Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

There is no love greater love than the love for food and all Indoris will too agree with this saying. Indore is a certified haven for all the foodies and if there is one thing that Indoris love sincerely, it is the taste of the amazing grub this city has to offer.

The city offers a wide variety of lip-smacking food, with options that suit every palate. Though you can find literally everything you crave in the city, there are certain dishes unique to Indore and if you have not tried them yet, well, now is a good time!

Poha Jalebi

While this combination sounds weird to all those who haven't tried it, the dish is probably one of the most popular breakfast options in Indore! This delicacy is a blend of two opposing flavours of sweet jalebi and salty poha that stand out and give a wholesome flavour joy ride to your senses! With the addition of the crunchy 'namkeen sev' on the soft poha, with a side of sweet and goo-ey jalebi, this combo offers a flavour fusion like no other!

Moong Bhajiya

The Indore city food exploration is incomplete without its moong bhajiya! This is simply a lentil fried pastry that is served straight from the frying pan! This street snack is best when it is eaten with green mint chutney and a cup of tea, making them the no.1 rainy day dish!

Khatta samosa

Indore's unique variation of the otherwise regular and vastly popular samosa, is one of its most popular dishes! Like its name, the samosa is tangier than usual and is served with a blend of spicy and sweet chutney, which balance the savoury flavour. So, if you are looking for something delightful, this samosa would surely serve the purpose with its sweet, sour and spicy zest!

Bhutte ki Khees

This savoury dish is a city speciality and is one dish that can beat all your spice cravings! Bhutte ki Khees is made by wrapping mashed and boiled corn in a batter of ground flour and an array of choicest spices, which is then fried in hot ghee! The elite and typical taste of this dish cannot be described as anything but Indori!


If you have not tried yam yet, Indore's garadu ki chaat is a good place to introduce the taste of these soft tubers to your palate! This is a zingy dish of boiled yam which is seasoned with spices and lemon juice! It is that one dish that is both healthy and tasty, so indulge away!

Khopra Pattis

A great alteration of the usual potato patty, Indore's Khopra or coconut patty is a rich and delicious street food option. This deep-fried delicacy is more of a tikki than a regular patty and is served with a tangy red chutney! You need to try this lip-smacking dish as soon as possible!

Dahi Bada

Though a vert common chaat option, we can assure you that Indore's Dahi Bada is the undisputed winner of all the variations you have tried so far! Right from their unique tossing preparation to their mouth-watering toppings, this is one dish that looks as good as it tastes!

Dal Bafla

Dal Bafla is Indore's improvisation of the Rajasthaani Daal Baati. Prepared primarily using wheat as a base, the doughnuts are first boiled and then fried. Served with hot daal, this is a complete meal option at the price of street food!

Mawa Bati

For all the sweet-tooths out there, if you have not tried Indore's Mawa Bati, you are seriously missing out on great things in life! To simply expalin, this dish is the Indori version of the popular Indian gulaab jamun which is filled with rich and crispy dry fruits and nuts!


As the name suggests, this is a humongous, scaled up version of the Indian Jalebi! One piece of this and you will be cured of any sweet-craving in no time. The combination of crusty covering with gooey, warm and sweet caramel filling is a sweet haven you cannot miss!

Sabudane ki khichdi

This simplicity of this dish with its complicated flavours, soft texture and great quantity to money ratio is what makes it a must have when you are in Indore! With a peculiar blend of local spices, leaves and onion, this dish is one of the healthiest street food options out there!

Indori Namkeen

You really need to believe in the savoury magic that Indore's simple namkeens can cast on your taste buds! From Mathri, Chikkis, Indore Sev, Aloo Bhujia to many others, you will hardly run out of options and praises!

Kulfi Faluda

There is no better way to wrap up your meal with a sweet dish and the city special Kulfi Faluda is an excellent option! From the rich ice-cream taste to the sweet faluda and heavy garnish of dry fruits, this sweet delicacy is everything you have wished for in a kulfi and much, much more!
