Indian Street Food
If you’ve ever been to a busy city in India, you know that street food is the epicenter of authentic Indian culture. Whether it be a sizzling cup of chai, a fresh plate of pani puri, or a sweet bite of orange jalebi, the tempting foods and flavors found in the alleyways of Indian cities are a magical experience difficult to describe…you just have to experience it for yourself! Luckily, you can now do exactly that at Nukkad.

The Specialty Of The house
one of the spicier street foods on our list, vada pav is a piece of deep-fried, carb-laden, vegetarian-friendly heaven. The dish consists of a potato patty rolled in garbanzo bean flour, then deep-fried, and sandwiched in between two bread buns which is then served alongside one or two chutneys or sauces.
The Specialty of The House
Although this kind of Indian street food is most commonly found in North India and Pakistan, chaat is also a generic term for South Asian street food in general.
The dish consists of papri (thin pieces of fried dough) which are layered between boiled chickpeas, boiled potatoes, occasionally bean sprouts and a seasoned yogurt sauce. Depending on the type of chaat, other components can be added in such as aloo tikki and samosa. The dish is then garnished with tamarind chutney and sev.
Makki Ki Roti Sarson Ka Saag
The dish is regarded as a signature preparation of Punjabi style of cooking. It is prepared mostly in winter and makes for the perfect party food.
