Top 12 Mouthwatering Street Delights In India

Street food is the true essence of India – spicy, flavourful and so irresistible! It’s hard for an Indian to pass by a food stall without taking in the enticing whiff of delectable Samosas and Aloo Chaats. We are quick to stop by to gorge on our favourite street dishes. Isn’t it? So, if you love Indian Street Food, you are going to relish this yummy post!

This is a special collaborative post, which I have compiled after asking my FACEBOOK FANPAGE readers to share their favourite street foods in India and why they love them so much. Well, some of the readers answered the question plainly without mentioning much, but some of them really expressed the ‘yumminess’ of their favourite street food with lots of gusto.

So enjoy the delicious post prepared by my wonderful Facebook Fans –    

Pav Bhaji

The Pav Bhaji in Mumbai - The spicy red sauce (Bhaji) soaks into the delicious fresh bread (pav) for a perfect snack! Mmmmm - The Yoga Nomads

Chole Bhature

I love them, because I consider them as complete food when I am hungry. Chole Bhature is something I can still try even when I am not hungry. These food items tempt me to try and enjoy their flavours. – Vishal Grover

Sev puri

Sev puri for the mix of flavours and textures. Gobi for the spice and yummy taste. And dosa for the crispness and the chutney. And street food in general because it is delicious and offers fantastic opportunities to people-watch while you eat, forgot about shawarma also -- because it's the best thing to eat after a few drinks! - Veena Rangaswami

I like the taste of the corn with the scent of charcoal on it, mixed with some seasoning! – Rohith Girish

Corn on the cob. Such a unique combination of salty, sour and spicy. – Indiapalette

Mall Road in Mussoorie

Golgappe aka Pani puri

All through life, people struggle for happiness, tears, spicy flavour in life. All I do is go and eat Golgappa, Puchka or Bhaiyya's 5 ki pani puri. – Feet On The Map

Dahi wale golgappe..b’coz they are sweeeeet and cold and spicy and mouth watering..... and you just can’t resist eating them... – Swara Sharma

Gol gappe one of the popular street food of India (Pani ke patake ).... – Shweta singh

Spicy aaloo sabji and crispy kachodis

I love the spicy aaloo sabji and crispy kachodis that are sold at breakfast time at various points across Delhi. There are some good points for the same such as Chandni Chowk near Paranthe wali gali, Old Hanuman Mandir near Yamuna and a few more. I also love golgappe. – Praveen Gupta

Well my favourite street food is "Bedai-Sabji" at St. Johns Crossing in Agra & Onion Kachaudi at market of Mansarovar in Jaipur. I would say "Ek baar jo khaaye, usse raha na jaaye". They are really... really delicious. – Manu Khandelwal

Steamed Momos

Ok street food in India, my recent one - "Steamed Momos" in yuksum (Sikkim) served by a humble couple, outside their village hut, stuffed full of fresh veggies(included bamboo)in typical freshly grounded spices, no fat, neat and clean. The best so far! – Shubham Aggarwal

Dosa

In case of dosa, one thing which makes the difference is the potato stuffing and white chutney. Stomach full of experience (along with crunchy flavor of their outer crust) is what makes them my favourite street food. – Vishal Grover

Hiranandani in Mumbai

Dahi Vada

We like street food like mainly Dosa, Idli, sambar, Chat, Dahi vada, Pakoda, etc. In Cuttack people specially do not eat breakfast at home, but at road side shops. - Ch Sidhartha Mishra

Not really food ~ yet the Marcella Chai, watching, listening, interacting with the people that gather .... This is the local India. Where the food people try to duplicate in other countries ~~~~ oh not the chai. - Leila Niemann
