Square Meal Review of Roti Chai Street Kitchen ?

Roti Chai’s two-pronged attack on anonymous Indian tucker begins upstairs, with a ‘street kitchen’ dealing in the snacks and street food that brighten everyday life on the subcontinent. Bhel-puri and dhokla cakes, transit café curries and cartons of Frooti are served in funky canteen surrounds – though it’s not so casual that you can’t get a lychee teapot martini. Downstairs in the softly lit but ‘somewhat industrial’ dining room, layers of spice are carefully built around premium ingredientsand neat touches extend to a roti of the month. Top picks from the starters are crunchy palak papri chaat and deep-fried ‘chicken 65’ loaded with fiery heat, while the house takes on pork vindaloo and butter chicken set a gratifyingly high standard; the dhal is ‘excellent’, too. Look out for Monday evening supper clubs with special menus. (Note: the contact/price details above refer to Roti Chai Dining Room.)

    inher30s :: Roti chai

    My all-time favourite food, Pani Puri (Or Golgappa) is rather unflatteringly referred to as ‘cold mint water in a dough shell’ by a close friend. It is technically correct, but the hit of spiced water (pani just means water) with the creaminess of mashed potato, a bit of sour tamarind chutney and the mildness of chickpeas, all stuffed into a crispy shell gets my mouth watering every time. I’m almost tempted to stop writing this now and go on a hunt!

    Visits to family in India were always celebrated with the wider family sitting down to a Pani-puri binge and competitions were had to see who could put away the most (That was me, but that shouldn’t shock you, you’re well aware of my gluttonous ways). Unfortunately, trips to the local street vendors were strictly off limits, what with Delhi-belly and I being on rather intimate terms. Strict rules were put in place to counter this, but since it didn’t make much difference anyway, I should have just rebelled and scoffed away...
