Fried chicken in Delhi (India)

David Boyk | Dec 14, 2003 01:25 AM

I never saw it anywhere else in India, but in Delhi, there's a particular kind of fried chicken. I only saw it in Old Delhi, especially right by the Jama Masjid (which is also one of the most beautiful buildings in India), but in that neighborhood it's pretty common. The last two meals of my six months in India were identical, and both at the same restaurant. The Delhi Restaurant is down a relatively wide alley branching to the south of Chandni Chowk, whose main business is shoes. A leg and thigh of pleasantly salty, crispy chicken, two rumali (big, thin "handkerchief" rotis), some lovely, dark, thin chutney, and the standard lime and onion slices, plus a Limca, is Rs. 52.
