Tried and Tasted: Bedmi Aloo at Chawri Bazaar

Why the streets of Old Delhi are a food lover's paradise is no secret. Here, every hole-in-the-wall is filled with aromatic, mouth watering and inexpensive food. We once again hunted Chawri Bazaar, this time in search of Bedmi Aloo, a breakfast fare that's both tasty and light on the stomach. The shop that sells this is the hundred-year-old Shyam Sweets, which used to be one of the landmarks of Delhi at some point. Bedmi is stuffed poori layered with a paste of Urad Dal. It is served with a mildly spiced potato curry, lightly cooked chholey and a dollop of some tart fenugreek (methi) chutney.
