Delhi being the capital city enjoys a number of benefits which no other Indian city has, one of them is having a state-house/Bhawan for every Indian state to accommodate and help people from their state. The good thing that I found is, all of them have a canteen, which serves authentic cuisine from their region.
The place will bowl you over, first of all, it serves as a good icebreaker for anyone who thinks South-Indian food is only thali, vada and uttapam. Secondly, it is dirt cheap, sorry maybe the term dirt cheap does not do justice here.
Veg Thali – INR 50
Chicken Biryani – INR 100
Fish Fry – INR 50
Chicken Ghee Roast – INR 50
Grape Juice – INR 35
The food is simple, extremely economic and leaves you satisfied. Oh did I mention the rasam, sambhar and buttermilk are free-flowing along with the two veggies of your thali?
Could be a wonderful example of a poor man’s meal !!!
