There are a few legendary establishments in Delhi that have maintained their unique taste generation after generation. Only a few restaurants in Delhi serve the iconic Punjabi meal chole bhature in its original form. Nand di Hatti at Sadar Bazar is one among these few establishments. The family is from Rawalpindi, Pakistan, where they ran a chole, kulche, and roti store in Raja Bazar. After partition, they moved to Delhi in 1947 and began selling chole kulche from a cart in Sadar Bazar. Nand Lal ji purchased the business on the corner of Paan Mandi in 1960 and launched his chole bhature cooked with desi ghee. Om Prakash ji, son of the late Nand Lal ji, currently operates the shop with his two sons. His brother has another store called Nand di Hatti. The bhaturas are soft and even crispy, and there is no oil spilling from them. The chole had a delicious combination of flavors. Because of the few most significant spices found in traditional Indian dishes, such as hing (asafoetida), jeera (cumin), ajwain (carom), saunf (fennel seeds), and mirch (red and yellow chillies). They also leave out the onion and garlic. The best part is that you’ll never feel like you’re missing out. The dish is accompanied by amla ka achaar (gooseberry pickles) and green chilies achar.
