The old RTO at Kapoorthala is known for a lot of things but the Chole Bhature wala is one of its best kept secrets. The guy stands behind the old RTO building and is a true institution when it comes to chole bhature and dahi badas. So, if you’re unaware of or have never been to the purane RTO’s chole bhature wala at Kapoorthala, here’s why you need to visit him now.
This stall is a blessing for anyone who is looking for good food but doesn’t want to spend a ton on it. The chole bhature here, are a little bit different from the regular one’s you get. The bhatura’s, like any good one’s, are quite fluffy, warm and deep fried goodness, but the chola they serves is unlike anything you’ll ever have.
The chole are delicately prepared in “Kabuli” style, where a simple boiled chick pea is seasoned with spices and veggies. This makes the chole go perfectly with the warm bhaturas and super spicy pickle. You’ve got to have a bite of the green chilli they serve, it’ll warm you right up.
Plus we get a fulfilling and frankly goo-tasting meal for a simple fee of ₹10, what more can we ask for?
Another thing you cannot look past is the dahi bada he serves. Though, mainly famous for the chole bhature, this guy is a master in making dahi badas.
Soft bouncy bada is submerged in a thick creamy yogurt mix that has the most perfect consistency. Adding to the already delicious dish is the sweet-tangy imli chutney, which is mandatory if you ask me.
So, the next time you are at Kapoorthala, make sure to go round the old RTO building complex and when you find a crowd, know that you’re at the right place.
