I absolutely had to start off the list with this incredible city, with its mind street food. Indore is basically the capital and a hub for street food in the central part of the country. Nothing beats the taste and variety of street food in this city. Earlier Indore was mostly known for its jewelry & ornaments. But over the years, places like Chappan and Sarafa came to be. The most loved foods in these food markets have to be malpuas, gulab jamuns, kalakands and every kind of chaats you can ever imagine. Poha with jalebi are a staple breakfast in the city, and paired with a steaming cup of chai, it’s one of the best things you can have in Madhya Pradesh.
Delhi isn’t far behind from Indore in the street food game, and could be termed as just as popular. Delhi brims with places which are utter heaven for street food lovers. Most of these places can be found in Old Delhi, or more fondly known as Purani Dilli. You will find endless food stalls in Connaught Place, Chandni Chowk, and Delhi Haat. You will find everything in these, from the greasy parathas to the best chaats you will ever taste in your life. The sweets here like gulab jamuns and jalebis are the most authentic ones you’ll find in India.

Some famous areas for street food here are Park Street and New Market. This city isn’t called the City of Joy for no reason, as the phenomenal culinary experience it has to offer you will give you nothing but a ton of joy!
