8 Street-Style Egg Dishes From Delhi To Dish Out On World Egg Day

In Delhi, we’re big on food. In fact, if it’s edible, we’re big on it. Parathas, tikkas, kebabs, Maggi, chowmein, momos, you give it to us and we’ll gobble it up in record time. And that inevitably leads us to our ability to do anything with everything. Our most versatile muse being anda (egg). So this World Egg Day, celebrate the food in true Dilli style. Here are 8 popular egg-based street foods from the Capital and how to make them!

 

  1. Anda Paratha

There’s paratha and then there is the fluffy paratha with a spiced egg filling. Don’t confuse it with the regular egg roll though because this one has egg between the paratha layers.

  1. Boiled Eggs

Before you think I need serious help for listing boiled eggs as street food, hear this. Boiled eggs may not be street food but when the same is topped with some salt, pepper, chaat masala, chopped onion, and coriander leaves, it does become a bonafide street grub.Paleo-Snack-Attack-Lazy-Deviled-Eggs
