Fateh Ki Kachori: Best Kachori In Delhi
Fateh Ki Kachori located near St Xavier’s School in Raj Niwas Marg of North Delhi. The nearest metro station is Kashmere Gate or Civil Lines. The Delhi Street food vendor is famous for selling kachoris and mutter kulchas(chickpeas with fluffy flatbread). Late Shri Fateh Chand started selling delicious kachoris in a bicycle, and mutter kulchas in 1951, now their grandsons are managing his famous kachori venture.
A dozen of dried leaf bowls are placed out on a big copper plate; the light and crispy kachoris are coated with chole. After that, it is topped with a zesty aamchur dip & sprinkle with homemade masala — a mixture of seasonings and salts. It includes black pepper & yellow chili powder, cloves, black salt, jeera, ajwain & cardamom. Followed by a sprinkle of sweet dip and a pinch of salt, topped by a sprinkle of freshly cut ginger, green chili, coriander and sliced onions.
One of the grandsons told us: “our grandfather’s sister first suggested the mouth-watering pairing of kachori with choley”. Late Fateh Chand started by selling a dried leafs bowl of two kachoris for ten paise during the initial phase, now priced at Rs 25. On interacting with a local customer, he said ” the price might have increased, but the taste is absolutely perfect.
Though there is no sitting arrangement, yet one can spot a fairly large number of people especially college goers and locals waiting patiently for this delicious hot ‘n’ spicy kachoris and choley kulcha.Delhi Food Walks has rated them as Best Kachoris in town.
The street food vendor has never thought of expanding the kachoris business and a big poster also displayed stating “we don’t have any branches”.
