Chaat and Pakora Stalls
There are a couple of Chaat Stalls which serve different chaats like Aloo Tikki Chaat, Sev Puri Chaat, Papri Chaat etc. The tongue tickling stuffed spicy Tikki chaat gives a joyous Indian street food experience. Similarly, you should try Ram Ladoos with grated radish and green chutney. These chaat stalls are a good option for vegetarian foodies.
Soya Chaap Stalls
If you are a vegetarian, then for the main course you must try Soya Chaap with different flavours. Pindi Soya Chaap, Afgani Chaap, Pudina Chaap, Malai Chaap, Masala Chaap, Achari Chaap are some of the flavours that you can try. Don’t miss Tawa Chaap Gravy with Rumali Roti.
Rolls and Tandoori Stalls
After tantalizing your taste buds with tangy-spicy chaats, you head straight towards the Rolls and Tandoori stalls. The vendors sell perfectly marinated and cooked chicken tikkas. The tangdi kebabs are succulent and with a deliciously smoky char, so good you don’t even dip the tangdi in the green chutney that came with it along with some sliced raw onion. The chicken malai tikkas are also luscious. Vegetarians must try delicious Paneer Tikkas. The juicy and tender Shawarma served with a generous serving of creamy mayonnaise is every foodie’s dream come true.
Biryani, Roti and Mughlai Curry Stalls
The thing to eat here, of course, is the Chicken or Mutton qorma: with a thick gravy, dark red oil. Served alongside is hot and soft Rumali Roti, the perfect accompaniment for qorma. From Mutton Biryani to Chicken Biryani, you’ll be hooked.
Finally, its time for sweets. The two most visible items on sale here are Sahi Tukda (mashed version) and Rabdi. Finish your food walk at Brahmaputra Market with a bowl of Sahi Tukda which is not too sweet, just perfect and is also my personal favourite.
The good thing about the roadside food stalls is that they dish up food really fast: you place your order, and you can depend upon being served within five minutes, probably less. This is how the place definitely shares an intimate relationship with food after the sun goes down. Visit this famous market to sample some lip-smacking street fare, while you’re in Noida.
