Vikram Parantha Wala

Located just behind the Very Busy Andrew Ganj Flyover & Opposite the Vikram Hotel, Lajpat Nagar IV is the famous Parantha wala ... Located at One of the Corners this is Probably one Of the Oldest Places serving Paranthas in South Delhi. In the Night when one is driving from Defence Colony, the Strong Flavours of the Vaporised Oil would reach your nostrils just when you reach the Andrews Gunj Flyover. Another reason for this being so Popular, is that this place used to be serving Fresh, Piping hot Parantha till 3 am in the Morning, when the Young Delhi Pub hoppers, after spending their Moolah on the Fancy drinks, Discos, waned to grab something to fill their belly... Having personally witnessed many Party Hoppers, polishing off a hearty meal, But that was then

They serve a variety of Paranthas , namely Aloo, Aloo-Pyaaz, Gobhi, Paneer, Daal & Andaa Paranthas .. Andaa Parantha is the Most Popular here .... . A half done Parantha with aloo stuffing inside is placed on the Big Tawa, a generous splash of Oil is thrown on the Paranthas & you see the flaming up from the spot on the tawa where the oil is splashed .. The top Cover of the Parantha is just slightly slit. The Egg is then Poured inside the Parantha through this slit, & then pressed gently on the tawa for a while .. Served with a green chilly achaar & masala sprinkled on Top... The Parantha is really thick with a decent aloo stuffing inside which is not too spicy... The Crispness of Parantha is just right & you ca really feel the taste of nice Non spicy Omelette inside the Parantha . Quite a heavy bite, I must say considering the Oil thats gone in making it

Next i try the Gobhi Parantha, which again is a Typical North Indian Favourite.. The Gobhi used in the stuffed Paratha is generally the Cauliflower ... The Stuffing is quite nice & generous, very mildly spiced so one can taste the flavour of cauliflower as well, quite nice . I actually Liked the Gobhi Parantha much better than the All Time Hit, Andaa Parantha

2 Heavy Paranthas with 2 hot steamy Cups of Ginger tea for Rs 45...is quite a steal of a meal.. Visit for the experience as well
