Delhi is synonyms to street food for me. Though most of the street food has now made its way to Bangalore now, there are few things I still miss. The kulcha chola (actually dried peas curry) sold in the side of the road in huge copper vessels in the evenings and moong dal ladoo served in the afternoon along with grated radish and the green and red signature chaat chutneys.
There is a guy in Lajpat Nagar close to Central Market in Delhi who makes the best moong dal ladoos. No trip to the market would ever be complete without eating a plate (or two) of these ladoos from him.
Moong Dal ladoos are made by soaking & grinding the yellow moong dal with a handful of spices. The batter is then deep fried and served with grated radish for the crunch. Now since I don’t get it on the road side, I make it at home now and then 🙂
