Speaking of Delhi, street food is the best out there – whether it is parathe from the famous parathe waali gali, or peas filled tikki, matar kulcha or refreshing refrigerated water carts, baddi dil waali Dilli has it all. Remembering all the food I ate, I decided to give Matar Kulcha a shot- especially to help T taste another delicious variety. Even though, I did not have Kulcha preparing Matar was worth it all.
