Delhi - Classic Shahi Thukre at Cool Point, Old Delhi

klyeoh | Mar 4, 2013 10:34 AM

The Muslim quarter of old Delhi, especially the streets located opposite the southern Gate No. 1 of the Jama Masjid, Delhi's principal mosque, is a treasure trove for Delhi street foods.

One of the classic street food item is the North Indian take on bread pudding - the Shahi Thukre - and Cool Point, a few doors down from Bombay Orient Hotel, makes the best version in Old Delhi: pieces of bread fried in ghee, then soaked in sugar and cream, with chopped nuts and sugar-glazed cherries thrown in.

A portion of Shahi Thukre here costs INR25 or US 0.45 cents.
