Secondly, we went to Natraj Dahi Bhalla Corner, across the road, from Paranthe wali Gali. They serve out of this world Dahi Bhallas, papri chat and IMG-20150424-WA0012 
Aloo Tikki.The Dahi bhallas are mixed with thick dahi along with hand picked and mixed masalas and mint and sweet chutneys. The golden fried Aloo Tikki is also very tasty.
Third stop is Jaleba Wala, serving hot crispy big jalebis since very very time. The Jalebis are just perfect and your search for right jaleby ends here. They IMG-20150424-WA0017 IMG-20150424-WA0019also serve samosas but go in for Jalebis only.
