There is a Hindu temple right down the street from our hostel, and it is surrounded by a few Indian restaurants. Last night, we had such a good meal that we decided to try and figure out where there were more Indian restaurants in the city.
A google search led me to Pahurat, which is a collection of Indian businesses and a market centered around a Sikh temple. We made our way there today and were not disappointed!
We had some naan, okra and potatoes, channa dal, and a salty lassi at a vegetarian restaurant. Almost every restaurant we came across in the area was vegetarian.
Then we stopped by Punjab Sweets, which had an amazing glass case filled with all sorts of delicious little treats.
This little turnover was filled with nuts and tasted a lot like baklava.
A view of the inside:
This was a tender cake soaked in rose water, and filled with frosting
I bought a bag of candy-coated fennel seeds. I love these! They are like tiny little Good N Plenties!
They were from New Delhi!
We were commenting on how we always seek out Indian restaurants - we've eaten Indian food in a bunch of places in the states, plus Rome, Dublin, Bangkok, Chiang Mai... we just have to try it everywhere!
