Indian Street Food
Nukkad’ (nook-urr) is a Hindi term for a tucked-away street corner. In India, these Nukkads are where the most delightful, authentic flavors of South Asia can be found. Whether it be a freshly-prepared plate of chole bhature, a crispy bite of dahi puri, or a sizzling cup of masala chai, Indian street food covers an array of tastes that are sure to enchant your senses. Our aim is to replicate this same magic at our cozy neighborhood cafe!
In 2019, Nukkad (nook-urr) opened its doors in Cary, North Carolina. Our vision is to serve our favorite specialty tastes from Indian street cuisine in our North Carolina neighborhood. Nukkad’s extensive (and affordable!) menu is certain to satisfy any Indian street food craving – whether it be Delhi-style papri chaat, Mumbai-inspired pav bhaji, fusion-spiced Hakka noodles, splendidly stuffed Amritsari kulchas, or even a simple cup of satisfying Madras coffee. Whatever your heart (or stomach!) desires, you can find at Nukkad.
We are located at 1710 High House Road, Cary NC 27513.

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.
