Sitaram Dewan Chand’s shop is a small affair, but with the facility of tables on the pavement outside, at which you can stand and eat.
Sitaram’s fresh bhature are quite as soft and fluffy as those at Nagpal’s. But they certainly trump Nagpal in the taste department. For one, the bhature are even more liberally stippled with paneer shreds. But that is not all that makes them so special — it is also the fresh coriander, and the variety of spices (including fennel, pomegranate seeds, and others that I couldn’t unravel) that are mixed into the flour.
Of course, the zesty chhole, served with green chillies and onions, are a favourite in of themselves.
Location: The address is 2246, Chuna Mandi, Paharganj. This is on the street (technically, “Rajguru Marg”). The shop is on the ground floor of the building which houses Hotel Chanakya.
