With time, people from different areas of India came and settled, making Delhi an assortment of sorts. Slowly and gradually, Delhi assumed some of the aspects of the identity of all the types of people living in it, making multiple identities for itself. As a result, even the traditional food of New Delhi has no distinctiveness. It comprises of South Indian food, Punjabi food, Gujarati food, Rajasthani food and so on. However, there are certain food items for which Delhi is quite famous.

delicious paranthas (a sort of bread). Infact, the entire area of Old
Delhi is famous for the local Delhi cuisine. Then, there is the Bengali
Market in New Delhi that is very popular for Chaat Papri, Golgappas,
Sweets, etc. Delhi is also very popular for its roadside vendors that
serve awesome local cuisine. However, before eating make sure that the
place is neat, clean and hygienic. All said and done, one cannot fully
explain the palatability of these dishes. You have to come to the
capital city of Delhi and enjoy its mouth-watering delicacies yourself.
