I was in Indore a few days ago for a mere one and a half day trip, and man what a trip it was. In just one day I covered 56 Dukaan, Nafees Biryani and Sarafa Bazaar. Here’s my Indore food trip in pictures (it’ll make you pack your bags, trust me) and a quick checklist of what to eat and where whaen you travel to Indore.
What to eat and where:
Pohe-Jalebi – Anywhere in Indore, every area has a favourite shop.
Coconut Crush – Goyal Juice, Palasia Market
Mutton Biryani – Nafees (also try the shahi tukda and haleem available on weekends)
Cheese Chutney Sandwich – Sapna Sandwich; they have multiple outlets (the chutney is amazing with the perfect blend of dhaniya and pudina)
Benjo – Johny Hot Dog, 56 Dukaan (it’s basically omelette with pav and chutney, but the guy does something with the omelette which makes it really worth trying)
Khopra Pattice – Vijay Chaat House, 56 Dukaan (deep fried potato pattice stuffed with coconut and chutney)
Cold Coffee – Lotus Hut Cafe (simple, home style, comforting)
Bhutte Ki Kachori – Kothari Market (flaky, crisp and stuffed with mashed corn)
Hare chhod aur batle ki kachori – First shop at Sarafa Market (kachori stuffed with green peas and green gram, winter special)
Bhutte ka kees – Suresh Chaat House, Sarafa Market
Garadu – Sarafa Market
Sabudana khichdi and Wafers bana ke – Sanwariya, Sarafa Market
Kabeet (wood apple) ki chutney – Sarafa Market
Dahi bade – Joshi Dahi Bada House, Sarafa Market
Anna ka paan – Rajwada
Sev ka paratha – Pandit Ji Parathewale, Gita Bhavan
Take your appetite along when you plan to visit Indore cause the city has a lot of food to offer.
