When it comes to the arena of street food it is hands down the land of innovation and creativity. The variety of street food one get to taste in whole of Gujrat is incomparable. Since most of the population is vegetarian, the street dishes here is predominantly vegetarian.
We first headed to Mahavir food point and tried their cheese puff filled with mayonnaise, chopped vegetables, chilli flakes and topped with loads of cheese and ketchup. Next, we laid our hands on one of the authentic Guajarati snacks known as sew khamni at Shreeji Khaman Shops. The chana dal is crushed and stir fried with spices, ginger and chili and is served with sprinkled sev and lime juice. Next, we were accompanied by Piyush, a food enthusiast who took us on a street food tour to maharaj samosa centre and chavan house. Here we tried the Navtad samosa. These are tiny triangle shaped samosa filled with potatoes and peas are served with a thick chutney made of dal. Next we moved to Charbhuja sandwich shop to try their chutney and aloo matar sandwich. They serve no-frill sandwiches which are simple and taste just like homemade sandwiches. The aloo matar sandwich is a little bit on the sweeter side. We also tried the cheese chutney sandwich served with cheese, butter and coriander chutney. Next on our list, we ticked off the Ambica daalwada shop and tried their daalwada, the most popular thing during Ahmedabad rains! It is arguably the best daalwada shop in Ahmedabad. The vadas are served with greenchillis and coriander chutney.
We next headed to Shreeji krupa vadapav and tried their pan-fried vadapav served with loads of butter. You’ll find street food getting incorporated and improvised in every nook and corner of Ahmedabad. Here at RK Egg eatery. Here we tried the Surti Ghotala. It is a curry paste made of onions, garlic, chillies, tomatoes etc. and it served with half-fried eggs. It is sprinkled with coriander leaves and lime juice along with 2 fried buns. Next, we move to the Induben Khakrawaala and tried the famous khakras. It is a healthy and tasty Gujrati snack.
To try the unique flavours of ice-cream we head to Derani Jethani ice-cream. Variali ice-cream is a must try here! They have a wide variety of flavours to offer. The flavours are refreshing and it has something to offer to everyone. We also went to the lucky tea stall and tried their bun maska and steaming cup of chai. This was in fact, MF Hussain’s favourite tea stall!
