One of the good things the winters in Delhipresent is the mesmerizing Daulat-ki-chaat. Although I am not too sure whether it originated in Delhi or not but I am sure that anyone who eats this once, will simply fall in love with it.

As the name suggests, this is no ordinary road side food but rich and creamy local dessert that leaves you yearning for more. Just head to the streets of Purani Dilli, just next to Kinari Bazaar in the peak of winters and experience this scrumptious delicacy.

The roadside stories doing the rounds suggest that the cream is set to stay in the open during the cold wintery nights. After a thin layer of dew drops add the magic, it is carefully skimmed away from the cream and is mixed with a bit of the local sugar or jaggery and served to the connoisseur. Surely, the creamy delicacy is a gift from heavens.

The way the dish is prepared, is probably why it is called a Chaat, but I am telling you, the taste is just beyond words to describe. Light as if it was cotton, it simply melts in your mouth leaving behind a flavor you will simply never forget. Even though its made of cream, you will not feel thetypical heaviness after eating such a rich concoction.

Where: Near Kinari Bazaar Area, Chandni Chowk, Delhi, New Delhi
When: Peak winters only
What price: Rs. 20/-
Grub Recommendation: Two plates per person is all that one can eat. Have some parathas at the Parathewaali Gali, followed by Daulat-ki-chaat.
