Street food is popular all over the world, be it a hot dog or pani puri. But nothing can beat the variety of street food in India. Simple yet exotic flavours make Indian street food different and our all-time favorite. No matter where we are, be it a flea market, a mall or at Haldiram’s, we always indulge in street food. No outing is ever complete without some chaat or egg rolls or pakode.
