Aloo Chat

Aloo Chat

               Delhi is the traditional and capital of India. It is the third largest city of the world. It is also the second largest metropolis after Mumbai with a population of over 13 million. Delhi is also one of the oldest continually inhabited cities of India.

Delhi stands in a triangle formed by the Yamuna river in the east and spurs from the Aravalli range in the west and south. It is surrounded by Haryana on all sides except east where it borders with Uttar Pradesh, Delhi has a semi-arid climate with high variation between summer and winter temperature.

After Independence on 15th August 1947, Delhi was officially declared as the Capital of republic. The 69th constitutional amendment is a milestone in Delhi's history. In 1991, Delhi was declared as the National Capital Territory. The National Capital Territory comprise nine districts, 158 villages and 62 towns. (info courtesy: publish your article)

Delhi don't have any particular cuisine and it is fusion of mughalai. Chandni Chowk, often called the food capital of India, is famous
for its street food. The variety consists of snacks, especially chaat.The streets are lined with halwais (sweet-sellers), namkeenwallahs (sellers of savouries) and paranthewali gali.  
The real flavour of the Delhi street food lies in the chaat and I am sharing awesome aloo chat with traditional fried aloos. For health constrain, you can also add baked aloos and enjoy this simple delicious chat..
