Street food in Delhi amazes us over and over. We love all the chaat this city has to offer but, today we’re not talking about papdi or dahi. It’s fruit chaat! Prabhu Chaat Bhandar at Mansingh Road near Barakhamba is a capital gem for fresh juicy fruits in Dilli style for just ₹40. Try something new! This Winter, Devour Dry Fruit Sheermals From The Famous ‘Chacha’ In Delhi’s Chandni Chowk.
What is it
Imagine all the masalas of Delhi street chaats and put them on plate of freshly cut seasonal fruits. No matter what the season, the fruit chaat is always topped with pomegranate. The spicy masala is balanced well with the sweetness of the fruit. We feel like every single fruit is handpicked for perfect taste. They’re always ripe, just to perfection. We never thought fruit could be this good but, healthy food is actually taking over. We’re not scared anymore. If fruit tastes just as good as cheese, then we are damn well going to eat it! Also, vegetarian Biryani exists.
Let us just point out that this is the perfect escape for the health-conscious junta of Delhi. Forget organic cafés and go back to mother nature for real delicious flavours. For all those who thought street food is not for the calorie conscious, think again! Delhi has you covered. This is the best way to go about your cheat meal cravings without cheating at all. The fruit chaat here is famous all over the city. People flock from North South East and West to the city’s center of food heaven.
The stall has been operating under an umbrella for decades now. It’s been at the same stop with the same customers for long time. This fruit chaat holds a sweet spot in the heart of Lutyens. Only 5 minutes from India Gate, this little place enjoys VIP status. The aloo tikki here is also extremely famous for ₹50. People are always crowding this street corner for the fruit chaat and aloo tikki.
When juice is too cold for the winter, but your body needs a health dose, opt for fruit chaat instead. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Fruit chaat will keep the cravings away too. Make a day out of it – get a plate and sit at India Gate or see what else you might have been missing in Connaught Place!
