Having blown hot and cold like never before, winter’s finally begun to bite. Enough to make you lift the lid off the hotpot and check out the spicy, savoury delights. You can stop here for soup, camp at the coffee shop, or just pine for paaya nahari.
For those wary of the bada/chhota conundrum, there’s doubt-free mutton paaya nahari ready to partake at Delhi Fried Chicken opposite Press Club at China Bazaar, the hub of all meaty delights. “It’s our treat to the gourmet who wait all year for this winter specialty,” says Akhtar, whose joint also offers the best of fried chicken and fish, besides the staple biryani-kabab.
Experts say the goat has the unique distinction among quadrupled mammals of being able to stand on its legs for 24 hours. Imagine what strength those legs store! Paaya nahari is a soup that is prescribed to the weakly and the convalescing for the sheer food power. The delicate spicy condiments of the recipe take care of the taste buds.
So, where’s the party tonight?
