Food and drink at Humayun's Tomb
Pakoras are the ultimate street food.
Available with a variety of dips, from tamarind to mango-mint, these bundles of potatoes, onions, and spices are battered in chickpea flour and water to keep them light and airy.
For the true experience, nothing says Delhi quite like Aloo Chaat. The blend of spiced potatoes, tangy tamarind sauce, coriander seeds, and pomegranate is both salty and sweet, and when you add lashings of yoghurt the snack is also incredibly refreshing.
Kulfi is sometimes known as Indian ice cream, but as it isn’t whipped it takes much longer to melt. Flavours are plentiful and varied, from mango to pistachio and everything in between - perfect for cooling down after a day of exploring.
