Aloo Wadi

The city of Delhi, being a conglomerate of different cultures, can serve people with Bengali preparations, north Indian sweets or the Punjabi delicacies with equal panache.
Half of the Delhi population consists of Punjabis, owing to the vicinity of Punjab and having Pakistani immigrants. Thus the abundance of Punjabi food, which is a mixture of vegetarian and non-vegetarian preparations, is easily available here!  For gourmets, Delhi is synonymous with Mughlai cuisine, Frontier cuisines and tandoori chicken.  
Delhi is famous for its many popular roadside eateries which serve a wide variety of delicacies from paranthas, chaat to kebabs and a number of mithais.
