I've seen several mentions of the grocery store and some of the food in the mini-food court at Waltham India Market, but I don't think that I've read anything about the fried chicken that one of the stands sells.
Yeah, it's under a heat lamp and you don't know how long it's been sitting there (unless you get lucky and time it when a new batch comes out), but, damn, this is some of the best fried chicken that I've had in the greater Boston area. Even if it comes from under the heat lamps, it almost always has a nice crunch, the chicken is always moist, and it has a slight spice. For $1 - $1.25 per piece it's an amazing deal! I always go for the thighs.
The same stand has some dishes in warming trays. I've only had the spicy chick pea one. (I think it is a Chana or Chole Masala.) It had more of a kick than what I get at most Indian restaurants when I ask for very spicy (which to me is a very good thing), and it was great. I think that I paid around $5.
The chaats sold at the middle stand are delicious. They run about $5 each. I've had several, and I like them all.
Anyway, go for the fried chicken & get a few more dishes since tasty leftovers are a very good thing!
