Street Food in Indian cities

Street food agnomen is given to foods which are sold on stalls in and around any market place. India is a country of various language and food. Visiting Indian metro cities and not having street food is considered as real miss of fun as well as taste. I have been fortunate to travel & stay in many cities of India such as Kolkata, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and many others. Out of these cities Kolkata, Chennai and Delhi are considered as Metro cities in India, Of course it includes Mumbai but I have not visited this financial capital of India yet.

Kolkata, West Bengal
 The street food is amazing at Kolkata various streets such paani puri at Esplanade popularly known as Dharmatalla, sweets all across Bengal, Rolls at park street, Momo all around Kolkata. There are several other varieties you can test without any fear of health issue.

Paratha & samosa: not to be missed
Various curry's
Chennai, Tamil Nadu
Chennai is on southern part of India. You can try Chennai tea and coffee sold at street as well as fired corns, chilli & banana bhajji  along with coconut water. But you have to be little careful with any other street food as water is not that great here and so better to slip in restaurant for awesome iddli and dosa.

“When people wore hats and gloves, nobody would dream of eating on the street. Then white gloves went out of style and, suddenly, eating just about anything in the street became OK." as told by Jane Addison
