What made us love this place ?
Being a chaat person, what can be better than treating yourself with some tangy, lip-smacking Moth Kachoris that aren’t very heavy as well. I have tried this item from different places, but this shop serves an authentic taste that hasn’t changed in years.
Kachoris are basically served with rice and mixed with moth bean curry. But that’s not the end. Yeh toh trailer tha, picture abhi baaki hai mere dost. To give your dish a flavourful twist, tangy imly chutney, vinegar onions i.e sirce wale pyaaz, papdi and a bunch of spices like chaat masala, red chilli are added. Tangy much or spicy much? Give it a try and figure it out.
Are you a spicy food lover or a khata meetha person? If yes, then this should be your ultimate destination.
Worth Visiting Place or not?
One plate of Moth Kachori will cost you around Rs. 30 which is surely economical. Getting these packed for your homes will cost you Rs. 5-10 more. A plate has two kachoris which will make your tummy full and is a complete feast in itself. Also, the vendor makes fresh kachoris in front of you so you can totally rely upon its quality and freshness.
A small bite of this Moth Kachori is in itself a scrumptious meal. Get ready to lost in the world of exotic flavours and treat your tongue with something spicy, tasty and flavourful. The taste will surely remind you of an authentic multani dish.
So, if a place serves fresh and tasty meal which won’t make a hole in your pocket then, what would be your reason to avoid visiting it? Still waiting for christmas? Well, best part is that the kachoris taste better in winters. After all, we all want some hot pipping delicacy in a chilly weather.
