the even more interesting names given to those flavours. Names like Ghostly Ghost, English Summer, Deadly Red, Voodoo, Green Devil , Dark Lord, Nutty professor, just to name a few, are bound to catch your attention and set your imaginations running. Also, the flavours on offer are very diverse and cater to everyone’s tastes whether one prefers the classics, the rich chocolate shakes, the fruity flavours or even confectionery flavours like M&M, Skittles and Bubble-gum. This theme also continues with their Cream Sodas that have flavours like Orangutang, Shockwave and Blue Whale. There are also a few cold coffee options and if you’re just not in the mood for the heavy creamy options and simply want something refreshing to quench your thirst, you can choose from the many flavours of lemonade here. The food menu is a bit underwhelming though with only burgers and fries to choose from, but once again the flavours on offer are very tempting and interesting. The ‘Paneer Mango Sriracha’ and the ‘Chicken Cajun Pineapple’ in the burger bombs section definitely sound very appealing for someone with experimental tastes like me.

Just looking at this mouth-watering menu had intensified my cravings tenfold and so after some difficult contemplation I went ahead and ordered ‘The Legend’ milkshake and ‘Honey Mustard Mayo fries’. I was told by the guy on the counter that The Legend, Ghostly Ghost, Black Eye and Dark Lord were some of their bestseller shakes; and while I was definitely intrigued by experimental flavours like ‘Cheesy’ and ‘Deadly Red’, I decided to stick with the classic option for my first time. And boy, I wasn’t disappointed one bit! The shake tasted what can only be best described as heavenly. First of all, the shake really did justice to the term “thick shakes” as it was very creamy and rich in flavour. The salted caramel flavour tasted very authentic with a fine balance between the sweet flavours of Caramel and the zesty flavour of Rock Salt. And the dollops of whipped cream served on top were just ‘the icing on the very delicious cake’. While I did really like taste of the pink coloured cream when mixed with the shake, the creaminess only serving to make the yumminess of the salty caramel flavour taste even better. However, I did find the quantity of the cream to be a bit in excess, and it did not taste as good by itself once the shake got over. But all in all, the shake was quite refreshing an absolute delight to have!

The honey mustard mayo fries I ordered to have along with the shake, were good but not the best. Not sure what, but something was missing. The fries weren’t very crispy nor were they very succulent. The honey mustard mayo tasted alright but seemed to be somewhat lacking in the mustard flavour. While many people might like only a very subtle mustard flavour , I was a bit disappointed since I am someone who really likes the strong essence of mustard. But what the fries lacked in taste, they quite made up for in quantity. The serving size was really generous and while the shake itself was quite fulfilling, the fries had me full to the brim. And I had barely even eaten half of the fries. So eventually I had to get the remaining fries packed, which was simple actually considering the beautiful tin jars they serve the fries in. All that I had to do was put the lid on the jar, and my fried were good to go. Quite convenient really!
And thus, a short trip to this up-and-coming inner market of Sector 8 and my hunger was satiated, my thirst quenched, my cravings fulfilled and my tummy full. All thanks to the Milkshake and Co. The shake was thick, creamy and delightful. Another great thing about this café is their reasonable pricing. The quantity of fries is very generous for a modest price ranging from 130 to 150 rupees. The shakes might seem a bit pricey at 190 rupees, but considering the quality and the incredible taste, I found it to be totally value-for-money. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone whether you are a resident of Chandigarh or just visiting the city, and especially if you are looking to have some great milkshakes available in a variety of flavours that will boggle your mind and mesmerize your taste buds.

Stressed and in Doubt- Just Cake it Out

Theobroma isn’t exactly a street food joint but they serve some amazing quality pastries and savory items at very reasonable prices. Life is all about good food and sometimes paying just a little more than usual can be totally worth it.

Theobroma is one such place where you get amazingly delicious food at quite respectable prices. They have 10 outlets in Delhi, NCR and very recently they opened a new outlet in Select City Mall, Saket. I have also been to their café in SDA market. The café there is a beautiful little café with sea green walls and adorable furnishings and when I say little, I mean TINY. It’s a very small café where you have to squeeze in to walk back and forth. I have eaten quite a few of the items from their menu, over the years. The brownies and various tarts and pastries are to die for and I am not exaggerating one bit. On a very recent trip to the express outlet in Saket, I ordered quite a few items from the menu. I ordered the overload brownie, the zingy lemon tart, veg quiche and crème caramel custard. And I recall eating their chicken sandwiches and after nine pastry among many that I can’t even remember now. And I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that each and every item on the menu is delectable and just so tasty. They also serve hot beverages like coffee, tea, flavoured coffee etc and cold beverages like milkshakes, flavoured ice teas, cold coffee etc to accompany their appetizing dishes. They also have a breakfast menu which unfortunately is not available at express outlets and kiosks. They also serve various flavours in cheesecakes for cheesecake loves like me. Not only do they serve pastries, but they also serve cakes on order for half kg and beyond. They also serve mouse cakes and hand crafted chocolates.

Now coming to the prices, the overload brownie was for 95 rupees and it was one of the softest, incredibly gooey in the middle, melt in your mouth kinda brownie. The crème caramel brownie was also an amazingly smooth pudding, just the caramel poured on top trickled down the plate and the cheapskate in me wanted every drop of the caramel syrup which was unfortunately hard to pick up because of the flat place, so yeah that left me a bit sad. It was for around 100 rupees. The veg quiche was for 75 rupees, and OH MY GOD, the quiche was so good, it’ll probably be one of the best things you’ll eat, it was cheesy, the base was nice and crumbly, the mushroom tasted just perfect and I don’t even like mushrooms. Then the zingy lemon tart was for 100 rupees, it was just the right thing needed to cut through the heaviness of all the other items ordered. It was tangy and just so refreshing. The sandwiches are from 125 to 135 which are quite reasonable for two good, heavily stuffed sandwiches.

Theobroma is in no way a cheap, inexpensive bakery shop, but it is a good place to go if you wanna eat good quality pastries and other sweet dishes for a reasonable amount of money.
