Delhi may be a cultural cocktail, but there is no denying the fact that Punjabis kind of rule (sorry CR Park folks, we still love your singhada though!). There is a reason the Capital often comes around as synonymous with butter chicken, dal makhni and tikkas! Keeping the Punjabi feels alive, here are 7 paratha places to binge your heart out at!
Gulmohar Marg, DLF Phase 2, Sector 25, Gurgaon, Haryana 122002
This popular corporate hangout does not need an introduction. The place has been around for ages, serving tired and hungry corporate workforce delicious parathas till late into the midnight hour. By the way, does Convergys even know that there is a dhaba by its name, which is probably keeping employees way more happy than the former?

Murthal offers a cluster of excellent dhabas with a few that excel in the art of paratha making – Sukhdev, Gulshan, etc. So technically this place might not be “Delhi”, but with the quality of parathas served here, you wouldn’t mind travelling the 2 hours by road!
