dilli haat


Time Out Delhi is ruling our social life. It comes out every 2 weeks and is always full of great events and ideas for the weekend. The latest addition reviewed the restaurants in the food court at Dilli Haat.

“DILLI HAAT is not just a market place; it has been visualized as a showpiece of traditional Indian culture- a forum where rural life and folk art are brought closer to an urban clientele. The DILLI HAAT provides the ambience of a traditional Rural Haat or village market, but one suited for more contemporary needs. Here one sees a synthesis of crafts, food and cultural activity.”

A synthesis, indeed! We had gone to Dilli Haat in August and bought some gifts (like a very ornate gold lock and key), but because vendors are rotated, we happened this time to see a lot more interesting crafts. We bought some eco-friendly and biodegradable disposable plates made from the sheaths of a arecanut tree.

But we didn’t come to Dilli Haat to shop – we came to eat. After some bickering about where to go, Dave won and we went to the food stall for Nagaland (one of the smallest states in India, situated in the north eastern corner of the country). We tried the thali, which consists of a heap of soft rice, watered down dal, fatty pork in a spicy red curry, boiled leaves of spinach, pickled veggies and a very spicy raja mirchi (a relish made with India’s chilliest chilli). Neither of us cared for it much except for the relish. Next time we’ll go to Paama, the food stall for Rajasthan.

  1. The Rajasthan stall is good, as is the Awadh (Uttar Pradesh) one. I’ve also heard good things about the Jammu & Kashmir and the Sikkim stalls, though I haven’t tried those myself.
