What Is It?
This stall needs no introduction as people living around North Delhi and students passed out from Kulachi School must have devoured their chole kulche at least once. They have been serving lip-smacking chole kulche for over 40 years.
There is no specific name of this stall, but it’s famously called ‘Kulachi Ke Chole Kulche’. And it’s famously called this as you can find this stall exactly in front of Kulachi Hansraj Model School (Senior wing).
The Man Behind This
Gopal Kumar, the owner has been selling this amazing and delicious plate of Chole Kulche for 15 years and before him, his father and grandfather used to sell this. Gopal Kumar’s father fell ill as a result he had to take the responsibility of his family on his shoulders.
He said, ‘I learnt how to make Chole Kulche while growing up. My father used to make Imli chutney that people loved. So when he retired, I didn’t want to disappoint his customers, so I also started making this dish and now people like our flavours even more.’
