Imagine a bustling Indian street, how many markets did you picture, what is the crowd like, are there enough children harrowing their mothers for a snack, is there a shy couple sharing a plate of chaat or a bunch of youngsters crowding a popular take-out van? Streets of India, as you must have guessed are incomplete without street food. Flavourful, greasy and good, the street food of India is a variegated fare. And while the list of favourites is long, but we can safely say that we are obsessed with roadside hot momos and the chilli chutney. This simple Tibetan snack has found fans across the country, especially Delhi, where you are sure to find a vendor in every nook and corner of a street.
Since the monsoons are here and most of us are trying to avoid street food in order to avoid risk of infection, the thought of recreating some of our favourite street foods at home is rather tempting to us.
