6 quirky dishes in Delhi NCR that you must try at least once

Gol gappa with creamy mango mousse, anyone?

We dilliwalas love to experiment. We give tandoori twist to simple, steamed momos and love our samosa and fries on pizza. Though we are in the second month of the year, Delhi already has a lot of quirky, out-of-the-box dishes to offer. These might sound weird but make sure you taste them at least once.

1. Jack Daniel Dal Makhani

What could possibly be better than dal makhni? Boozy dal makhni. If you’re looking to try it out, you can at Delhi’s Connaught Place.
