Top Street Foods to Relish in Indore

When in India, consider gluttony a virtue. We would recommend that the only true way to experience the richness of the country’s diversity is through your taste buds.

And as much as food stands for comfort and familiarity of your home, especially if you are a migrant to a new city, there are plenty of good eating places for the adventurous soul. Indore, the most populous city of Madhya Pradesh and the land of Rajwada Palace and Lal Bagh Palace is right up the list with its scrumptious street food.  A bite of traditional Indori dishes will surely leave you craving for more. Needless to say, with the city fast becoming an education hub, you are likely to find large groups of students from various PG in Indore getting familiar with the city through its popular food joints. When in Indore, these are the things that you should try:

Bhutte ki Kees:

Maize commonly known as bhutta, is loved across India. It is consumed as a roasted snack and is rich in bioflavonoids, fiber and carotenoids.

Dal Bafla:

A cousin of the Rajasthani dal- bati or Bihari litti, dal bafla It is made by baking wheat, curd and spices. To give it a scrumptious flavour, these balls are soaked in water and then boiled.

Khopra Patties:
