Lifestyle & Culture Lucknow

You know what they say- breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But what they don’t tell you, is where to find what, when hungry and in Lucknow! From malai chai to jalebi, dhokla to idlis, Lucknow has options for all your breakfast cravings.

The streets of Lucknow have a lot to offer even when it comes to a wholesome breakfast. So we’ve risen to the occasion to let you know about 7 breakfast items you can chomp on & where to get them from when here in Lucknow. The best part? These breakfast places in Lucknow will suit everyone’s pockets and won’t leave your gut gutted.

Khasta Kachori

Another breakfast staple up here in the North, Khasta Kachori is a famous street food which is often served with hari chutney, maseledar pyaaz and aloo ki sabzi. No matter how you serve it, Khasta Kachori majorly appeals to spicy food lovers!

Pair this up with a cup of hot chai and you’ll be feeling full for the next 4-5 hours for sure. To snag the best plates of Khasta Kachori, you gotta head to Rattilal’s, Ajay or Bajpayee Kachodi Bhandar here in the city; thank us later. The laal aloo ki sabzi is amazing BTW!

Chai aur Bun-Makkhan

The eternal Lakhnavi classic, Chai aur Bun-Makkhan is what brings the society together. Every nook and cranny of the city has a stall with people from all walks of life, crowding here and there, at odd hours too. A kulhad full of good chai engages people, like no other in the city.

Boiling tea on the stove and fresh buns stacked neatly, waiting to be devoured with a generous spank of butter, is what pulls us all in and you don’t need to be hungry to eat. Lucknow is brimming with chai places but if you want chai which would speak to your soul, go for Keval, Shukla, Sharma Ji ki Chai and Prem for sure.

Chole Bhature & Lassi

Chole-Bhature is an award winning pair which makes our mornings better and our inner Punjabis awaken, at the mere whiff of the chole, being curried to perfection. The fresh bhature, being nudged in the hot oil and ballooning up to be dipped in gravy, is a sight to behold. All of it served with extra achaar, pyaaz, nimbu and chillies, just makes it all the more drool-worthy and a glass of lassi afterwards, seals the deal.

To catch up on this delightful breakfast experience, you’ve gotta head to Lucknow’s most trusted, Shri Lassi Corner because they do it like no other in the city. They’re usually booked out, given the tiny space yet massive popularity, so go over early for this one. Alternatively, you can also try out Sardar Ji Ke Mashoor Chhole Bhature to begin your day on a delicious note.

Parathe

No matter how angrez you are and how you like your eggs on the side, the moment you bite into a morsel of steaming hot paratha, your inner desi is bound to be awakened. Be it aloo, pyaaz, gobhi, panner or keema parathe, you cannot just stop at one mouthful of it, specially if it’s served hot from mom’s kitchen.

But if you wanna explore your options, we’d suggest you to check out Parathe Wali Gali, Punjabi Choolha and of course, the youth-favourite corner, Bhole- The Chai Nashta Point.

Dhokla

Feathery yet fluffy dhoklas sitting on a plate, doused in chutneys and drizzled with mild spices- just the mere thought of it, makes our tum-tums rumble. A Gujarati specialty, dhoklas are quite popular here as well. They’re light on our stomachs and on the calorie-count too, so even fitness freaks can indulge in this, once in a while.

To satiate your dhokla cravings, you can check out Chitchor Mithai Shop, Bhatia Matthi Wale, Chhapan Bhog and oh, Shree Rajbhog too!

Idli-Uttapam

South Indian breakfast options are known to be another raging favourite here in Lucknow and the reason is justified! We have Southie hubs like Tamil Nadu Dosa, Anna Dosa Point, Curry Leaf, Kerala Cafe right here in the city, who are known for their offerings.

Go over to these places and relish a fine plate of of idli-uttapam and you’ll know why we throng here and there for our breakfast scenes. Pair the tender idlis with a spicy bowl of sambar and kick the heat with coconut chutney; to have a taste of breakfast from God’s own country.

Dahi-Jalebi

Another breakfast dessert combo which Lucknowites swear by, Dahi Jalebi is available in abundance, at even the tiniest sweet shop in Lucknow! This combination of sweet jalebis mopped up in khatta dahi is an early morning palate pleaser and we cannot ever have enough.

To hog on this delish match, head to Netram to get the best taste. The Jalebis and Jalebas at Chappan Bhog are a must try too!

Knock Knock

When in the City of Nawabs, you’re never out of options to keep your palate on a foodsploration streak! So now that we’ve mentioned the best places to grab your brekkie from, we see no excuse for you to skip out on a nawab-like breakfast.

P.S. Closed on Thursdays

Surely 2019 has lot more facilities and technologies which have made our lives easier and of course, pushed Lucknow towards development!

But we the desi kids always have a longing to ride a time-machine, to just go back to the period when we were blissfully unaware of the 21st-century chaos and monotony. It was the time when the alarm rang to wake you up for school and not the office, tiffin was from Mom’s kitchen and not Zomato and we were 100 pounds lighter.

So to put you face-to-face with the 90s nostalgia, here are 7 blasts from the past which would give you major throwback goals, if you’re a true-blue Lucknowite.

Long queues outside Anand & Novelty cinema

Currently we have several online portals to book our movie tickets and we can even choose our seats, at the click of a button. But back in the day, watching a movie depended on our patience to stand in a queue.

You know what is even more annoying than standing a looooong queue for a movie? The halls running out of tickets by the time you reached the counter. For situations like these, we had to be dependent on ‘black’ tickets, which came at a hefty price.

The craze for movies has always been a trend in the country; so much so that there have been instances of Lathi-Charge at such venues, in the past! When Gadar had released at Anand Cinema Hall, there was a shortage of tickets and the charge had followed due to the chaos. During the screening of Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, people waited outside halls for a whole month to get their tickets- bhaisaaab crazy times!

The Wheel of Fortune & Free Kulfi

As a 90s kid, we’d prefer kulfis from thelas more than ice-creams from Baskin Robbins, any day! There were kulfi walas who roamed the locales and summer afternoons were incomplete without their blaring calls resonating in the streets. We would gather our chillars and then head straight to the door, lest we lost him.

These vendors always had a Wheel of Numbers where you could guess a number and spin it; if the number popped up as you had imagined, you’d get a free kulfi! How kul was that?!

The 1st Pizza Hut & GPO tak lambi line

When Lucknow was alien to the concept of Italian food, Pizza Hut set up its base in Hazratanj and introduced us to the world of a cheesy love-affair!

There was an instance of the crowd going bonkers about this new release in the city and believe it or not, just to enter the outlet, there were snaking lines till the GPO. We didn’t know what a pijja was and now, our diets are mostly about pizza [peet-sa] whenever we gotta order in. People are more loyal towards Pizza Hut than their partners, apparently.

Doordarshan & Chill

Now we have Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime wageirah wageirah to keep us company but pehle nah, it was Doordarshan and chill for us!

And we didn’t call bae for it; we called the whole mohalla to be a part of our Sunday serials and whoever had a coloured TV, the crowd used to throng there. Doordarshan gave us hits like Shriman Shrimati, Ramayana, Udaan, Dekh Bhai Dekh and so on and we’d still watch ‘em any day, over Gopi Vau’s atrocities or Simran’s zahreelay laddoos.

Rover’s ka Mutton burger & the first CCD

Cafes ke naam pe, initially we just we had a CCD which was a major hangout spot for students and oldies, alike. CCD was the ultimate place for us, where our first date happened, where we went after bunking classes and this place saw our tears too! It has been there with and for us, over the spanning years and our first mulaqaat with fancy kaffee took place here.

CCD has also taught us that it actually pronounced ‘mo-ka’ and ‘mo-cha’; so if we’re fluent at our Starbucks orders, you know who owns the credits.

Similarly, Rover’s was our initial eatery where we used to hog on the best mutton burgers in town and their Chicken Frankies were also quite a hit; in fact, it still is. After college hours and post-midnight, this is where you’d find the ‘cool kids’ in town.

Pagers & Phone Booths

Pagers and phone booths honestly feel pre-historic now, given the digital evolution we’re constantly facing! The last beeps we heard were way back in 2012 and since then, they have declined in numbers and usage has fallen too. Now we have cellphones to heed to our needs and even a 5yo child these days, has one for fun purposes!

Phone booths have witnessed our love stories, heartbreaks, long-distance relationships and the walls of it, have heard tales as old as time. These booths kept us connected to people and the queue for it has inculcated a serious sense of patience in us. Think twisted wires, phone directories, limited call times and expensive bills.

Gomti Barrage- End of Land

When Lucknow hadn’t faced the force of transformation, for us, Gomti Barrage was the end of the city and beyond these boundaries, we didn’t know what existed. This used to be a chill spot for people and for variations, people opted for Kasturba Gandhi Park and sometimes, the Nimbu Park too. In fact, Hathi Park has also seen quite a footfall because there were major power outage issues and for the sake of hanging out, these were the spots.

This was the time when Indira Nagar was also spreading its wings to form a sprawling colony, which it is today and the Gomti Nagar area was still unbrushed.

Knock Knock

When Twenty One Pilots sang, “Wish we could turn back time, to the good old days; when our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out”, we felt those words in our bones.

This was the era of long winters which began in October and stretched till February and makkhan malai used to go to our tumtums directly, before our social media handles.

All in all, the 90s was a really good time for us when it comes to living life to the fullest but if only we were in a Robert Schwentke movie (he directed The Time Traveler's Wife).

It is no news that air pollution is a leading concern of our modern society. With the onset of winters pollution has reached 'severe' levels in most cities and Lucknow hasn't been left untouched. The city is breathing in toxic air and the situation is alarming. The pollution is not only triggering existing respiratory issues but also giving birth to new cases of respiratory diseases, skin allergies and eye infections.

The situation is so dire that even our homes have not been left alone from the aftermath of this. Thankfully, new technology has enabled us to at least have a clean and pollution free environment indoors. Air purifiers and humidifiers have become a more essential to our homes than ACs. With the increasing pollution air purifiers have become a necessity. Honeywell is one of Lucknow fastest and biggest selling air purifiers, that is making our homes cleaner and safer.

Why even buy an air purifier?

We all know that we're breathing unhealthy toxic air which has become one of the major causes of diseases including respiratory issues, dry and itchy eyes, dry throats and skin allergies. The air quality index or AQI of Lucknow has constantly been in the 'very poor' category, fluctuating in the 330-370 range.

A haze of pollution has blanketed the entire city and breathing outside has become a full fledged task. The same has been happening inside our homes too, the blanket of pollution has invaded our homes and it is severely deteriorating our quality of life.

An air purifier hence, has become more of a necessity than a luxury. If you live in a household with small kids, elderly and sick people, having a clean indoor atmosphere is a must.

Why Honeywell?

Honeywell is a leading air purifier brand, they have been working on air purifiers for some decades now and have nailed the technology required to make our homes pollution free. Honeywell has a complete range of indoor air purifiers that makes our homes safe for the sick, elderly and the kids. Providing a pollution free environment, not for a single room but anywhere you want it.

The Honeywell purifiers come in a wide range of variety, from a mini version specifically for your car to a full sized version that can take on a small apartment. Medium and smart purifiers made specifically for small rooms and nurseries.

The sizes and the variations help you find the perfect fit for you home so that you and your family can breathe in clean and pollution free air.

Knock Knock

If you're worried about the effects of pollution on your health and that of your loved ones, an air purifier is your friend, especially during the winter season. With the pollution level crossing all charts and air quality deteriorating day by day, a clean and pollution free home is the only haven we can hope for. Honeywell is helping Lucknowites have the safe space, the haven they have been looking for.

So don't wait for the pollution to make a home in your home, get your Honeywell today.

Diwali is incomplete without a rangoli at our doorsteps so you can stock up on the colours here, available in various shades. We even found several shades of blue alone and the pricing starts at ₹20 for 100 gms and if you can bargain, seal the deal at ₹15.

You can even find organic colours, which come with a pocket pinch of ₹35 for 100 gms.
