During my last day in Varanasi we went on an all out Scrumptious Indian Street Food tour trying all of Varanasi’s famous dishes. We started the day by visiting one of the ghats for sunrise. It was extremely peaceful and spiritual experience, a must when in Varanasi.
Our first stop on our Indian Food Tour was Malai. This is like a creamy milk, yogurt, whipping cream. It’s sweet and delicious!
Stop number 2 was Puri Kachori, potatoes, tomato and a few more vegetable dish. You use a bread to eat it and it is a breakfast dish. We also had Jalebi a fried dough which is dipped in condensed sugar. To refresh our pallet we tried some Paan!
We took a quick food break and headed to Sarnath, the birthplace of Buddhism. The deer park in Sarnath is where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dhamma, and where the Buddhist Sangha came into existence through the enlightenment of Kondanna.
We headed back to Varanasi to end our Indian Street Food tour. We stopped at Deena Chat shop to try four dishes, Golgappas, Aloo Tikki, Tomato Chaat and Chura Matar. They were all so good, but my favorite was Chura Matar!
I hope you loved this Indian Street Food tour of Varanasi, and side trip to Sarnath! If you liked the video please give me a thumbs up, comment below and subscribe to my channel!
