Who is not fascinated by Dhaba’s food if set off on a road trip. Dhabas are the road-side eatery joints on Indian highways mostly comprise of one-shed building where you can enjoy the fresh prepared food sitting on cots. Food is very much pocket friendly and there is always a hint of local cuisine in the taste.
I found a lot of Dhabas while travelling from Delhi to Chandigarh with some interesting names “Punjab di putar” ,”Sing da Dhaba”, “Sardarji Dhaba” ….And if you are making a plan in winter ,then i am sure you gonna to have the best gastronomic experience that i cherished till date . The smoky flavor of makki-di roti with sarso da saag is completely a bliss to your taste bud .Try to find a dhaba near mustard farming, so that you can enjoy the view while having your food on charpai(cot).
Again there are lot of dhabas i came across while going to Devprayag from Rishikesh which were pure vegetarian. I had the best “Aloo Parathas” there served with a side dish of Rajma, curd & a slightly runny chili-mint chutney.
In Odisha there are dhabas too ,mostly it’s a break journey point for all those long-distance traveler and truckies on highways.
The recipe i am sharing is what i could recall from my memory that i relished at a dhaba in Odisha. I did it in completely my way. Try it & you gonna love the taste.
