A ‘rich’ winter street food: Daulat ki Chaat

Daulat ki chaat

Old Delhi is a well known hub for those undaunted by the crowd and willing to explore. The Red Fort, the Jama Masjid, the markets, the eating joints and so on. In my earlier visits, I had not come across this street food because it was not in winter. Daulat ki chaat is sold on the streets of old delhi only in the winter. From what I have been told, it is mainly malai cream served with khoya and flavoured with safron and  rosewater. The cream gets easily spoilt and hence, it is seasonal as a street food.

My first impression of the street food was its veil and I wondered why it was veiled like a lady!
