If your heart’s pining for the comfort of good ol’ North Indian food in Chennai, we’ve got you covered. Here are 7 delicious places that are serving scrumptious food from up North!
The first place that comes to our mind when we think “North Indian” food is Pind. If you’re beyond the usual selections of paneer butter masala and vegetable kadai, give their hara-bhara-kebab a try! You won’t be disappointed.
We know how much Chennai loves biryani and that’s why Fully Local makes it to this list. Joining the ranks of the locally loved Ambur and Thalapakatti biryani is the Fully Local’s Lucknowi style mutton biryani. A perfect Sunday lunch, we’d say.
Sure, the usual butter chicken and paratha can get boring. That’s why this yummy chicken stuffed Mughlai paratha is a winner. It’s a delectable Bengali treat that’s sure to hit all the right notes, give it a shot at Petuk!
If you love potatoes more than you love your own life, we suggest checking out Kailash Parbat‘s legendary Dum Aloo Punjabi. A delicious, smooth and spicy gravy that consists of baby potatoes – it’s a game changer and you’ll definitely want to load your plate up after just a bite!
Looking to take a break from the usual roti and curry combo? You’ve got to try the epic Rajasthani Dal Batti at Mansukh’s Sweets & Snacks! A quintessential Rajasthani staple, it’s made of dal and eaten with a dollop of ghee. A nutritious yet tasty option!
Can you really miss out rajma-chawal if you’re eating north Indian food? The answer you’re looking for is no. Grab your dose of this lovely dish at Uttar Bhojan. They serve this in heaps of ghee (if you ask them nicely!). Trust us, you don’t want to miss this!
This list would definitely be incomplete without the mention of the humble yet insanely delicious puri with Madrasi oondhiya at Amdavadi! A Gujarati favourite, this combo of puri and oondhiya was specially curated by the good folks at Amdavadi for the people of Chennai. So go savour it!
