Lotan Chole Kulche Set in the interiors of Delhi 6, in the “Bhool Bhulaiya ” of small corridors is a person sitting with an assortment of spices around him -busy mixing his art in a big container encircled by the local crowd, street food lovers savouring every bite of it. He(Mahaveer) scoops out chole(chickpeas) from a big copper container, tops it up with aloo and spice(one can opt for less/ medium/extra spicy).
Mahaveer then – adds a spoonful of aamchur-chutney(dry mango dip), a sprinkle of garam masala and then garnishes it with hara dhanya (coriander)and mooli (white radish). This is then, served with a pair of fluffy kulcha(fluffy flatbread). Along with spicy chole kulche, this street food vendor also serves Chana soup(Chickpea Soup), with a butter cube added giving an extra flavour to it.
For those who love a spicy meal, this is as good as it gets… The medium one is spicy enough, and the hot one is a must try for all those who can bear a heavy dosage of red chillis. The dish is extraordinary, and a cube of butter makes it even better.
Though there is no sitting arrangement, yet one can spot a fairly large number of people waiting patiently for this delicious chole kulche serving.
